Release Contrast Method

Release is pleased to introduce Release Contrast Method to our Boston location, which leverages the power of combining hot and cold therapy to exponentially increase the benefits of both. Groups of up to 8 are led by a facilitator through alternating sauna and cold plunge sessions. The group begins in a sauna heated to 150 – 180 degrees for approximately 10 – 12 minutes, followed by a quick rinse and then a cold plunge cooled to between 37 and 50 degrees for about 3 minutes. This cycle is repeated 3 times for a total session of about 45 minutes. 

Throughout the session, the facilitator leads the group through breathing exercises, meditation and sharing. There are two distinct health and wellness trends occurring that Release Contrast Therapy sessions are uniquely positioned to address. One is an increased interest in how to optimize or reestablish our physical health while the other is in how we might ‘stop’ or diminish the painful increase in anxiety, loneliness and depression. Hot and cold therapy is uniquely positioned to address and aid both.

This powerful methodology provides the following benefits:

  • Improved Circulation: The alternating dilation and constriction of blood vessels are believed to improve circulation, which can help with muscle recovery and the delivery of nutrients to tissues.
  • Boosted Immune System: Regular cold exposure can boost the immune system, possibly due to the increased production of white blood cells, leading to fewer viral illnesses. 
  • Improved Mental Health: This practice can lead to the release of endorphins, or natural mood lifters in the brain, that can help reduce stress and anxiety. 
  • Increased Metabolism: The body burns calories as it works to regulate its temperature during the hot and cold exposures. This can potentially lead to a temporary boost in metabolism. 
  • Reduced Inflammation: Cold exposure has been shown to reduce inflammation which can be beneficial for people with inflammatory conditions or for reducing exercise-induced muscle soreness. 
  • Enhanced Stress Response: Regularly engaging in this practice can help train the body’s stress response, potentially making individuals more resilient to physical and mental stress.
