Hot & cold therapy

Hot and cold therapy for enhanced recovery

The Recovery Area at Yama PT includes a cold plunge, hot tub, and an infrared sauna. We offer a variety of packages to best suit your goals, whether you are looking to decrease inflammation, improve muscle recovery, increase energy, or the other many benefits of heat and cold exposure.

The Recovery Area is for anyone 18 years of age and older without any cardiovascular or heart conditions. Please consult with your physician first if you have any health concerns prior to scheduling. With the consent and supervision of the parent, a child as young as 13 may use the facility.

Fire & Ice

Fire & Ice is a 60-minute class where two people can participate, so grab a friend! In the class, you can choose from the sauna or hot tub as your source of heat. After spending approximately 10-20 minutes in heat each person will dunk into the cold tub for as long as they can tolerate (2-5 minutes).

Studies show that 60 minutes of heat exposure and 10 minutes of cold exposure a week are recommended to reach maximum benefits of the therapies. By participating in the Fire & Ice class, you receive all the heat and cold exposure in one visit.

The benefits of cold exposure: increases metabolism (helps lose weight), increases focus/mental acuity, increases dopamine (feeling happier), increases energy, increases mental strength, decreases inflammation (increases recovery).

Infrared Sauna

At Yama Physical Therapy we boast a top-of-the-line infrared sauna made by Clearlight Infrared Saunas. This is a “3 person” sauna that can achieve temperatures up to 160+ degrees, which most infrared saunas do not. It also has the lowest EMF ratings out of any sauna, which means it is the safest for the person using it.
