CryoHome Ice Bath

Convert your household bath into an ice bath with the revolutionary CryoHome. No more shopping for ice – just drop in the hoses and relax while the water is pre-chilled to your desired temperature.

The quiet chiller can quickly chill your bath creating the perfect recovery modality whether you are an athlete, a Wim Hof student or practitioner, or just into conditioning your immune system through regular exposure to cold.

Create your very own cost effective ice bath at home that doesn’t require the space for a professional CryoSpa ice bath and eliminates the hassle and expense of constantly buying ice.

The compact CryoHome is less than 60cm (2 ft) long and 33cm (1 ft) wide. It looks smart, comes on wheels and can easily be stored away when not required.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question not answered?

How long should you stay in an ice bath?

The therapeutic effect is a factor of temperature and time. The colder it is, and the more penetrating that cold, then less time is required to cool the tissue to a therapeutic level.

Traditional ice baths consisted of adding ice to water and depending on the amount of ice versus the amount of water these ice baths could be as high as 10 or 12C [50 – 55F]. In these circumstances, the recommended dosage varied from 10 to 15 or even 20 minutes.

With modern digitally controlled ice baths, or CryoSpas, which chill by conduction and convection [i.e. the jets are creating a ‘wind chill’ effect], the average treatment time is typically 3 to 6 minutes.

What is the purpose of an ice bath after running?

The primary purpose of an ice bath is to aid recovery and reduce the level of DOMS [delayed onset muscle soreness].

The mechanisms include aiding normalisation of body temperature, flushing out muscles due to constriction of blood vessels & compression through hydrostatic temperature, a decrease in metabolic activity, balancing of the sympathetic & parasympathetic systems and a reduction in muscle damage.

Athletes report feeling more energised at the following training session and report reduced muscle soreness enabling them to train more effectively.

The other commonly reported consequence is that fatigue is reduced and fatigue is the main precursor of injury [Gregory Dupont et al]. Therefore, using an ice bath reduces fatigue and lowers the risk of injury.
