There’s a reason why it works…

We know that cold water dipping can give us a natural ‘high’

Going from hot to cold in a ‘Nordic Style’ Sauna session can make that feeling even more intense. WholeHealth member Leigh has a BSc in neurochemical psychology and so she explained to us WHY it feels so good!

“Doing things that create a dopamine flood (like cold water swimming) increase your ability to consistent absorb more and more dopamine. This is why ROUTINE works. The more you do it, the more your body can absorb 👍🏼. Particularly important when our levels are low, like during the cold dark winter months 😊” 

Leigh explains the theory to us- from the lake!
