Snow’s holistic cool-down: Embracing inclusivity in post-sauna rituals
04 Sep 2023
/ TechnoAlpin
Regardless of physical abilities or sensitivities, snow therapy means everyone is able to enjoy the beneficial effects of cold
– Sara Brenninger, TechnoAlpin Indoor product manager
In the world of wellness, the age-old tradition of sauna bathing is synonymous with relaxation, detoxification and rejuvenation. But, a crucial and sometimes overlooked part of the journey is the all-important cooldown.

Traditional cooling methods such as cold-water immersion might not suit everyone, especially those with chronic illnesses and high sensitivity to pain.

With TechnoAlpin Indoors’ gentle snow solutions – the Snowroom and Snowsky, the cool-down process is now accessible for all and offers holistic benefits regardless of age, physical fitness and cold sensitivity.

Holistic and gentle cooling

Cold therapy has long been hailed for its array of health benefits, from reducing inflammation and easing discomfort to improving circulation.

TechnoAlpin says its snow therapy applications are particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic pain or conditions like inflammatory rheumatic diseases, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and circulatory and sleep disorders.

The rejuvenating sensation of a snow-filled room offers a cooling effect not only on the respiratory tract but also invigorates the skin, promoting an overall sense of refreshment.

This gentle cooling process prevents the shock often associated with abrupt temperature changes, making it a safe and comfortable option for everyone.

Cooling relief

Following a study into the Snowrooms by Dr Christian Thuile*, a 49-year-old female participant stated:

"Having lived with rheumatism for several years, I was told that only extreme cold (down to -100°C) would provide relief.

“I can honestly say that even the first few minutes in the Snowroom at only -10°C already had a very positive effect. This only improved during my second and third visits."

Access and diverse needs

From a building perspective, accessibility has been meticulously crafted into every detail of the Snowroom.

Thoughtfully designed doors ensure easy entry for individuals using wheelchairs, while the minimum dimensions provide a spacious environment for all to enjoy.

But inclusivity goes beyond physical access – it's also about catering to diverse needs. The room's snow and cold temperatures have been purposefully curated with individuals with allergies in mind. This way, everyone – regardless of physical abilities or sensitivities – is able to enjoy the beneficial effects of cold.

Breaking cultural barriers

One of the most remarkable aspects of snow as a cooling agent is its universal appeal.

Regardless of cultural background, the sight and feel of snow elicit wonder and fascination, plus the incorporation of snow into the cool-down process introduces an element of surprise and delight that transcends cultural boundaries.

Snow's inclusivity and accessibility invite everyone to explore the advantages of cold therapy without fear or apprehension.
