What are the benefits of a plunge pool?

At Deep End Pools, we want to emphasise that a swimming pool is not only just for relaxation but it is the ultimate way for exercising and staying healthy. The latest trend that keeps your body feeling amazing is our cold plunge pools. While you might think the initial shock gives your body shivers, it has nothing but benefits for your body. See a few of the top benefits below: 

Plunge Pool

Fast Recovery

Going into ice cold water after doing a workout allows your body to recover more rapidly. This is because the cold water constricts blood vessels, reduces inflammation and speeds up the repair process. Therefore you can get back to training faster and say goodbye to sore muscles. 

Pain Relief

Similar to fast recovery the ice water can compress the blood vessels which can reduce swelling and inflammation. The cold water can also trigger the release of endorphins, natural pain relievers and mood-boosters. In particular this can provide significant relief for chronic pain conditions like arthritis.

Sleep Saviour 

If you struggle to sleep at night, a cold plunge pool is here to help. After an ice bath, your body works on getting back to your average body temperature. This process can trigger feelings of sleepiness as your body cools down again. 

Improved circulation

The sudden change in temperature from the cold water can cause your body to work harder to maintain its core temperature, which can improve circulation. This can lead to a number of benefits, such as improved heart health, reduced risk of blood clots, and better overall well-being. 

Boost metabolism 

Some studies suggest that cold water immersion may help to boost metabolism and promote weight loss. However, more research is needed to confirm this benefit. 


Deep End Pools offer a range of cold plunge pools which are designed to suit your needs. We prioritise safety and ease for you, so our team will guide you through every step, making the process stress-free. Please note that these benefits may not be fit for everyone so checking with your local GP is advised before use.
