Plunge pools are small pools usually used for lounging, wading or therapy. They are typically 4’0” depth or less, however, these small shallow pools, if used for therapy, can be deep-plunge pools. The plunge pool design is also great for low impact aquatic exercise. The perfect addition to one’s in-home spa.
Plunge pools, hot or cold, have incredible benefits when used for therapeutic/aquatic rehabilitation. Cold therapy reduces swelling and inflammation while heat therapy relieves muscle tension and promotes circulation. When used together, the intense hot to cold temperatures increase one’s heart rate, releasing endorphins thus lifting one’s mood.
The benefit of a small pool design is not only therapeutic but also space saving, low in maintenance and reduces environmental impact. To learn more about how we can customize a plunge pool for your home, contact ALKA POOL today.
