Cold Water Swimming!

Cold Water swimming at Sandford Parks Lido

Cold Water Swimming Lido

Cold water swimming has some amazing benefits to your physical & mental health.

Natural high
Cold water swimming activates the sympathetic nervous system and triggers your body to release beta-endorphins as well as other feel good hormones. These hormones help with pain relief and will leave you feeling euphoric.

Boosts immune system + improves circulation
Cold water swimming is not just fantastic for your cardiovascular as well as your lymphatic system (flushing out toxins) but also boosts your immune system. Exposure to cold water makes your body increase the production of white blood cells which play a key role in your immune system.

Helps with depression
Cold water swimming has been shown to improve the well-being of people suffering from asthma, rheumatism or fibromyalgia. And it can help with severe chronic depression.

Decreases inflammation which provides pain relief
When exposed to the cold, your body’s arteries narrow. This provides relief from pain, helps with sore muscles and reduces inflammation. Cold water swimming also increases the number of leukocytes in your blood. Apart from helping your body fight respiratory infections, they also protect against inflammation.
