When it comes to the benefits of wild bathing, there are almost too many to count. Immersing yourself in cold water triggers your body’s natural stress response, which leads to the release of stress hormones and forces you to come into the present moment, providing a clear sense of focus. It can also boost dopamine levels, increase endorphins in the body, facilitate better circulation and lead to improved sleep and exercise recovery.
This is why we encourage all our guests to experience wild bathing here at Cabilla – we are so lucky to have the River Bedalder running through our private ancient oak woodland and temperate rainforest.
We recommend combining a wild bathing and woodland sauna experience to maximise the restorative effects.
