our modalities.


This non-invasive service gently guides your mind away from stress and anxiety, leading you into a tranquil state akin to the early stages of sleep. Ideal for mental clarity, reducing anxiety, and improving sleep quality, NuCalm is an essential tool for anyone seeking to balance a busy lifestyle with mental wellness

ice baths

Plunge into our specially designed cold water baths to experience the immediate benefits of this age-old practice. Cold Water Therapy is excellent for reducing muscle inflammation, enhancing circulation, and improving mental focus. Our baths are set at 8 – 10degrees.

Infrared Saunas

Unlike conventional saunas, the infrared heat directly warms your body at a lower, more comfortable temperature, allowing for longer, more beneficial sessions. Ideal for muscle recovery, improving circulation, and stress relief, this serene experience helps in purging toxins, easing pain, and enhancing your overall wellbeing.

Compression Tech

Designed for athletes and active individuals alike, these boots use dynamic compression technology to enhance circulation, accelerate recovery, and alleviate muscle fatigue. Perfect after a rigorous workout or a long day, our Compression Boots help reduce swelling, improve lymphatic drainage, and soothe sore muscles. 


Compex is an innovative tool that uses electrical impulses to activate muscle fibers, aiding in strength development, recovery, and rehabilitation. Ideal for athletes and fitness enthusiasts, it helps in reducing muscle tension, accelerating recovery time, and preventing injuries.

Such an awesome place to go when you’re not feeling 100% or just want to maximise your recovery. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming with good knowledge on how everything works. I was most amazed by the Compex, I have struggled with quite severe back strain for months and am finally feeling little to no pain with just a few 30 minute sessions using the compex. All of the options they offer are amazing and I would 100% recommend to anyone looking to boost their recovery and general well-being.

Recovery lab is my Happy Place!!! I got a 10 day intro pack to try all the services; it was the perfect length to get into the hang of things. My favourite routine became: IR sauna, ice bath, and ending with Compex. After a week, I got on the #8minuteclub wall for staying in the ice bath for 8 mins. And on my last day I got up to 15 minutes! Staff are also super friendly and knowledgeable about the technologies on offer.

I'm on my third NuCalm session and I must say, this has been a blessing. Each session, without fail, leaves me feeling calm and focused. My brain seems to think better and feel more aligned. This complements my daily meditation practice perfectly and I cannot recommend it enough. Oh, and the staff who work there are such amazing humans. They have such a kind and friendly culture which is why I keep returning. Thanks!

This place is hidden gem! I was looking for a cold plunge/ice bath facility after having been diagnosed with an autoimmune situation in May.. a friend referred me here. Liz was extremely helpful and empathetic to my situation when I called to enquire about the fine print and logistics; booking is easy, pricing is super reasonable, they have infrared sauna/hot showers available just in case I "over due it," they were able to put my membership on pause during the "rough patches" and they respond to their socials/emails/phone calls immediately. Honestly could not have asked for more support. This form of therapy has been monumental in my recovery - highly recommend this place for anyone struggling with excessive inflammation post covid.
