We go feet first into Studio by JAB’s Infrared/CroSpa treatment and experience first hand the wellness treatment that’s all about getting you back to 100%
I’m all about trying new things in Hong Kong, whether that’s failing at water sports, sampling the incredible street food culture or testing vegan and plastic-free deodorants by Coconut Matters. As a devoted egg-chaser, my week is full of strength training, running and rolling which takes its toll on the body. However, Hong Kong’s fast-moving wellness community is now making recovery treatments more accessible for the average fit Hong Konger, rather than just the professionals. This week on Jak Tries, I’m checking out The Studio by JAB and their Infrared/CryoSpa treatments.
The Studio by JAB: Infrared/CryoSpa
There’s a lot of science behind sitting somewhere incredibly hot and then immediately sinking into somewhere very, very cold. But, essentially it’s all about recovery. Basically you’re jumpstarting the body’s recovery process, kicking your blood cells out of bed and sending them to any muscle tears.
Trainers at The Studio by JAB are incredibly knowledgeable and polite, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions. I undertook a 10 minute cycle between the Infrared sauna and Cryospa, alternating from one to the other three times. There’s nothing quite like lowering yourself into ice cold water, reliving that scene from Titanic and subsequently wiping beads of sweat from your brow. To some it might not be worth the psychological warfare, but if you lead a active intense lifestyle then it’s worth it. Afterwards it felt like someone had just hit refresh on my body and the icey horrors of the cryo chamber were long forgotten.
Not only is The Studio by JAB ideally located in the centre of Queens Road, Central, you have access to a expertly equipped gym, team of experienced trainers and a flexible price plan that is tailored to your lifestyle. The Infrared/CroSpa sessions are available at $300. You can also book either ten ($2,750) or twenty ($5,000) sessions at a reduced rate.
