The Hot and Cold

The hot and cold is an experience that is associated with the heightened sense of relief that comes from discomfort. 

The fire kicking ablaze on a freezing night. 

The ice cream on a summer's day.

The warm water over cold hands. 

The bathhouse is the place where the tactility of hot and cold is taken to an exclusive occurrence. 

The full body immersion sinking into the bath.

The envelope of dry heat stepping into the sauna; the hot; wet mist of the steam room. 

The numbing sharpness of the ice plunge.

The welcome warmth of the shower after. 

The sensations of hot and cold are rejuvenating when enjoyed in conjunction with each other.
