Brodie Wellness Center

101 W 41st St Unit 6, Sioux Falls, SD 57105


We opened Brodie Wellness Center in honor of Dr. Leon Brodie who uses hyperbaric therapy to help many people suffering with various conditions that conventional medicine cannot treat. His journey with hyperbaric therapy started when his wife was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) and he was looking for a way to make her well. Her mother died from the same disease so he was not going to let this happen to his wife. He heard about the advanced hyperbaric therapies in Europe and was going to fly out there for treatment however after speaking to some friends he discovered the portable hyperbaric chambers you can buy in the USA and purchased a chamber to treat his wife. After only three treatments, the symptoms of ALS started going away. Dr. Brodie saw the potential of the therapy for so many other people struggling with similar conditions.

Over the years he has helped many others with non-healing wounds (even those who were scheduled for amputations), those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Lyme Disease, TBI/PTSD and many others.

What is cold therapy?

Cold therapy is a form of cold stress that will activate the body’s internal healing mechanisms. There are many forms of cold therapy tubs and chambers that will give you all of the benefits of cold therapy. These methods may include using a chiller combined with cold plunge, or adding ice to a cold tub or ice barrel. Most commonly cold therapy is used for athletic recovery or mental clarity.

What are the benifits of a cold plunge?

Some of the benefits of using a cold plunge may include pain relief, recovery, mental focus, body health, lowering inflammation in the body, and better sleep.

What is the difference between and Ice Bath and a Cold Plunge?

The difference between an ice bath and a cold plunge is that you typically don’t have to add ice to a cold plunge with a chiller unit. With an ice bath you will simply add the ice, and drain the tub when finished. With a cold plunge the chiller will circulate and filter the water so there will be less frequent draining and filling the tub.

What is the optimum temperature for an ice bath?

The optimum temperature really depends on the individual and the goals they may have. The standard temperature is 50-59 degrees F for at least 5-10 minutes. Although, high performance athletes may use colder temperatures between 42-50 degrees F with a duration of 3-6 minutes.

Are ice baths healthy?

Yes, as a general statement ice baths are healthy for you if they are used correctly. Before using any of our ice baths or cold plunges please read the manufacturer's suggestions on temperatures and time in the water. If you have more specific questions on the health benefits don’t hesitate to fill out the contact us form below.

Is an ice bath better than a cold shower?

Although there is value to taking a cold shower every now and then. Ice baths and cold plunges will have an immediate effect on your entire body. The only way to truly reach consistent application of the cold is to fully submerge the body for a set duration of time.

How long should you soak in an ice bath or cold plunge?

The standard temperature is 50-59 degrees F for at least 5-10 minutes. Although, high performance athletes may use colder temperatures between 42-50 degrees F with a duration of 3-6 minutes. 

How do you take an ice bath?

For beginners the best way is to submerge your body into the water while keeping your hands and head above the water. Focus on your breathing and remain calm as the first few minutes are always the hardest. Typically the bath would last about 5-10 minutes. 

More experienced methods may include a quick head dunk into the water and keeping hands in the water for full recovery benefits. We also recommend using a colder temperature for a shorter amount of time.
