how it all began.

It all started when we, like you, were on a quest for cold tubs that offered the incredible benefits of cold water therapy. Straight off the bat we encountered a high barrier to entry – products not designed for purpose, exorbitant prices, lengthy shipping delays, and a lack of customer focus.

We knew there had to be a better way. That's when The Dope was born.

more than just a tub.

At The Dope, we're on a mission to democratise the benefits of wellness and recovery products and build a thriving community at the same time. Sure, working out makes you feel great – but when you look after yourself properly through the process alongside people who get you? That’s where we reckon the real magic is. 

Since our inception, the response has been overwhelming. We've connected with professional athletes, sports teams, health and wellness enthusiasts, and everyday individuals looking for transformation. We’re pretty proud of what we’ve started and it’s only up from here. 

When it comes to health and wellness, we’re here to redefine what's possible.

So, ready to feel the dopamine difference?
