The New York Knicks forward posted this picture on his Instagram account this week.

It isn’t the first time he has done this, either. Stoudemire told ESPN that he has been taking these red wine baths for six months.

This is strange, for a number of reasons, but Stoudemire says there is a method to his madness.

He told ESPN:

The red wine bath is very important to me because it allows me to create more circulation in my red blood cells. Plus, it’s very hot, so it’s like a hot tub. But it’s also the red wine… just kind of soothes the body.

Taking red wine baths isn’t simply a concoction of Stoudemire’s, it’s actually a renowned practice called vinotherapy or vinotherapie (depending on whom you ask, apparently).

The most notable benefit of these baths, it seems, is the way they help fight against aging skin.

For Stoudemire, however, red wine baths appear to be helping the whole body.

He said,

After doing that recovery day, my legs felt rejuvenated. I felt great, so I’m going to continue to do that for sure.
