Do you hate the cold? Me too! So why on earth would you try this therapy...? Because the health benefits will blow you away and the positive results start immediately.
I first heard about the Wim Hof Method a few years ago when I watched a short documentary about ‘The Ice Man’. The film showed how this Dutch athlete, Wim Hof, taught two reporters how to walk up a freezing snowy mountain in their shorts, resisting the cold by using a breathing technique and ‘cold therapy training’. I filed it in my mind as a bit mad, curious, and not relevant to my daily life.
However, what I really didn’t pick up from the documentary was the potential for extraordinary health benefits from this simple, accessible technique.
