Cold therapy
Exposing ones body to cold temperatures is one of the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method. In recent years, cold body therapy has gained serious popularity, because it is linked to numerous health benefits. Some people, including professional athletes, bodybuilders, and celebrities even swear by whole body cryo therapy. This kind of therapy is characterized by standing in a sealed container for a short amount of time, while extremely cold air is circulated around the body. As whole body cryo therapy is relatively expensive and not widely available, methods like the Wim Hof Method provide an affordable alternative. You can practice the method from within the comforts of your home, by takinga cold shower, so you can already start reaping the benefits of cold body therapy today!

Benefits of cold therapy
Frequent exposure to cold is linked to a number of different health benefits. For example, scientists have found evidence that exposure to cold speeds up metabolism. Another benefit of exposing your body to cold is that it reduces inflammation, swelling, and sore muscles. Therefore, many athletes use ice baths and other types of exposure to cold as a means to speed up recovery after physical exercise. Furthermore, cold body therapy is also linked to improved quality of sleep, more focus, and even an improved immune response.

Cold is an important component of the Wim Hof Method, which is applied in the form of cold showers and ice baths. Participants of the WHM report health benefits that range from higher energy levels to relief of symptoms caused by autoimmune diseases"
