The popularity of cold water therapy is on the rise as people look for alternative ways to manage pain and inflammation, boost their immunity, lose weight, improve mental health and keep themselves adapted to stress.
I really liked the course and as someone who has been practicing cold water exposure it has given me the insight that i am on the right track. Especially with the research I've done myself on the nervous system and Vegas nerve. Thank you for the course and i will be recommending it to anyone interested in learning about cold water exposure.
Thank you very much for such an amazing course! I completed all the modules, read through most of the studies and Youtube videos as well, and completed the test.
I enjoyed how you brought in your personal connections and anecdotes into the course content. It made for more engaging learning of the material.
I am looking to start offering ice bath and breathwork classes at my apartment building in NYC as there are no natural bodies of water to jump in for free! I have been doing cold showers and ice baths for the past 2 months and really feel the mental and physical benefits. I hope to be able to teach others and create a new community!
