Ryan Schroder

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!

On completion you will receive a certificate from the Holistic and Wellness Course Academy which is accredited by the International Practitioners of Holistic Medicine and is insurable via FHT, Westminster, Balens and others.  In order to call yourself a Cold Water Therapy Practitioner and to start practicing as one you will need to have the relevant insurance.  I recommend Westminster who insure people in the UK, USA and Canada.  Westminster do really good cover and are great to deal with and many people I train often switch over to them.   They will need to see that you have the relevant first aid certificate AND they will likely need to see that you are a member of the awarding body, in this case IPHM.  Price for IPHM membership is £12 per month (or the equivalent in US/CAD dollars).  You can join the IPHM if you reside in ANY country, but you will need to source your own insurance company if you are outside UK, USA or Canada.  Instructions on how to join the IPHM will be sent to you on completion of the course.
