Breathwork and cryotherapy
Ice bathing using the Wim Hof method

The health advantages of cold therapy have been recognized since the 19th century. For many biohackers, ice bathing has become an indispensable part of their routine. But what exactly is ice bathing, and what does it have to do with the Wim Hof method?


Wim Hof, also known as "The Iceman," is a Dutch extreme athlete. His breathing technique, known as the "Wim Hof Method," is believed to aid individuals in acclimating to extreme cold temperatures more effectively while also positively impacting their health. Wim Hof incorporates his unique breathing technique with cold therapy, as the scientifically validated breathing exercises help prepare the body for ice bathing.

Into the cold
Overcoming personal boundaries

More and more people are taking the plunge into cold water. When ice bathing, the water temperature is between 0° and 3° Celsius. Pretty cold, isn't it? The body's first reaction when it comes into contact with ice water is stress and panic. However, with the right breathing technique it's possible to counteract these sensations and induce relaxation.


For those easing into the practice, beginning with a cold morning shower is a gentle approach. Alternatively, one can gradually transition between hot and cold water in the shower. Another option is to take a refreshing dip in our plunge pool following a sauna session at the Schloss Spa, serving as excellent preparation for ice bathing.


Pro tip: Start by showering your feet, legs, hands, and arms with cold water before moving on to your upper body. This gradual exposure helps the body acclimate more smoothly to the cold temperatures.

    Is ice bathing healthy?

    Ice bathing offers numerous health advantages. Firstly, it strengthens the immune system and protects against infections. Secondly, the shock of cold enhances blood circulation and strengthens blood vessels, thereby enhancing cardiovascular health.


    For athletes, an ice bath post-exercise accelerates the body's recovery process, making ice bathing a popular practice among them.


    Nevertheless, caution is essential when ice bathing:


    • Never venture into an ice-cold lake for a swim alone; it's advisable to have a companion present in case of emergency.
    • Maintain your head above the waterline during ice bathing to prevent excessive heat loss.
    • Individuals with underlying health conditions should exercise extra caution; consulting a physician before ice bathing is recommended.

    "Ice baths offer a multitude of beneficial effects on the body: they strengthen the immune system, enhance stress resilience, and trigger the release of endorphins, or 'happiness hormones.' Personally, ice bathing has been transformative for me."
