#23 The Magic Of Cold Water Therapy with Heather Ashley
Show Notes

Back in August I did something I thought I'd never do.  I lay in a bath FULL of ice for 2 minutes!

Having always had a dislike for the cold, it was only after I'd read about the benefits of cold water therapy, particularly for women going through menopause, that I thought I'd see what it's all about so when I saw that there was a Wim Hof workshop happening locally, I signed up.

The workshop was run by the brilliant Heather Ashely who led us through some breath work, movement and to finish with, an ice bath!

I found the experience truly transformational and the best bit was the five day natural high the following week!

I'm now a cold water convert and am so delighted that I got to chat to Heather on the podcast.

As well as being a Wim Hof Method instructor, Heather is also a Health coach, nutritional therapist, PT and last but not least, a healthy habit creator.

I loved this episode as Heather shares so many practical tips how you too can experience the benefits of cold water therapy, even if you don't live near the sea! 

Come and have a listen to discover: 

  • How and why Heather got into cold water therapy
  • What the Wim Hof method is
  • The benefits of cold water therapy
  • How cold water therapy is particularly helpful for women in peri/menopause
  • How to get started with cold water therapy even if you don't live near the sea
  • How long you should stay in for
  • How to warm up safely
