The Wim Hof Method

What is the
Wim Hof Method??

Over time, as humans, we have developed a different attitude towards nature and we have forgotten about our inner power. This is our body’s ability to adapt to extreme temperatures and survive in our natural environment. The Wim-Hof method is based on this principle.

 

Because we wear clothes and artificially control the temperatures at home and at work, we have greatly reduced the natural stimulation of our bodies and stunted the age-old mechanisms of our survival and basic function. Because these deeper physiological layers are no longer triggered, our bodies are no longer in contact with this inner force. The inner power is a powerful tool that can be reawakened by stimulating these physiological processes through the Wim Hof Method.

The Wim Hof method is based on three strong pillars

Cold therapy

Cold therapy

The cold is your warm friend and one of the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method. Proper exposure to cold leads to a cascade of health benefits, including accumulation of brown adipose tissue and resultant fat loss, reduced inflammation, which allows for a strengthened immune system, balanced hormone levels, improved sleep quality and the production of endorphins.

Breathing therapy

Breathing therapy

The second pillar of the Wim Hof Method is breathing. We are always breathing, but we are hardly aware of its enormous potential. Increased oxygen levels are a true treasure chest and the special breathing technique of the Wim Hof Method unearths those benefits: more energy, less stress and an enhanced immune response that quickly deals with pathogens.

Commitment

Commitment

The third pillar of the Wim Hof Method is the basis of the other two: both cold exposure and conscious breathing require patience and dedication to be fully mastered. With concentration and determination, you are ready to explore and eventually master your own body and mind.
