Life At Nature's Pace

Cold Immersion

Cold water therapy is the practice of using cold water to support health and well-being by encouraging the release of healing hormones, changing neural pathways and creating adaptations within the body.. There is a long history documenting the benefit of cold therapy for human health; and research continues today. Many cultures have utilized this practice around the world to ease muscle pain and fatigue and to support health and wellness. Today, we take this ancient healing modality and apply it to our life through ice baths, wild swimming, cold immersion and cold showers. 

This practice of cold water therapy has many benefits including:

:: boosts immune system

:: improves cellular function

:: increases metabolic function

:: decreases pain & inflammation

:: supports recovery and healing

:: benefits circulatory system & blood flow

:: improves response to stress

:: boosts energy and improves mood

:: increases confidence and resiliency

:: improves sleep

Practicing cold therapy floods the body with norepinephrine; a hormone and neurotransmitter found and released naturally in the brain and body during a fight/flight response. This response increases energy, mood, attention and focus while decreasing inflammation and bringing blood-flow to vital organs and retaining heat through vasoconstriction.


In addition to the list of physical benefits, cold exposure creates the space for deep, true connection to self. Controlled uncomfortable situations support us overcoming our stress response and teach us how to tap into our inner strength and resiliency. This benefits us in the cold water, and in life.
