Wim Hof Method

(Tummo, Cryotherapy)

Wim Hof is known as the Iceman, as he set multiple Guiness world records in cold exposure. His method is inspired by the Tibetan practice of tummo meditation, Yogic breathing techniques and his own experience. It combines deep, forceful breathing with suspending the breath, eliciting changes in blood and tissue oxygenation. An important aspect of the Wim Hof method is also regular exposure to cold. According to scientific research, practicing Wim Hof method may allow the practitioner to tap into the autonomic nervous system and control his immune response.
