Wim Hof Breathing

While breathing should literally be the most natural thing we do, there are surprising ways that we can manipulate our own breathing patterns in order to encourage different physical and mental states. 

What is Wim Hof Breathing?

Wim Hof, who sometimes goes by the nickname “The Iceman,” is a Dutch extreme athlete who is well-known for his ability to withstand extremely cold temperatures. His specialized breathing techniques help to reprogram the body to withstand extremes more calmly, and are most efficaceous when combined with cold plunge therapy.

Think of it this way: if you can train your body to remain calm under controlled duress  (aka, train yourself to breathe calmly and slowly while getting into an ice bath), then when you’re faced with an extreme stressor in the uncontrolled sphere known as life, you will have techniques to draw upon that will immediately help you to calm your physiological response, which will then help you to more easily control your mental and emotional response.

Your Neuro Physique therapist can walk you through this process and technique when he or she helps to set up your initial treatment plan.
