Ice bath & wellness workshop

Do you want to become healthier, more vital, happier and stronger? Do you experience stress, setbacks or depressive feelings that you want to learn to deal with better? Then expose yourself to a new challenge: the ice bath. A must on every bucket list, no matter what your goal is!


Would I go into a bathtub with ice?

Stepping into an ice-cold bath initially goes against nature. We have a natural aversion to cold. Cold temperatures are associated with an uncomfortable, unpleasant feeling and anxiety. Yet an ice bath has both physical and mental benefits. You get more energy, you recover faster (after an athletic effort, for example), you sleep better and you improve blood circulation. By stepping into an ice bath, you learn to become comfortable in uncomfortable situations. You learn to release stress without fighting and become aware of your own body and breathing. Thermae 2000's basic philosophy "Mens Sana in Corpore Sano," a healthy mind in a healthy body, fits perfectly with this.

Structure of the workshop

Duration: 90 minutes

 After an extensive preparation in which theory about cold training and ice baths is explained, various breathing exercises are performed according to the Wim Hof method. This trains your mindset and prepares you well for the ice bath. Under the guidance of a professional instructor from Messcherp, you then step confidently into the ice bath. When you come out of the bath, a few exercises will follow to warm up your body again. Afterwards you can enjoy all day of all the extensive spa and wellness facilities and apply the knowledge you have acquired immediately in practice. For example, Thermae 2000 has various cold showers and plunge pools to get out of the cold, and various rest rooms to get started with breathing exercises.

About Messcherp

The trick is to teach people how to influence that Mindset. And so that an unpleasant situation does not have to determine that you feel and act accordingly. And that you therefore have the power to make a conscious (different) choice. We make people aware and hopefully a little healthier and happier.
