What is the The Thermalist Cure™?

This is a way to reconnect body and mind and keep it in its optimal natural state. Our metabolism and central nervous system is build for the healthy stress of the cold, the heat and navigated by the breath.
The fight and flight system was build for our survival in
 a merciless natural environment during our evolutionary history. This kept our metabolism up and our minds in a balance. Today our health is missing out on these healthy natural stressors. All at the same time more sedentary work and technology has enchanted our minds. The evidently increase in stress, anxiety and depression, calls for new actions (WHO).
Thermalism - the stress contrast of heat and cold was practiced and adviced by Hippocrates and Socrates - our early philosophers, as a cure for the body and mind. Today, their intuition is backed by science. 
Based on this, and with Dr. Susanna Søbers research and practice she named the practice; Thermalist
®  and created the The Thermalist Cure™

Dr. Susanna Søberg 

Science Is the basis of The Soeberg Institute

Dr. Susanna Søberg, Ph.d in metabolism - the scientist that discovered the minimum treshold of cold and heat exposure to gain healthbenefits.

I'm the founder of "The Soeberg Institute", "The Thermalist Cure" and "The Soeberg Principle" (the later named by Stanford University Professor Dr. Andrew Huberman).
My research gives you a scientifically proven protocol for how little cold and heat exposure you need to gain health benefits. The 11 minutes cold and 57 minutes heat per week has become a safe rule of thumb.

I'm here to educate you in how to use cold, heat and your breath as a safe way to manage stress, improve your health, optimize performance so that you can live a happier life.

I started my science career in 2013 and since then, I have communicated science in talks, events, workshops, podcasts, on TV and conferences all over the world. In this way I have educated and encouraged thousands of people worldwide to improve their physical and mental health using cold, heat and breathwork to get the best out of their lives with optimized performance.

In 2019 I published my debut book "Winter swimming" - a motivational guide, where I described the many science proven benefits about winterswimming and sauna - told in an easy every-day language. "Winter swimming" is now published in 14 languages. 
Based on years in human research, reading and writing science about metabolism and stress, I now practice communicating science in an easy and practical way. In The Soeberg Institute I offer you my teaching based on my knowledge and experience.

(Recommendation from The Danish Heart Association, www.hjerteforeningen.dk)

Cold water immersion is a physically challanging activity and, as with all physical activities, it carries a risk of personal injury. As such, it may not be suitable for everyone. If you are unsure whether winter swimming is appropriate for you, you are advised to sonsult a doctor before participating.
