What is the The Thermalist Cure™?

This is a health journey - in bite-size!

You will learn how to -stress up to stress down - to increase your longevity.

It's a way to reconnect body and mind and keep it in its optimal natural state.  Healthy stress of the cold, the heat and navigated by the breath build your cells stronger, increase your metabolism and strenghen the nervous system.
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 wisdom is backed by science - and we discovered how much and how.

Based on this, and with Dr. Susanna Søbers research and practice she named the practice; Thermalist
®  and created The Thermalist Cure™ to teach you how to use this in a healthy and safe way.

Dr. Susanna Søberg 

Science Is the basis of The Soeberg Institute

Dr. Susanna Søberg, Ph.d in metabolism. In my PhD, we discovered the minimum threshold (or the sweet spot) of cold and heat exposure for health benefits.

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 improve your health, manage stress, and optimize performance. My aim is to teach you these behavioural tools.

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 book, where I described the many science proven benefits about cold water immersion and sauna - told in an easy every-day language. "Winter swimming" is now published in 13 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 science, my knowledge and experience.

Take care of yourself

Avoid cold water immersion if you suffer from:
• Untreated coronary artery disease and/or chest pain (angina pectoris).
• Untreated high blood pressure.
• Serious heart rhythm disturbances.

• Careful if you suffer from panic attacks. The cold chock can be very overwhelming for the nervous system. I advise you to go with an educated Thermalist Cure Instructor (education available soon...).

Cold water immersion is a physically challenging 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 cold water immersion and contrast therapy is appropriate for you, you are advised to consult a doctor before participating.
