A beautifully illustrated exploration of cold-water traditions in Scandinavia and around the world, and a thorough account of why it provides such a boost to body and soul.

Whether in lake, lido, river or sea, we know the benefits of swimming outdoors and in nature - environmentally friendly and accessible, it can influence our happiness, our energy and our inner tranquility. WINTER SWIMMING takes this one step further, as contact with cold water all year round can also have a significant positive impact on our physical health, confidence and well-being.

Danish scientist Susanna Søberg leads us step by step into the icy water and explains the "cold-shock response", the massive endorphin rush as our body reacts and adapts. Not only do our circulation, heart, lungs and skinrespond positively, but our immune system and metabolism too. Most specifically she explains how our "brown fat" is activated to benefit multiple health conditions.

WINTER SWIMMING is both a beautifully illustrated exploration of cold-water traditions in Scandinavia and around the world, and a thorough account of why it provides such a boost to body and soul.
