  • Private workshops are also possible at other locations, provided we can guarantee the safety of the participants at the location.
  • The breathing sessions are held in a high open horticultural greenhouse (see photos on site).
  • There is a lot of ventilation from skylights and sliding doors can be opened on two sides.
  • There is an option to monitor outside of the breathing session.

Increase your mental resilience and optimize your physiology

An ice bath workshop to remember

In Bart’s Below Zero ice bath workshop participants learn about the seven foundations of the Below Zero Method. The ice bath works as an extremely powerful physiological stimulus, propelling the body into a fight/flight/fright response.

During the ice bath workshop, participants learn to relax their body while this response takes place and learn to gain control over this response. Participants will teach their body to cope with stress and optimize several autonomous bodily processes. Participants will strengthen their mental durability and optimize their physiology.

Making people aware that they can optimize their own health

About Bart Biermans

After his medical studies, Bart Biermans founded two medical cosmetic clinics. However, even during his studies Bart had come to realize that true health cannot be achieved using a classical Western medical approach. The system underlying the Western medical approach has practitioners focusing mainly on acute intervention, usually paired with medicine. As a result, numerous sufferers from chronic disease fall to the wayside. Sadly, for them few solutions seem to exist here …

Over the last ten years, Bart has been seeking a more fitting definition of health. His quest lead him past scores of international health centers, nutrition centers and self-improvement resorts to the ice bath / cold training, and most recently a 4-year course and practitioner’s degree in Essential Therapy. It all came together when Bart combined his acquired knowledge and expertise into a new approach: the Below Zero Method.
