‘Stories from the Sea’ – a look at the increasingly popular obsession of plunging into the big blue. Often referred to as “cold water therapy”, just how therapeutic is it, really?

If you’re feeling inspired to dive in, please do start by contacting one of the groups mentioned – cold water therapy coach Kate can be found at SoulAdventures.im, Open Water Coach Kirsty can be found here and the Manx Bluetits have a very active Facebook page and be sure to check with your GP if you have any medical concerns before getting in cold water.
