My name is Maureen and I grew up and still live in the Ayrshire coast.
I’ve never really wanted to be anywhere else and it’s very much home. I Work for a local charity who do drug and alcohol recovery Work and spend much of the day doing complimentary therapies and relaxation. In 2017 I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia after having pneumonia and after struggling a couple of years, someone suggested cold water therapy. I was cold bathing but I’ve always sea dipped on Boxing Day (it’s a local tradition), so this year I convinced a friend to join me and by luck we met some members of the group. I haven’t looked back and now cold baths are a thing of the past and I dip 3 or 4 times a week in the sea. This group not only helped me get there but also helped me get more body confident and happy with who I am.
