Ice swimming is a russian method of strengthening health through inuring the body to cold.
It is treating with very low temperatures and it is supposed to increase the immunity of one's body (efficacy of their immune system).
It's something like hydropathy with gradually decreasing temperatures: dousing, "snow bathing" and ice swimming.
We name it "Zakalyvanie" and I highly doubt that there is a word for "organism hardening/staining in icy water" in English.
Most likely, russian word "Zakalyvanie" translates as "hardening the body".
The concept of "hardening" includes everything from taking a plunge of winterbathers in icy water, to cold shower or simply sleeping with open window.
