Benefits of Floating
Floatation therapy is such a simple idea that some of the benefits seem too good to be true. However, they are real and scientific research has validated the health giving and performance enhancing effects.
It is well known that relaxing sleep in bed is essential to good health and often the best way to recover from stress and illness. Our bodies have amazing powers of recuperation and we just need the chance to relax to let these powers work.
Floating in a flotation therapy tank is even more relaxing. The deep relaxation state achieved allows the body to recover from stress. Pain is relieved. Blood flow is stimulated through all the tissues, natural endorphins are released, the brain gives out alpha and theta waves associated with relaxation and meditation. It feels good.
Usually it takes perhaps fifteen minutes to enter the first deep stage of relaxation, and the remaining 45 minutes of a typical hour-long session seem to pass quickly and effortlessly. The benefits begin during this stage but continue after you leave the tank and for the rest of the day, and the next day, your body and mind feel refreshed.
Benefits for your body
Speed up healing, promote muscle repair, and lower your blood pressure. 90% of your brain’s powerful resources are now focused inwards. The reduced tension lasts for days, or even weeks.
Optimise your Athletic performances
Spark rapid improvement and reach your peak, by practising visualisation in the tank. Train your central nervous system to produce the ‘perfect performance’, free of distraction.
Speed up your recovery in between workouts. The gravity-free environment reduces lactic acid and inflammation, compressing what normally takes a long period of time into hours.
Improve general well-being
Sleep better, work happier, feel good from the inside out. Soaking in Epsom salt rapidly replenishes your magnesium and sulfate levels. This relaxes your muscles, relieves headaches, flushes toxins, and many more.
Benefits For your mind
Rapid stress relief
90% of illness is stress-related. High cortisol levels for prolonged periods can wreck havoc on your health. By reducing sensory input, floating lowers your cortisol levels and blood pressure, sending you into deep relaxation.
Boost problem-solving and creativity
Explore new ideas easily as you gain greater access to your right hemisphere. Floating fast tracks your brain into theta state. In this relaxed space, it’s easy to practise self “reprogramming”, learn faster, or visualise things.
Gain mental clarity
Examine any situation uninterrupted as you free your mind from distraction. Every session trains you to get into a state of flow easily. Outside of the tank, it’s easier to focus and return to this state of mind.
Advance personal growth
Find it hard to quit addictive behaviour like smoking? With reduced sensory input, your mind is more receptive to new ideas. Because the effects manifest within you, they are more effective at transforming how you feel, think, and live.
