Floatation therapy offers a variety of benefits for your physical and mental well-being by creating an environment that eliminates the sensations of sight, sound and gravity. Floating gives our bodies a much-needed break, while offering solutions for many of the problems we often encounter. We are constantly bombarded with the stressors of everyday life and it's easy to let them pile up. Managing your stress is key to leading a healthy lifestyle, and floatation can help you achieve a more relaxed state of mind.
Floatation also helps with many other ailments, specifically pain. Since the effects of gravity are diminished (thanks to the Epsom salt), your body is able to float effortlessly, relieving pressure on your joints and allowing your muscles to completely relax. Your body is suspended, free of any pressure points, which can aid in reducing pain and muscle tension. A May 2006 study, published in the International Journal of Stress Management, found that participants with stress-related pain who floated for 12 sessions showed a decrease in pain, stress, anxiety and depression, while sleep quality, optimism and prolactin increased. Floatation provides an environment that can help activate an altered state of consciousness, which allows for dream-like imagery and helps with creativity, problem solving, and even intuition.
Floating offers something for everyone. Whether you need stress relief, pain relief, or just time to yourself, floatation is the solution to help you become a better you.
