Turns out, in addition to providing 60 minutes of blissful relaxation, making you feel really great, it has some big health benefits, too.
A powerful way to replenish our bodies, floatation therapy is a simple, effective way to invest in your health, happiness and well-being. Are you wondering what floating can do for you? Check out the physical, intellectual, and spiritual healing benefits of floating, also known as sensory deprivation, below and how it can help you feel better, think better, and live better.
Improve Sleep/Relief from Fatigue
While the benefits of floatation therapy can differ from person-to-person or from float-to-float depending on the individual, many people report remarkably improved sleep, deeper rest, along with notable relief from fatigue, beginning with the very first float. In addition, a regular floating practice can help you sleep even better and boost energy levels.
Tame Tension Headaches & Treat Chronic Pain
Tight neck? Tense shoulders? Relief is just a float away. This is especially true in the case of back pain which is also one of the leading causes of trips to doctor’s offices in the United States. The healing Epsom salts (made from the minerals magnesium and sulfate) used in float tanks help relieve pain and inflammation, also helping ease tension headaches and migraines.
Arthritis Relief & Joint Pain
Float tanks offer the perfect combination of two natural therapeutic treatments for joint stiffness: Epsom salts and relief from gravity. Many floaters who suffer from arthritis have found that taking pressure off the joints while floating can help alleviate stiffness associated with arthritis and have found significant relief from arthritic pain. In addition to reducing inflammation and alleviating stiffness, the Epsom salts used in float tanks, high in healing magnesium, are also known to relieve joint pain.
Boost Muscle Recovery
Did you know that in many cases our pain comes from inflammation of muscles? The healing properties of Epsom salts used in floating help relax and soothe sore muscles, reduce swelling, ease pain, and even boost muscle recovery.
Lowers Blood Pressure & Heart Rate
It’s common knowledge that floating is the perfect therapy for promoting relaxation. Did you know a session in a float tank can lead to reduced blood pressure and a slowed heart rate? If you suffer from high blood pressure, floating in healing Epsom salts may be helpful in lowering your blood pressure and improving your heart health.
Reduce Stress, Anxiety, & Cortisol Levels
While floatation therapy combines the soothing elements of water with meditation, promoting overall well-being, experts are finding that the healing therapy of salt tanks can also help ease anxiety and reduce levels of stress hormones such as cortisol. Float therapy is particularly effective because it not only reduces stress in individuals by removing outside stimuli, but also repairs and reverses the negative effects stress has on the body, helping you achieve a deeper state of relaxation, while connecting body, mind, and spirit in a way not easily achieved by other forms of stress therapy.
If you suffer from chronic stress, pain, insomnia or experience regular anxiety, floatation therapy offers a gravity-free environment where you can float your cares away and ease the harmful cumulative effects of stress.
