The 5 Main Health Benefits Of A Float Spa

A float spa is commonly recommended by various doctors and therapists and while there may be some confusion about the many benefits that patients can enjoy, those who are familiar with the concept of a float spa are already well aware of these advantages. But what about a patient who has never been to one before?

This form of therapy also provides a form of escape for patients who are in need of a way to decompress. While this is one of the more obvious benefits to a patient, it is time to take a closer look at the health benefits of a float spa that some may not have taken the time to consider. Read on in order to learn more….

1) Systemic Detox

Float spas rely on waters that are designed to provide a great deal of therapeutic power. The waters that are used will allow all of the toxins that are dwelling beneath the skin to be brought to the surface and this provides the body with one of the most thorough systemic detoxes that can be received. The release of these toxins also serves to strengthen the immune system and remove biochemicals once and for all.

2) Medical Researching

Did you know that medical researchers often rely on the use of flotation spas in order to learn more about various forms of alternative medicine? A physician is typically not going to recommend that their patients rely on a treatment that is unconventional unless they have tried it themselves and there is no substitute for the knowledge that is gained as a result of undergoing this treatment.

3) Arthritis Relief

When joints start to become sore and creaky, a float spa can offer the tools that you need in order to relieve these types of pains. Studies have shown that the weightlessness a patient experiences while they are in the chambers that flotation therapy has to offer have a direct effect on the alleviation of stress related to arthritis. Joints and muscles heal much more quickly with this form of therapy.

4) Improved Athletic Performance

As you might have guessed, athletes and even those who just like to remain active will often rely on this form of therapy, as it offers immediate relief for their aching joints before and after extreme physical exertion. By utilizing spas such as these, those who participate in sports or other athletic activities can improve their overall stamina and avoid long term issues. More and more professional sporting clubs are now relying on flotation chambers to keep their players fresh.

5) Releasing Endorphins

The brain secretes certain neurochemicals and these hormones are largely responsible for how we think and feel on a daily basis. Each person creates these endorphins in differing amounts and various tests have proven that a stay in a flotation chamber helps to create the endorphins that allow us to experience happiness. Not only are the positive endorphins increased, but the negative endorphins are reduced, making for a much more positive state of mind for all patients.
