Reasons To Include Float Therapy In Your Routine

In the pursuit of your daily goals, it is easy to neglect taking care of yourself first. The immense pressure balancing work and home can often lead you to feel stressed or burned out. This calls for some much needed self-care!

There are several ways to unwind and de-stress but one of the best ways to invigorate your mental, physical and emotional state is including float therapy which will help you maintain a healthy life. Read on to learn how float therapy is beneficial for your body:

In sleeping better

Even just one hour of float therapy can have positive effects on your mental health. During float therapy, you are completely cut off from all external stimuli, thus freeing your mind up to relax and feel rejuvenated. Float therapy can help decrease the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, as the brain enters the theta brainwave state typically associated with deep sleep. 

In detoxifying

The float tank which used for sensory deprivation contains a highly concentrated Epsom salt solution. The magnesium content of Epsom salt is an effective tool for detoxification. By stimulating your body’s cell activity, the magnesium helps flush out toxins in the body.

In relieving body pain

Float therapy can help alleviate muscle cramps and stiffness. One hour in a float tank removes muscular tension from the body and helps you relax further as you simply float. Float Therapy is extremely beneficial especially for those undergoing physiotherapy.

In reducing stress levels

Float therapy helps you achieve a state of calmness of both your body and mind. With float therapy, as all sensory experiences are cut off; you neither see nor hear nor smell. With no need to focus on external factors, your mind can focus within: your cells and tissues regenerate at a much faster speed, restoring your body to its peak state.

In meditating

To properly meditate, you need to unplug from any distraction in your daily surroundings and reconnect with your inner self. You can achieve this through floatation therapy.
