Floatation Beats Stress
Floatation & Stress
Whether it's a short-term frustration like a traffic jam or a major life event like divorce or job loss, psychological stress can affect our bodies in so many ways.
The good news is there is a natural alternative. Here’s how float therapy can help reduce your everyday chronic stress.
1. Floating Reduces Cortisol, The Stress Hormone
Floatation has been clinically proven that it helps decrease cortisol levels, a hormone released in the bloodstream during stressful situations.
Stress, Muscle loss and fat gain; Brain fog & low sex drive; Fatigue and Depression are just some of the symptoms of chronically high cortisol levels.
2. Similarities to a Natural Anti-Anxiety Drug
A float tank provides a weightless environment that when combined with pitch darkness and silence, creates sensory reduction which helps slowing down the brain which results in releasing theta waves, and acts like when a brain is in deep meditation, this meditative state can be very powerful in calming the mind and body and de-stressing for those with anxiety and depression. It causes the brain to release a flood of endorphins, also called feel good chemicals – which is good for lifting the mood and feel peaceful.
According Dr. Justin Feinstein, the world’s leading float therapy researcher, “the level of relaxation achieved in a float tank is similar to what would be achieved with anti-anxiety drugs or meditation.”
3. Magnesium: Treatment for anxiety & depression
Research has shown that magnesium plays a key role in the treatment of depression and anxiety and depression, as it becomes easily depleted during times of stress.
The float tanks contain over 500kgs of Epsom salt (magnesium sulphate). While floating the human skin absorbs the magnesium and can the cells would use it immediately.
magnesium is well known to help balance calcium levels in the body, reduce stress, balance hormones, normalize blood pressure, reduce risk of cancer and other diseases and much more.
