Float tanks, also known as sensory deprivation tanks or isolation tanks, are a unique experience that can provide many benefits to your health and well-being. Floatation therapy is the process of floating in a saltwater solution that provides an environment free from distractions and outside influences. The float tank is filled with enough water so that all parts of your body float without touching the bottom or sides. This type of experience has been shown to help people relieve pain, reduce stress levels, decrease anxiety levels, and much more!
There are so many healing benefits of water and float tanks. Here are just a few:
Floating in a float tank can be a very effective way to reduce stress by providing an altered state of consciousness that allows your mind to rest and focus on the present moment. Float tank therapy reduces cortisol levels which are responsible for producing stress, while also increasing dopamine levels which are responsible for feelings of happiness.
Provide Muscle or Joint Pain Relief
Floating is great for relieving stress, but also muscular or joint pain. Float tanks are one of the best ways to relieve your aches and pains naturally because it allows you to relax muscles that may be tight due to injury or tension while elevating joints above heart level so they can heal themselves without any pressure on them.
The tank is a great place to get away from your everyday life and recharge. Float tanks can help you clear your head, focus on the present moment, and think about what matters most in life! They provide a state of calm, free from distraction.
Float tanks are great for improving circulation in your body. Floatation therapy helps re-circulate blood flow, which is especially beneficial if you have high blood pressure or other conditions that affect the health of your circulatory system.
Enhance Immune System
Floatation therapy has been shown to help regulate the functions of your body’s cells, tissues, and organs so you can maintain optimal performance throughout everyday life.
Reduce Blood Pressure
Floating in the tank naturally eases your body by slowing everything down, which is especially beneficial if you have high blood pressure because it provides support to your circulatory system and helps regulate heart rate so that it can perform optimally throughout everyday life. As we stated earlier, floatation therapy has also been shown to lower cortisol levels while increasing dopamine levels- perfect for reducing stress!
Provide Better Sleep
Floatation therapy allows the mind to enter a relaxed state, which aids in the production of melatonin- perfect for developing healthy sleeping habits! Float tank sessions have been shown to increase the total amount of time spent sleeping, reduce noises that may interrupt sleep, and decrease stress levels so that it’s easier to fall asleep at night.
Stimulate Deeper Mediation Float
Spending time in a float tank allows your mind to rest completely, which is perfect if you’re looking for some quiet time or want to focus on the present moment! Float tank sessions have been shown to increase awareness and help achieve desired states of consciousness- making it easier than ever to meditate.
