Benefits of Floatation Therapy

In the near zero-gravity environment of the float tank, pressure is taken off of your muscles, bones and joints. This vastly improves your circulation and allows your body to rejuvenate and heal itself. Research shows that floating measurably reduces your blood pressure and heart rate while at the same time lowering cortisol, your main stress hormone.

Floating has some powerful effects on the brain too. The reduced external stimuli allows your brain waves to slow until they reach the theta state. This is the state that your brain is in just before falling asleep and during deep meditation, and is usually combined with vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of happiness. This is all thanks to the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates.

Whether you're using floatation therapy as a tool for stress relief & relaxation, rest & recovery or meditation, there are a wide-range of benefits that are hard to find anywhere else. And when you can do it on a regular basis and build a practice out of it, your normal state of being can become one of productivity, creativity, ease and presence.
