HealthFloatation offers preventative benefits and treatment for mental and physical health
Floatation offers a host of health benefits to your whole organism, including both the mental and physical aspects.
Floating weightless in the quiet darkness reduces blood pressure and heart rate. The body is supported uniformly, without any pressure bearing. Circulation improves, carrying vital materials throughout the body, accelerating the healing process. You are bathed in salts of the essential mineral Magnesium.
The floatation environment is free of external stimuli and physical demands on the body. This means that resources which are usually expended on constant background activities such as staying upright or assessing risks, are freed up to be used for healing and recuperation instead. The body experiences a powerfully restorative state of rest when unencumbered by the need to resist gravity or monitor its surroundings.
Floating empowers the body to heal itself by stimulating the parasympathetic response.
Floating especially helps with problems involving the autonomic nervous system, such as insomnia, stress symptoms, dysfunctions of the skeleto-muscular system, and chronic headaches.
Levels of the ‘stress hormone’ cortisol are reduced. Cortisol is useful, but many people have a perpetually elevated level which is associated with greater risk of depression, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and infectious diseases. It can exacerbate rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and multiple sclerosis.
A regular floating practice is not only very pleasant, relaxing and fun, but by reducing cortisol levels helps improve your physical and mental health. With our fast-paced lifestyles packed with demands upon our attention, prevention of stress-related disease is vital.
Floatation is the ultimate in relaxation, providing a reliable gateway to peace and calm, and a powerful antidote to stress.
Your muscles, joints and bones are released from the effects of gravity. Muscle tension is reduced. Rehabilitation from injury is accelerated and pain is reduced.
By reducing recovery time, floating can help improve your performance in sport, and enable you to enjoy your exercise and train more effectively.
Floating offers relief from the chronic pain of conditions such as fibromyalgia, back pain, arthritis, and migraine.
Floating can reduce anxiety, help with PTSD, and offers an opportunity to address destructive thought patterns and habits.
Floating can bring better sleep, leading to better rest, faster recovery and improved health.
This is a place you can truly rest, a time which is yours alone. You emerge feeling energised, rejuvenated, and revitalised.
