The Many Benefits Of Floatation Therapy!

Boosts Endorphins

Our natural pain killer which are typically released from the pituitary gland of the brain during periods of strenuous exercise, emotional stress, and pain. Endorphins help relieve pain and induce feelings of pleasure or euphoria.

Boosts Dopamine

A chemical in your brain that affects your emotions, movements, and your sensations of pleasure and pain.  Dopamine is not only responsible for physical movement; it also affects how someone learns and behaves.  Dopamine has been implicated in everything from schizophrenia, to attention deficit disorders, to loss of cognitive reasoning in old age.

Boosts Serotonin

Contributes to feelings of overall well-being and happiness.  Serotonin is regarded by some researchers as a chemical that is responsible for maintaining mood balance, and that a deficit of serotonin leads to depression.

Lowers Adrenline

Adrenaline is produced during situations that are high-stress, dangerous, or physically exhilarating.  This release is an evolutionary adaptation that allows us to better cope with these situations.  Affects of adrenaline include increased heart rate, constricted blood vessels and dilated air passages.

Lowers Cortisol

A steroid hormone released in response to stress.  While cortisol can be a great benefit to the body, too much cortisol, which is caused by stress, can result in raising your blood sugar, the suppression of serotonin, anxiety, libido issues, or even the depletion of the adrenal gland

Lowers Blood Pressure

Results indicate that the flotation condition significantly reduced blood pressure and increased subjective relaxation…the patients systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly more than subjects who only did guided relaxation tapes…It is suggested that floating may be used to treat essential hypertension.

Even More Benefits?

Getting rid of all sensory input allows the ‘constantly-make-sure-you’re-not-dying’ part of your brain to chill out for a second, allowing the creative, relaxed part of your brain to come out and play. Without the constant pressure of analyzing the world around you, your body lowers its levels of cortisol, the main chemical component of stress.

Not having to fight gravity lets your muscles, joints, and bones take a well-deserved break. Your body suddenly has loads of extra resources (usually spent supporting your weight, regulating temperature, and trying not to get speeding tickets), which it gets to focus on things like healing and resting.

Without old-man gravity pushing you down all the time, chronic and acute pain is relieved, and your muscles get to fully rest. Unlike lying on a mattress, lying in water allows blood to flow freely all throughout your body. There’s no need to readjust your position to get comfortable. Research shows that about 40 minutes into your float your brain stops producing its normal Alpha and Beta waves and starts going deeper into a Theta and even Delta state.
