Who Utilizes Float Therapy?
The short answer is everyone.
However, different types of people utilize floating for different reasons.
These are just some of them…
Float Therapy Heals Your Mind, Body, and Soul
We live in a constant state of stimulation. Between our cellphones, tablets, and noise pollution, our minds and bodies are continually processing information, dealing with stressors, and experiencing pain. Float therapy benefits not only the mind and body, but also the soul. Experiencing complete silence and weightlessness gives us the chance to reset our thinking, improve our injuries, and inspire to create.
Float Therapy Improves Athletic Performance
There is a reason why top tier athletes such as Tom Brady, Steph Curry, and many others have expressed their love for floating. Athletes have found that float therapy can help improve their athletic performance, aid in preventing sports injuries, and even shorten recovery time when used in conjunction with their training program. The zero gravity environment inside a float tank allows every muscle to fully rest and recover while the mind is able to focus and visualize success with zero external distractions.
By relieving the stresses of gravity, floating takes the weight off strained bones, joints, and muscles and increases the efficiency of the blood circulating through the body, allowing the body to recover and heal in a shorter period of time.
Business People and Float Therapy
Many business professionals and entrepreneurs have reported experiencing extensive benefits as a result of the regular practice of floatation therapy including improved focus and concentration, enhanced problem-solving, and relief from physical and mental stress. The deep mental relaxation initiated by floating allows the brain to produce a greater amount of theta waves, which are accompanied by an increase in mental clarity, creativity, imagery, and memory. In addition, the release of the endorphins induces the feeling of elevated mood states which are effective in helping alleviate anxiety, depression, and negative mental habits.
Students and Float Therapy
The deep mental relaxation initiated by floating allows the brain to produce a greater amount of theta waves, which are accompanied by an increase in mental clarity, creativity, imagery, and memory. In addition, the release of the endorphins induces the feeling of elevated mood states which are effective in helping alleviate anxiety, depression, and negative mental habits, which are prevalent in students. Not to mention, what student couldn’t use 60-minutes WITHOUT a phone, tablet, computer, book or professor in their face?
Pregnancy and Float Therapy
Pregnancy is a wonderful time for expectant mothers, but it comes with a variety of pains and side effects. However, you don't have to suffer through these side effects for nine months. Float therapy during pregnancy can help ease pains due to weight gain, increase absorption of certain minerals, and can even assist with hormonal changes and mood swings.
Pain Relief Weight gain is normal during pregnancy, but it can cause a lot of pain and discomfort. Swollen ankles, sore feet, back and knee pain are often the result of pregnancy weight gain. During a float therapy session, the body becomes weightless, which gives the back, knees, and other pain ridden areas much need relief.
