While Floating, a very interesting thing happens when your body is weightless and your mind is protected from external stimulation:
Your body starts to overcome stress and the hormones associated with stress
Your adrenal system starts to shut down - or more simply, your fight-or-flight response (deeply rooted in your brain) is not needed because you are so deeply relaxed, protected and at ease
Stress is the number one cause for illness – all disease sprouts in one way or another from stress
You can literally reduce stress without learning any complicated techniques by using Floatation Therapy - get in, float, and your body knows how to do the rest!
How It Works
Stress is a state of mental or emotional tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances. Sometimes we need stress to make a decision and reach out goals. Unfortunately, when stress overloads an individual, it becomes a detrimental system to the mind and body. High levels of stress over a lifetime provide a high risk for degenerative illnesses, rapid aging, and an overall decreased sense of happiness and fulfillment. Here's how floating can help overcome stress in one of the most natural ways:
- Removes External Stimuli - Turn off external stimuli, resting your nervous system.
- Epsom Salts - Relax your muscles and joints with magnesium and sulfur, two super-minerals that allow your body to begin to rapidly heal and repair itself.
- Gravity Reduction - Float free from gravity and experience the sensation of weightlessness. Feel less physical strains and notice sustained levels of reduction in pain.
Theta Waves - Feel your brain release tension and reach the same state of mind that can be found during REM sleep, giving your body a moment of ultimate rest and recovery.
Reduces Stress Hormones - Lower your level of cortisol, the "stress hormone", while increasing your level of feel-good hormones, like endorphins!
Though both stress and pain seem so easy to overcome when looking at it from the outside, the work of actually doing it takes more than a pep talk. Floating is that extra boost, giving you a winning chance to take control of your body, your mind and shape your experience.
