Floatation therapy and floatation tanks, also known as sensory deprivation tanks are a relaxing and calming treatment designed to help the mind and the body in several ways. Keep reading to find out more!
What Is Floatation Therapy?
Floatation therapy involves a tank that is filled with Epsom salts and water that is heated to the temperature of your skin. The high concentration of salt in the water will make you nice and buoyant, helping to keep you afloat in the tank. The tanks are large enough for you to reach out, sit up and float with ease.
As their name suggests, sensory deprivation tanks will help you tune out most of your senses as you float in the peaceful darkness, encouraging you to go into a serene, meditative state.
How Can It Benefit Me?
These are just a few of the benefits that you can experience from undergoing floatation therapy:
Many people reported significant pain relief when they went for floatation therapy. When in the tank, your increased blood flow will target the painful areas, helping to soothe aches and pains while contributing to the healing process.
A lot of research suggests that just one session in a floatation tank can help with the release of endorphins in your body, while simultaneously reducing your cortisol levels. Regular float sessions can be beneficial in training your brain to secrete these endorphins more regularly, helping you to feel more positive in general!
Floatation tanks can be helpful when it comes to blood flow and circulatory systems too. The tank helps to normalise your blood pressure, decreasing your cortisol levels and reducing the pressure in your arteries too. Overall, the tank will promote healthy blood flow.
Floatation tanks are said to have a great effect on reducing symptoms of depression, anxiety and stress. Due to the meditative state and release of endorphins, a floatation tank can be a good way to help your mental health! The deprivation of senses can allow you to get in touch with your mind and start feeling more at peace.
Floatation tanks are beneficial for your skin too. The Epsom salt in the water will help to naturally remove dead cells and exfoliate your skin, leaving your pores nice and clean. Also, the water in the tank can help reduce skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis or eczema.
