Take time to relax.
Most people live a very hectic life. We run from errand to errand, in between jobs, and spend whatever time is left with our families. We never take a moment to ourselves, and our bodies notice this. Without downtime to let our body’s process and recover from events, our system begins to accumulate stress and operate at less than optimal levels.
If left untreated this effect accumulates and becomes worse. Eventually the brain will begin to send out the same “fight or flight” signals that warned our ancestors of danger. While in the short term this process can produce adrenaline and be useful for survival (or short term productivity), it’s devastating to our state of mind. It also wreaks havoc on our immune system and general health when prolonged over weeks, months, and years.
Fear not though, as floating can be your cure for your stress. Floating activates the healing that comes with complete relaxation in a fast and efficient manner. As many of our clients have said, floating can be “the most relaxing thing you’ll ever experience!”
Why is relaxation important?
Chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death: heart disease, cancer, lung ailments, accidents, cirrhosis of the liver, and suicide. More than 75% of visits to the doctor are for stress related ailments and complaints. Finding time to relax is literally a matter of life and death.
How does floating help?
One of the simplest ways that Floating helps is by removing all forms of stimuli. It provides an escape from the world. There are no deadlines, schedule conflicts, or matters that require your attention.
Floating also reduces blood pressure and cortisol (the stress hormone). This directly helps the body fight off various kinds of stress related chronic illnesses. The effects of floating go beyond the short term too. There are many long lasting benefits to floating in Sensory Deprivation tanks filled with an Epsom salt solution. Many patients report that they notice reduced stress levels, pain relief, and increased creativity for days after floating. Making time to float regularly produces greater dividends and promotes long term health.
