Benefits of Float Tank Therapy
- Getting rid of all sensory input allows the part of your brain to relax 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. Your brain also releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, the neurotransmitters of happiness.
- Not having to fight gravity lets your muscles, joints, and bones take a well-deserved break. Your body suddenly has loads of extra resources, which it gets to focus on things like relaxing, healing and resting.
- Without gravity pushing you down all the time, your spine lengthens an inch, chronic pain is relieved, and your muscles get to fully rest. Lying in water allows blood to flow freely all throughout your body. There’s no need to readjust your position to get comfortable in the float pod.
- About 40 minutes into your float your brain stops producing its normal Alpha waves and starts churning out Theta waves.
- These are responsible for that and you make them naturally every night before you go to sleep.
- Even the magnesium-based Epsom salts we use in the float tank are good for you. They soften and replenish your skin, and help counteract the magnesium deficiency that most of us have due to depleted magnesium levels in our soil.
