Benefits Of Floatation Therapy

How we learned to stop worrying and love the pod…

Pregnancy

Many pregnant woman have also reported a reduction of erratic movements of the baby inside the womb. This is due to a phenomenon called the “mirror effect”.The baby is safe and secure inside the womb and the mother shares a similar experience in the warm isolation tank. Woman report a stronger connection with their baby when exposed to this environment .

Athletic Training

Professional sportsmen have used floatation tanks since the 1980’s to enhance performance, aid in speed healing and recovery from physical activity and injury.Floating for athletic performance will result not only in the breakdown of the build-up of Lactic acid and for the muscles to start the recovery process much quicker, but to help facilitate exceptional muscle recovery. The effects can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days – it keeps them “on top of their game”.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes widespread pain and extreme tiredness. Symptoms of fibromyalgia vary from person to person, but the acknowledged main symptom is pain all over your body.whilst there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, there has been some spectacularly good outcomes from floatation, especially here at Time To Float, where we have seen an almost 100% improvement on NRS score on pain levels.

PTSD

PTSD is an anxiety disorder caused by very stressful frightening or distressing events. It is most commonly diagnosed to members of our armed forces, who have suffered some traumatic episode whilst serving for their country. In 2018, there was an increase of over 20% of reported cases of PTSD in the UK alone. 

Back Pain

You work long and hard. Everyday stresses manifest themselves as pain: back pain, neck pain and aching joints. Floating makes you appear weightless, as the sheer volume of salts in the water suspend your body on the surface. there is no pressure anywhere on your body, and your body finds its way to a naturally perfect spinal alignment.

Meditation/Creativity

The floatation tank environment causes a person’s brainwaves to change from a ‘beta’ state (wide awake and alert) to ‘alpha’ and finally to ‘theta’ state, which is associated with vivid imagery, even though you are awake.The float tank provides a reliable means to achieve and sustain this beneficial state without the years of practice that is normally required by advanced meditators to achieve ‘theta’ state at will (though this normally occurs in the 2nd half of an hour long float session.)

Headaches/Migraines

Migraines are thought to be caused by restricted blood flow due to dilated blood vessels. Float therapy increases blood flow, thereby alleviating a migraine attack or preventing one from starting. Mark (our director) will testify to the benefits of floating.

Arthiritis/Circulation

The Magnesium Sulfate in the Epsom salts get absorbed directly into the skin reducing inflammation around the joints – Magnesium is a ‘super food’ required by the human body, It’s great for reducing the amount of inflammation caused due to numerous health conditions including arthritis. 

Depression/stress

Stress build-up takes its toll on our bodies. When we first feel stressed the brain signals the release of Adrenaline and Cortisol – the ‘fight or flight mode’ reaction that is stress. In the short term, stress suppresses the immune system, increasing the risk of infections; slows down the metabolism & robs the body of vital nutrients. We become exhausted and depleted of vitamins and mineral whilst our energy plummets and our bodies ability to produce Adrenaline decreases, Floatation Therapy helps prevent all of these issues.

Jetlag/insomnia

Insomnia is a sleep disorder in which people have trouble sleeping. They may have difficulty falling asleep, or staying asleep as long as desired. It is typically followed by daytime sleepiness, low energy, irritability, and a depressed mood. Floatation therapy is quickly becoming a popular technique for minimizing the effects of both this and jet lag, as one hour float is equivalent to 1 hour’s sleep.
