Stress Management and Addiction Control.
You are overwhelmed by stress. Perhaps there are unreasonable job demands, a death in the family, too many deadlines to meet. Or perhaps you have quit smoking recently or begun a weight-loss plan. You measure time by the hour, even the minute.
Imagine yourself floating effortlessly in a pool of warm water, enveloped by a dark calm. Your body relaxes completely as Epsom salt replenishes depleted minerals. Endorphins, the "feel good" hormone, are produced. Anxiety and depression loosen their grip and you feel at peace. Your brain, freed of everyday sensory input, falls into theta-wave patterns. You have insight into your recovery path, and can clearly visualize your goals.
Floating diminishes the production of the stress hormone cortisol. This lowers the pulse and blood pressure and allows muscles to relax. Floatation therapy is a powerful tool for overcoming addictions and trauma. Studies have found that the immediate effects of floating, stress reduction and deep relaxation, alleviate withdrawal symptoms and promote a sense of tranquility and well-being. Within the safe womb-like environment, it is possible to work through emotional crises and phobias in a calm, objective way.
