Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, but when the feeling persists, it can be harmful to your physical and mental health. Fortunately, there is a way to manage stress and anxiety—flotation therapy. Flotation therapy is a form of relaxation that improves your mental clarity and can help you live a healthier life. Let’s take a look at how flotation therapy works and how it can benefit you.
Flotation therapy involves floating in a dark, soundproof tank filled with 10 inches of body-temperature saltwater. The salt makes the water buoyant so that once inside the tank, your body will effortlessly float on top of the water. This stress-free environment helps you relax while providing sensory deprivation from all external stimuli such as light, sound, smell, and touch.
Floating in a tank allows you to focus solely on yourself without outside distractions. This allows you to let go of any anxious or stressful thoughts while in the tank, giving your mind much-needed rest. Furthermore, since flotation therapy uses Epsom salts which contain magnesium sulfate (a natural muscle relaxant), it can reduce inflammation and ease muscle tension throughout your body. This can lead to improved sleep quality as well as reduced fatigue during the day.
Flotation tanks also provide positive psychological benefits such as decreased anxiety levels and improved mental clarity and focus due to being away from all external stimuli for an extended period. Additionally, they provide users with an opportunity to be mindful by focusing on their breathing patterns without distractions or unpleasant thoughts getting in the way. Lastly, flotation tanks can also create feelings of euphoria due to the increased production of endorphins released during relaxation periods within the tanks themselves!
