Conditions helped by Floatation
Below are just a few examples of conditions, which scientific research has shown to be improved through the use of floatation sessions:
Chronic Headaches and Migraines
Chronic Lower Back Pain
Stress-related disorders such as anxiety and PTSD
Floating takes the pressure of gravity off joints and muscles and your body is put in to a high state of physical relaxation. Blood pressure and oxygen intake reduce but at the same time blood flow and the distribution of red blood cells increases.
This speeds recovery from injury and helps flush any lactate, cortisone and adrenaline that may have built up through training or performance.
Floating has been shown to loosen the muscles and give more control over your nervous system. This reduces the risk of injury during training or competition. Floating not only accelerates the recovery process, but releases vast quantities of endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller.
Modern training methods focus on helping the athlete to master the ‘inner game’ to develop the perfect synchronicity between mind, body and emotion, which is the hallmark of a champion. In the tank the athlete can reach the level of concentration necessary for visualisation to have a quantifiable impact on his or her performance.
Physical exercise can cause a build of lactic acid, which is often experienced as pain and a cramping of the muscles. It has also been linked with feelings of depression known as ‘post-game let down’ which can also affect part-time joggers. Floating resets the body’s chemical and metabolic balance, reducing the risk of over training.
