Floatation therapy is said to be the antidote to stress. It provides a deep state of relaxation. Many users claim to have enhanced senses after floating. In this heightened state you may notice colors, sounds and smells that you otherwise may have missed. Quantifying these types of benefits can be difficult to prove but researchers are beginning to show how it works. A Swedish study published in the Journal of Complimentary & Behavioral Medicine in 2014, suggested that inducing a deep state of relaxation reduces the body’s stress response which is a contributing factor to many illnesses.
The deep state of relaxation produced during floating can help rebalance the brain’s neurotransmitters. During flotation our brains release a flood of endorphins. Endorphins are natural pain fighters. Opioids made especially for your body which are good for lifting your mood. These feel good hormones leave you upbeat and optimistic.
Nearly one in 5 adults in the U.S. suffer from a type of anxiety order, including general anxiety disorder (GAD). It’s not only widespread, but it’s one of the most difficult health conditions to treat. Floatation therapy may be able to help, as just recently, researchers from Sweden’s Karlstad University tested its effects on anxiety disorder symptoms. They found that symptoms had significantly changed for the better following 12 sessions of the therapy over a four month period. Over one third who were treated were actually reported to be in full remission of their symptoms, and the majority of the other participants experienced at least some beneficial effects related to regulating emotion, depression and/or sleep problems. At the six-month follow-up point, all were still experiencing improved outcomes.
