Float Away From Anxiety & Stress

Magnesium – The Great De-stresser

Did you know that the mineral magnesium helps to control the activity of the body’s stress-response system, and studies suggest that increasing magnesium intake may reduce anxiety, stress, and the fear response.

Magnesium is required in every cell of your body to function properly? And, if you experience headaches, cramps, stress and tension or restless leg syndrome on a regular basis, it’s likely that your body is not getting enough of this vital mineral.

You can increase your magnesium levels by taking supplements, but another great option is to pair it with a ‘float’.

What is Floating?

Floating is a luxurious way to escape the stress of everyday life. It is a rapidly growing holistic treatment that aids in stimulating the body’s own natural healing and regeneration abilities. People who are highly stressed, have chronic pain, adrenal fatigue, sleep disorders, asthma, or are in rehabilitation have used this therapy to improve their health and well-being.

Float tanks are general filled with around 650kgs of Epsom salt that has been saturated in 1200 liters of water and are shallow, only about 11 inches deep. This produces highly buoyant water, simulating the experience of floating in the Dead Sea; you float effortlessly on the surface of the water, feeling completely weightless!

Floating is a good alternative to taking oral magnesium supplements and is well tolerated by those who need high doses of magnesium due to deficiencies. The magnesium penetrates the skin effectively to replenish the body’s magnesium levels while also strengthening the immune and muscular systems, relieving pain, promoting quality sleep, and protecting cells from oxidative damage.

Plus floating is done in a low light or no light environment that is completely quiet. According to research, floating in a sensory deprivation environment may have some benefits in healthy people, such as muscle relaxation, better sleep, pain reduction, and reduced stress and anxiety.

Reduces Stress & Anxiety

Being in a low gravity, completely silent, and pitch black environment provides the mind with a brief respite from the outside world, allowing for instant inner peace. Flotation therapy is an effective, non-invasive method of treating pain and stress-related illness, such as fibromyalgia. Having high cortisol levels for an extended period of time can be detrimental to your health. Floating significantly reduces stress chemicals like cortisol, adrenaline, and blood pressure, putting you in a deep state of relaxation.

Improves Sleep Quality

Floatation therapy may help with insomnia symptoms. It restores and refreshes the senses, leaving you rested, relaxed, and ready to let go of your worries and finally enjoy a good night’s sleep. Even if you don’t normally have trouble sleeping, you’ll probably find that after a session you sleep much deeper and feel much more rejuvenated and restored the next day.

Deepen Meditation & Motivation

The absence of external stimuli inside a float tank enables you to clear your mind of clutter and stress. Another benefit is an increase in motivation. The revitalizing experience of a float session provides you with renewed energy to face the challenges of daily life. Floating sends your brain into a prolonged theta state in this distraction-free environment, achieving what monks normally meditate for years to achieve.

Increase Mental Clarity & Creativity

When we float, we eliminate many of the tasks performed by the left brain. The lack of sensory stimulation allows our right brain to thrive. This simple phenomenon explains why so many floaters report increased creativity while floating. According to studies, the right and left sides of the brain are more united during and after a float. This synchronization may be one of the most significant advantages of floatation therapy, explaining reports of “an increase in productivity, performance, efficiency, and generalized feelings of competence, confidence, and wholeness.”

Feel Good & Energized

Magnesium aids in the production of serotonin, a brain chemical that promotes feelings of calm and relaxation. According to research, magnesium boosts energy and stamina by encouraging the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy packets produced by cells.

Finding a sensory deprivation tank is simple these days, with float centers and spas offering float therapy all over the world.
