Floatation helps with improvement in general well-being. It promotes total calm and peaceful relaxation, eliminates fatigue and jet lag, improves sleep and alleviates mental and physical stress. It also energises, rejuvenates and revitalises, increases motivation, diminishes depression, anxiety and fear and facilitates freedom from habits, phobias and addictions.
The mental benefits include left/right brain synchronisation. It shifts brain waves from beta to lower frequency alpha, theta and even delta and creates mental clarity and alertness. Clients can also experience an increase in creativity and problem solving, heightened visualisation, a deeper meditative state, intensified awareness of all the senses, accelerated learning and enhanced hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis.
Physical benefits include a decrease in the production of cortisol, ACTH, lactic acid/adrenaline and an increase in the production of endorphins. Floatation speeds up rehabilitation and recovery, relieves pain for conditions such as fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, injuries and so on. It boosts immune function, improves circulation and distribution of oxygen and nutrients. It reduces blood pressure, pulse, heart rate and oxygen consumption, improves athletic performance, helps prevent sports injuries and speeds the healing process.
