PTSD

The last decade has been a tough one on our men and women in uniform. Lasting psychological effects of traumatic experiences in combat zones turn what used to be normal daily life into a painful daily struggle. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) is a life altering mental condition triggered by a traumatic event or series of traumatic events in someone’s life. Although scientific studies on the effects floatation therapy has on PTSD are minimal, early research shows there is a correlation between regular floating and a reduction in the symptoms of PTSD and anxiety.

Regular floatation therapy has been proven to reduce symptoms and result in the following:

  • Increased sense of well being, calm, focus, energy, and optimism
  • Improved sleep quality
  • Mental clarity and improved visualization
  • Significant reduction in stress and anxiety
  • Decrease in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Decrease in cortisol and other stress hormones

We strongly encourage anyone struggling with these symptoms to embrace floating as a non-medicated supplement to current therapies.

You deserve to heal.

Here is a link to an extremely informative speech about anxiety.

Expecting Mothers

Pregnancy can cause an incredible amount of stress and pressure on your back and joints throughout the body. The weightless environment that floating provides relieves this pressure and decreases inflammation caused by poor blood circulation.

Among other benefits for expecting mothers, floating provides:

  • Muscle and joint pain relief
  • Reduction in stress and anxiety
  • Increased blood circulation
  • Spiritual connection with the child
  • Improved sleep quality

A parallel is often made between floatation therapy and that of a fetus floating in the womb resulting in a profound bond between mother and child. The feeling of returning to this natural state results in the deepest relaxation you will experience. The zero-gravity effect provides the comfort and relaxation that both you and your child deserve. Consulting with your doctor prior to floating is required for your safety and your child’s safety.

   

Executives

Busy schedules, stress, physical activity, and overwhelming external stimulation propagated by technology and media takes a toll on your body. Business people are always looking ahead, towards the next meeting, the next goal, or the next best invention. As a result, the mind never gets a break, sleep is interrupted, and productivity and creativity begins to stall.

Floating:

  • Enhances creativity and problem solving
  • Provides clarity of the mind and sharpens visualization
  • Reduces stress and anxiety
  • Improves sleep quality
  • Reduces cortisol and other stress related hormones

Through regular floatation, you will experience the absence of the “noise pollution” plaguing us everyday, thereby allowing the mind and body to rest, relax, and recover.
