Benefits of Floating therapy
Floating therapy is relaxing but the therapy does more than just give you a calming effect.
Magnesium sulfate, which is a mineral that most people are deficient in, is added to the water. When you participate in floating therapy, the body absorbs these minerals and your body’s sulfate and magnesium levels increase. This will help to calm your nervous system and enhance the body’s natural ability to heal.
The deep relaxation state you enter while in floating therapy helps to reduce your stress and lower your cortisol levels. Blood flow is stimulated and your brain releases endorphins to reduce any feelings of pain and help trigger positive feelings. Studies have also shown that floating therapy can help with depression since the endorphins released last beyond your therapy session. The combination of the water temperature, increased blood flow, and weightlessness can help with migraines as well. Floating can also improve athletic performance by reducing the recovery time that is needed between intense workouts.
