Benefits of Float Therapy

A quick overview of float therapy 

Float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation therapy or restricted environmental stimulation therapy, is a unique wellness experience. It involves floating in an isolation tank filled with Epsom salt water (magnesium sulphate) at body temperature. Sensory deprivation fosters a deeply relaxed state, free from the distractions of everyday life, allowing the mind to drift into a peaceful, meditative state.

Why use sensory deprivation tank therapy?

Reduce stress

The float tank’s skin-temperature water, saturated with Epsom salts, minimises distractions and allows the body to enter a state of profound rest. Float tank therapy triggers the release of stress-reducing hormones, enhancing the relaxation response and boosting the immune system. Sensory deprivation tanks may also benefit individuals with high anxiety sensitivity.

Improve cardiovascular health

Float tanks offer a unique approach to heart health. By inducing deep relaxation, they help combat chronic stress, a significant contributor to high blood pressure. It also encourages vasodilation (widening of blood vessels), which improves blood flow throughout the body.

Pain management

Floating in the Epsom salt solution allows your body to experience a state of near weightlessness, similar to zero gravity. This, combined with increased magnesium absorption through the skin, allows the body to fully relax. This decreased muscle tension is highly effective in relieving chronic pain, including neck pain and joint pain.

Better sleep quality

Floating sessions can be particularly beneficial for those with insomnia, disrupted sleep patterns, or an anxiety disorder. Float tanks promote a calm and focused mind, helping you fall asleep faster and experience deeper, more restful sleep.

Enhance athletic performance and muscle recovery 

Float tanks are an athlete's secret weapon. They reduce muscle tension, promote healing, and boost magnesium absorption for optimal recovery. Plus, the sensory deprivation environment minimises stress hormones, lowering injury risk. The result? Less muscle soreness, increased flexibility, and ultimately, peak athletic performance.

Improve focus and concentration

A float tank eliminates distractions, promoting a deep state of relaxation and sharpening focus. This can enhance cognitive abilities, boosting problem-solving skills and overall mental acuity.

Break habits and addictions 

Sensory deprivation tank sessions can be a valuable tool to aid those seeking to break habits or overcome addictions. The float tank experience fosters introspection, allowing individuals to gain a new perspective on their behaviours and thought patterns. Additionally, by reducing stress and improving mental clarity, individuals can better cope with the challenges of addiction recovery.

Boost creativity 

Quieting the mind allows individuals to access new ideas and insights while the reduced external stimuli foster imagination and open-mindedness.

Deepen meditation

Sensory deprivation tanks create a perfect environment for inner exploration by eliminating distractions and promoting relaxation. This can lead to reduced stress, improved sleep, and a heightened sense of overall well-being. For some, floating can even unlock a deeper spiritual connection.

Skin condition management 

The water's high salt concentration helps to soothe irritated skin, reduce inflammation, and promote healing. Sensory deprivation tank therapy may also benefit individuals with psoriasis, eczema, or acne.

Reduce jet lag 

The deep relaxation and restorative sleep experienced during a float session can help reset the body's internal clock. This can alleviate common jet lag symptoms like fatigue, insomnia, and trouble focusing.
