Do you toss and turn for hours before falling asleep? Or go to bed early but still wake up tired? Or keep waking up during the night? Then you’re among the more than 20% of people in the U.S. who suffer from a sleeping disorder like insomnia.
The good news is that Floating is an excellent tool for remedying your rest issues. For many sufferers of insomnia, floatation therapy has proven to be very effective. You can decrease your cortisol (stress hormone) levels, pump endorphins through your system, and better regulate your blood pressure and heart rate.
In fact, many floaters actually fall asleep during their float sessions and experience levels of extreme relaxation. Some doctors suggest 1 hour of sleep in a float tank is equivalent to 8 hours of deep sleep. The environment you find yourself in during a float session is ideal for extreme rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Usually with insomnia, it’s difficult to relax your muscles at night. Once you get lay in the Float room, all of the effects of gravity on the body are reduced and your muscles reach deep levels of relaxation. This is particularly useful for those suffering from back and neck pain.
Floatation Therapy also helps people mentally de-stress. With the removal of all sight and sound stimulation your mind is able to relax and turn its focus inward, allowing you to develop a tranquil perspective on whatever thoughts might be causing stress. This makes it easier for the brain to downshift from alpha waves into theta waves, which are the gateway to sleep.
This deep level of relaxation enjoyed by your body and mind is thanks to the magnesium absorbed into your skin through the water.
Even if you don’t fall completely asleep during your floating session, you’re sure to emerge far more rested and relaxed than before.
