According to New Zealand Ministry of Health, stress is one of the major causes of illness and general malaise in New Zealand. Many health problems are caused or exacerbated by stress, including heart disease, back and neck pain, low immune systems and obesity.
Floatation is ideal for reducing stress in those who have already succumbed to chronic stress, as well as a preventative measure for those whose levels are increasing.
Effects of floatation therapy on reducing stress are well documented in scientific research, positioning floatation tanks as one of the most effective tools known to psychology to fight stress.
Blood tests indicate that floating reduces the levels of stress and stress related neurochemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and ACTH – it’s the high levels of these chemicals in the bloodstream that leave you feeling “stressed out” and vulnerable to heart disease and a weakened immune system.
Floating regularly over time trains your mind to change reaction to perceived stress. You will notice that certain things don’t make you as stressed as they used to. It helps you to be more aware of when you are stressed and enables you to take action to relax.
