Floating Therapy Reduces Stress


IN THIS MORNING’S HEALTHIER ME: A NEW TREND CALLED “FLOAT THERAPY” COULD HELP REDUCE STRESS. KELSEY KENNEDY SHOWS US WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT. “IN TODAY’S SOCIETY IT’S REALLY RARE THAT WE TAKE THAT HOUR FOR OURSELVES AND JUST RELAX.” BORN IN THE 60’S AND POPULAR BY THE 80’S.. FLOATING IS MAKING A COME BACK.. “THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF THE EXPERIENCE THE ENTIRE TIME.” IN 11-HUNDRED POUNDS OF SALT IN 200 GALLONS OF WATER.. “EVERYBODY FLOATS EFFORTLESSLY. IT’S A REALLY UNIQUE EXPERIENCE TO HAVE THAT ZERO GRAVITY LIKE FEELING.” YOU CAN ESCAPE FROM YOUR SENSES.. “AFTER THOSE TEN MINUTES WE SUGGEST TURNING THE LIGHT OFF AND BEING AS STILL AS YOU CAN. IF YOUR MIND IS RACING JUST FOCUS ON YOUR BREATH. YOU’LL HEAR YOUR BREATH YOU’LL HEAR YOUR HEARTBEAT.” SINK INTO WATER THAT MATCHES YOUR SKIN TEMPERATURE.. ELIMINATING THE SENSE OF TOUCH.. AND GRAVITY FADES AWAY “EVERYTHING BEGINS TO MELT TOGETHER. YOU SOMETIMES HAVE TO CHECK AND SEE IF YOUR STILL IN THE TANK, IF YOU’RE STILL THERE OR NOT. YOU ALMOST BECOME PURE THOUGHT.” A THETA BRAIN STATE.. ALMOST DREAM LIKE SETS IN.. “WHEN YOU CUT OUT ALL THE STIMULUS OF THE WORLD, THE ONLY THING THAT YOU’RE GOING TO EXPERIENCE IN THE POD COMES FROM WITHIN YOU.” “ANSWERS TO PROBLEMS THAT I’VE BEEN HAVING LATELY, BY GOING INTO A MEDITATIVE STATE, YOU REACH THAT OTHER REALM WHERE YOU’RE ABLE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS EASIER.” “SOME PEOPLE CAN SEE MEMORIES, SOME PEOPLE SEE FACES, SOME PEOPLE SEE SHAPES AND COLORS. ITS UNIQUE TO THE PERSON HAVING THE EXPERIENCE.” FLOATING IS PROVEN TO DROP STRESS HORMONE LEVELS.. AND CLARITY OF MIND.. CONTRIBUTES TO OVERALL WELL BEING.. “IT CAN HELP WITH CHRONIC PAIN, IT CAN HELP WITH INSOMNIA, REALLY THAT MEDITATIVE STATE THAT IT TAKES YOU TO ALLOW YOU TO WORK ON WHATEVER YOU WANT TO WORK ON.” “I FELT LIKE I HAD SURFED FOR ABOUT 12 HOURS, HAD A MASSAGE SESSION AND MEDITATED ALL IN A ONE HOUR PERIOD.” AN HOUR TO TUNE OUT RINGING CELL PHONES.. CRYING CHILDREN.. AND THE STRESS OF THE DAY.. “IT’S THE MOST RELAXED I’VE BEEN IN QUITE SOME TIME.” “FLOATING” HAS PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS ESPECIALLY FOR ATHLETES BECAUSE SALT IS GOOD FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY.. “FLOATING” HAS PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS ESPECIALLY FOR ATHLETES BECAUSE SALT IS GOOD FOR MUSCLE RECOVERY..
