Medical benefits of therapy using floatation
'Relaxing in a weightless state in the silent warmth of the tank activates the body's own system for recuperation and healing'
The use of flotation therapy has a number of medical benefits. In the gravity free floating environment the body balances and heals internally as all the senses are rested. Research shows that floating and flotation therapy measurably reduce blood pressure and heart rate whilst lowering the levels of stress related chemicals in the body. Old injuries and aches, (especially backache) experience relief as floating helps blood circulation. Recent medical flotation research has shown that floating improves the balance of activity between the two cerebral hemispheres of the brain to help provide a better state of physical, mental, and emotional health.
