What effects does floating have on your body?

Floating is a method of attaining the deepest relaxation one can experience. In the gravity free environment the body balances and heals internally as all the senses are rested. Research shows that floating measurably reduces 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.

Floating is used widely in the treatment of stress, anxiety, jet lag and to improve concentration and creativity. Sports performance and ‘wind down’ is also enhanced during floating. Also, one hour of floating has the restorative effects of 4 hours of sleep!

Located at the County Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Marsh Barton, Exeter, floatation therapy uniquely fits into the clinic’s ethos of achieving and maintaining optimal health.

The tranquil, soothing environment of the floatation room creates the perfect synergy where relaxation, health and wellbeing come together as one.

About LiveLife Float

What effects does floating have on your mind?

During a float, you produce slower brain-waves patterns, known as theta waves, (normally experienced only during deep meditation or just before falling asleep and when waking up). This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy, induced by the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates.

Because of these effects, floating is used effectively in the treatment of depression and addictions, including smoking and alcohol. It is also used in schools and universities as tools for Super Learning.

Is floating successful for everyone?

Floating, as with other treatments, doesn’t suit everybody. It needs willingness on your part to let go and see what happens, and you may need to float a few times before you are able to relax completely, both physically and mentally. Depending on your own journey through life, a float might provide an hour of total physical relaxation – or a profound healing experience, emotionally and spiritually transforming. Floating can be a wonderful aid to opening doors into your inner world, gradually allowing access to those deeper levels at which real changes take place.

Also remember that the benefits of floating are accumulative – the more you float the better it gets and each float is never the same as the next.
