Summer is almost over, and you don’t want to waste a minute. From 4th of July to back-to-school parties, there’s a lot to celebrate. It’s during these times that we tend to overeat and sometimes drink to excess. Floatation therapy can help you recover from the stresses you encounter from summer fun. Here’s how to restore your mind and body to a healthier, more balanced state.
How Floatation Therapy Helps Hangovers
You drank too much and you’re feeling it. Alcohol causes irritation of the stomach lining. It’s a diuretic, so when you wake up in the morning you’re probably dehydrated. Dehydration is what causes those hangover headaches. While it may make you fall asleep quickly, it often interferes with sleep patterns later in the night, so you’re likely tired. Here’s how floatation therapy helps.
- It’s silent. The sensory deprivation tanks at Northwest Float Center block all outside noise. The ringing phones and loud voices that make your head pound even more can’t get in, making it easier for you to relax.
- It helps your digestive system. When your stomach hurts and your digestive system is doing uncomfortable things, you clench all the muscles in your abdominal area. Float sessions help your muscles unclench. When you have a hangover, food or other smells can make you nauseous. Sensory deprivation tanks keep smells out.
- Floating reduces stress. When you have a hangover you feel like your nerves are raw. Input that wouldn’t normally bother you seems amplified to intolerable levels. Kids playing, television noises, and slow traffic that would normally be mild irritants make you feel jumpy and stressed. Floatation therapy allows you to get away from all of it. Reduce stress hormones in your body, so that you are better able to handle the rest of your day.
Floatation After Summer Travel
Some summer celebrations involve travel. Whether you drove a long way or flew to your destination, floatation therapy can improve the way you feel when you get back. Floaters say after their session in a floatation tank, they feel like they’ve had several hours of sleep. Reduce jet lag quickly with a float.
Combat Summer’s Effects on Skin and Hair
Summer sun exposure dries out your hair and skin. Overindulging isn’t good for it either. Floatation tanks contain high levels of Epsom salts, which make your skin and hair feel softer and healthier.
