After experiencing a float session, it’s likely that you’ll be looking forward to more. Scheduling the occasional visit is good, but did you know that there are many benefits that come from regular time spent in the tanks? A weekly trip to Northwest Float center can improve your life more than you might think.
The Mental Advantages
As with almost anything, consistency is key. Floating is essentially a form of meditation, and meditation is a type of mental exercise. The more often that you practice, the easier it is to relax your mind. This is true for your time spent hovering on the surface of our water too. You’ll be able to tune into the sense of peace that comes from a lack of stimulation quicker with each session.
Frequent visits also can help regulate your stress. Single visits are powerful, and it’s likely that you’ll perceive some changes for several days after you float before your levels of strain rise again. When you use our facility more often, you can cut down on and potentially eliminate the fluctuations in between sessions. The more consistently you participate, the calmer you’ll be overall.
Taking time to unwind and clear your brain of worries and tension is powerful for more than just daily stress. Mental afflictions such as depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, and anxiety wear down your brain and body. Floating can help alleviate symptoms of such ailments and serve as a gentle therapy to those who are affected.
The Physical Benefits
There are physical benefits too, aside from the impressive relaxation and mental clarity you can experience. When you spend time in a float tank, the magnesium in the water will make changes in your body, easing inflammation and the pains that accompany it. Athletes find the therapy beneficial for sore muscles after a vigorous workout.
Routine therapy can manage even tougher chronic pains. Sulfates in the water can draw out toxins and heavy metals that could be responsible for your discomfort. That’s in addition to the feeling of weightlessness, which takes away all the strain on your back and limbs while you’re enjoying your float. The same magnesium can also aid in the production of adenosine triphosphate—a molecule that your cells use to create energy.
A host of other rewards come with frequent floating. For example, users find softer skin after just one use, and repeated exposure can keep it smooth and luminous. Don’t let all these wonderful advantages get away from you. Call today to schedule your next appointment.
