Pain and Stress Relief
Clinical research has shown that profound relaxation in a float chamber triggers the production of endorphins. Endorphins interact with the opiate receptors in your brain to reduce the perception of pain and also ignite wellbeing.
Not having to fight gravity lets your muscles, joints, and bones take a well-deserved break. Your body suddenly has loads of extra resources (usually spent supporting your weight, regulating temperature, and trying not to get speeding tickets), which it gets to focus on things like healing and resting.
Without old-man gravity pulling you down all the time, your spine lengthens an inch, chronic pain is relieved, and your muscles get to fully rest. Unlike lying on a mattress, lying in water allows blood to flow freely all throughout your body. There’s no need to readjust your position to get comfortable.
Stress and Anxiety
Stress produces a chain reaction in the body releasing stress chemicals adrenaline, cortisol, ACTH, and lactate which are known to weaken the body's immune system and create feelings of depression.
While floating, the chemistry of the body changes. Stress hormones are removed from the bloodstream and replaced with beneficial endorphins. The "Pleasure" chemicals released create feelings of confidence and well-being. These changes occur naturally and spontaneously as by-products of deep sensory relaxation. No training or techniques are required. Just lie back and let it happen.
