Do you even float?!

Do you often come into a massage and say to your therapist that you’re stressed? You can feel the tension in your muscles build as you start to feel this way and you may even get some uncomfortable aches and pains. You’ve taken that step and had a massage to ease the tension, the weight has been lifted off your shoulders and you walk out feeling lighter and feeling tall. It might be a month later the same physical feeling comes back, headaches, foggy head. Are you taking the right approach?

In some cases your physical aches and pains can be triggered by your emotional stresses in life. Which is where Float Tanks can come into the picture. Some great benefits can come from both massage and Floating. When combined they can be even better. There has been a lot of hype around recently and research into exactly how effective they can be.

“Stress, depression, anxiety, and worst pain were significantly decreased whereas optimism and sleep quality significantly increased for the flotation-REST group.”

For people who have been recommended meditation and find it difficult to practice, sensory deprivation can help you be in an environment where there is no external stimulus and you have the time just to yourself. In the tank you can reach mental stillness, which is a sort after state often found through meditation. This practice can boost your creativity, increase mental clarity and obtain effective physical and emotional stress relief.

First time floaters find that it takes longer to ease into the new environment, which is why some initial floats are 90 minutes. This may seem like a long time but as you become accustomed to the process you can fall into the parasympathetic state with more ease each time.

Another amazing thing that happens with massage and floating is that they both activate your parasympathetic nervous system and you relax. One sign during a massage is that you might hear your stomach gurgling during the treatment or falling asleep too. Dopamine and Endorphins are released into the body, which help with improving your mood and your pain levels naturally.

Floating can help to improve your muscle tone and absorb minerals too. Many times you have heard your therapist tell you to have an Epsom salt bath post treatment- well the float tanks are filled with a lot of it. It aids in your buoyancy while floating to feel that sense of weightlessness. At the same time you absorb some through your largest organ- your skin.

“I love floating. The weightlessness and serenity of the tank allows my otherwise over stimulated mind to relax into a deep meditative state naturally. You can have very lucid and creative thoughts in there but mostly I enjoy walking out feeling calm, refreshed and energized.”

Dušan, NMK Therapist
