Relaxation is the most important key to health and well-being. Floating weightlessly in the pod, with no light or sound, is one of the most effective ways to bring about the body’s natural relaxation response and enter a state of deep relaxation. Your brain responds by removing harmful chemicals and releasing endorphins, powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being.
Floating is a proven and highly efficient stress-buster. The harmful effects of stress are well-recognized by the medical community. Stress can raise blood pressure, increase cortisol levels, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, contribute to infertility, speed up the aging process and leave you more vulnerable to anxiety and depression. After just one session, floaters have reported the amazing healing powers of floatation therapy. Floating is empirically proven to increase the parasympathetic nervous system response (endorphins), and decrease the sympathetic nervous system response (cortisol, epinephrine).
