Floatation therapy can also help reverse the ageing process naturally and safely. While stress is associated with a wide-range of health-related issues, it also causes wrinkles. Cortisol (the stress hormone) breaks down skin collagen and it can become harder and harder for the skin to repair itself. At the same time, your body is responding to the stress through inflammatory pathways. Floating decreases your levels of cortisol and increase your levels of endorphins, which act as anti-inflammatories. Floating is beneficial as it reduces inflammation while enhancing endorphin production.
