Dear Stress,

I am breaking up with you!

Stress Relief & Floatation Therapy (Sensory Deprivation) 

This alone could be a packet of information unto itself. Stress is rampant throughout our culture, and the havoc this can have on the human body is well documented. Our fight or flight system basically gives priority to a select number of our bodies faculties at the expense of most of our basic regulatory functions. This is an effective means of surviving a tricky situation, but it’s not how our bodies are meant to be constantly running.

A plethora of ailments arise from our bodies not being able to return to their comfortable homeostasis. Severe enough stress can even completely stunt growth in the human body. Float tanks are possibly the most relaxing environment we can put our bodies into. Stress relief comes almost instantly from floating, and simply gets stronger and lasts longer the more you float. 

Consistent floating can help alleviate all of the following:

  1. Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  2. Apoplexy or stroke (related to hypertension)
  3. Coronary heart disease – The highest leading cause of death in the United States (about 1 out of 6 deaths, as reported by the CDC)
  4. Ulcers
  5. Migraine or tension headaches
  6. Asthma
  7. Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
  8. Depression
  9. Burn out syndrome
  10. Fertility issues
  11. Temporomandibular (TMJ) Syndrome
  12. Trichotillomania
  13. …and more

Research is showing more and more ailments to be closely related to stress.
