The Benefits Of Float Tank NYC Therapy

Updated: Jan 10, 2020

The thought of being suspended in a bath full of Epsom salt or magnesium sulfate can be both exciting and frightening. It's dark, quiet, and the water temperature matches your body temperature so you feel like you're floating mid-air.

Floating in a Float Tank NYC is certainly calming, but this therapy offers more than simple relaxation.

Nearly everyone is deficient in the mineral known as magnesium sulfate. When you float in a float tank, your body absorbs these minerals and your body's magnesium and sulfate levels increase. This enhances your body's natural ability to heal, calming your nervous system in the process.

Floating helps to reduce stress by lowering cortisol levels due to the deep relaxation state you enter. Blood flow is stimulated and chemicals in the brain that reduce feelings of pain, called endorphins, are released.

Studies have shown that depression can even be fought with floatation therapy. The endorphins released during a float session last beyond the float tank itself.

There is an extreme amount of buoyancy that individuals experience when floating and it essentially feels like anti-gravity. This allows those with joint or muscle pain a much-needed relief that they cannot get otherwise.

Pregnant women can also benefit from floatation therapy in several ways. The pressure is relieved from the feet and back during floating and offers an escape from the additional weight and strain from carrying a baby.

Floating helps mothers-to-be to create a symbiotic sense of connection with their babies.

Some women see similarities between floating and the womb - deepening their connection to their unborn baby.

The combination of water temperature, increased blood flow, weightlessness, and released endorphins provide relief from migraines.

The increased blood flow experienced during a float session may alleviate migraine symptoms and possibly even prevent migraines from starting.

Floating can reduce recovery time between intense workouts, thus improving athletic performance. This helps the athletes train their bodies faster and condition them harder.

Floatation therapy is often recommended by trainers and used by serious athletes.

Float tank therapy has been shown to enhance performance in general. Studies by Arreed Barabasz of Washington State and Peter Suedfeld of the University of British Columbia show enhancement in human performance of scientific creativity, instrument flight performance, and even piano performance.
