Now the world is waking up to another much safer and more tranquil treatment that has celebrities swearing by its effectiveness: Float Therapy.
The Origins Of Float Therapy
The concept of float therapy first came into realisation in 1954, thanks to Dr. John C. Lily, a neuropsychiatrist. His initial curiosity about how an isolation tank would affect the human mind caught interest, and by 1972, one of the doctor’s patients decided to take it a step further by introducing the concept on a commercial level. Fast forward nearly five decades, and float therapy has seen a huge surge in popularity and recognition for its transformative powers on the human mind and body. In the case of people who suffer from PTSD and anxiety, float therapy may just be a life-changing therapeutic option.
What Float Therapy Can Do
From the first session, you can expect to feel a great sense of physical and mental calm. Frequent users of float therapy report a heightened sense of smell, alertness, calm, clear thinking and ability to be in the ‘now’. Military veterans, as well as others who have experienced PTSD due to personal trauma, have shown remarkable improvement in their mindset and, for many, the first real relief from constant anxiety or worry about an episode occurring.
Float therapy is affordable and aids the mind in finding a calm balance, which also makes it an excellent tool for meditation and deep thinking. If you or a loved one would like to give float therapy a try as a supplementary treatment for PSTD or anxiety.
