Did you know that one quarter of Australians will experience an anxiety condition in their lifetime and that one in six Australians are currently experiencing depression or anxiety or both? Mental health plays a vital role in our overall health and wellbeing. Our mental health affects the way we behave, feel and think.
Long-term stress is the cause of countless physiological effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, heart disease, weight gain and weakening of the immune system. The more stressed you are, the more cortisol your body produces. Cortisol is a “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection.
Floatation tanks let you experience the seduction of a crystal-clear mind, calmed nervous system and an improved quality of life. Our temperature-controlled and spacious floatation pods will allow your body to achieve a deep state of relaxation, through sensory deprivation (removing your sense of Touch, Sight and Hearing). Feeling the calming effects of a deep meditation whilst remaining in a state of physical relaxation. You will feel a complete sense of weightlessness as your body floats effortlessly in the concentrated Epson salt water heated to your body temperature.
Floatation therapy is used regularly as a safe and natural way to help calm the mind and body, assisting you with the challenges that are faced through your daily life pressures. The sensory deprivation that comes with a floatation tank allows you to leave behind the hustle and bustle that we too often have now become accustomed and accepting, and instead find yourself in a state of total relaxation.
Floatation therapy is one of the most effective treatments for reducing the body’s cortisol levels. Floatation allows the body to relax in a way that balances hormones and lowers blood pressure. Floating in Epsom salt also replenishes magnesium levels in the body, which encourages serotonin production. Serotonin elevates your mood and helps reduce stress and anxiety levels.
With COVID-19 continuing to unfold globally, many people are experiencing a vast range of emotions, stress and anxiety. Social distancing can make you feel isolated and lonely and the fear and concerns about your own health can be worrying. It also causes stress as you turn your attention to the health of those you love and care deeply about.
Searching for a balance can be challenging when it comes to mental health, and giving something new a try, you never know it may just be the best thing you have done for your own mental health. You will leave the floatation tank feeling, relaxed, rejuvenated and restored. Life’s many challenges can take a huge toll on life, but one of the best things you can do is take care yourself and do whatever helps you to de-stress and live a healthier, happier life.
