Getting adequate quality sleep at the right times is just as important to our existence as food and water. Our brains are designed to process a lot of information and input daily. That is why it’s important to make sure that you are giving your brain enough time to rest and recharge consistently.

Without enough sleep, our response time, memory, and decision making can be adversely impaired as a result. Although there is still much to learn about the role of sleep in our physiology, scientists have noted the important role sleep has to play in removing toxins from the brain, re-energising our bodies and supporting learning and memory. Research shows that poor quality sleep can increase the risk of disorders such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, and obesity.

In the floatation therapy industry, the role sleep plays in the quality of life of people is an area of particular interest. Many people who have engaged in flotation therapy have boasted about its many benefits, including improvements in their overall quality of sleep. A great way to ensure getting adequate rest is sleeping while you float in an environment that has little to no sensory stimuli is essential so that you can completely relax and rejuvenate.

By placing you in a flotation tank that enables you to truly unplug and disconnect by blocking out all visual, audio, and tactile distractions, you are transported in an intensely relaxed state. A state that seems to have the hallmarks of the different sleep stages, therefore, assists the brain in the same way as a night of restful sleep.

Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapies (REST) such float therapy has numerous benefits, according to scientific studies. There’s no way to replace a good night’s sleep to help your body and your brain recharge. But regular sessions of float therapy have been scientifically proven to improve sleep quality.
