What are the benefits of floating tanks?
Floatation Therapy has been scientifically proven to help stress (both mental and physical), fatigue and jetlag. It stimulates left/right brain synchronisation, shifts brains waves from beta to low frequency alpha, theta and even delta waves. It also decreases the production of the stress hormone; cortisol, ACTH, lactic acid & adrenaline, and increases the production of endorphins.
It’s also known to promote total calm and peaceful relaxation, improve sleep, energise/revitalise, rejuvenate the body, and create mental clarity, which in turn can increase creativity.
