Floatation Therapy for Stress Relief: Clinical Evidence and Benefits

Floatation therapy has been clinically shown to help relieve stress [1] [2] [3], as well as alleviate a range of stress and pain related conditions including hypertension, chronic tension headaches, chronic muscle tension, back/neck pain, and stress-related pain with burnout depression. This is possible because the floatation process is designed to reduce as much external sensory stimuli as possible, allowing the mind to switch off and relax.

As a result, when people emerge from their floats, it feels like the mental equivalent of emptying their junk/spam folder, leaving their minds feeling peaceful and relaxed for at least the rest of the day, if not longer. This feeling of relaxation can be harnessed during everyday life, for instance, athletes can use the enhanced clarity and focus gained from float therapy to improve their performance during matches. Experience the benefits of floatation therapy for stress relief at our Altrincham spa and enjoy the peaceful and rejuvenating environment our float tanks provide.
