Floatation Helps with Sleep Patterns and Insomnia.
A good nights sleep eludes many of us, especially with technology and our overactive minds often causing the problem. By reducing the levels of cortisol and adrenaline in your body, as well as increasing production of endorphins and serotonin your mind and body are in balance. Combined with allowing you to completely disconnect for an hour, floatation therapy can have a very beneficial effect on your sleep.
There are a number of reasons that can affect the quality of sleep. Some factors, such as drinking too much coffee and using electronic devices in bed, are within our control. Other factors, such as stress and pain, may be less so.
The mental health charity Mind suggests strong links between poor sleep and mental health and anxiety.
A recent study by the Mental Health Foundation also found that sleeplessness was a common symptom of mental health conditions, and that over half of people with depression have difficulties sleeping
Floating has been scientifically proven to have a greater and longer lasting impact on anxiety than other therapeutic interventions, and to reduce the activation of stress systems in the brain and body. And so, it is no surprise that many of our customers report having much better sleep after a session – even if that’s not what they came to float for in the first place.
Float Space provides late-night floating sessions until 10PM for those who need to float at night. This is great for those with acute sleeping problems, but nighttime floating will help everyone lower their baseline stress and anxiety which makes falling asleep easier.
