Statistics show that up to 10% of teenagers and about 40% of adults suffer from one type of stress-related anxiety disorder or another. Mental health has been generally overlooked while it is actually one of the main causes of physical illness. In order to take care of our general wellbeing, we have to find a way to reduce our stress and anxiety levels. One of the modern day innovations to aid in improving our mental wellbeing is Floatation Therapy. It has become increasingly popular as a method of enhancing deep meditative state, to induce a feeling of overall relaxation and even to boost one’s creativity. 

Floatation Therapy is a healing and therapeutic exercise that relieves stress and anxiety in a peaceful and private environment. It involves the use of a floatation tank or sensory deprivation chamber. This tank contains about 6 to 12 inches of sterile water mixed with about 800lbs of medical Epsom salts to aid in floatation. This tank is completely light proof and soundproof. It has sufficient oxygen circulation. The aim is to lie in this tank for about 60 to 90 minutes in the completely dark and quiet environment and meditate. 

What actually happens is that the brain moves to the theta stage during the last 20 minutes of one’s stay in the tank which is the most relaxed stage of consciousness. This is also the stage before one goes to sleep and just before they wake up. The tank has a way to keep the user alert and conscious in this Theta stage which essentially relieves their anxiety and induces a feeling of peace and calmness. During this time, some users decide to expand their creativity levels. 

Several Floatation Centers and spas have adopted this exercise especially in the US and one can find commercial float tanks for relaxation in any of these floatation centers. Studies in the USA and Sweden show that floatation therapy has great positive effects on the reduction of pain and stress, and also lowers blood pressure. Whether one chooses to utilize this float service through passive floatation therapy which aims to relax the mind, or active floatation therapy that involves mantras, self-hypnosis and other therapeutic processes to open up their mind, the end result has never gone wrong. The only cautionary step is to avoid slipping and getting salts in the eyes while getting into the floatation tank. It is also advisable to keep the eyes closed during the process to avoid a feeling of disorientation. Floatation therapy can also complement other body healing exercises.
