Can You Float Away Your Stress & Anxiety?

Do you wish you could float away stress, insomnia or anxiety?

This tank filled with 200 gallons of water and 800 pounds of epsom salt may help you. “I find it a really easy place to get into and kind of unwind most of those things.” Says Hayden Buell, who uses Float Therapy.

The dark chambers are used for sensory deprivation therapy or flotation therapy. According to Pat Barrett, Float On Headquarters, “It’s a forced meditation. You’re just lying down for 90 minutes. There’s nothing to do, so you’re just sort of there and you’re present.”

Dr. Laurel Mellin of theEmotional Brain Training Center of Excellence points out, how long those benefits last is still questionable and caution… “If you like it and it feels good and it helps you relax and you can afford it financially, it might be a good thing to do, but it doesn’t deal with the root cause, which is the wiring in our emotional brain and all of us need more skills to process our emotions even when we’re really stressed.”

Hayden says he’ll continue to float his way to de-stressing. “After a float, I usually feel a lot calmer.”
