Understanding anxiety and depression

It’s important to understand the nature of anxiety and depression and how these feelings can come about. These may be feelings of worry and unease to overwhelming sadness and lethargy. These feelings can stem from factors, including stressful events happening around you or rough experiences you may have had. Managing anxiety and depression often requires a range of different approaches from talking it out in therapy, changing up your routine, and making time for self care. It’s often figuring out what works for you.

Float Therapy for mental health

Float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation or isolation therapy, involves floating effortlessly in a pod filled with saltwater heated to skin temperature. The environment is designed to eliminate external stimuli, allowing individuals to enter a state of deep relaxation and sensory deprivation. The buoyancy of the water supports the body, relieving pressure on muscles and joints, while the absence of light and sound creates a tranquil space for introspection and rejuvenation.

Stress reduction:

Float Therapy provides an escape from the fast pace of everyday life, giving you the opportunity to disconnect and unwind. The sensory deprivation experience creates a calming environment that promotes relaxation, lowers cortisol levels, and induces a state of deep relaxation. This reduction in stress can alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and depression, allowing you to experience a sense of tranquility and inner peace.

Enhanced mental clarity:

In the weightless environment of the float tank, the mind is free to wander without distraction. This elevated state of awareness can facilitate introspection and self-reflection, allowing you to gain insights into your thought patterns and emotional triggers. Float therapy enables you to journey through your inner thoughts with increased ease and resilience by nurturing mental clarity and mindfulness.

Pain relief:

Physical discomfort and tension often accompany anxiety and depression. The Magnesium salt in the water of the float tank has natural pain-relieving properties to sooth sore muscles and alleviate bodily aches. As the body relaxes, so too does the mind.

Improved sleep quality:

Disturbed sleep patterns often occur when struggling with anxiety and depression. Float Therapy has been shown to improve sleep quality by promoting relaxation and reducing overstimulation of the mind. This can also help to break the cycle of insomnia. Did you know 1 hours worth of sleep inside the tank can be equivalent to 4-6 hours of uninterrupted deep sleep?

Float Therapy is a unique and effective way to managing anxiety and depression, providing relaxation to the mind and the body. The Bathhouse girls like to recommend maintaining these benefits by enjoying Float Therapy once a month. It's important to emphasise that prioritising self-care on a monthly basis isn't selfish; it's necessary for your overall well-being! Click here to begin your Float Therapy journey. #staysipsoak
