Anything worth doing, is worth doing well.
Establishing a regular float routine is the best way to maximize the physical and mental benefits of floating. While studies show that even an individual float session can have a positive impact by reducing stress, sharpening focus, shortening recovery time, and helping your body heal, to maximize the health benefits of floating, you need to treat it like any other lifestyle change and purposefully add it to your regular routine. The greatest long term benefits come with commitment to your health through cumulative floating.
From your first float, you may experience a reduction in stress, a sharpening of focus, a quicker physical recovery from training, but our lives have a way of hammering away at us daily and quick fixes seldom last. To combat that daily accumulation of physical and mental stress and the incessant gravitational pull of our everyday lives, cumulative floating should be an essential part of your physical and mental healing.
Cumulative floating prevents the stressors of your life, gravity and tension from accumulating in your muscles and mind. The more chronic the reason for your floating, whether it is a physical or mental issue, the more important cumulative floating is to maximize the advantages that come from this unique therapy.
Cumulative floating will enhance performance, increase mental sharpness during training, aid recovery and shorten recovery periods. Regular float sessions will help you enhance your cardiovascular system by increasing blood and fluid circulation rates, improving oxygen consumption, while lowering blood pressure and heart rates. The tension in muscles, tendons and joints eases when the gravitational pull is reduced, allowing cumulative floating to shorten healing and recovery time. T-cell production can increase, boosting your immune system and further speeding injury recovery time.
Dealing with the daily pressures of a high stress work environment, cumulative floating can simultaneously reduce that stress while sharpening mental capacity. Not only do the levels of stress-inducing hormones drop through cumulative floating, but by stimulating greater coordination of the left and right hemispheres of the brain, regular floating encourages your mental clarity, leading to increased creative thinking and problem solving.
For those looking to maximize their meditative practice
Cumulative floating will provide an ideal environment for reducing the noise of the outside world, allowing you to more rapidly reach a state of well-being and enhanced concentration. Studies have shown that repeated floating helps to increase creativity and mental acuity, helping you with visualization. Shutting out external stimuli refocuses your energy and can help you reach extreme relaxation known as “the theta state”, allowing the body to more naturally rejuvenate and achieve internal balance.
for those with chronic pain, anxiety, and other stress-related medical issues
Studies on cumulative floating have shown it to be effective in reducing pain and stress hormone levels while increasing overall well-being and mood. Cumulative floating can ease the symptoms of anxiety and depression, and has even been found to be helpful for conditions such as fibromyalgia and PTSD. Studies show that floating on a regular basis can therapeutically enhance your quality of sleep and increase the production of endorphins, leading to a greater overall enjoyment of life.
Like diet, exercise, and traditional medical therapies, floating works best when it becomes an essential part of your health and wellness routine. The full potential of floating to relax, revitalize and refocus is realized you when it becomes a regular part of your life. To maximize your potential athletically, professionally and mentally, make cumulative floating an essential part of your self-care and recovery.
