Float Therapy: Benefits On Sleep Patterns
On average, you spend about one-third of your time sleeping. Indeed, it is recommended that you sleep at least 8 hours per day for your body to function on its optimal condition.
During deep sleep or restorative sleep, the brain enters the theta wave state. The body restores and heals itself as the tissues and cells regenerate at a faster rate. This is why good sleep is often characterised by waking up feeling pleasantly refreshed and strengthened. After all, the human body is just like your phone: it needs to be recharged to operate more fully and effectively.
However, despite its necessity, a good night’s sleep is a rare and elusive thing. Our brain can have a hard time keeping up with the constant barrage of external stimuli and a continuous stream of information. As such, it takes longer for the brain to slow down its activity enough to lull us into slumber. This leads to problems in sleep patterns, such as insomnia.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways available that can help you improve your sleep patterns, one of which is float therapy.
Float therapy involves submerging yourself in a float tank, specially designed to detach the brain from outside stimuli. The lack of sensory experience inside the tank allows the brain to rest and unwind. This makes it easier for the brain to enter the theta wave state and start its restoration.
Additionally, repeated sessions of float therapy improve your homeostatic mechanisms, which enables the body to be on its top form. Stability in the homeostatic mechanisms leads to enhanced quality of life, as it regulates body temperature, blood sugar levels, and blood pressure.

Floatation Therapy and the Health Benefits It Offers
Floatation therapy involves being submerged in a float tank that contains a highly concentrated Epsom salt solution. This solution increases the buoyancy levels, thus helping you float effortlessly. The float tank aids in achieving sensory deprivation, in which all external stimuli are removed to help you relax.
A float tank is completely soundproof and lightproof, and the temperature is moderated to remove the sensation on your skin as well. Thus, you will feel disconnected from the world around you, allowing your mind to focus on staying calm without any distractions.
The effects of floatation therapy on the body and the psyche can be best observed over a period of time. However, even an hour of floating can bring about interesting benefits. For instance, during a float therapy session, there will be a marked decrease in the levels of cortisone in the brain, thus relieving you of feeling stressed. Additionally, the calm and peaceful sensation during float therapy helps your brain enter the theta brainwave state. (more…)
How Float Therapy Can Help Working Mothers
Being a mother is the most respectable job in the world. It is, however, also a difficult and tiring responsibility. There’s no break when you are a mother; from the moment you bring a life into the world, you would then do your best to ensure that your child is cared for, loved and raised well. And though motherhood certainly feels fulfilling, there’s no denying that it comes with a tremendous amount of responsibility.
It even becomes more challenging when you’re a working mum. Aside from making sure your child’s needs are met, you also have to handle tasks at work. You have to perform a tough balancing act daily, and it can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming and can lead to feeling stressed.
There are various relaxing activities suggested for mothers to relieve stress. One of the more unique and effective ones is float therapy. Float therapy involves getting in a float tank filled with a special Epsom salt solution. This solution helps you feel weightless and thus float without difficulty. Being in a float tank also takes away your sensory experience, freeing you from the external stimuli that contribute to rising stress levels.
Even just one session of float therapy can offer mothers their much-needed relaxation. Float therapy is just the gift mothers deserve: they’ll feel taken care of when they usually do the same for their children.
Several other benefits of float therapy are the following:
- Reduces anxiety
- Relieves body aches and muscle pain
- Enhances concentration and creativity
- Helps improve mental health
- Flushes out toxins from the body
- Helps optimise how the body functions
- Improves the quality of sleep
The complete freedom float tanks provide will be an amazing and reinvigorating experience for working mothers, who are so often constantly taking care of others both at home and at work. They will be able to focus inward and take care of themselves for once.
