Emotional Benefits of Floating

Floating provides a number of physical benefits. At Mill Creek Float, we also know that float therapy offers several emotional benefits to clients.

Stress Relief

Stress is a constant companion to Mill Creek residents, along with many people in today’s busy world. Many of us are juggling multiple demands throughout the day. It is increasingly difficult to take time to stop and regroup in the middle of a busy schedule.

When a client is in a session in a float tank, they have time to spend alone with their thoughts. It gives clients a chance to step away from all distractions and stressors in their life and experience complete relaxation.

Helps with PTSD Symptoms

PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder) is a type of mental illness that affects certain people who have either witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. Instead of being able to come to terms with the past event and move on, these individuals experience difficulty sleeping, nervousness and find themselves going over the event in their mind long after the original incident.

Float therapy helps people living with PTSD by helping to curb the “fight or flight” signal in the brain. Instead of feeling as though they are back in the traumatic situation again, they can start to relax.

Reduces Anxiety

The warm water and extra buoyancy created by the Epsom salt in the float tank or pod creates an environment where clients can feel physically supported and completely safe. The muscles in the body learn to relax. With no external cues coming in to create any anxiety, the mind learns to follow suit.

Deals with Depression

emotional healthDepression is a common form of mental illness. It causes sleep disruptions, lack of motivation, hopelessness, guilt and worthlessness in those affected by it. Practicing mindfulness and getting relief from stress are two strategies, along with medication and talk therapy, to relieve its symptoms.

At Mill Creek Float, we understand the need to get away from the stresses of everyday life. Our float tanks and pools are designed to create an environment to promote mindfulness and and a stress-free environment during a session.
