4 Reasons Float Therapy Help Working Professionals
Roll call for my working people. Doctors, lawyers, nurses, baristas, admin support, web designers, cooks, I’m talking to all of you guys! In my opinion any who works is a working professional, so yes ’m talking to you too! All jobs have their pros and cons, but burnout and and fatigue can happen regardless if you love your job or hate it. If you stare at a screen, juggle serval orders, or work a physically demanding job, chances are you would greatly benefit from float therapy or “floating” inside a sensory deprivation tank also known as an isolation chamber. Float Therapy is floating effortlessly in 12 inches of skin temperature water; 94-95°, 1,000 lbs of dissolved Epsom salt in the absence of light and sound. Here are a few ways float therapy can improve your work life balance and help prevent burnout.
One of the biggest benefits of floating in an isolation tank or float tank, is the ability to erase stress. Im sure you are aware of how dangerous stress can be to your health, if it goes untreated. Stress can cause a number of symptoms, including headaches, low energy, as well as aches and pains, floating is a way to treat all these simultaneously, and all you need to do is just simply float. When the mind does not have to process any sensory information such as light or sound, the mind can fully rest, as it does not have to work.
2. Pain Relief
Physically demanding work can take a toll on the body. Laborers, nurses, and bartenders, all experience achy joints, sore backs and feet. Float Therapy is like a huge sigh of relief for the body, as you get more comfortable in the float tank you will slowly feel the tension release from your muscles. Working while experiencing chronic pain is no joke, and can be almost unbearable. Floating in a 1000 lbs of Sulfate Magnesium, commonly known as Epsom salt, allow the body to experience complete weightlessness, resulting in a improved blood circulation, as well as reducing swelling and inflammation. Treating your chronic pain through float therapy, can make your job fun again, or at least more tolerable. Read more about the benefits of floating in Epsom salt here.
Most of our problems can be cured with a good night's sleep. Unfortunately for some, deep sleep is hard to come by. I remember being so exhausted from working really long hours, but struggling to fall into a deep sleep or just stay asleep. If you work night shifts, irregular hours, or just struggle with sleep in general, float therapy can give you the rest you have been desperately craving. A 90 minute float session can feel like a solid 8 hours of sleep, and still manage to sleep like a baby that same night. Float therapy is great for treating insomnia, and even providing relief from jet lag. We’re not called Reset for nothing.
A float tank is an artist’s playground. Complete darkness is like a blank canvas. What can your mind produce in the absence of everything? When the mind is not distracted with sensory input, floating can inspire creativity and innovation in the most unlikeliness of places. We had one client who had to leave their float early because they came up with an idea so good, that it had to be written down and explored immediately, he didn’t want to forget his amazing idea. His float provided an answer to a question he had been searching for weeks. Floating can inspire marketing concepts, new business goals, or help inspire completely new concepts or programs. For an artist, a float can unclog that creative block or even inspire people to create art for the first time. Its incredible what happens when the mind is cleared of thoughts, distractions, and even gravity. Our minds have great ideas, but sometimes, we need them to be quiet in order to hear what they have to say.
There are so many benefits to floating inside a float tank that can help make your job more tolerable, feel less burnt out, or even inspire innovating new ideas that help take your job or business to the next level. Like yoga or mediation, floating is a practice, the more consistent you float, the better the experience and the longer the benefits last. A regular float practice will improve your sleep, and help you feel better, and think more creatively.
