Our immune system is our greatest defence against infection and illness as it protects us from bacteria, viruses and parasites trying to invade our bodies. Maintaining a healthy immune system requires constant effort and one of the factors that contributes to its weakening is stress. The stress hormone stops many people from achieving optimum health.
A session in a float pod helps drastically reduce stress and reverses its effects in a few ways. As your body becomes submerged in water containing essential minerals like magnesium, the effects of gravity begin to disappear and your muscoskeletal system relaxes as you float. By removing all sight and sound stimulation inside the pod, you’re exposed to an environment designed for optimum stress relief and complete rejuvenation. Your mind is able to process information and emotions at a higher level as your focus turns inward and your brain is flooded with endorphins.
Other functions of your body will improve when you increase immune system function including digestion and the regeneration of cells.
