The environments we’re exposed to on a daily basis are filled with things that can easily trigger a fight or flight response from our sympathetic nervous system. Float pods are designed to remove all that external stimuli and help your body naturally relax by allowing your sympathetic nervous system to take a break.
Naturally, there are a whole number of reasons you might want to trigger a relaxation response in your body: reducing stress, calming nerves, giving your mind the chance to catch up to your thoughts, triggering creativity, imagination and rejuvenation.
As your session in the float pod progresses so will your feelings of relaxation, focus and stillness. The essential minerals contained in the water will help improve blood flow throughout your body to cut muscle tension, blood pressure, stress hormones and pump endorphins instead. All of this works toward activating the parasympathetic nervous system and also moves you into a Theta brainwave state – one step removed from deep sleep. Relaxed enough for you?
