Floating has become increasingly popular thanks to its wealth of benefits for both the body and mind, including everything from reducing depression and anxiety to relieving sore muscles and promoting the healing process.
One of the most commonly overlooked pieces of training and injury is recovery. While you probably spend hours focused on your workout regime and fine-tuning your diet, recovery may not be something you think about. For athletes and anyone who wants to be better, stronger and faster while living a healthier lifestyle, promoting the recovery and healing process through floating at Art of Floating can be particularly beneficial.
Access Delta Brainwave Frequencies to Promote Healing
We often rely on getting adequate sleep to heal and recover from physical stress. When we sleep, our bodies benefit from deep levels of delta brainwaves which promotes healing and recovery. But there are other ways to supplement the healing and recovery process and one of those is through floating.
In a float tank at Art of Floating, the lack of sensory input allows for the brain to rest and drop from a busy beta frequency to a restful delta frequency which allows for the body to begin healing. This delta frequency brainwave state along with magnesium in a weightless floating state provides the perfect environment to speed up the healing and recovery process.
Float to Achieve A Meditative State
Floatation therapy relaxes both the body and mind through sensory deprivation, allowing one to drift off into a blissful state in isolation, free of distraction and the stress of day-to-day life that is important for healing injuries. Top athletes understand that competition can be more of a mental game than a physical one, and even recovery from injury can be just as dependent on your mental state as it has a powerful impact on your body. It affects everything from the nervous system to muscles and joints.
Fear, for example, that commonly comes from worrying thoughts like whether or not you’ll recover in time to run that marathon race or accomplish whatever goal you might have set for yourself, have an impact on recovery time. When you have more positive recovery expectations, scientific research, including a study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal has been shown to actually lead to faster recovery times.
When floating at Art of Floating, you’re in a zero-gravity environment that allows the body to totally relax – this helps athletes as every muscle in the body is now in a total relaxation state, essential for faster recovery. The pressure gravity has on the body is now removed, promoting healing while also improving blood circulation that’s important for speeding the recovery period after an intense workout or an injury. Even if you just want to improve your wellness, floating is great.
Floating Reducing Lactic Acid Build-Up to Promote Recovery
Studies, including 2013 research from Northern Illinois University’s Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, have found that floating can help reduce lactic acid build-up that occurs during intense exercise which leads to pain and soreness. It allows the muscles to relax and induce the body’s natural power of regeneration and healing.
Floating helps Decrease Inflammation
The high concentration of Epsom salt (a pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate) in the water helps reduces inflammation, as multiple studies have found. This is also key to quicker recovery while easing soreness and pain.
