Many professionals agree a 60-minute session of Sleep Tank therapy achieves the same physical benefits as 3 hours of conventional sleep time in a bed due to the ability to allow the body to rest with the tissues and ligaments in their truly natural positions devoid the pressures of gravity that restrict / redirect blood flow.
The advantages of using floatation therapy are:
- The water and air is skin temperature so you can not feel either.
- The magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt) solution buoys the client so they feel as though they are suspended in space.
- All outside distractions are blocked except for a slight audible melody indicating your session is complete.
How it works
A floatation pool is a light-proof, sound-insulated space which contains a temperature controlled, shallow 30 cm pool of 25% (800 lbs) of magnesium sulfate solution – five times denser and more buoyant than seawater. When a client lays in the solution the body is effortlessly suspended and creates the sensation of drifting in space thereby allowing complete freedom from any physical stressors or tensions on the body.
Health issues Vital Warrior is addressing: Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety
The rise in insomnia a daily average is alarming. The outer world, as it gets busier, gets noisier. A disorder associated with the lack of sleep is, for one, depression. Even more so, the rise in pharmaceuticals creating anti-depressants such as Zoloft, and others is up 200% over the last 5 years.
Multiple areas of the brain are often over-stimulated by naturally occurring hormones to the point that the brain can remain active even when the body is laid down for a night’s sleep (amplified exponentially with cortisol, a hormone many clients that have experienced traumatic events struggle to regulate ). As a result, the mind never gets to rest and the body cannot sufficiently repair itself. (This particular effect is prominent in the case of repairing MTBI). Following on this, the body’s lungs never fully inhale or exhale when a full; deep sleep is not reached. Then toxins build up in the blood stream. This creates an imbalance in mental and physical health which may lead to decreased performance, and increased probability of chronic physical injuries.
Every year a new set of latest-and-greatest medications and pills pour into the market to address a problem that can be solved very simply – by getting a good night’s sleep and therefore, reducing the stressors in life.
Vital Warrior’s flotation therapy can restore the mind-body connection, re-establishing healthy sleep patterns.
