More and more people are discovering the benefits of float tank therapy and are feeling happier and healthier as a result. Float tanks have been in use since the 1950s and the benefits associated with their use are now widely documented. These benefits have seen the popularity of float tank centres explode across the globe, so if you’re interested in in trying it, you needn’t go far as there is likely to be one in your local area. Just google ‘float tanks near me’ or something similar and you should find one near you.

Here’s a quick look at some of the benefits that are associated with float tank therapy which has seen the number of float pods in Perth proliferate over the past few years. And with benefits like these, you can bet that there will be many more on the way!

Physical Benefits

We’ll get to the mental benefits in a moment, but first, let’s look at some of the many physical benefits of float tank therapy. Float tanks are used to treat a number of physical conditions, many of which relate to pain, like chronic migraines and pregnancy pains, for example. They are also increasingly used to treat sports injuries and research shows that undergoing regular therapy also:

  • Normalises blood pressure and heart rate. This is something that everyone can benefit from, especially those with heart conditions.
  • Aids digestion. This is a surprise for many no doubt, but as many people suffer from indigestion, changes in diet coupled with regular float tank sessions can do a great deal of good.

These are just some of the many physical benefits that are now so widely associated with the float tank therapy, here in Australia and around the world. If you suffer from a physical condition that is preventing you from leading a full and happy life, why not look for a float pod centre in your town and enquire about having a session? You’ll find that the staff are helpful and will genuinely want to assist you in reaping the full benefits of undergoing a therapy session.

Mental Benefits

The mental benefits of regular float tank sessions are perhaps better known than those of the physical benefits but they are still worth discussing in detail. As a float tank is a sensory deprivation tank, it enables you to achieve a deep sense of peace and that is very good for your mental health. People with depression or anxiety issues (many people now suffer from anxiety and depression and need to take pharmaceuticals as treatment) will find that float tank therapy sessions are great for calming the mind and achieving a peaceful state that continues once the session is over.

Whether you suffer from physical pain or mental anguish, float pod therapy sessions can do wonders for improving your quality of life. As there is sure to be one located near you, why not get in touch with a local clinic and book yourself in for a session today? You have everything to gain and nothing to lose.
