At The Floatworks we recognise the potential for a life changing experience through floatation therapy. The Floatworks has been the leading pioneer of floatation therapy for over two decades, and we have perfected the experience of floatation therapy from start to finish.
Research consistently demonstrates that floatation therapy has a significant impact on mood enhancement. Suggested reasons for this increased level of happiness include elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, through to the deep meditative state achieved during floatation therapy.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) supports meditation as a means for lowering blood pressure, easing symptoms of anxiety and depression, and more. Research from fMRI studies shows that meditating causes activity in parts of the brain associated with attention and decreases activity in the amygdala, which is responsible for our flight or fight response.
The latest floatation therapy research shows that during floatation, the amygdala basically shuts off, ‘turning down’ anxiety in the brain. The more you float, the better you get at achieving this state. The Floatworks delivers the deepest of meditative states to those who are not experts in meditation, so that everyone can enjoy the benefits.
Floatation can specifically be used to target pain and trauma. Studies have shown floatation to successfully relieve the painful symptoms associated with PTSD, relieve the strenuous elements of pregnancy and help with chronic migraines.
