Boost your immune system with Float Therapy
Floatation Therapy helps to boost our immune system by promoting relaxation and decreasing anxiety and depression. Floating is proven to lower cortisol, our primary stress hormone, alleviating mental and physical stress.
In this talk from the 2018 Float Conference presentation, Ph.D. candidate and researcher, M.C. Flux breaks down the biochemical reactions that occur when we enter the fight-or-flight stage and how that triggers an immune response. He describes the interconnected relationship between our immune system, stress and relaxation and the effect of regular floatation-REST on our immune system.
Findings from this initial research illustrate how floating helps to boost our immune system:
- The more sensitive a person is to anxiety, the more the immune system can benefit from floating.
- The more anxiety a person experienced in the week prior, the more benefit they had by lowering inflammatory responses when floating.
- The more relaxed a person felt while floating was proportional to the anti-inflammatory response they had.
Floating as a regular part of your wellness routine can help to increase relaxation and decrease stress and anxiety, which can lead to a stronger immune system.
