Floatation tanks are now being offered to treat soldiers with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In Sweden, floatation tanks are now being offered as part of the Health Service.
The critical benefit from floating is that as your brain acclimatises to the lack of sensory stimulation, your brain wave patterns slow down.
The result is a profoundly deep state of relaxation that stays with you for days after. Profound experiences of meditation allow you to compartmentalise the anxieties and stresses of your life rather than allowing them to blend through to all of your thoughts. Less stress, clearer thinking and the physical benefits associated with greater relaxation- floating can dramatically change your life.
