February is Heart Health Month: maintaining heart health is one of the most important factors affecting wellness and longevity. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States: 1 out of every 4 deaths is attributed to heart disease. Heart disease affects people from all different backgrounds and across all income levels. It’s an unfortunate common illness in this country.
The relationship between stress and heart diseases, such as blood pressure, heart rate, and weight distribution, is so important. Along with diet and activity, floatation therapy can help protect your heart from disease.
Stress Is Bad for the Heart
Stress is a major contributing factor to heart disease. Stress creates many problems in the body, such as increased blood pressure and an increased likelihood of blood clots. Both can increase one’s chances of developing heart disease.
Consistently high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol also wreak havoc on the body. Elevated levels of stress hormones raise the heart rate. Cortisol also causes higher concentrations of fat in the abdominal region.
Reducing Stress Naturally
Floatation therapy helps lower stress and promotes better heart health. Floating naturally lower blood pressure, heart rate, and levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Furthermore, floatation therapy has no negative side effects. By reducing stress through floating rather than heart-damaging behaviors like drinking alcohol and smoking, floaters get the benefits of stress relief naturally without any of the drawbacks of unhealthy or unsafe methods.
Still not intrigued? Read this testimonial from one of our clients from a sister True REST Float Spa: “Ten years of chronic, constant pain and in one hour I finally got relief! Each time I’ve come back my pain levels are lower than the time previous and the relief lasts longer after each float. Every time I come out of the REST Pod my pain levels return to zero or near zero! WOW! Thank you True REST.”
