World Heart Day is September 29th and that’s a day we remember that Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and maintaining heart health is one of the most important factors affecting wellness and longevity.
According to the CDC, 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 lowers blood pressure, heart rate, and levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
The best part is, 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.
That’s why we call it “therapy.” Float therapy or floatation-REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) is an easy and effective way to invest in your health and happiness. By eliminating all external stimuli, a floatation tank lets your mind and body take a break from the constant environmental stimulation (gravity, temperature, sound, light, etc.) it normally has to process.
