Could floating have the same effect on the brain as Atavin? Unfortunately, this medication, while highly prescribed for reducing anxiety, can also be addicting.
Dr. Justin Feinstein, the world’s leading float therapy researcher, has built a floatation therapy lab in LIBRE, a distinguished research facility in Oklahoma, to study what floating can do to the brain. And right now he is seeing the brain reacting similarly in the float tank as it did when he was studying the effects of Atavin.
Could there be an effective, non-addictive solution for some? Early results are looking promising and more studies are under way to validate the effects of floating on PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and mental health issues.
Floatation allows the nervous system a chance to relax. According to Feinstein, the level of relaxation achieved in a float tank is similar to that achieved with anti-anxiety drugs or meditation.
Every day we hear the most amazing stories from our floaters that feel like miracles for those who are experiencing calm minds or pain free bodies for the first time in a long time. We can’t wait to see what research reveals for floatation therapy!
