What is PTSD?
PTSD stands for Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome. It’s a mental condition that many people experience after undergoing a traumatic event. After the trauma, people with PTSD deal with daily anxiety and painful flashbacks, forcing them to relive their trauma over and over. While PTSD can affect anyone, veterans are at a higher risk due to the life-changing stress of combat. It’s estimated that up to 20% of veterans experience PTSD.
How Floating Can Help
Float therapy is a wonderful way for veterans (and others) to cope with PTSD. Floating has proven stress-relief benefits and can help PTSD suffers to manage daily anxiety. The weightless sensation can also help PTSD sufferers deal with the physical symptoms of stress, such as muscle tension and tightening. Floating can be beneficial on its own or used in conjunction with other PTSD treatments such as talk therapy.
