If it seems like anxiety is an epidemic, you’re not too far off the mark. Anxiety is a general word that includes Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), specific phobias (like agoraphobia: fear of places or situations where you can’t escape easily) and panic disorder. According to DoSomething.org, anxiety is the most common form of mental illness in the United States. Symptoms include shortness of breath, headache, dizzy spells, rapid heartbeat and shaking or nausea.
Despite anxiety beating out depression as the number one mental illness, treatment is not often sought. Two out of three adults do not receive treatment and the number is even higher for teenagers where only one out of five looks for help. It doesn’t mean that help isn’t out there though. That’s where iSofloat comes in.
We All Float On
There are a lot of sources of relief for anxiety, but one often overlooked treatment is using a float room. No drugs or chemicals are used. Instead, you are senseless. Your sense of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing are suspended, which gives your brain a chance to process the calm. Your body remembers this calm and can be called upon in moments of anxiety.
and Your Nervous System
It’s not healthy for your body to sustain anxiety. It becomes part of our “body memory” and becomes a normal state. Choosing a floating regiment at iSofloat helps your brain “reset” because it’s not processing all those signals from your nervous system. Your brain enters a dream state of deep relaxation.
