Do Float Tanks Relieve Anxiety?

October 18, 2022

Stress is common and anxiety is natural in a chaotic world, but it can also be miserable. In our lives, we have many things to worry about, from our own livelihoods to the health of loved ones to grim events in the news. It’s normal to feel overwhelmed, but it doesn’t have to be.

One of the most powerful ways to let go of stress is to float in perfect stillness and comfort, in a specially designed float tank. Filled with magnesium-rich Epsom salt, a float tank provides an escape from your worries in a place where meditation comes easily. Floating is a holistic, non-pharmaceutical way to relieve the symptoms of anxiety and PTSD.

Dr. Justin Feinstein, a clinical neurologist with the Laureate Institute, studied 50 patients within the whole spectrum of anxiety disorders, including PTSD, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorders, and agoraphobia. Some received counseling or medication or both, some received neither. Dr. Feinstein found that each person, 50 out of 50, experienced reduced symptoms of anxiety after their first float.

Floating is clinically proven to relieve symptoms of anxiety and PTSD, creating a safe haven from your worries and allowing you to come back to center with every visit.
