Floatation is an effective tool in a weight reduction program or for that matter any form of excess and or addiction.
After floating we are more ourselves and do not need to reach out for food or drink to fill us up. Again the production of endorphin’s with their feel good factor act as natural opiates to the body decreasing our desire for food as a remedy. The stressful withdrawal symptoms of need are replaced with the pleasurable feelings produced while floating.
There are two elements necessary for motivating oneself to accomplish specific goals and be free of non-adaptive or stressful behavior. These two elements are relaxation and focused attention. Floatation is an effective tool for positive self-motivation because it provides the following:
- Eliminates all external stimuli so you can concentrate on yourself
- Produces a very deep relaxation so you can be open to suggestion and open to positive thoughts and attitudes
- Produces chemical changes in your body which favor clarity of thought, improved memory and problem-solving
- Combined with complementary modalities, floatation is an effective tool for self-improvement
