Today’s working professional will face many stresses as part of their job and the ability to concentrate is essential. Stress causes a lot of harm to the human body and when left untreated, it can wreak havoc on all elements of your life.
Study after study have found multiple mental health advantages with ongoing float therapy; including its ability to improve sleep while decreasing both stress and anxiety. Stress causes your hypothalamus (an almond-shaped part of your brain located above your brainstem) to tell your adrenal glands to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. Ongoing activity from the hypothalamus can lead to harmful depression. Our Burlington float therapy treatment is scientifically proven to help fight both depression and anxiety by minimizing the cortisol levels in your body. The therapeutic effects that regular water massage therapy has on the human body can include an improved quality of life, a better sense of well-being, increased energy levels, and overall better physical and mental health.
Float therapy oxygenates your entire body by increasing vasodilation – causing improved blood flow to your organs, limbs and brain. This increase in blood flow can help decrease muscular pain and even help with the agony caused by herniated discs and degenerative disc disease.
Water massage therapy can also be an effective tool in recovery from athletic training. Muscle stiffness and pain are common side effects that many athletes experience after working out. Our Burlington float therapy services have helped countless people by decreasing the lactic acid in the blood that causes common pains from working out. The mental health benefits from float therapy will also aid in an athlete’s ongoing training. By temporally giving the body a break from gravity, floating gives the body a chance to increase the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids that carry away waste and toxicants. NFL teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are just some of the professional sports teams that now embrace the science of hydro-therapy massage.
Insurance companies throughout Canada are now understanding the unique benefits of ongoing hydro-therapy and are now including treatments as part of employee benefit programs.
In order to have your hydro-therapy covered as a benefit, you must first book a meeting with an RMT or physiotherapist for an initial assessment. The claim made to your insurance company must include the medical professional’s name and registration number. You will find that most insurance companies will label your treatment as hydro-therapy on your documentation. Float therapy coverage can often be combined with other treatment options to provide a comprehensive treatment plan.
