An addiction is a compulsion to do or have something.
A feeling of not being in control of their ability to say no
Feelings of stress and/or anxiety can occur when a person cannot access or act out their compulsion.
Both behavioral and cognitive psychologists and neuro-scientists now agree that the flotation tank is a powerful tool for overcoming addictions
FLOATING RELAXES THE MIND AND THE BODY
Much like the effects of meditation in terms of reducing anxiety, stress, blood pressure, muscle tension and changing brain wave activity.
When we float, the biochemistry of the nervous system shifts into a place of relaxation and expansion.
INCREASES INTERNAL AWARENESS
Being in the float room cuts out the need to place attention on external events, and instead shifts awareness inwards.
If there is a chance that we may return to our addictions, simply take a float, stimulate pleasure pathways, and avert the return to the habit.
A SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO ACTIVATE PLEASURE
If you or someone you know is struggling with an addiction,
Suggest flotation therapy as a safe and effective way to cope with addiction.
