Sleep and insomnia

Technology and our overactive minds often scupper a good night’s sleep. By reducing cortisol levels and allowing you to disconnect for an hour, floating can have a transformational effect on your sleep.

Floating can heal the systems that can disrupt our sleep

Some reasons for poor sleep are within our control - like drinking too much coffee, and using our phones in bed. Others like stress, anxiety and pain, are less so.

The mental health charity Mind suggests strong links between poor sleep and mental health and anxiety. Floating has been scientifically proven to have a greater and longer lasting impact on anxiety than other therapeutic interventions, and to reduce the activation of stress systems in the brain and body. And so, it is no surprise that many of our customers report having much better sleep after a session – even if that’s not what they came to float for in the first place.

Floatworks has evening slots at all of our centres. This is a great time to float for those suffering from acute sleeping problems

But irrespective of the time of day, regular floating will result in a lower baseline level of anxiety and stress, which is a powerful sleep aid.
