It is just over a year since the launch of our floatation pods at Sensom and we are noticing a steady increase in the number of ‘overwhelmed’ business people that are beginning to use floatation as an alternative method for reducing chronic stress and anxiety.
There is no doubt that higher levels of stress, depression and anxiety being felt in the workplace are having a significant impact on the quality of people’s lives. Indeed National organisation beyondblue’s State of Workplace Mental Health in Australia (TNS Global 2014) report estimated that untreated mental health conditions cost workplaces approximately $10.9 billion per year.
The many and often immediate physical and mental health benefits of using floatation therapy to help address and cope with these issues can be profound. Indeed you only have to look at the feedback we have received from clients to see how immediate the positive effects can be.
These are increasingly busy and demanding times and many people are finding that proactively managing stress and anxiety is a good start to addressing what can often lead to burnout and additional health related issues if left untreated.
And it is not limited to the business world. Whether it’s professional, personal, or sports related, people suffering from chronic headaches, arthritis, lower back and shoulder issues, sport injuries or simply a loss in performance, will find floatation therapy extremely therapeutic.
And yoga, massage and meditation therapies complement and support the floatation therapy on offer. In our “New York style” studio we really do offer a unique space and place to restore the mind, body and soul. Our holistic approach to supporting and managing health and wellbeing is unrivalled in the Hunter – why not come by, try for yourself and... feel different!
