Donate today and help veterans nationwide reintegrate with float therapy!
Floatation therapy takes place in a sensory controlled tank, usually at a float center. The tanks are filled with 10 inches of warm water and are packed with 1000 pounds of Epsom salts. Most tanks are 4 feet wide and 8 feet long and sessions in the tank typically last an hour to an hour and half. The environment of floating and lack of distraction from light allow for a therapeutic and meditative like state to occur. Through this process, a feeling of calm, rejuvenation, and mental well-being arise, especially with multiple sessions.
Being in the military and reflecting after Independence Day, I recommend floating to fellow Soldiers who are suffering from PTSD, anxiety, or depression resulting from multiple combat tours. Imagine spending multiple years constantly in fight-or-flight mode, but having no choice but to use fight? This very unique opportunity to help turn your brain off simply cannot be replicated elsewhere. For those who feel they do not want to turn and ask for help, I urge them to just try this. Floating allows those who may feel ashamed or hesitant to ask for help to feel empowered because they will ultimately be contributing to their own relief and journey of overcoming these mental battles.
