In today’s demanding workplace, stress and stress-related illness is something many employees face. This can lead to burnout, decreased productivity, job dissatisfaction, and affected personal life, ultimately impacting both employee well-being and company success.

The Isolation tank was developed in the 1960s by Dr. John C. Lilly. Floating in a tank is a unique experience and has helped countless people around the globe alleviate mental and physical stress. During a float session, you’ll float effortlessly in a tank filled with a skin temperature, magnesium-rich silky solution, creating a weightless and sensory-reduced environment. This unique setting allows for a profound mind-body connection to emerge, promoting deep relaxation and rejuvenation. This is where synergy is felt between the mind and body.

In just 60 minutes, most people feel an improvement in their mood, stress levels, sleep quality, and a reduction in body aches and pains.
Practicing float therapy regularly can offer these benefits and improve your overall quality of life.

Workplace stress and its effects:

One in five Australians (21%) have taken time off work in the past 12 months because they felt stressed, anxious, depressed, or mentally unhealthy. This statistic is more than twice as high (46%) among those who consider their workplace mentally unhealthy.

The potential impact of mental illness in the workplace is substantial – loss of productivity due to absenteeism, turnover of staff and the impact on co-workers, as well as the cost of government subsided medical care including medication and counselling.
Work plays a vital role in our emotional, social, and physical wellbeing and so employers play an important role in helping support employees with mental health issues and those working with them.

Benefits of incorporating an Employees Wellbeing Program:

Creating Stability and Strength:
Mental fatigue reduces one’s ability to engage in cognitive activities, such as making decisions. Emotional fatigue reduces one’s ability to engage in emotional activities, such as empathising with or caring for others. These are both important aspects to any job and company. Consider fatigue like a sprained ankle, by resting and supporting it with the right treatment, the ankle can heal quicker and better, therefore avoiding any further issues in the future and knowing how to support any use of that ankle.

The Parallel between Mental & Physical Health:
By reducing stress in our lives, we reduce cortisol levels in the body. When cortisol levels are up in the body, this means we are operating in the Sympathetic Nervous System, otherwise known as “fight or flight”. Floating puts us into the Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest & digest). This is essential a state of relaxation for the body to go through essential processes, heal and relax. By activating the Parasympathetic Nervous System, you can strengthen your immune system, improve your mood, and improve your physical health. Combining floatation therapy with other holistic practices such as this Traditional Chinese Medicine or specialised Lymphatic Reset Protocol is an excellent way to radically improve your health.

Pain Relief:
Floating has a wonderful ability to reduce muscle tension and soreness, speed up recovery, improve blood flow to the extremities and reduce the gravitational pressure off the spine. This is due to the high concentration of the Magnesium-rich Epsom salt in the water.

Company Benefits:
Recognising mental health challenges and promoting preventative treatment and care; benefits workplaces in many ways by reducing staff turnover and absenteeism as well as improving job satisfaction, morale and even attracting new employees and customers, as a business that’s supportive of its staff is a business that people want to support. Staff who feel supported and nurtured are more likely to work productively and stay with an organisation for longer.
