"In the United States, we live in a very busy society. We spend so much time rushing to point A to point B and then onto C, D, E ... and it seems to go on forever. With so many tasks to complete in one day, it is no wonder so many people suffer from anxiety!
I am not exempt from anxiety. Anxiety and I have been acquainted for quite some time. Some of my symptoms can be debilitating and the random panic attacks do not help one bit. I was tired of the intense feelings of worry and the inability to relax.
I have tried many 'modern' techniques to control my anxiety. These included multiple visits to professionals, pharmacies, and came with a variety of different diagnosis and "cures."
I began meditating and found that deep breathing helped calm my mind and body. I learned that for me, there wasn't a 'cure' for my anxiety. There are positive ways to manage my anxiety. After this discovery I was searching for different ways to manage my anxiety and take back control of my life.
Through random luck, I heard about Floating and decided to check out Metta Relaxation Company. The first time I floated it took me a week to describe the experience. While floating I naturally triggered my body's relaxation response and I was able to reduce the clutter in my mind. As my senses recharged I was able to deeply meditate. I could feel each breath, every heartbeat and it felt as if my body was expanding infinitely through outer space.
When I came out of the tank, I felt like a new person. I felt like my body and mind had somehow 'reset.' I felt relaxation, calmness, and bliss. Life was different and improved after I got out of the tank. I could just feel the transition. I have never felt more relaxed in my life. The air was fresher, the world was brighter, and even food was enhanced. I gained a sense of confidence, optimism, and motivation. Floating has allowed me to manage my once anxiety filled world.
The best part about floating is the residual impacts. I feel stronger in my ability to face my anxiety and in turn my anxiety symptoms have reduced. I could easily feel the mental and physical impacts for days after floating.
Floating has not cured me of my anxiety, but it has been a successful tool in taking back my life. I can feel myself growing more confident and it has been nice to feel a positive relief in the anxiety I feel everyday. Since I have been floating for twelve weeks I can notice the positive change in myself and so can other people around me.
I wrote this in hopes that others can find relief too. I know I will never be 100% anxiety free, but I now have a better quality of life because of floating and therefore, I have to give Thanks to the Tanks! You have my gratitude.
Thank you & Love to everyone at Metta Relaxation Company.
