Managing PMS with Floating
An estimated 75% of women will experience PMS symptoms that range from slightly noticeable to intense. Float therapy can help.
Ask any woman about Pre Menstrual Syndrome (PMS), and you will hear about a wide variety of signs and symptoms including mood swings, tender breasts, food cravings, fatigue, irritability and depression. It’s estimated that 75% of menstruating women have experienced some form of PMS.
It is well documented that shifts between the hormones estrogen, progesterone, serotonin, cortisol and norepinephrine appear to make major contributions to symptoms of PMS. Fluctuations of serotonin, a brain chemical (neurotransmitter) that’s thought to play a crucial role in mood states, could trigger PMS symptoms. Insufficient amounts of serotonin may contribute to premenstrual depression, as well as to fatigue, food cravings and sleep problems.(1)
You don’t have to let these problems impact your life. Lifestyle adjustments like eating well, getting adequate exercise and sleep are of course helpful to ease PMS. Studies by Goldstein, Jessen (2,3) and Turner and Fine have also confirmed that a regular float practice reduced both the number of PMS symptoms as well as their severity. The women who floated most often had the most significant reduction in their PMS symptoms, and the relief was long-lasting. These studies indicate that a regular float practice regulate your hormones, which in turn reduces symptoms of PMS. Floating both before experiencing PMS, and during the height of your PMS symptoms have the greatest benefit.
