5 Ways Floating Helps Chronic Anxiety

Stress-related injuries and illnesses are the most commonly cited cause of hospital and doctors’ office visits. However, some experience stress levels higher than most. Chronic anxiety is a debilitating mental condition experienced by thousands of Americans. The causes of chronic anxiety are not well understood.
