Alternative Therapy for Veterans with disabilities
At Brook Belle Alternative Healthcare we are proud to serve our veterans with disabilities and PTSD. We are partnered with, and accept VACCN Insurance to provide Chiropractic Care and Aquatic Therapy for veterans. We also offer Float Therapy in combination with these services. The VACCN provides disabled vets with referrals for our chiropractic services and our aquatic therapy to help with pain and rehabilitation related to injury or illness. We also offer our floating services at discounted rates for veterans because we feel it can be very beneficial, especially in patients suffering from PTSD.
Float Therapy for Veterans with PTSD
Veterans who have PTSD often report feeling overwhelmed and over stimulated with the world. At Brook Belle, we want to try to help offer relief from some of those feelings. Flotation therapy is a powerful stress relief and wellness tool. It can offer a multitude of physical and mental benefits for veterans suffering from PTSD. During a flotation session, the client will rest in a sensory-controlled environment (in a floating tank/floating room), floating on the surface of a super-saturated salt-water solution (filled with Epsom salt). While floating, the veteran cannot sense any noise, smell, light, or any gravity! The absence of all of these stimulants provides an extremely relaxing experience for the mind as well as the body. Floating is shown to reduce stress hormones, reduce pain, and helps to stimulate endorphins (a beneficial "feel good" hormone in the brain)

As a Veteran, what benefits can you expect to see from Floating?
Relief From Stress
Veterans who have been diagnosed with PTSD can benefit from Float Therapy in many ways-
When participating in a float session, everything in the outside world is shut out, and this provides the veteran with an environment that lets the nervous system take a break from the constant exposure to anxieties and stresses that it goes through so regularly. Choosing to pursue this kind of treatment for our minds and bodies can be one of the most refreshing and nourishing things we can do to help us get through the day in our healthiest possible state.
Helps You To Sleep Better
When used for a long period of time, float therapy is able to help you sleep a lot better. Reports have shown that a floatation session that lasts around 90 minutes is able to compare side by side to the sensation of having an entire night of uninterrupted rest. The end result is that you leave your session feeling rejuvenated, refreshed and therapeutic.
Gravity is not an issue, so all of your bones, joints, and muscles are finally given a chance to get some well-deserved rest from being used so often. You can expect a calm that is natural that has you rising every morning with more energy and a better night’s rest than you’ve ever had before. Giving your body the break it deserves will help channel all of your valuable energy to different areas so that you can be more productive throughout your day.
Helps Adjust Your Behavior
In addition to reducing the negative effects of physical symptoms, floating is also able to help bring more attention to noticing different behavioral patterns so that they can be adjusted.
Reduced depression, decreased anxiety, and alleviated stress are just a few of the calming results that floatation therapy provides.
If a patient has been struggling with the same addiction or bad habits, one of the best things that can be done is for a brand new routine to be introduced to the body. Eventually, even the strongest addictions are able to be worn down and eliminated.
As human beings, one of our most natural tendencies is to hide what we are going through, and as a coping mechanism, put it on the back burner so that we never have to deal with it. Issues like PTSD, addiction, anxiety, depression, chronic or physical pain are all able to be pushed aside if we aren’t intentional.
Ultimately, this is not the right way to handle these problems, even though it may be the easiest way to handle it. The best thing we can do for our emotional health is to face what we are going through, and floatation therapy provides you with an opportunity to do just that. Using this as a supplement to your regular health routine could be the combination that you need to try next.
VACCN insurance does not currently cover the cost of flotation services, but at Brook Belle, we believe that our Veterans are worth it. Ask us about our discounted and even FREE float sessions.
Helps You Relax
When the body reaches a certain amount of relaxation, it is able to cause positive physical results like reduced muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, fewer stress hormones, and increased endorphins.
If you’ve tried everything else to make you relax with no success, it might be time to try something new.
The relaxation that is triggered in a calm and secluded environment will fill a person’s body with endorphins that help relieve and reduce pain. For disabled veterans who know about the many hardships of chronic pain, this can make a huge difference.
On top of that, this type of relaxation can assist in suppressing addictions, anxiety attacks, severe depression, PTSD and can shift an individuals overall mood to be more positive.
Helps You Focus
There are few places in the world where you are able to achieve the same kind of relaxation that you find from using floatation therapy.
This level of relaxation encourages visualization and lucid dreams that are much stronger than normal, even though you are very much awake.
