(3) Promising effects of treatment with flotation-REST (restricted environmental stimulation technique) as an intervention for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD): a randomized controlled pilot trial
BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Published, March 2016
46 people: 25 REST and 25 control. 22 REST and 24 control included in analyses. Averaged age 43. 70% women. More people in control were on medication.
7 week treatment, 12 flotation sessions, 45 min/each
Surveys done at baseline, 4 weeks into treatment, and after treatment. Float group was also questioned 6 months after treatment.
The main findings were that flotation-REST significantly reduced both the general GAD-symptomatology, as well as several symptoms associated with the disorder, such as difficulties in emotional regulation, sleep difficulties and depression
