The Benefits Of Bathing For Your Nervous System

SOAK is an explorative series into the art and science of bathing. Discovering how the act of soaking in water, can contribute to overall health and wellbeing.

Immersing oneself in a warm bath allows us to enter a state of relaxation. The parasympathetic nervous system predominates in quiet and restful conditions, signalling the body to enter a state of recovery. It tells your body it's okay to slow down, slows your heart and breathing rates, lowers blood pressure and promotes digestion. This practice takes effect as your nervous system adjusts to the warmth of the water enveloping you, lowering levels of stress. If feelings of anxiety arise, a warm bath can help the body physically change the way it processes that anxiety.
