FLOAT THERAPY

Imagine yourself floating in a completely controlled environment, in your own private room that blocks out all sight and sound, with no sensation except the gentle caress of clean, body-temperature water that’s loaded with magnesium-rich Epsom Salts. If you can do this, you will have some idea of what flotation therapy is all about. Floating is one of the most effective and incredible means of stress relief and relaxation available. Flotation therapy is used to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions as a means of recovery. By eliminating all the stress and distractions of the outside world, floating provides an experience far removed from daily life. At the same time, the floater receives the timeless health benefits of the ancient mineral magnesium, which guards against osteoporosis and other chronic illnesses while making the floater extra buoyant in the shallow water of the float pod. If it sounds simple and basic, that’s because it is. A simple way to achieve profound relaxation, meditation & wellness!

WHY SHOULD I FLOAT?

Ongoing studies show that flotation therapy can help reduce stress, alleviate chronic pain, and even enhance athletic performance. In the zero-gravity environment of the float tank, your body is able to relax in a unique way, not just physically, but also psychologically and emotionally. In this state of deep relaxation, your brain increases its production of theta waves, which are creative impulses normally produced in the process of meditation and during transition from consciousness to sleep. Many people who have floated report achieving a state of total mindfulness that makes them feel more creative and insightful, sometimes for days after a float session.

 

Stress Relief

Flotation therapy offers instant relief, and requires no skill set. Floating helps to diminish fatigue, improve sleep, energize, rejuvenate, and revitalize. A float session eliminates stress, leaving you with a clear mind to focus on your highest intentions. It increases creativity, awareness, the ability to solve problems, concentration span, and energy levels. Flotation can also increase motiva- tion, diminish depression, and facilitate freedom from habits, phobias, and addictions.

 

Pain Control

Floating causes the body to release endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller. Released in times of comfort as well as pain, endorphins are far more powerful than many prescription drugs and have no side-effects. Sufferers of migraine, back pain, arthritis, skin disorders and many other ailments can find particular relief from regular floatation. Flotation can lower blood pressure and heart rate, and can minimize the risks of heart attacks and strokes.

 

Athletics

During flotation, every single muscle is allowed to rest and recover. This total relaxation gives all muscles a much needed break, and the benefits can be startling. The rate of recovery after physical exercise can improve dramatically. Recovery time from an injury can be reduced to hours or days instead of weeks or months.

 

Additionally, the float tank has been shown to prevent sports injuries, decrease production of lactic acid – the burn athletes feel during strenu- ous activity, increase production of endorphins to help relieve pain associated with injury, and boost immune function. Athletes using the tank have found rapid improvement in their performance. After years of underachievement, a national foot- ball team acquired a tank and went on to win the NFC Championship. Baseball players on a major league baseball team noticed the tank in their locker room and decided to try the technique themselves. Many of the players began floating and the team went on to win its first World

Series in decades.
