Imagine Yourself Floating in a Bath of Body Temperature Water, in Complete Quiet, and Darkness.
Sounds relaxing right? Float Therapy is certainly peaceful, but its even more than that.
Floating For Relaxation
Sensory deprivation tanks help induce a deep state of relaxation by turning down the body’s “fight or flight” stress response. Evoking a natural relaxation response is considered an effective remedy for stress-related symptoms because it activates the parasympathetic nervous system, while at the same time decreasing activity of the sympathetic nervous system. Essentially, floating helps lower cortisol levels and calm the nervous system, bringing the immune and hormonal systems back into balance.
Floating for the Body
The extreme buoyancy that individuals experience when floating is like experiencing anti-gravity. This allows those with joint or muscle pain much needed relief that they cannot get otherwise.
When you finish floating, immediate benefits include soft skin, relaxed body, calm mind and an increased sense of well-being. For the next day or so you’ll likely notice a reduction of pain and inflammation, and an exceptional night’s sleep after floating. A practice of floating will increase these effects and allow them to sustain longer, providing consistent benefits.
Contrary to the beliefs of some, the salt in the float pod does not dry out the skin or accelerate aging. Many people say their skin feels soft afterward and some even report it helps with skin conditions like body acne.
Floating for the Mind
The first few floats might be a challenge as you work hard to quiet your mind. Some people may feel uneasy at first, so we have calming light options that can be turned off to allow new floaters to get comfortable during the first few minutes of their float. There is also an option to have relaxing music played during part or all of your float.
