Floating & Feeling Weightless
Have you tried floatation therapy?
Today I did my first float and experienced the many benefits of flotation therapy. After only 60 minutes I felt calm, light and replenished
Studies show that flotation therapy can improve injury recovery time, promote relaxation, reduce pain, eliminate fatigue and alleviate both physical and mental stress.
It has been seen to improve major symptoms of fibromyalgia and arthritis.
Replenish and rejuvenate
The float pods are filled with 600kg of Epsom salt solution to replicate an environment similar to the Dead Sea. So your body floats effortlessly on the surface of the water.
The buoyancy created by the salty water effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body, so you enjoy a feeling of weightlessness!
The temperature is set to a warm 35.5 degrees, our body’s temperature, so you cannot distinguish between the air and water thus giving you the floating feeling.
The body absorbs essential minerals, including magnesium, from the Epsom salt infused water, which facilities muscles to relax. As the body floats, pressure from all joints is released.
Disconnect and deeply relax
The tanks are designed to block out all external distractions, such as sights, sounds, tactile sensations and gravity.
The quietness and darkness is designed to eliminate stimulus so that your mind can drift into a deep state of relaxation and enter a meditative state.
Being still in a quiet space for an extended period of time really does clear your mind and facilitates a deep relaxation that reduces adrenaline and cortisol.
To feel weightless, improve energy, relaxation and better manage stress, try out a float session.
