Floating is one of the most powerful and effective tools for dealing with stress, pain, fatigue and poor sleep. Our clients include people with sleep disorders, anxiety, fatigue and others who are looking for the best way to restore their bodies to a younger state. Celebrities and professional athletes have used it for years. John Lennon is said to have used float therapy to overcome the powerful addiction of Heroin, Carl Lewis (the only man to defend an Olympic Long Jump title) claimed floating was his competitive advantage for quick recovery, our very own US Navy Seals use floating for taking control of their mental focus and many more over the years.
It has the power to restore the body’s own healingpower and to give you a sense of well being often found when returning from a relaxing vacation. Often compared to massage and meditation and just like those both of these therapies only gets better with regular use. Benefits continue to improve the more you float. Fatigue, stress, anxiety and pain have formed over time and can take time to reverse their grip.
Float therapy benefits are cumulative and build on themselves float after float. One of our doctor clients commented that he felt floating was like an "autonomic nervous reset button". It gives the mind and body the space to reset the autonomic nervous system in a motionless, weightless environment.
Floating aka, REST Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy has been shown to have a 1 to 4 ratio of sleep time. In other words, by floating your body can recover four times faster than sleep.
Regular floating may change your life!
Consider it a recipe for relaxation with 3 simple ingredients:
Most of us aren’t very good at meditating. We are aware of its many benefits such as pain relief, muscle relaxation, creative states, reaching the lucid dreamlike state known as THETA. It’s like forced meditation when all the external stimuli is shut down for one full hour.
Epsom salt works wonders on your skin, hair and nails while acting as a powerful skin cleanser.
Magnesium is easily absorbed through the skin and aids in joint pain, tension, anxiety and naturally relaxes your nerves and muscles. Sulfate is a natural detoxifier assisting in the elimination of heavy metals and toxins, detoxifying the body naturally.
At nearly 30% salt solution you can’t sink. By dissolving 1,000 lbs of USP Epsom Salt into less than 200 gallons of water the solution is denser than the Dead Sea. With no pressure points, pain relief can be achieved. It is easy to fall asleep and completely relax in this environment. During your float, the spine is allowed to decompress, elongate and release pressure causing pain. Lactic acid is slowly eliminated from your muscles further accelerating recovery.
