Floatation Tanks: What is Floating?
Floatation therapy (also sometimes called sensory deprivation) is a luxurious way to soothe and heal the body from the constant stress of life's daily pressures. Experience total relaxation and deep healing in your private, peaceful space. It is the closest thing to a vacation you can get in just one short hour!
The tank inside is lightless and soundless and soon all of the elements come together and you lose sense of time and physical orientation. Although this may sound intimidating at first, it only takes about 15 minutes for most people to get acclimated to the conditions, and the remaining 45 minutes of a typical hour long session pass quickly. The benefits begin during this stage of floating but continue after you leave the tank. Many people say their body and mind feel refreshed for the following 48 hours.
Each tank has roughly 850lbs of Epsom Salt in it, so anyone will float effortlessly, and the water itself is kept at skin temperature. Floating allows the body to enter a deep state of relaxation and recover from stress, body aches and pains and more. Blood flow is stimulated through the tissues and natural endorphins are released. Pain is relieved and the brain releases alpha waves associated with relaxation and meditation.
Here are just a few conditions that can be improved by floating:
- Stress Relief
- Muscular Pain
- Chronic Pain
- Migraines and headaches
- Jet lag
