What Is Floating?
The practice of flotation (also called flotation therapy) is quickly gaining popularity in the United States as a primary means of rest, relaxation, and recovery. Additionally, it is being used as an alternative to medicated solutions for chronic pain and generating notable results. The weightlessness achieved by effortlessly floating in a dense salt water solution makes it possible for the muscular, skeletal and circulatory systems to rest in a zero gravity environment, a unique sensation that only astronauts and free divers will regularly experience. Interestingly, the life of all animal offspring originates in this weightless environment, which speaks volumes to justifying the reason we find comfort in this state.
here are 300 million Americans suffering from chronic illnesses - mysteries because medicine and science do not know what causes them, therefore cannot cure them. They can only hope to relieve some suffering by medicating the symptoms. Unfortunately, the medications cause terrible side effects. These illnesses always create pain and sleep disorders. Floating addresses and affects both pain and sleep patterns. Daily living keeps us in a flight-or-flight mode. Floating allows a safe place to decompress, turn off the adrenaline and heal.
loating benefits everyone with unique health problems, or without. Most people who float will experience a general sense of well being, clarity of mind, calmness, more energy and optimism, while feeling more positive and happy. There can be a decrease in cortisol and other stress hormones and of course, the personal favorite of a sleep deprived nation - better and deeper sleep.
Some people come to float in order to be more creative and think more clearly, to eliminate or reduce pain and hopefully heal their brain.. Some just want to unplug for a short period of time and relax. Whatever your reasons, try floating. Just do it and then do it again and again. It's worth it.
Purified Water Every Float
Our tanks have a multi-stage filter that sanitizes the mineral salt solution between sessions. Each soundproof flotation tank is thoroughly cleaned prior to every use and our staff ensures the solution in each pod is maintained at optimum temperature. In addition, you have he ability to completely customize your flotation experience. You can choose to float with the lights on or off. You can float with the tank lid open or closed. You also have the option to float in total silence or with music.
The mineral salts solution in each tank is comprised of 200 gallons of water and 800 pounds of medical-grade Epsom salts, creating an environment similar to the Dead Sea, which enables the individual to float effortlessly on the surface. The water is heated to skin temperature (93.5 degrees) so once you have settled into the solution it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water and those that are not. The density of the salt allows you to float on the surface without any strain or effort, free from the harmful forces of gravity. It almost feels as if you are floating on air.
With the elimination of external stimuli, the central nervous system's workload is reduced by as much as 90 percent, triggering a deep-relaxation response. The brain enters the theta brainwave state, which is normally difficult to achieve.
