During the holiday season it’s important more than ever to keep our stress levels down and mind and body strong! Negative stress can wreak havoc on our bodies causing systems to shut down and cortisol (stress hormones) to rise making us more susceptible to disease.
Floatation Therapy is the perfect way to reduce stress keeping it at a positive level and boost your immune system. Float therapy really works! It offers you a unique way of regaining aspects of physical, emotional, and psychological health, in order to achieve a state of deep relaxation without any special training. It causes positive physical results such as reduced muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, fewer stress hormones, and increased endorphins. Like with all health practices the more time you dedicate to floating the greater the benefits. Most clients float once a week and some once a month depending on the reasons for choosing float therapy.
Imagine Yourself floating “effortlessly and peacefully” unplugged from daily stresses. Your mind will be free to drift and tension will melt away while floating in our state-of-the-art float rooms. You will feel completely relaxed and weightless as you float in a water solution of pure Epsom salt which will create the effect of near-zero gravity. You’ll float like a cork on the surface of the water which mimics the feeling of floating in thin air. Your spine will be elongated and your entire body will be completely relaxed, rested, and at ease.
During your float session, you have full control over the light and sound which you can dim if you choose at any time during your session. The water and room temperature is kept at skin temperature, which makes it difficult for you to distinguish where your body ends and the water begins allowing you to disconnect and unplug. Since your brain will not be interpreting and processing light, sound, temperature, and gravitational forces, it will be able to expand into areas ordinarily inaccessible except during deep meditation. Stress will be left behind, healing takes place more rapidly, learning and creativity are enhanced. Feelings of profound peace are induced by the release of endorphins. After your float, you’ll feel refreshed, rejuvenated, and calm, a feeling that can last for days also known as “the post-float glow.”
We are committed to maintaining the perfect float environment, with sparkling clean water for each and every customer with the highest standards of water quality. Each float room is filled with 200 gallons of water and 1000 pounds of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt. This concentration of salt alone would be an excellent sanitizer. We also use a powerful dose of ultraviolet light, pharmaceutical-grade hydrogen peroxide, and a heavy-duty filtering system. The entire sanitation system runs 24 hours a day.
Additional Float therapy benefits: Speeds injury recovery, muscle/joint repair, decreased inflammation, relieves arthritis pain, relieves pain from migraines, reduces blood pressure, improves sleep, promotes relaxation, deepens meditation, boosts creativity and visualization, aides anxiety, depression, fear, and PTSD.
To enhance your Float Session and to get the greatest relaxation benefits possible we recommend adding a Massage to your Float Session! Whether you have a massage before or after your float is a personal preference. A float before will allow your muscles to relax and your massage therapist will be able to access the layers of tension more quickly and work deeper, with less effort, producing significant changes and longer-lasting results to your body.
A float after a massage will allow you to relax more quickly into the float room environment. Floating after a massage has the benefit of soothing sore muscles that have been worked on, helping reduce the level of tenderness muscles sometimes feel following a massage treatment. Floating also draws out toxins that are released during the massage. Your skin is highly porous and soaking in the float room actually pulls salt out of the body taking harmful toxins along with it.
A massage and float combination is an amazingly relaxing and rejuvenating experience. You will leave feeling extremely relaxed and peaceful. You may find that this could possibly be one of the most relaxing experiences you will ever have! Float Therapy is the perfect social distancing experience and a great way to keep stress down or a healthier and happier you!!
