Self-care isn’t selfish

By Jodi Marinilli on 24th Jun 2020

Let’s face it, life is hectic and the average nervous system is constantly in overdrive as we face daily stressors and busy schedules. We work hard and we deserve to treat ourselves to things that are going to nourish our bodies and minds so that we can continue to show up fully in our lives and be able to take on anything life throws our way. This is where self-care comes in. Self-care is not a new concept. It used to be all about the basics: 8 glasses of water, eight hours of sleep, make sure to eat fruits and veggies every day, get a yearly physical. However, self-care has become an increasingly trendy topic and something of a new-age idea.

So what is self-care exactly? Self-care requires discipline, dedication, and focus. It is about integrating daily practices that bring balance and awareness to your mind, body, and spirit, which in turn assists you in living each day to the fullest. It can be something as simple as starting a daily gratitude journal, a bedtime ritual of lavender tea, and a warm bath or introducing organic foods into your diet. The key is to find things that work for you. With an ever-increasing market of holistic health practitioners and wellness centers in Nashville, online, and around the world, the sky is the limit for exploring and introducing new modalities of self-care into your life!

At Float Horizen we offer Float Therapy, various types of massage therapy including Therapeutic Relaxing massage, Deep Tissue, Hot Stone, Myofascial Sports Massage, and Pre-natal massage. We also offer private Sound Meditation sessions… the options for self-care are endless! It’s all about finding what works for you, what makes you feel good.

So where does Floating, Massage, and Sound Meditation come into self-care? Floating allows you to tune out the noise of the daily grind. Close your eyes. Imagine you are floating effortlessly in a warm pool of water. 1000 lbs of Epsom salt gently detoxify your body and relieve pain from your aching joints and muscles; your mind is calm and relaxed. For one hour or more, you have complete freedom from the outside world. As you lay in this calm, supportive environment, endorphins are released adding to this relaxing experience while the lack of external stimulus to your nervous system allows your muscles and connective tissues to unwind, creating ultimate healing. Floating increases vitality, mindfulness, and leaves your body feeling buoyant and light, long after a session.

Massage allows you to relax and experience an overall feeling of wellness with a customized session to meet your specific needs. Your massage therapist will use a variety of massage techniques and tools such as Swedish massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue massage, essential oils, and hot towels to ensure a lasting sense of relaxation. Our goal is to meet your needs, relieve pain, aid recovery, and relieve tension in muscles and joints. Sounds dreamy, right?

Sound Meditation allows you to unlock your body’s inner healing power. Relax to the vibrations of Himalayan singing bowls, chimes, and gongs as you go on a “blissful ride” of frequencies and sonic vibrations. Detach from your day-to-day reality and free your mind.

We here at Float Horizen are beyond thrilled to invite you to add these modalities to your self-care practice. We offer a special introductory rate for first time Float and Massage sessions and private Sound Mediation session rates. We also have packages and affordable monthly membership options with some great perks.
