Whether its emotional stress or physical stress, the float rooms create the perfect environment to relieve the body and mind of both.
Floating is proven to accelerate the healing process of many kinds of injuries. It also aids in the release of endorphin throughout the body – acting as a natural pain killer.
Floating takes place in a salt water tub with 1000 pounds of Epsom salt in just 200 gallons of water. Meaning that the water is so dense with salt, that anyone can trust the water to hold them up in perfect alignment under zero gravity conditions. The water is heated to 93.5 degrees – average skin temperature. The ideal environment is for one to turn off the lights, though the lights can stay on as well. The idea is to be relieved of as much external stimuli and stress as possible.
One might ask, “what could you possibly gain from floating in a shallow tub full of salt water?” And the answer would be, there are so many benefits, its hard to list! Flotation therapy has been around within a controlled spa environment since the 1950’s, but historically, the relaxation of floating on top of still salt water has been around for thousands of years. There’s something about being in this womb-like state that our bodies respond extremely well to.
