Benefits of Floatation Therapy
The ultra-deep relaxation of floating resets your body’s hormonal and metabolic balance while strengthening resistance to, and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.
While the benefits of floatation therapy are as diverse as the people who love it, some of the most common include:
Sometimes your body requires rest from all it is asked to do. Floatation therapy provides an environment where your body is free from the harmful forces of gravity. Epsom salts, containing a high concentration of magnesium, have been used for centuries to soothe pain and muscle strains, as well as to draw toxins from the body. There is no pressure on your joints or spine, and the result is that you are fully able to relax while healing areas of your body that might normally be painful. Magnesium is also known to be highly efficient at curing sleeping disorders such as insomnia and restless-leg syndrome.
Sensory deprivation allows your mind to reset and achieve a truly focused level of concentration. In such a state, creativity becomes heightened, and your brain can process and analyse information more constructively. You’ll emerge from your float with a clearer mindset and more focused thoughts.
Your spiritual floatation journey begins as you enter the Theta brainwave state, similar to drifting towards sleep in a dream-like state. With no distractions from the outside world, you can experience deep and profound relaxation, while your brain stays alert and releases a vast amount of endorphins. Floatation therapy has been proven to help individual experience extended periods of Theta brainwave activity quickly, which usually requires hours of meditation to achieve.
