Inside the float pod is 600kg of premium magnesium salts and 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).
The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that are not.
This buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body and brings the individual close to an experience of total weightlessness.
With ear plugs in and, if you wish the pods interior lights off the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation.
Over 20% of the brains energy is used every second to deal with the strains that gravity places on one’s body, floating allows for that energy to be redirected to other area of the body that need rebalancing and healing, so the weightlessness experienced when floating is very much a whole being self-healing therapy. The negative ions in the salty water improve the electrical impulses in the heart and brain and therefore effect all other systems, reducing cortisol levels, balancing the hormones, and remove stress from all areas of the body.
