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:
For optimum health your body requires regular rest from the rigors of daily life. Floatation therapy provides the perfect environment where your body is free from the constrains of gravity allowing for an amazing change to occur. Epsom salts contain a high concentration of magnesium and has been used for centuries to soothe aches and pains, aid in muscle strain and injury recovery. There is no pressure on your joints or spine resulting in deep relaxation thus allowing for the body’s own natural healing to occur. This also helps you to become more connected to the areas of pain, often due to stress (both physical and mental), and in turn this greater awareness helps in the prevention of future injury. The combined effect of floating in the concentration of magnesium also helps with drawing toxins from the cells of the body.
Intellectual Sensory Deprivation allows your brain to reset and achieve a truly focused level of concentration. Floatation Therapy allows for the balance and improved communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. 20% of the cortex of the brain is used to process sensory input, mainly visual and auditory, having both of these resting allows for a greater capacity to focus on what it is that you want, without distraction. Ever had writers block, want to reduce your anxiety in performing in public or design a new item? Well, amazing things happen when you allow “time out” from external sensory input. In a float tank you can reach such a state, so that creativity becomes heightened, and your brain can process and analyse information more constructively. You will emerge from our float session with a clearer mindset and more focused thoughts.

The Theta brainwave state, is occasioned with REM sleep where the brain wave cycles slow down, allowing you to easily tap into your subconscious mind. This often takes years of meditation to master. They have now discovered that when floating in a sensory deprivation or sensory enhancement environment, one can effortlessly reach deep mental and physical relaxation. Cortisol (stress hormone) levels drop, as all stress is removed from both your physical and mental processes. Your brain stays alert and releases a vast amount of endorphins (happy hormones). Floatation Therapy has been proven to help individuals, experience extended periods of Theta brainwave activity, quickly and easily.
