How does floatation therapy support the body in recovery?
Magnesium absorption plays a huge role in the supportive qualities obtained through Floatation therapy.
It has finally become more recognised for its importance in our daily lives. As an essential mineral required by virtually every cell, it is incredibly important for our muscles and their many functions.
Our muscles’ ability to contract and relax is highly dependent on how much magnesium our body is getting.
A major process that magnesium is used for is metabolising nutrients and turning them into energy. It activates enzymes that help produce something called ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which plays a crucial role in the metabolic process. When our bodies break down ATP, the energy that is released is used by the muscles. Meaning that the more we exercise and the harder we exercise, the faster our bodies burn up the energy released from breaking down ATP.
And if you’re not getting enough magnesium, it can result in low energy levels and problems with muscle function including slowing down your recovery process.
When we are receiving appropriate amounts of magnesium needed for our body’s system, we allow our muscles to grow and heal at their intended rate. So, it might not be that Floatation Therapy speeds up recovery, it merely allows the body to heal at the degree to which it was originally intended to.
It has been studied and understood that our bodies are lacking in their magnesium levels. For many, they have been for quite some time. We become accustomed to running low on proper nutrients and minerals and believe that our bodies just are the way they are.
Let’s recognise the likelihood that we may just be void of certain things that our body needs to function optimally. We were born to live in a balanced and very alive state. When that is not happening we might be missing a puzzle piece, like magnesium, that helps us more quickly retain our optimal state of being in our bodies.
So, why not offer your body what it is missing, so that you can experience the recovery, the ease and the aliveness that your body was intended to be.
