Floating is a simple and easy experience that brings an incredible list of benefits to your body and mind. There are many reasons to float and each individual will have a different goal in mind for their float experience. The benefits of floating are real, tested and scientifically proven but we recommend you give it a try yourself to understand it better.
Floating creates a relaxation response by naturally supressing the response of the sympathetic nervous system, leading to decreased muscle tension, blood pressure and stress hormones while releasing endorphins.
Floating has been proven to reduce pain from arthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, bursitis, and inflammation.
Floating naturally places your body into a position of relaxation that causes your brain to release endorphins and reduce stress.
Floating is able to increase your immune function by suppressing stress hormones and release endorphins which leads to a stronger and healthier immune system.
Floating increases the flow of blood to all areas of your body, reduces the force of gravity and helps accelerate the removal of lactic acid. This all leads to great muscular relaxation and quicker healing/recovery.
Magnesium is absorbed through the skin due to natural molecular diffusion. As our float tanks have a high level of Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) dissolved into the water it can eliminate magnesium defeciencies.
The relaxed state created through floating along with the improved blood flow allows the body to heal quicker and reduce swelling.
Ninety minutes of floating and extreme relaxation will actually feel like 6-8 hours of sleep in your body. The natural calming effect of floating will also help you sleep on your own better.
Floating reduce the force of gravity on your body and encourages blood flow to all extremities. This helps increase the range of movement in skeletal joints.
The incredible state of relaxation that floating creates floods the body with natural endorphins.
The constant bombardment of our high-tech and busy lives often leaves our body overloaded but floating allows your nervous system to have a break. While floating you can remove all of the chronic stressors and bring a much needed break to your body.
Floating allows you to remain completely awake while extremely relaxed, allowing you to achieve deeper meditation.
The relaxed state of floating also involves lowered blood pressure and maximum blood flow.
The float tank eliminates all distractions on your body and your mind, allowing you to focus much deeper. It also creates a unique state of awakeness that is extremely relaxing. The darkness during floating also induces a balance between the left and right brain.
The relaxation floating creates while remaining awake allows athletes and others to use visualization techniques on a better level.
While the body remains awake yet extremely relaxed your brain is able to hold in a theta state wave (normally only achieved while sleeping). This state couples with less distractions allows you to absorb new material deeply and think on an advanced level. Research has shown floating brings an improved performance in memory and recall activities.
