Exploring the Wonders of Floatation Therapy

Immerse yourself in the unique world of floatation therapy, a holistic approach to relaxation and revitalization, facilitated through sensory deprivation or isolation tanks. As you embark on a floatation therapy journey, you’re welcomed into a tranquil, hygienic, and secure environment, reducing external interruptions to a minimum. Diving into the mechanics of a floatation tank:

  • Our specially curated floatation tanks are filled with a 30% Epsom salt solution, allowing you to float seamlessly, rendering gravity irrelevant. The solution and the air inside the tank are maintained at your body temperature, thereby minimizing sensory disruptions. The tank features a light that can be switched off to decrease visual stimuli. The float room is designed to be soundproof, reducing auditory distractions. The result? Zero gravity. No light. No sound. Complete tranquillity. 

Your float room experience includes:

  • A shower facility for a pre-float cleanse and a post-float salt rinse.
  • Earplugs, as your ears will be submerged during the float.
  • A buoyant noodle for enhanced neck comfort.
  • A fresh water spray bottle for removing any salt from your face.  

From athletes seeking muscle recovery to biohackers and individuals battling mental health issues or chronic illnesses like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, the transformative benefits of regular floatation therapy are being increasingly recognized.

Unravelling the Floatation Therapy Experience: Our brains typically expend a significant amount of energy managing gravity and incessant external stimuli.

Our floatation tanks aim to minimize this constant sensory input, limiting environmental distractions and allowing your musculoskeletal and nervous systems to unwind.

One remarkable aspect of floatation is its ability to foster a theta state, akin to a dream-like condition. This state, linked to deep learning and imaginative processes, is generally achieved only during sleep or profound meditation, yet the float tank helps you reach it with ease. Throughout your float, you remain in this near-sleep stage of consciousness, fostering mental exploration.

The sensory relaxation achieved during a float session serves as a potent therapeutic instrument. The plethora of cognitive and physical benefits of floatation rest includes:

Stress and anxiety alleviation Pain and ache mitigation Sleep quality improvement Enhancement of focus and creativity Support for workout recovery and injury healing Deepening of meditation Promotion of better blood flow Normalization of blood pressure Slowing of breath and heart rate Increase in dopamine and endorphin levels In light of these multifaceted benefits and the subsequent energy boost, floaters frequently report feelings of immediate elation and relaxation.

For individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia, floatation therapy can provide significant relief by reducing physical discomfort, improving sleep, and decreasing anxiety and stress levels. Its natural pain-relieving properties make it an excellent non-pharmacological option to manage these conditions.

For athletes and those with muscle injuries, floatation therapy can enhance recovery. The high concentration of Epsom salt helps alleviate muscle tension and inflammation, and facilitates faster healing of soft tissue injuries. It can also help reduce lactic acid build-up, which is often a by-product of intense training, thereby minimizing post-workout soreness.

The Epsom salt solution alone delivers myriad therapeutic benefits. It’s a rich source of magnesium sulphate, the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. Adequate magnesium can improve sleep quality, act as a natural skin exfoliator, and even contribute to hair volume.

Recommendations for Floatation Frequency:

  • For the best results, consistency is key.
