Benefits for the Body, Mind, & Soul
Floatation therapy allows you to vastly conserve and abundantly redirect your natural energy to help stress reduction, pain relief, or to aid deeper states of rest and meditation helping to relax, rejuvenate, and heal your body, mind, and soul.
Floatation suppresses the functioning of the sympathetic nervous system which produces our fight or flight response. It also activates the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for relaxation, healing, replenishment, and rejuvenation. Physical symptoms of the relaxation response include decreased muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, decreased stress hormones, and increased endorphins.
Regular floating can make individuals more resistant to chronic stressors present in modern urban settings and lifestyles.
Floatation can help relieve symptoms of arthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, fibromyalgia, bursitis, inflammation, and psychosomatic pain.
Floating is a unique tool to aid in meditation. It often generates a sensation of being intensely aware and awake yet deeply tranquil and blissful. Through meditation we gain abundant energy.
Regular pod use strengthens the immune, digestive, and reproductive systems by suppressing stress hormones.
Regular floating considerably reduces cortisol. Cortisol is the “stress hormone” typically released in response to events and situations such as early waking, excessive exercising, poor diet, and acute stress from modern lifestyles.
Floating increases circulation to extremities and decreases the force of gravity to help promote greater muscular relaxation.
Floating decreases chronic muscle tension and creates greater awareness of imbalance and muscle tension.
The extremely high concentration of Epsom salts are absorbed through the skin, adding magnesium, which is a mineral known to be deficient in the general population’s diet. Magnesium can prevent cardiovascular disease, regulate high blood pressure, prevent osteoporosis, relieve menopause symptoms, provide PMS relief, build healthier bones and teeth, and is involved with detoxification.
Although floating is not zero-gravity (like outer space), the density of the Epsom Salt solution does create the maximal amount of the force of gravity to be dispersed across the greatest surface area of the body. Rigid postures and chronic muscular tension from daily life can cause ailments such as lower-back pain, neck pain, shallow breathing, and high blood pressure. The anti-gravity environment of the float pod disperses forces to the smallest amount and thus decreases the source of gravity-related stimulation to the minimum possible value providing relief to these specific areas.
Floating has been proven to improve sight, hearing, and taste sensitivities.
Living in a city with a constant buzz or hum, our systems rarely experience the isolation and true silence that the float pod environment provides. The pod eliminates as much external stimuli as possible, allowing our nervous system to have a break, which can be uplifting and revitalizing.
Many habitual patterns exist throughout our lives. Daily routines make us “numb” to so much happening within and around us. The mental resetting experience provided by the pod can shift us out of this automated existence and help one to become more present.
Floating can decrease anxiety and depression, helping to increase a sense of calm and well-being. The relaxation induced by the pod has been linked to anti-smoking assistance and addiction recovery, as well as weight loss.
Research has shown greater communication between the right (creative) and left (analytical) sides of the brain. Synchronization can cause elevated states of creativity, greater non-linear connections, and deeper realizations.
The combination of being extremely relaxed while intensely awake allows techniques of visualization to become very powerful. From athletes preparing for competition to public speakers, teachers, and students rehearsing a presentation, the pod can induce the calm, focused state necessary to perform at one’s best. Mental rehearsal research has shown it to be just as practical as physical rehearsal.
This is a multi-disciplinary approach to how well our immune system functions based on our state of mind. It correlates having a positive healthy state of mind with a well-functioning immune system. Research has even shown how focusing on an injury or diseased area of the body with positive feelings and healing intentions has improved recovery rates from various ailments.
Introverts who float can gain a feeling of safety and security, giving them a break from hyper-sensitivity to various stimuli. Extroverts can develop greater sensitivity from floating, since minimal input is coming in, they are able to more effectively connect to their internal reality.
Many people report drastically improved sleeping abilities from regular floatation. Ninety minutes in the pod can feel like 6-8 hours of sleep. Whether you pulled an all-nighter, suffer from insomnia, or have a newborn baby, floating can help make up for a lack of sleep.
