What can floating do for your physical and mental well-being?
Benefits of floating
Floating is an important tool for self-development, wellness, healing and meditation. A person floats in a tank of water, that is so rich in epsom salts, that they feel completely weightless. The experience takes place in a soundproof room in our specially-designed floatation tank, where water and air temperature match the body perfectly.
The aim is to eliminate all external stimuli during your float. By removing sound, vision and gravity, the body and mind get a true break from the outside world. Floating gives you the space to create inner peace, reconnect with yourself and build deeper contact with your consciousness.
Relaxation & meditation
The unique and calm environment in our float tanks creates an outstanding space for focused, undisturbed meditation. Meditation and deep relaxation improves both your mental and physical strength and health.
The Epsom salt (Magnesium sulfat) in our tanks are an important factor when talking about muscles and nerves in our body. The nourishing Epsom salt helps cleanse your body of toxins as well as relive muscle tensions.
Floating makes your mind and body relax very deeply, leading you to a dream-like state. Regular floating will most likely have a positive impact on your sleeping patterns.
When stressed, the body automatically reduces its’ magnesium levels while simultaneously increasing stress hormones. Floating in Epsom salt filled water will help you get your regular level of magnesium back on track. Also, the undisturbed environment will help your body and brain relax – giving yourself a true break from the daily humdrum.
Several studies have proven how floatation therapy have positive impacts and enhances our cognitive powers, why our creativity is improved when floating regularly.
Strengthened immune system
When in a relaxed and stress-free stage, the body is able to make optimal use of the energy on the important defense mechanisms that help keep you healthy and well.
Helps to battle depression
Floating therapy triggers a deep form of relaxation in the mind by eliminating all sensory impressions. When all stimuli are reduced, the brain has room to find peace and control the thought process.
