What is Floating?
Flotation REST is a method used to enhance physical and mental wellness, provide relaxation, and enhance sleep. The most beneficial effects, are reported by people who engage in regular use. Since pain, tension and stress are accumulated over time, it may take some time to enjoy the full relief provided from floating as the benefits build on subsequent float sessions.
Floating is effortless, which allows your mind and body will continue to learn how to relax in each float session. Float Effects encourages our clients to return for subsequent regular sessions to continue gain and maintain floating benefits.
Unplug and Renew with Three Elements of Floating
The 1000 pounds of Epsom Salt in the float pod's 10 inches of water creates a salt solution that allows for effortless buoyancy. In an anti-gravity, reduced stimulation environment, relaxing of tense muscles sometimes results in falling asleep. Pain relief is a commonly described benefit from floating weightless because there are no pressure points activated on the body.
Epsom Salts provide many physical benefits. They act as a skin exfoliate and are great for your hair and nails. Epsom Salts also aid in stress relief, easing joint pain, and relax the body naturally by treating inflammation in sore muscles.
In as little as one hour, your body will likely experience a decrease in the stress hormone, Cortisol, leaving you with a sense of serenity and reduced stress. Some find achieving true meditative states time-consuming and difficult due to distractions. Floating allows you to enter a meditative state quickly by drastically reducing nearly all physical and external stimulation to the brain. During the float session, your brain may enter into a theta-brain wave state which is associated with dreaming and deep sleep states.
