Let’s Talk About Floating!
Float therapy, also known as flotation therapy, sensory deprivation or Restricted Stimulation Therapy (R.E.S.T.) is an extremely relaxing treatment where the body floats in a solution of medical grade magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt) and water. Since the depth of the water is around 10″ deep and contains around 1,000 pounds of salt the body becomes extremely buoyant causing effortless floating.
This anti-gravity type of environment removes the effects of gravity on bones, joints and muscles creating a soothing and deeply relaxing environment while magnesium in the salts assist with pain relief and encourage restful sleep. The temperature of the water and lack of sound and light create an absence of sensation that is conducive to deep relaxation and meditation.
While floating is great for relieving the effects of stress, pain, injury and strenuous exercise it is also a great tool for enhancing clarity of thought. In today’s fast-paced environment it is quickly becoming a favorite choice to escape a busy mind and achieve mental calmness. Studies are currently being conducted at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research, which show floating is beneficial to mental health and can be successful treating PTSD, addiction, social anxiety and similar disorders.
