Floating is a deep reset for your body and mind.
Originally developed in the 1950’s as a way to study consciousness and brain activity, floating has become a respected health practice. With benefits ranging from pain relief and stress reduction to improved focus and mental clarity, it’s no surprise that floating has attracted the interest of athletes, artists, meditators, and military personnel alike.
How does floating work?
The therapeutic benefits of floating are derived from reducing sensory stimulus on the body and mind. Logistically, this environment is created under very specific conditions:
- A light- and sound-proof float cabin reduces sensory input and distraction, freeing the mind and nervous system to recalibrate and expand.
- Water is heated to sensory neutral temperature (93.5 degrees F), softening focus on the body’s boundaries as well as patterns of tension and pain.
- Water is concentrated with 900 pounds of Epsom salt to promote effortless buoyancy for any body weight and size. This zero-gravity environment relieves pressure on muscles and joints and gives the body space to unwind.
