WHAT IS FLOATING?
The video above explains exactly what it is and how it works
but long story short.....
Floatation therapy, aka sensory deprivation involves floating in a buoyant solution of warm water and fine grade magnesium Epsom salt in a specially designed tank or pod. The high salt concentration allows you to effortlessly float on the surface. The tank is light proof and sound proof and minimizes sensory input, providing a complete relaxation and meditation experience.
What Are The Benefits?
Some of the Key Benefits of Floatation Therapy Are:
Stress Relief: The sensory deprivation and relaxation experienced during floatation therapy helps reduce stress, anxiety, and promotes relaxation.
Pain Relief: Some people use floatation therapy to alleviate chronic pain conditions, as the buoyant environment can relieve pressure on joints and muscles.
Enhanced Creativity and Mental Clarity: Floatation therapy enhances creativity, improves mental clarity, and increases problem-solving abilities by providing a distraction-free environment for deep thought.
Improved Sleep: Regular floatation sessions leads to improved sleep quality and help with insomnia.
Muscle Recovery: Athletes often use floatation therapy for muscle recovery and relaxation after intense workouts or competitions.
Mind-Body Connection: It helps individuals develop a stronger mind-body connection and improves mindfulness practices.
AKA THE MASTER MINERAL
Why is this important?
Magnesium supports over 600 functions in the human body and we are naturally deficient. Floatation Therapy is the best way to give your body the magnesium it needs.
Muscle Function: Magnesium is necessary for muscle contraction and relaxation. It helps prevent muscle cramps and spasms.
Nervous System Function: It plays a role in nerve function and helps regulate neurotransmitters, which are important for communication between nerve cells.
Energy Production: Magnesium is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions involved in energy production. It is essential for the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body's primary source of energy.
Bone Health: Magnesium is a key component of bone tissue and helps maintain bone density. It works in conjunction with calcium and vitamin D to support bone health.
Heart Health: It plays a role in maintaining a regular heartbeat and can help regulate blood pressure. Adequate magnesium intake may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Blood Sugar Regulation: Magnesium helps regulate blood sugar levels by influencing insulin function. It is important for individuals with diabetes.
DNA and RNA Synthesis: Magnesium is involved in the synthesis of DNA and RNA, the genetic material of cells.
Immune System Support: It contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system and can help the body fight infections.
Relaxation and Stress Management: Magnesium has a calming effect on the nervous system and may help reduce stress and anxiety.
Digestive Health: It is involved in muscle contractions of the digestive tract and can help prevent constipation.
Electrolyte Balance: Magnesium is one of the essential electrolytes in the body, along with sodium, potassium, and calcium. It helps maintain the body's fluid balance.
Protein Synthesis: Magnesium is required for the synthesis of proteins, which are essential for the growth and repair of tissues.
How Often Should You Float?
It depends on why your floating...
If you are floating for any of the reasons above, we recommend 3-6 sessions to start, as the positive effects of Floatation Therapy become longer lasting the more you float.
For maximum results we recommend more frequent sessions, on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to how often you should float, and it's essential to consider your goals and how your body
responds to the therapy.

FREQUENTLY ASKED ?
WHAT IF I’M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
Our cabins are 8 ft. long, 4.5 ft. wide, and 6.5 ft. tall. You’re always in control of your environment. Even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems. The tank’s door never locks, so you can always open and close it, or get out at anytime. Controls for lights are in the cabin while you float; you are in control.
IS FLOATATION THERAPY SAFE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN?
Floatation therapy can be safe for pregnant women, but it's important to consult with a healthcare provider before trying it. Some healthcare providers recommend avoiding floatation therapy during the first trimester of pregnancy due to the increased risk of nausea and dizziness associated with early pregnancy. However, many pregnant women are able to safely enjoy floatation therapy during later stages of pregnancy, with the approval of their healthcare provider. It's important to inform the staff at the float centre of your pregnancy and any associated health concerns, and to follow any guidelines or restrictions provided by your healthcare provider.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank. You can also bring your own towels. We provide everything else you may need (robes, earplugs, body wash/shampoo, blow dryer, etc.)
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
No. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.
