Floating allows the body to reach a deep relaxation state which allows the entire body to recover from stress. Pain is also relieved by floating. Blood flow is stimulated through all the tissues, natural endorphins are released and the brain is able to send out alpha waves associated with relaxation. Floating gives the body and mind a break from constant stimulation that is experienced every day by allowing sensory deprivation. Sensory deprivation is a technique by which sensory input (sound, light, etc.) is minimized. This relaxation technique produces significant physical and mental benefits.
Health and Beauty:
Because the float pod is full of Epsom salt and water, the hair and skin feel cleansed and refreshed after floating resulting in improved skin health and decreased blemishes and damage to the skin. Epsom salt is Magnesium Sulfate which is very beneficial to skin. Magnesium also helps balance calcium levels, balance hormones, normalize blood pressure, reduce risk of cancer and other diseases and reduce stress.
