What effects does floating have on the body?
Unlike simply floating in a pool, float therapy in a float tank is a wonderful way of attaining the deepest relaxation – it has been said that just one hour of floating can have the restorative effect of four hours of deep sleep.
Floating is a great way of attaining the deepest sense of stillness and relaxation. One hour of floating has the same restorative effects of four hours of deep REM sleep.
The body balances and heals internally as all the senses are resting in a gravity-free environment! Research has shown that floating reduces blood pressure and heart rate while lowering the levels of stress-related chemicals in your body, how cool is that?
All types of aches and pains, especially in the spine, are relieved as floating helps to circulate blood more freely throughout the body.
Did you know that epsom salt (aka magnesium sulfate) has been used for thousands of years as a treatment for aches, pain and skill ailments? Pools do not carry this important component and therefore the stress relieving benefits are few to none in typical pools.
Magnesium sulfate is incredibly healing and vital to health and wellbeing. Most people have a deficiency in this mineral that is used in over 300 enzymatic functions.
It is also necessary for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system. Supplementation through the skin while floating is the best way to absorb magnesium due to the large amount of magnesium sulfate dissolved in the water.
Not only that, but the float tank offers a sense of relaxation.
As you’re completely isolated, you’re given the ultimate ‘me time’.
You are in total isolation, with nothing to see, hear, or feel. In this state your conscious mind will switch off and your brain will easily reach the ‘Alpha State’ (relaxed, calm, lucid, not thinking).
Research has shown that some experienced floatees have had their brainwaves measured while floating and it was found that they had reached the ‘Theta State’, a very deep state of relaxation, similar to those a Tibetan Monk trains for years to achieve.
At Heal. in Altamonte Springs we aspire to bring the Central Florida community complete relaxation.
Not only through massage, dry salt therapy and yoga.. but with float therapy as well!
