What is Floating?
The Float Pod creates an environment that cannot be found anywhere else on earth. During your session you are floating effortlessly in 1200Lbs. of epsom salt dissolved into 11-inch of skin temperature water within a lightproof and soundproof environment. Gravity and sensory input are almost completely eliminated creating the ideal environment, for profound relaxation, healing and insight.
Gravity, which has been estimated to occupy 90 percent of all central nervous system activity, is essentially eliminated. By freeing our brain and skeletal system from gravity, floating liberates large areas of the brain and thus, allows more central nervous system activity to be available, creating the perfect brain and body state for enhanced relaxation, healing and creative thought.
Water temperature is maintained at skin temperature and after a few minutes you lose the awareness of where the body ends and the water begins. After resting in this unique environment many arthritis and fibromyalgia sufferers claim this to be the greatest form of pain relief they have ever found.
Scientifically validated benefits include decreases in muscle tension, blood pressure and stress hormones, while at the same time the brain pumps out high levels of endorphins (our feel good hormones).
After you feel the effects of your first float you may wonder how something so simple can have such a profound effect on your overall well-being. However, the benefits of floating are backed by over thirty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance.
