Float Therapy

Reverse the physical effects of gravity
and the psychological effects of sensory overload

Reverse the physical effects of gravity

When we think of gravity, we think of astronauts in outer space, but the reality is that each and every one of us are affected by gravity on a day-to-day basis.

As we walk, run or simply stand, gravitational pressure is exerted onto our feet as they bear the weight of our entire body and our upright posture leads to physical stress and structural problems in other comparatively weak areas of our body like our knees and hip joints, lower back, neck and abdomen.

These effects from gravitational pressure force our body to compensate for the strain by adopting rigid postures, resulting in pain, chronic muscular tension and tension related problems such as shallow breathing, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and ulcers. Floating in our tanks creates the ideal environment for your body to be suspended in zero gravity, removing the gravitational pressure from your joints, muscles and physical body.

Reverse the psychological effects of sensory overload

With information and technology now so readily available at the tips of our fingers, our lives revolve around our computer and phone screens. This constant stream of sensory stimulation is preventing our mind and body from achieving our natural state of relaxation and restoration.

While floating in zero gravity, with the majority of your sensory stimulation restricted, your nervous system resets and your mind enters into a deep state of relaxation and healing. Regular Float Therapy has been proven to increase the quality of life in people who are managing ADHD, Autism and other sensory processing challenges.

Biochemical Advantages of Floating

Stress-related issues such as irritability, poor sleep quality, anxiety, depression, PTSD, heart disease, and decreased immune function can be improved or resolved with regular float therapy. Floating can decrease the levels of stress hormones such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine, that are produced in your body, and stimulate the production of our bodies’ own feel-good, pain killer “endorphins”. The release of endorphins following your regular Float sessions can last for up to a week.

Balance Magnesium Deficiencies

Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, yet most people are magnesium deficient. Magnesium deficiency symptoms include muscle cramps and spasms, restless legs, anxiety, sleep issues, constipation, high blood pressure, headaches and migraines. Unless you have optimal “gut health”, oral magnesium supplements cannot be absorbed efficiently. It is recommended that the optimal method of re-balancing our magnesium deficiencies is through our body’s largest organ – our skin. Soaking in our float tank for 60 minutes, on a regular basis, will keep your magnesium levels balanced. But don’t worry; you can’t float too much, as your skin will only absorb what it needs.
