how_flotation_worksFloaters are often amused by people who ask them, "but isin't floating boring? I mean just floating around in a tank with nothing happening?"

Indeed floating is where everything happens!

When you place yourself in the large warm float bath, your stresses, your worries, your pain, your fatigue disappear and what occurs is peace, harmony, balance, and freedom.

This is what we know as the state of float.

About Process


floatationTHE FLOAT TANK

The float tank is a large bath of near body temperature 35.5 C, warm water containing a highly concentrated and dense salt solution (epsom salt - magnesium sulphate) to increase buoyancy, this allows you to float effortlessly.

The silence safety and warmth of the environment is naturally conducive to relaxation and peace of mind. Released to float in suspension without the body experiencing the effects of gravity and outside distractions, your entire being achieves levels of rest much deeper than you have ever previously experienced.

One hour of floating is equivalent to 6 hours sleep.

Why 3 Introductory Floats


floatationWHY WE RECOMMEND A 3 FLOAT INTRODUCTORY COURSE

Flotation is a highly individual and personal experience, the experience provokes/evokes unique individual experiential sensations of physical, physiological and psychological nature as ones body deepens to the experience of NOT working to keep us safe and together (i.e. moving into the state of relaxation).

Therefore each float may evoke different sensations according to our ‘state of being' in the present moment.

One float may produce euphoria another, deep relaxation and sleep.

Being a new experience the initial or first float will naturally expose a personal sense of expectation. Then new awareness to old fatigue, retained stress, aches, and twitches as one's body and mind slows and relaxes enough to allow us to become aware of and experience the tension which we unconsciously hold there in , neck, shoulders, chest, lower back, torso, hips, knees, feet.

Many aspects contribute to this escalating pressure such as psychological, emotional, financial, career, relationships, community and political concerns. Now more than ever, these pressures are further increased by the volume and speed with which information is being transmitted to us all.

Benefits of Epsom Salts


benefits of epsom saltsRecent research in Birmingham University, at the School of Biosciences has shown an amazing result. Magnesium and sulphate will pass through the skin, raising the levels detected in the blood. This can have important benefits to health because both Magnesium and Sulphate deficiency are common.

Magnesium is found in vegetables and grains, derived from the ground in which they are grown. However many soils are magnesium deficient either naturally or through over cropping. Magnesium is also found in sea water. It is essential to life and deficiency is linked to many diseases including cardiovascular disease. See: www.mgwater.com

Flotation Therapy Benefits


floatation_therapy_benefitsFloatation therapy is such a simple idea that some of the benefits seem too good to be true. But they are real and scientific research has validated the health giving and performance enhancing effects.

It is well known that relaxing sleep in bed is essential to good health and often the best way to recover from stress and illness. Our bodies have amazing powers of recuperation and we just need the chance to relax to let these powers work.

Floating in a flotation therapy tank is even more relaxing. The deep relaxation state achieved allows the body to recover from stress. Pain is relieved. Blood flow is stimulated through all the tissues, natural endorphins are released, the brain gives out alpha waves associated with relaxation and meditation. It feels good.

Medical Uses for Floatation Therapy

CEng director Floataway

What is Floatation therapy?
One or more sessions of floatation, usually for sixty minutes, in a purpose built float tank containing Epsom salt solution at 35.4 degrees Celsius. The solution's relative density is 1.25 making it impossible not to float, usually supine (except for pregnant women see below).

The temperature is correct for maintaining body temperature without muscular action and there is no postural requirement either, so a profound state of relaxation is achieved within 15 to 20 minutes. Endorphins are released encouraging a feeling of well being. Blood flow in capillaries and soft tissue is maximised. Muscles in spasm tend to release. Because there is no contact pressure it is possible to float for many hours without any impulse to turn, even in deep sleep. Floatation has been academically studied extensively since about 1975, particularly in America, and currently in Sweden, (see below).

A relaxing way to stay afloat


a relaxing way to stay afloat

CASS MEGRAW
Cumberland Courier

I OFTEN complain that there aren't enough hours in my day. It seems that other people get more done than I do. They read more books and turn up to work with perfect hair
after having caught up with a friend for breakfast, when I feel like I have rolled out of bed and hit the floor running, forgetting practically everything I need. So naturally, being in this almost constantly frazzled state, I need a little more than a glass of wine and an early night to help me relax.

The elation of floatation therapy

 

By Simon Edds

 

elation of flotation therapy

Woman floating in water, Weeki Wachee spring, Florida.

 

It sounds like the opening line of a traveling medicine man's big sell: "In just one hour, the debilitating symptoms of your anxiety, insomnia,depression, stress and even jet lag can be greatly improved!"

Hordes of eager customers gather round, hands raised in the air, each stuffed full of cash, wanting to buy this mystery man's mystery tonic.


As implausible as this sounds, such a remedy may be closer than you might expect.
Lotions and potions might not be the answer if you are suffering from one (or all) of the above-listed chronic illnesses, but there is one invention that stands a good chance of helping you feel better, inside and out – and far from being the new kid on the block, it's celebrating its 60th anniversary next year.
