WHAT IS FLOATING?
Over 900lbs of Epsom salts are added to our pods to create a zero-gravity simulation which comes with beneficial properties for both your body and mind. Magnesium and sulfates which are found naturally occurring in Epsom salts, help in reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and also help absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches. Being in a zero-gravity environment allows your body to feel weightless therefore muscles and joints to start to completely relax and your body is better able to repair itself.
Over recent years, multiple studies have shown floating has significant positive effects on those suffering from anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, addictions, and other physiological issues. With technology around every corner, modern society creates an environment in which external stimuli cannot be avoided. Inside the pods, where all sound, light, and stimulation is removed, your brain is better able to slow down and process thoughts effortlessly. The effects after a float will be a clear mind, self awareness, and increased relaxation.
