Here are the answers to the most frequently asked questions:
Floating has documented health benefits! These rooms each
have 10 inches of water and 1,000 pounds of dissolved
Epsom Salts! An Epsom salt soak has been a time-tested plan to
ease pain and relieve inflammation, making it beneficial in the treatment of
chronic back pain, sore muscles, edema, bronchial asthma, migraine
headaches, restless legs, diabetes, blood pressure, fibromyalgia and so much
Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate. Magnesium is important
to the enzyme activity in your body. More than half of all Americans have a
magnesium deficiency, which is believed to be a factor in many health
problems. Sulfate also plays an important role in your body. It contributes
to the formation of brain tissue, joint proteins and the wall strength of
the digestive tract. Epsom salt therapy helps restore magnesium and sulfate
in your system because they can both be absorbed through your skin. Your
skin will be glowing and feel silky soft after each session!
floating effortlessly in a peaceful space...
The stress of the day is far
away. Your mind is free to drift and tension easily melts away. While in the
float room, you will be completely relaxed, suspended in a dense water solution of pure
Epsom salt. This creates the effect of near zero gravity. Your body floats like
a cork on the surface of the water. Your entire body, including internal
organs, muscles and bones will be, for the first time, completely rested and at
ease. There is typically no light or sound during your float session. The air
and water are maintained at skin temperature and the water is soft and silky to
the touch. Free from the functions of interpreting and processing light, sound,
temperature, gravitational forces, the brain is able to expand into areas
ordinarily inaccessible except during deep meditation. Thus, stress is left
behind, healing takes place more rapidly, learning and creativity is enhanced. Feelings of profound peace are induced by the release of endorphins. After your float you’ll feel
positively refreshed, rejuvenated and calm, a feeling that can last for days.

Floating And Pregnancy
Pregnancy can be hard on your
body as you try to adapt to hormonal changes and extra weight. Balancing your
pregnancy with daily life; including your job and family, leaves little time to
care for yourself. Soothe your back in water that gives you complete support
and the feeling of weightlessness.
The float room is a wonderful
haven for pregnant women. If you have any concerns about the effects
of floating on your pregnancy, we ask you to consult, and get permission from,
your physician before you float.
Pregnant women find they can
totally relax in the float room, relieved from the burden of carrying the baby, due to
the gravity-free environment.
maintain the highest standards of water quality in our float rooms. Each room is
filled with 200 gallons of water and a 1000 pounds pharmaceutical grade
Epsom salt dissolved into it. That concentration of salt alone would be an
excellent sanitizer, but in addition to that, we use a powerful dose of
ultraviolet light, ozone, a daily treatment of non-chlorine, all natural shock
and a heavy duty filtering system. The entire system runs 24 hours a day.
There are no chemicals used in our float rooms. Maintaining a chemical free
environment, with sparkling clean water is our commitment to all of our clients.
The Science of Epsom Salt
Many Americans are magnesium
deficient. Doctors say it stems largely from the increasing prevalence of
processed foods in our diets. Today, 68 percent of U.S. adults consume less than
the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of magnesium, according to the Journal of
the American College of Nutrition, and 19 percent consume less than half of the
RDA. Epsom salt is made up of naturally occurring minerals magnesium and
sulfate, which can help improve health in numerous ways. A lack of
magnesium—which helps regulate the activity of more than 300 enzymes in the
body—can contribute to high blood pressure, hyperactivity, heart problems and
other health issues, doctors warn. Sulfate is essential for many biological
processes, helping to release toxins and helping form proteins in joints and brain
Researchers say that soaking
in an Epsom salt bath is a safe, easy way to increase the body's levels of both
magnesium and sulfate.
A very effective
stress reduction method.
Reduced sensory input (no
light, sound or touch) combined with the feeling of weightlessness allows the
mind to drift into a deeply peaceful state. People emerge from floating
amazingly calm, grounded and happy. This state of being will linger for a week
or longer. Floatation offers an environment in which to escape from
stressful external stimuli. But if that were all it did, floatation would be
essentially a passive experience, and entering the float room would be little
different from sitting quietly in a dark room.
Scientists have now proven
that floating activates a physiological response of ‘Rest & Digest’.
Through tests, including EMG (which measure muscle tension), EEG, blood
pressure, and measurements of certain biochemicals, scientists have determined
that floating can bring about a state of extraordinarily deep relaxation -
probably deeper than is possible by any other means yet available. Stress causes
harm by its disruption of our natural biochemistry. Cortisol has been proven to suppress the immune system. Tests have shown
that floating significantly decreases cortisol.
Medical Benefits of Floatation Therapy
Flotation therapy has a number of medical benefits. In the gravity free
floating environment the body balances and heals internally as all the senses
are rested. Research shows flotation therapy measurably reduces blood pressure
and heart rate while also
lowering the levels of stress related chemicals in the body. Old injuries
stress related pain experience immediate relief as floating helps blood
circulation and the re-absorption of stagnant fluid in inflamed areas. Float
Therapy also speeds the muscle
recovery time for athletes. Medical
research has documented the decrease in
chronic pain after floating!
The present philosophy of floatation therapy or restricted environmental
R.E.S.T., is to offer people a unique way of regaining aspects of
physical, emotional or psychological health. There are many schools of thought
at the present time in medicine and psychotherapy that are oriented to teach
people how to master their bodies and minds in order to achieve a state of
deep relaxation. This is essential in the very highly pressurized society of
the Western World. The need for deep relaxation has been validated by recent
research showing that up to 90% of people who visit a General Practitioner do
so because of a psychosomatic or stress related disorder.
The advantage of floatation therapy is that it enables most individuals to
experience very deep levels of relaxation immediately and without any special
training. The patient does not need to learn any special technique to trigger
the relaxation response. Other very useful methods like biofeedback,
self-hypnosis, progressive muscular relaxation or meditation generally need a
period of learning the specific technique, to be followed by a certain period
of time and practice to reach deep levels of relaxation, especially when the
patient practices on his own.
