We live in a world driven by technology. Look around you, and you’ll find that most people are glued to their screens. If you’re reading this, you’re using one right now. While technology has opened a world of wonderful possibilities, it also has a dark side. The kind of light emitted from screens messes with our circadian rhythm, which in turn can promote stress, obesity, even diabetes and high blood pressure.
We could all use a reprieve from the constant hum of technology-driven activity. That’s why float therapy has recently emerged as a popular option from controlling our daily sensory overload. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, regular floating promotes relaxation, clears the mind, and reenergizes the body. Even if it seems out of your comfort zone, here’s why everyone should try a float session at least once:
Discover Your Individual Experience
Everyone experiences sensory deprivation differently. When your brain lacks input, it creates its own. For some people, sensory deprivation boosts creative thoughts, while others claim that their brains start to create patterns, even musical beats. Still others report falling asleep during their float and waking up feeling totally relaxed. No matter how you experience it, floating will provide mind-boosting benefits that will benefit you for weeks to come.
Reap the Benefits of Epsom Salt
We fill each of our float tanks with 950 pounds of magnesium sulfate, better known as epsom salt. This naturally occurring mineral has been used throughout the centuries for its body-enhancing benefits: Athletes still use it to calm sore muscles, for example. But the benefits don’t stop there: Magnesium sulfate exfoliates your skin, removes built-up residue in your hair, and reveals a glowing appearance. Its stress-relieving properties also help relieve symptoms of diseases of the immune system – for example, eczema, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Take Your First Steps
Floating is a practice. It’s usually by the second and third floats that you’ll experience the full array of benefits for your mind and body. The first float is more of an introduction where your body will get acclimated to the environment. A positive experience with your first float will prepare you for more and better floatation experiences in the future.
