BENEFITS OF FLOATING

WHY FLOAT?

Float therapy has application for the bodies of athletes and office warriors alike. It
speeds the recovery of muscles and joints after training sessions but also allows your to
tap into heightened levels of focus and creative problem solving. This therapy works on
both the body and the mind to improve your overall well-being.

BODY

This type of therapy works to ease the pain of sore muscles and joints after a tough
workout or restore posturalalignment after a long work week. Known as an aid to reduce
headaches, improve sleep, and release endorphins, floating also reduces cravings,
making a healthy weight management goal more easily attainable.Improved circulation
to each of the body’s systems, including the skin, is another benefit that leaves you with
a radiant, post-float “glow.”

MIND

During a float the mind downshifts into a unique state of relaxation that was once only
available to lifelong meditators. With our Floatation therapy in Ardmore, even a first-time
floater can enjoy neurological harmony. You can explore a state of “super learning,”
where your fully relaxed and undistracted mind can make deep, new neural
connections.

FLOAT BENEFITS

Anyone can benefit from incorporating floating into their wellness routine. Float therapy
simulates a zero-gravity effect by dissolving Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) into a
shallow tank filled with less than a foot of water. This dense salt water solution helps
you to float effortlessly, with your face exposed above the water. During your float, the
water temperature holds steady and the salt water won’t prune your skin. As you float,
your brain waves slow into Theta frequencies, a state of tranquility, creativity and
extreme relaxation. Epsom salts help to relieve inflammation and pain, and work to
regulate electrolytes in your body, ensuring proper functioning of the muscles, nerves,
and enzymes. Just like diet and exercise, floating works best when incorporated as part
of your regular wellness routine; the effects are cumulative. To maximize the long-term
health benefits of floating, we recommend floating once a week.
