There are plenty of outlets we have when we feel stressed. Some people listen to relaxing music, some color, others may go to a massage or do yoga. Regardless of their chosen method of relaxing, there always seems to be something that’s still distracting.
You could be interrupted by members of your family if you’re trying to relax at home, and yoga classes involve other people and instructors; even a massage requires another person to be there. Trying to get away involves even more stress!
Instead of trying to relax among other people and additional distractions, why not try something that lets you truly get away? Why not try flotation therapy?
What is Flotation Therapy
Flotation therapy, sometimes called sensory deprivation therapy, involves only 3 things: yourself, a pod, and relaxing water. Each one of our pods is filled with water which has been diluted with Epsom salt, causing the water to be extremely dense. The denseness allows you to float on top of the water without holding your breath or swimming.
When the pod door is closed, it shuts out all light, and almost all sound; leaving you to relax in peace and quiet. The Epsom salt relaxes you even more as you lightly float in skin-temperature water. The result is a peaceful experience like none other.
How Does Flotation Therapy Work?
Everything about flotation therapy is designed to put you at ease. The warm-but-not-hot water and the epsom salt work together to relax your strained muscles, the lid of the pod shuts out both light and sound, and the gentle floating motion allows the body to release the tension used to hold it up during the day.
What are the Results?
The result of flotation therapy is a truly relaxing experience. You’re able to truly let go of your stresses and relax in total darkness and silence. Some patients have described the feeling of flotation therapy as better than a full night’s sleep in terms of relaxation and reinvigoration.
What Else is Flotation Therapy Good For?
Flotation therapy is perfect for relaxation, but it has other therapeutic properties as well. Other popular uses for floatation therapy are:
- Pain reduction
- And more
