How floating works
When you float you are stepping into a quiet, warm, private cocoon called the dream pod where you lay back on a water solution of 500 kilograms of Epsom salts dissolved in 800 liters of water. The water is so dense that now you will float like a cork completely buoyant.
The water is kept constantly at skin temperature, which means very soon you will not be able to differentiate between your skin and the water. Relax and for the first time feel what it is like when none of your pressure points in your body have any weight on them. You will be fully supported meaning you will expend no physical energy to maintain your position in the water no matter what your weight might be.
When the sound of the music and the lights switch off inside (this is optional) you will relax and rest your mind in a state of relaxation which you most likely will have never experienced until this point.
The pods are designed to shut out the sound around, and before you know it you are in your own isolated cocoon often referred to as being back in the womb.
Imagine 60 minutes with yourself when you shut the rest of the world out. Mindfulness will lead many clients to the theta state of mind, and you can stop and focus on all those things you want to isolated and fix without disturbance.
When you emerge, you should feel refreshed and senses sharpened with a new awareness of the world around you.
Floating is not a new age fad. It was developed by a medical doctor almost 60 years ago and has undergone rigorous medical studies that have been peer reviewed and published in medical journals.
Often people are surprised to learn how much actual scientific research has been done on floatation.
All the benefits we talk about on this site are taken from over 200 research articles containing both lab experiments and case studies published between the 1960′s and today.
One thing we can share with you about floating is that almost every benefit we have mentioned has a several day effect after the float and the more you float – the better it gets!
The more often the float pod is used, the stronger the effects become, the longer they last and the more efficient the person gets at attaining the benefits every single time they float.
Floating is an effortless way to increase a happy lifestyle.
