What is Floating ? Here is some info for the Newcomers on our page .

When we heard about Something called floating we decided to give it a try , especially that Silke just had Back Surgery and still had to deal with quite some pain. Floating is actually an old idea called sensory deprivation, but with a new name and optimized for several health benefits.

What is Floating?

As you may have gathered by the name, it involves floating in a pod or room that is designed for short term sensory deprivation. This is typically done within a large tank of super-saturated magnesium water ( Epsom Salt ) that makes you completely buoyant.

Float tanks are also called Isolation tanks or Sensory Deprivation Tanks. While they sound like something out of an old-school war movie, they have recently gained popularity among elite athletes, those who struggle with stress, and people with various health problems.

On a practical level, floating is typically done for 90 minutes or more in body-temperature salt water in a room devoid of light and sound.

Why is Floating Beneficial?

The basic concept is that floating reduces external stimuli as much as possible to help the body achieve a natural restorative state. Some people compare the experience of floating to meditation or yoga.

Tanks specifically designed for sensory deprivation or floating were created in the 1950s but gained popularity in the 1970s when it became known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (or REST). Dr. John Lilly, a neuroscientist who worked for the National Institutes of Health and specialized in cognition and brain activity helped pioneer the research during this time.

Since then, floating has been used for a variety of reasons, both anecdotal and scientifically backed:

Stress reduction
Anxiety relief
Sports recovery
Pain relief
To promote relaxation
Reduce headaches
Increased circulation
For more restful sleep
To learn to meditate
For moms craving a little quiet time
PTSD

For people with some health issues it is recommended to consult your healthcare professional before you decide to float in a huge amount of Epsom salt.
At the end Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate which people with health issues could have different reactions to.

Hello everyone!
We are so anxious to get you all floating.
Unfortunately this takes more time than we thought.
We received an email today that the Department we are waiting to get some approvals is running short with their staff and they apologized for the delay.
It is important to us to open the Float Center quickly but sometimes we all just need to be patient.
It will happen though!
Just follow our page for updates and more info!
