FLOAT, REST, REPEAT, in Perpetuity 😉
For many, Floating is a way of life. Regulars of float therapy consider themselves a part of a very elite club, those who float “get it” – they get what floating contributes to their body, their mind, and their spirit. Here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa in Boise, we use Float Therapy as a mineral bath to soothe the body, readying it for massage or facial, or solo, as a meditation of sorts. Flotation Therapy has many benefits, but what’s it like?
Imagine floating effortlessly in approximately 250 gallons of water and 1,200 pounds of Epsom salt; the water maintained at skin temperature and the tanks are light proof and soundproof inside. With most sensory input eliminated and your body free from gravity, you can easily experience the benefits of floatation therapy, including deep relaxation and meditation. SIGN ME UP! But also, as it turns out, in addition to providing minutes of elevated relaxation, making you feel in a state of bliss, it has some big health benefits, too.
A powerful way to replenish our bodies, floatation therapy is a simple, effective way to invest in your health, happiness and well-being. Are you wondering what floating can do for you? Check out the physical, intellectual and spiritual benefits of float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation, below and how it can help you feel better, think better, and live better.
BENEFIT 1: Improve Your Sleep
While the benefits of floatation therapy can differ from person-to-person or from float-to-float depending on the individual, many people report remarkably improved sleep, deeper rest, along with notable relief from fatigue, beginning with the very first float. In addition, a regular floating practice can help you sleep even better and boost energy levels.
BENEFIT 2: Arthritis + Joint Pain Relief & Muscle Recovery
Float tanks offer the perfect combination of two natural therapeutic treatments for joint stiffness: Epsom salts and relief from gravity. Many floaters who suffer from arthritis have found that taking pressure off the joints while floating can help alleviate stiffness associated with arthritis and have found significant relief from arthritic pain. In addition to reducing inflammation and alleviating stiffness, the Epsom salts used in float tanks, high in healing magnesium, are also known to relieve joint pain. Did you know that in many cases our pain comes from inflammation of muscles? The healing properties of Epsom salts used in floating help relax and soothe sore muscles, reduce swelling, ease pain, and even boost muscle recovery.
BENEFIT 3: Reduce Stress, Anxiety, & Cortisol Levels
While floatation therapy combines the soothing elements of water with meditation, promoting overall well-being, experts are finding that the healing therapy of salt tanks can also help ease anxiety and reduce levels of stress hormones such as cortisol. Float therapy is particularly effective because it not only reduces stress in individuals by removing outside stimuli, but also repairs and reverses the negative effects stress has on the body, helping you achieve a deeper state of relaxation, while connecting body, mind and soul, in a way not easily achieved by other forms of stress therapy.
BENEFIT 4: Time away from your family (ok, maybe that’s just me)
Self care isn’t easy to fit into the busy days and evenings, but a time away from the hectic day to day events of our lives can pay itself forward incredibly. Nobody is asking me for anything, I get to relax, solo…in Perpetuity.
If you suffer from chronic stress, pain, insomnia or experience regular anxiety, floatation therapy offers a gravity-free environment where you can float your cares away and ease the harmful cumulative effects of stress. And you get some much needed ME TIME!
