Float Therapy: What it Is, What it Does

Floatation therapy is what the body craves after a long week. It’s popular because it’s one of the most relaxing experiences your body can experience. Picture it: you lay effortlessly on a super saturated bed of Epsom salt and water and everything else randomly floats into place. This moment to escape from gravity gives your body an opportunity to recharge here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa in Boise.

When living your daily life, you’re given an environment where you must process internal thoughts while handling external distractions at the same time. For example, you have a thousand things on your mind while completing other daily tasks: Driving your car, answering your phone, responding to email, picking up kids, etc. Life is happening at a constant speed and never stops. Floating gives you an environment that contains no distractions. You no longer need to take-in information, giving your mind and body a true rest.

You float in a tank, it’s big and it’s comfy. The tanks are filled with 10 inches of water, and approximately 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt. The water is maintained at 94.5 degrees which is considered skin-receptor neutral, not hot, not cold, not anything. Your senses are quieted. Your ears are just below the water line, and you lose track of where your body ends and where the water begins.

Imagine some time without your phone! During your float you have zero obligations, and you can just breathe. Your mind is now able to remove clutter without distraction, your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body can recharge, heal, and de-stress. It’s a crazy world at times and float therapy is likely to be the most relaxing thing you and your body have ever experienced right here on the Boise Bench.

No gravity. No sound. No light. Nothing. The more you float, the better you feel, in Perpetuity. Come try float therapy for yourself, in Perpetuity Skin + Spa on Vista.
