Having high cortisol levels for prolonged periods can wreck havoc on your health. Floating dramatically lowers stress chemicals such as cortisol, adrenaline, and blood pressure, sending you into deep relaxation.
Examine any situation uninterrupted as you free your mind from distraction. Every session trains you to get into a state of flow easily. Outside of the tank, it’s easier to focus and return to this state of mind.
Tests show that floating increases access to your brain's right hemisphere and synchronizes brain-wave activity of the two hemispheres.
Floating fast tracks your brain into theta state. This state of mind gives you access to your unconscious, helping you to make interesting connections and discover new insights, plus creative inspiration.
Without distraction, your mind becomes more receptive to new ideas, making it easier to decondition and unfreeze belief structures.
Speed up healing, promote muscle repair, and lower your blood pressure. As you float weightless, your blood circulation improves significantly. The reduced tension lasts for days, or even weeks.
Speed up your recovery in between workouts. The gravity-free environment reduces lactic acid and inflammation, compressing what normally takes a long period of time into hours.
As you clear out fight-flight stress chemicals and reduce physical tension, your quality of sleep improves.
In this distraction-free environment, floating can help you to access a prolonged theta state, which normally takes years of meditation to get to.
The float pod is an excellent place to practise visualisation, which can spark rapid improvement at work, school, or in athletic performance. Train your central nervous system to produce the ‘perfect performance’, free from distraction.
Floating helps to build your awareness of the mind-body connection. In the pod, you are able to examine your inner landscape uninterrupted, reflecting on how your emotions manifest in physical tension, and more.
Epsom salt contains magnesium, which is involved in hundreds of biochemical reactions that benefit your heart and nervous system. Therefore, soaking in this natural mineral promotes the absorption of magnesium, helping to detox and reduce inflammation in your body.
Soaking in Epsom salt water is deeply soothing for your mind and body, promoting better circulation, loosening tight muscle fibres, and encouraging healing of muscle tissue.
Healthy magnesium levels help to boost brain neurotransmitters that are responsible for inducing sleep and reducing stress.
