Float Therapy uses the concept of sensory deprivation to allow your mind and body to relax. In the absence of gravity, imagine the feeling of floating effortlessly, while being supported by a liquefied bed of Epsom Salt to produce one of the most profound relaxation experience you’ve may ever have felt. Experience stress and tension leave your mind and body, while floating over 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt. So powerful, that it lasts for days. See below for other benefits in addition to lowering your stress levels. I have personally tried floating and have experienced some of these benefits.

What Epsom is Salt? 

 

Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate.
  • Magnesium is crucial to a number of roles in the body, including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, cell metabolism, reducing inflammation, helping nerve and muscle function, while playing a key role in the prevention of arterial hardening. It also promotes quick healing of skin tissue and provides the skin’s surface with anti-allergic elements.
  • Sulfates assist in the assimilation of nutrients, help to flush toxins and ease migraine headaches.

Studies have been conducted showing that magnesium and sulfate are both easily and readily absorbed through the skin, merely by soaking in the solution, making float therapy with Epsom Salt an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits. Your body will only absorb what it needs.

BENEFITS:
Floating in large quantities of Epsom Salt may help may accelerate pain relief, stress relief, and faster healing time. It may also provide relief to those suffering from PTSD, Sleep Apnea and other ailments. One common side effect that has often been reported is improved sleep.
