Floatation Therapy has been around for a long time and dates back to the 50’s and 60’s but has gained popularity in the last few years within Australia and abroad for the extensive list of health benefits it provides.
Not only does floating provide the floater with a unique, deep relaxation experience but the benefits that come from floating regularly in a high concentration of epsom salt and skin temperature water are inspiring many to ask “So what is floating exactly?”.
Well to summarise, a float session begins when the tank’s door is closed.
Light is completely eliminated and sound is reduced to near zero through the combination of the tank’s insulation and submersion of the floater’s ears. Earplugs can further block outside noises.
The air and water within the tank are maintained at a constant skin temperature. This neutral temperature prevents the physical and mental distractions caused by cold and heat.
