What is Float Tank Therapy?
Float Tank Therapy consists of a tank of water completely saturated with Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt). Approximately six pounds of salt for every gallon of water. This high density solution forces a person to float at the surface of the water, effortlessly. No need to paddle or hold your breath, just allow physics to keep you afloat. This unique experience takes away the effects of gravity on your body. Allowing the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues to completely relax, as they no longer need to work against the effects of gravity. The joints can decompress. The spine elongates. Often decreasing or eliminating pain in these areas. Add to this, a significant reduction in sensory input to facilitate relaxation of the mind, and provide a reset to the nervous system. The lights are reduced or off completely. Sound is minimized or eliminated. The water in the tank is 95 degrees, which matches your outer skin temperature. This matched temperature takes away the perception of hot or cold, decreasing this input into the brain as well. An environment well suited to promote improvements in pain, recovery, sleep, anxiety, PTSD, addictions, circulation, and much more.
