Floating for Aches and Pain

By: | Tags:

Photo Credit: Steven Pisano on Flickr I floated again yesterday, this time for an hour. One reason I love to float is that I get to lose my pain. Not only for the length of the float, but for days after. As you get older, one of the things you notice is that things start to hurt. The hurt can be nothing big, just a series of small aches and pains. It’s most noticeable when you first get up in the morning, or the day after you’ve done something athletic […]

No Time To Float? It’s Probably Time to Float.

By: | Tags:

Like many of us, when my life feels its most full and stressful my wellbeing habits tend to be the first thing to slide. Yoga, eating well—and Floating are all apt to fade from my daily rotation. The irony, of course, is that when life feels as such, this is when I need these habits and wellness routines most. I begin to look at those feel-good habits—which are so easy to take for granted (until you stop dong them)—as numbers. Save an hour here, cut 30 minutes here. I marginalize […]

Returning to Beginners Mind

By: | Tags:

Floating is a practice. As with any learned experience, it is tempting to take on an attitude of knowing what to expect as we return. But, floats are always shifting—and they are primarily an art of letting go. On days we arrive to float with this expectation of knowing what to expect, we may actually feel held back from our deepest experiences and levels of relaxation. Floating is described as “effortless”, but with our mental powers this description comes with a bit of irony. The greatest hindrance to relaxing is […]

3 Float Therapy Myths

By: | Tags:

Here are a few common comments or concerns we have heard in our spas…if you have an additional question, please leave it as a comment!   1. “I already do this in my bath”   Epsom Salt baths are awesome. But, they’re a far cry from float therapy. Even if you do add 1,000 lbs of Epsom Salts into your tub, there are other factors contributing to float therapy’s impact, including:   Weightlessness:   The constant force of gravity we experience is counteracted while floating in the Float Pod, allowing […]

Reclaim Your Body’s Power

By: | Tags:

Medication seemed, for years, as the singular go-to for “healing” ailments of all kinds—often targeting the symptoms of our discomfort: numbing pain, masking anxiety and “knocking us out” at night.   A large majority of our clients have been looking for health and wellness through preventative and natural, holistic means which address the root of pain or other dis-ease. Holistic therapies believe that wellness isn’t just being free of symptoms, but is just as powerful—a vibrant state all its own, in the opposite direction of illness.   This isn’t an […]

4 Tips for Flawless Floats

By: | Tags:

Whether it’s your 1st float or your 1000th, little details can make a big positive difference in your session. If you’re not using them already, consider implementing the following “pro-tips” into your float routine.   1. Take a –Warm- Shower The water in our Float Pods is purposefully heated to match the outside of the temperature of your skin (~93.5 degrees). This temperature is chosen to allow for the least amount of stimulus/distraction to the brain from the sensing of the water. If you’ve floated already, you have likely already […]

The Nature of “Effortless”

By: | Tags:

Float Therapy is unlike just about every other “activity” out there.  In fact, it’s really more of an “inactivity”—but as anyone who floats knows, this flavor of “doing nothing” offers far more than the phrase would imply. We hear the benefits and experiences—that extensive list that science continues to validate through their studies—we see the testomonials, and it becomes evident the profound impact 60 minutes floating in 10 inches water and defying gravity has. So, how do we best access this healing potential? Few aspects of our lives do their […]

Pain Relief So Simple…

By: | Tags:

…its hard to believe, until you come float for yourself! One of the most profound benefits of flotation is pain relief—and a noted decrease in healing time. Many of our clients are those who are, not only stressed, but may also be in constant pain. As many are seeking a natural alternative, one that actually impacts pain at the root, flotation therapy is a powerful option which is gaining speed and popularity (because it works!). You don’t need to just take our word for it, flotation—also known as REST therapy—has […]
