1. It’s a ‘Cheat Code’ to Meditation
We’ve all read articles about the benefits of meditation, but for many of us it can be hard to know where to start. How many of you have sat down to meditate only to be distracted by the sound of the barking dog in the distance or had the constant urge to pick up your smartphone and check your social media?
The floatation tank is like training wheels for meditation, it gives you an experience of what it’s like to switch off and be present, which makes it easier for you to do the same when you’re sitting in meditation, or practicing mindfulness in your daily life.
Even during your first float you will naturally become very aware of your breathing as you have no external stimuli. Regular floaters find floating a simple yet profound way to achieve deep, relaxed, meditative states effortlessly.
2. Get Your Weekly Magnesium Fix
We use over 600kgs of Epsom Salt in each of our State-of-the-art Float Pods. The main component of Epsom Salt is Magnesium, a mineral which many of us are deficient in due to our diets. Floating in water that is so rich in Magnesium is one of the simplest and most effective ways to absorb the mineral.
Magnesium is vital for general Health and Wellbeing. It helps us sleep better, it regulates enzymes, it reduces inflammation and can prevent cardiovascular disease.
It also aids recovery from injuries and helps ease aching joints and muscles so floating regularly is a great way to ensure you always have optimal levels of Magnesium in your body.
3. Get an Endorphin Release
We all love that endorphin release from a hard workout or a joyous laugh with friends. Endorphins block pain and give you a strong feeling of happiness and wellbeing. While relaxing in the unique environment of a Float Tank, your body naturally releases these Endorphins as well as dopamine which can have a profound and noticeable effect on your health and wellbeing.
When you float regularly and become more comfortable with the environment this endorphin release and feeling of euphoria can last for hours even days after your float, we call it the ‘Post-Float Glow’.
4. Get That Creativity Boost
With the sometimes overwhelming nature of our stimulus rich world it can be hard to find a moment of clarity. Many regular floaters find themselves experiencing flashes of insight inside the Float Tanks, or thinking through problems in a lucid creative state with some reporting profound experiences that have a big impact on their personal development.
For many regular floaters the stimulus free world inside a Sensory Deprivation Float Tank will not only allow your mind to wander and ponder but it just might give you the creative jolt that you were looking for.
5. Have some ’Time Out’
We all deserve a little ‘me-time’ at least once a week or fortnight, a chance to really let go and unplug from everything. Yet for many of us this vital self-care suggestion has become a rare occurrence.
Just taking an hour a week or fortnight in a Float Tank is like taking a mini vacation, a reset if you will. Regular floaters emerge feeling both relaxed and at peace with a fresh, euphoric outlook on their journey ahead. An hour in the tank is just what people need to recharge their batteries and achieve an optimal state of health and wellbeing.
