What Are the Benefits of Floatation Therapy?
Floating or floatation therapy is a one-of-a-kind experience whereby you float effortlessly in 25cm of water that is saturated with 525kg of magnesium-rich Epsom-salts.
An environment similar to that of the Dead Sea, but without the sensation of temperature or movement, which lets you float on the surface of the solution while enjoying a feeling of total freedom and complete weightlessness!
Orbit tanks are specifically designed to block out all external distractions, be they visual, audio, olfactory or tactile. The result is often a long-lasting and transformational experience.
Sensory Deprivation Therapy: What Does It Do?
Saltwater floatation therapy – or a session in a sensory deprivation tank – has many benefits, both physical and mental, because the floatation experience produces an unmatched level of deep relaxation.
In a floatation tank, external stimuli are removed, which reduces the workload of the central nervous system by up to as much as 90%. This means that the body can use this energy internally, gently pushing the mind and body into a deeply relaxed state.
What is Epsom Salt?
Epsom salt, named after a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulphate.
Renowned as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related applications.
