You can think of a Floatation tank as your own giant, private bath tub full of Epsom Salts.

So much Epsom Salt that when you hop in you will float effortlessly.

Float tank health benefits include so much more then just deep relaxation. (Not that there is anything wrong with that!).

Benefits range from cardiovascular health, to insomnia, anxiety, stress relief and general well being.

Think of yourself floating with ease, in warm water heated to body temperature. The environment is dark and quiet and time passes with total ease.

It’s just you, your body and your chance to take some time for yourself and totally re charge.

Relax and unwind
There is no doubt about it, floating is a highly relaxing experience. The weightlessness relieves so much pressure on your body that it allows the nervous system to reset.
 
With this comes a calming effect.
 
The combined effect of this, with the magnesium content reduces blood pressure and decreases cortisol.
 
As floating also accesses theta brain waves during the session, these mimic sleep. This helps to further relax you and provides you a rested feeling.
