Floatation

WHAT IS FLOATING?

Floatation Therapy is a popular health and wellness treatment now available in Perth. Float Tanks are also known as Sensory Deprivation Tanks. Float Tanks are the ultimate relaxation to float and restore balance to over stimulated Parasympathetic Nervous Systems.
Floatation Therapy opens the pathways to meditation, reducing stress, anxiety, heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension. It also increases energy, happy hormone production, magnesium absorption and heart rate variability (HRV).
With the benefits of meditation – massage – natural medication – psychology! Sound to good to be true? It’s science, it’s the future!

BENEFITS

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Arthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, bursitis, inflammation, and psychosomatic pain relief have all been documented via tank use.

MAGNESIUM ABSORPTION

Magnesium has been shown to be deficient in the standard Australian diet. From standard pain relief to preventing osteoporosis, magnesium is awesome!

IMPROVED SLEEP

From managing chronic stress and inducing a natural calm to facilitate introspection, many people report drastically improved sleep patterns.

STRESS REDUCTION

Regular floating can alter the set-points in the endocrine homeostatic mechanism which can cause adjustments such as a lower adrenal activation threshold.

REHAB AND RECOVERY

Magnesium absorbed through your skin helps relax muscle tissue and encourage blood flow, accelerating rehabilitation and recovery.

JET LAG AND FATIGUE

Floating has quickly become a popular technique for minimizing the affects of jet lag and fatigue. One hour in a tank is roughly equivalent to 6-8 hours sleep.

MEDITATION

Meditation has a plethora of researched benefits and floating is a unique and phenomenal tool to cultivate mental stillness.

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

Epsom salt baths help draw out toxins, lactic acid build-up, and speed up recovery time. This is why floating has been adopted by many professional athletes.

INCREASED CREATIVITY & SUPER LEARNING

With less distractions and greater resources at your mind's disposal, you are able to absorb new material very deeply improving memory and recall.
Studies suggest floating encourages more creative solutions to complex problems.

DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

A study from The International Journal of Stress Management indicated a group of 70 floaters experienced reduced pain, stress, anxiety and depression.

INCREASED IMMUNE FUNCTION

Immune function is enhanced by suppressing stress hormones which weaken the immune system and suppress the digestion and reproductive systems.

ENDORPHIN PRODUCTION

Floating floods the body with endorphins. These neurotransmitters are responsible for relieving pain, enhancing mood, and decreasing anxiety.

BEFORE YOU FLOAT

To achieve the full benefits of your float, avoid eating for 1.5 to 2 hours prior. Drinking: A hydrated body is a healthy body. For optimal benefits stay hydrated before your float, but beware of excessive fluid consumption just prior to your float so you don’t have to disrupt your session for bathroom breaks.

Immediately after exposure to nicotine, smokers experience a “kick” as the drug stimulates the adrenal glands and discharges adrenaline. We advise you avoid smoking just prior to your float to prevent stimulating your mind too much. If you’re trying to quit smoking, perhaps a session in the tank may even suppress your cravings!

Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant. In moderate doses it can increase alertness, cause insomnia, headaches, nervousness and even dizziness. For maximum benefits from your float you want your mind and body to be at its most relaxed, so avoid caffine if possible for 3 hours before your float

For your comfort, avoid shaving your face for 6 hours and your body for 12 hours before you float, as the Epsom Salts will sting any cuts or scratches. Vaseline is provided to cover and prevent stinging on any cuts or lesions you find when you arrive.

We advise you go to the toilet on arrival, prior to your float – even if you don’t feel the need to go. Having to get out of the tank to “answer nature’s call” can be very disruptive to your float experience.

If you’re a first time floater, you may consider doing some thinking and research around: breathing; float positions; letting go; stillness; and sensitivity. Our staff are happy to provide advice and guidance when you arrive – so if you’re unsure, please ask!
