BOOK A FLOAT THERAPY SESSION: 613-542-5802
What is Floating?
Flotation therapy, also known as weightless floating, is a relaxation therapy you truly need to experience to understand how it can enhance your life. By entering one of our luxurious float pods, your brain escapes the constant need to process light, sound, gravity, or even moderate your body temperature. For one hour your body is weightless, indulging in the benefits of anti-gravity, floating in water with over 800 lbs. of Epsom Salt dissolved into it. The combination of darkness, silence, body temperature and weightlessness creates the perfect environment for restoration and rejuvenation. Through this practice, you can expect a variety of benefits for the mind, body and soul.
Benefits of Flotation Therapy
Inside the tank, amplified circulation throughout your body leads to muscle relaxation and an overall reduction in natural cortisol production. You’ll discover increased visual acuity and other amplified senses due to the reduction in inbound information, by shutting out the world and quieting the mind.
Only 25% of Canadian's get the recommended amount of magnesium. A session in the float tank will correct that due to the high concentration of Epsom Salt (magnesium sulphate) inside each of our units. This is great news as magnesium can regulate blood pressure, assist in detox and assists in prevention of other common cardiovascular diseases.
Due to the magnesium presence, and anti-gravity affects, guests have reported significant improvements in their experience of pain with ailments such as tendinitis, bursitis, inflammation, arthritis, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and general soreness.
Over stimulation is considered the norm in the western world. Yet monks dedicate their lives seeking stillness and control. “A person’s greatest problems come from their inability to be still with themselves.”
Inside the tank you will have the opportunity to be completely undistracted, alone with your thoughts. A very lucid, powerful, and connected experience!
Regular floating and other mindfulness practices can alter points in the endocrine homeostatic mechanism which can cause adjustments such as lower adrenal activation threshold. Simplified, this means you train your body and biochemistry to be more resistant to releasing stress hormones, which will help overall with the adaptation to the stresses we are exposed to.
