The tanks are not completely zero-gravity (as in outer space). But, they create a near zero-gravity state, which allows our bodies to rest and heal. This state will place your mind in a unique environment, which supports the creation of new neural networks and unique processes.
Restricted Environmental Stimulus
When we float, we are able to regulate the amount of environmental stimuli that are received through our senses. This allows a space for our mind, body, and soul to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.
Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)
Magnesium is reported to provide better sleep, relax the nervous system, support the growth and maintenance of muscles, increase muscle flexibility, support the integrity and strength of bones, re-mineralize our teeth, alkalize the body, hydrate the body, provide relief to our digestive system, and support enzyme function. Sulfates are found in every cell within the human body and play a role in the production of collagen, detoxifying the body, supporting the digestive system, pancreas function and the secretion of digestive enzymes, as well as having antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
Being vs. Doing
Have you heard of the phrase: human beings have become human-doings? We have. For the modern human, it is a foreign concept to set aside 60 or 90 minutes for the sole purpose of rest and relaxation. While developing a regular meditation practice is a lovely concept, it can be hard for some people to engage in this practice. At FLOAT STL, you can choose to inhabit a space that is void of distraction. It will be your own quiet and peaceful sanctuary.
