Have you been considering floatation therapy, but you’re not sure of what you’ll get out of the experience? We’ve put together a list of seven reasons why floatation therapy is an experience like no other.
1. It can spark creativity
On a typical day, up to 80% of the workload a human brain deals with is strictly external stimuli. Floating in a sensory deprivation pod removes external stimuli which gives the mind the space it needs to wander. Because of this, floating fosters increased creativity and introspective thinking.
2. It’s good for your skin
If you have sensitive skin, the magnesium in float tanks can calm skin down and leave it feeling soft and rejuvenated. Many floaters report improvement with their acne and eczema.
3. It can help with pain
The combination of feeling weightless while floating and the healing effects of the salt water in floatation tanks has been known to help with chronic pain, sore joints and muscles, herniated discs, sports recovery, and a handful of other painful conditions.
4. It’s great for your hair
The water in float pods is filled with highly concentrated Epsom salts. This type of magnesium can make your hair feel more conditioned and look healthier. When you finish your session, you might notice that your hair looks better and feels smoother. Magnesium is also known to improve scalp health.
5. It can help with stress and anxiety
One of the main reasons floaters decide to try sensory deprivation tanks is to reduce stress and anxiety. The majority of people who try out floatation therapy report a noticeable reduction in stress and feelings of anxiousness. In some people with certain mineral deficiencies, magnesium can work like an antidepressant. The magnesium in the water is highly effective because it can be easily absorbed by the skin while floating.
6. It’s fun
You get to be in control of the experience when you float. This is the kind of “me time” you deserve. You can swim around, change up the lights and music, and make the experience into what you want it to be.
7. It makes for a great story
At the very minimum, trying out floatation therapy will give you something to talk about with your friends. If you’ve been wondering all these years what it feels like to be floating on air, this is the closest you can get to figuring it out.
