The Science

Muscle Relaxation

When you temporarily take away the effect that gravity has on the body, our muscles can relax fully, allowing them to heal faster and get rid of any residual tension that has been building up. Epsom Salt is rich in magnesium – a muscle relaxant and a protein builder for your joints, that can be absorbed directly into your muscles when you float. Better still, the positive effects of floating on our bodies are cumulative – which means the more frequently you float, the more you will feel the benefits.

Cardio-Vascular Health

Inside a float tank – without gravity, movement or other physical pressures on our bodies – our blood pressure and heart rate can return to healthy levels. The profound effect this has on our cardiovascular system is that it encourages our blood vessels and capillaries to dilate. The greater flow of blood, the greater the flow of oxygen and nutrients to every single cell in our bodies, promoting healthy tissue growth.

Better Immunity

T-cells (or T lymphocytes) are a type of blood cell that play an important role in determining the health of our immune system. During floating, our t-cells are boosted, along with our circulation, improving our overall immune health.

Hormone Health

Biologically, deep neuromuscular relaxation (achieved through floating) changes the type and quantities of hormones secreted by the brain and endocrine system. Floating is proven to improve our hormonal balance by reducing the production of cortisol – the stress hormone – and increasing the production of endorphins (or colloquially, our “happy hormones”).
