What is Floatation?

Floatation involves lying in a salt-water solution in a specially designed I-sopod tank. It is the most effective and incredible means of stress relief and relaxation available. Now widely accepted, floatation is also used to treat a wide range of ailments and conditions. The salt-water solution is heated to skin temperature (93.5 degrees). Once you are settled, it is almost impossible to tell which parts of your body are in the water and which aren't. This will trick your brain into thinking that you're floating in mid air. The buoyancy created by the Epsom-salt solution removes the effects of gravity on the body. This will make you feel almost completely weightless, letting every single muscle in your body to fully relax. With no commands needing to be sent out, activity in the logical side of the brain slows down until it synchronizes with the creative side. This will leave you in a dream-like state, similar to that experienced just before you go to sleep. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins, a 'feel good' chemical. While the state of relaxation may be deep and profound, your brain will stay dreamily alert. To get technical, the brain gradually shifts from its usual alpha state to generate theta waves. New floatation research regularly reveals more remarkable benefits from repeatedly using float tanks. And best of all, the effects of floatation are cumulative -- the more often you float, the better it is for you!
