The ultra-deep relaxation of floating “resets” the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthening resistance to and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.
Reaching a restful state in the zero-gravity environment in a floatation tank, the brain releases endorphins by the brain, powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being. It will also further enhance the healing benefits and sensation of relaxation created by the zero gravity environment.
Aside from endorphins released by the brain, your brainwaves will also shift into a theta state. Theta brainwaves are a rare brain state, normally achievable by people trained extensively in meditation. Floating can be considered as a short cut to achieving the deepest state of mind, and wellbeing.
The salt is continually absorbed by the skin, allowing the skin to remain smooth and supple.
With ear plugs in and, if you wish, the tank’s interior lights off, the quiet and darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible.
Freed from the sensations of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of normal neuromuscular activity), your body will conserve and redirect vast amounts of physical and mental energy.

With no commands needing to be sent out, the logical side of the brain is rendered redundant, and its activity slows down allowing the creative side to flourish. This leaves the individual in a dream-like state, akin to the moments experienced just before you fall asleep. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins and dopamine.
While everyone experiences floating in their own way, the float pods provide the perfect environment for a deep state of relaxation. This relaxation allows the brain to gradually shift from its usual waking beta state to generate deep alpha, theta or even delta waves.
