The Epsom salts you are lying in aren’t actually a salt but a mineral compound of Magnesium and Sulphate. The wonders of Epsom salts have been known for hundreds of years and have countless health benefits including relaxing the nervous system, curing skin problems, soothing backpain and aching limbs, easing muscle tension, healing cuts and drawing toxins from the body.
Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases the level of adrenaline. While you float in peace your body absorbs the magnesium through your skin replenishing your bodies levels. Magnesium is absorbed easily through your skin and while floating your body is topped up with the magnesium that the daily stresses have drained. It assists in reducing inflammation in muscles, increasing muscle recovery times and eases pain making it beneficial for people living with chronic pain. For those of you taking calcium supplements, correct magnesium levels are crucial for the proper use of calcium.
Low sulphate levels have been found to affect growth development and has been linked to diseases such as Alzheimers, Parkinson’s , Schizophrenia, Autism, Motor Neurone disease and Cirrhosis of the liver. Like Magnesium Sulphate can be absorbed through the skin while soaking.
Entering the float tanks removes all external input allowing the mind to relax. This frees up a huge amount of processing power that is normally used to keep you alive and upright throughout the day. It’s still scanning the environment but the environment is now dark, quiet, with very minimal incoming information. Due to the lack of incoming information from the outside the brain scans for information from other sources. It finds information and stimulation from looking inward to your bodies systems. The resulting effect is the feeling of relaxation and well being from the release of endorphins and dopamine and a reduction in levels of Cortisol, the adrenal hormone that puts your body on alert.
Lying in the float tank environment also allows you to be present in your mind, this is the same thing that meditation teaches. You reflect on many things that slide past you each day, relationships, health, love, work. It is extremely self-reflective and you can sort a lot of stuff out in there.
Increased learning, the quiet state of your mind makes it very susceptible to suggestion and input. Learning a new language, for instance, is enhanced if the language is played while being in the tank. Athletes use the tank to train their mind to achieve their best performance. the Australian Institute of Sport, Carlton Football Club, Indianapolis Colts, Carl Lewis Gold Medal Olympian have all used float tanks to achieve their best performances.
We recommend that you float naked in the tank as you will have your own private room, lockable door and a shower all in the same room.
Towels, earplugs, and everything else you need is provided.
What is epsom salt?
Epsom salt, named for a bitter saline spring at Epsom in Surrey, England, is not actually salt but a naturally occurring pure mineral compound of magnesium and sulfate. Long known as a natural remedy for a number of ailments, Epsom salt has numerous health benefits as well as many beauty, household and gardening-related uses.
Studies have shown that magnesium and sulfate are both readily absorbed through the skin, making Epsom salt baths an easy and ideal way to enjoy the amazing health benefits. Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening. Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins and help ease migraine headaches.
