Floating and Magnesium

Flotation Therapy is the amazing process of relaxing the body and mind in an anti-gravity, zero-distraction environment. Our float tanks are filled with 900+ pounds of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) and dissolved into approximately 150 gallons of purified water. This creates a very dense solution which allows the body to float effortlessly. The float guest has a choice of turning off the lights, music, and closing the pod lid which reveals another layer of deep tranquility and stillness. With the body fully supported, you are able to fully relax, let go and many of our guests even enter a theta brain wave state when floating. This is the same state associated with deep mediation, creativity and dreaming. So why is floating in Epsom salt so beneficial? Did you know that there’s one nutrient in your body, and only one, that is connected to 56 different diseases? Next to water and oxygen, your body needs magnesium to survive. Low Magnesium levels are rarely tested in most of the population so deficiencies go easily unnoticed. Magnesium deficiency can include anxiety, acid reflux, constipation, insomnia (Sleep), kidney stones and hormonal imbalances.

Floating is a great way for the body to absorb magnesium. According to this study, Magnesium levels in the blood rise for a few days, and sulfate levels rise for 7 days, then level off. Many Americans are deficient in magnesium. Raising your magnesium levels can improve your circulation, improve your body’s ability to use insulin, ease muscle pain, regulate electrolytes, and relieve stress.5 According to the Universal Health Institute: Although magnesium can be absorbed through the digestive tract, many foods, drugs and medical conditions can interfere with the effectiveness of this delivery method. Therefore, soaking in an Epsom Salt bath is one of the most effective means of making the magnesium your body needs readily available.
