Perhaps you’ve heard about the benefits of Epsom Salt and what it can do for you - reducing pain and discomfort from muscle fatigue and spasms, and reducing inflammation in the body for conditions like arthritis, rheumatism, MS, diabetes and high blood pressure. Epsom salt is also known as Magnesium Sulphate and the interesting thing is where magnesium is found to be low in us humans, issues may occur in body and mind. Magnesium plays a critical role in the production of energy in cells, helping us to feel invigorated; low magnesium levels on the other hand are associated with depression and anxiety. Studies show increased magnesium levels in the body from soaking in water enriched with Epsom salt as magnesium and sulfate are both easily absorbed through the skin. Sulfates have been shown to play an important role in the formation of brain tissue, and proteins important for healthy body functioning. In addition they are also thought to be a detoxifying agent.
Epsom salt used at home on a regular basis in the bath helps with aching muscles; soaking feet in an Epson salt solution helps reduce gout pain. But if you really want to feel benefits of magnesium for longer then I would highly recommend you try Floating in a Floatation Pod. ‘Pods’ are the latest in Floatation technology designed to deliver the best possible floatation experience. Quite apart from being spacious, quiet and technologically advanced they deliver an unmatched floatation experience with considerable benefits.
Imagine then the benefits of floating in a Pod on a regular basis in 500kg of Epsom salt. And imagine spending an hour where the outside world is gone - no light or sound and NO gravity! Without the stimulus of light and sound, you’re likely to experience the deepest relaxation ever!
Global studies of the benefits of floatation therapy show reduction of both pain and stress. It is recommended to float three to five times to initially understand the process of floatation and begin to reap its long-term advantages. Benefits are cumulative. The more you Float, the more you’re able to access deeper states of relaxation, meditation, creative insights, and to problem solve faster and more efficiently.
I have been working with people with Floatation Therapy for over 35 years and continue to be amazed at how such a simple technique can offer so many benefits for so many different conditions, both physically and mentally.
