BENEFITS OF EPSOM SALT BATH IN FLOAT POD / ROOM

 Epsom salt

There are a number of benefits of adding epsom salts to your bath but it can not replace the benefits of soaking in float pod or tank filled with 350 kg of epsom salts.
They will be as follows:

1.TOP UP MAGNESIUM LEVELS IN YOUR BODY
As magnesium is readily absorbed through the skin, into the muscles and blood stream, soaking or floating is an ideal way to top up your levels and promote relaxation. A float pod/ tank has 350+ kgs of Epsom salt available in it, which cannot be replicated at home and is impractical to keep or maintain for at home! So visiting a float centre would be the next best thing to do.

2.RELIEVE STRESS
Not only is 100 % me time ideal for stress relief, the added benefit that epsom salt has to offer is enormous! Magnesium helps produce serotonin which is a mood elevating chemical found in the brain, it also boosts energy with the assistance in production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate).

3. RELIEVE MUSCLE CRAMPS
A float tank session with Epsom Salts will help mitigate inflammation, relieve muscular soreness and most importantly assist in minimising painful muscular cramps. The magnesium component of Epsom Salts acts a muscle relaxant further contributing to stress reduction by relieving muscular tension

4. DETOX
Epsom Salts are commonly used in the detoxification process, through the skin by way of a bath. The sulfate component of Epsom Salts, helps in drawing the heavy metals and toxins out of your body.

5.HEART HEALTH
Magnesium has long been known to improve heart health and help in preventing heart disease and strokes. It does so by improving circulation and keeping arteries elastic.

6. FOOT HEALTH
The benefits of soaking feet during a float session in the managing of symptoms of Athletes foot, removing splinters from feet, treating toenail fungus and easing any pain produced by gout.

7. RELIEF FROM CONSTIPATION
Magnesium has long been used as a remedy to help relieve constipation. Most of the minerals that Epsom Salt contains can be absorbed by our body and will reach the blood stream. When you are constipated, taking an Epsom Salt bath can help ease stubborn bowels.

8. INEXPENSIVE MANI-PEDI
Epsom Salt can not only soak tired hands and feet but also to scrub dead skin off in the most natural way by opening up the pores of the skin.

9. IMPROVE YOUR FACIAL
Epsom salt also works as regular skin cleanser to create a gentle scrub that will help exfoliate skin cells and remove blackheads.

So why not take your experience to next level by soaking yourself in floatation pod or tank to experience a whole range of added benefits.

FLOATATION THERAPY -HOW OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALLISTS GOT AN EDGE

2016_Summer_Olympics_logo.svg

Aly Raisman, a two-time Olympic gymnast with a gold medal from Rio already in the bag, recently discussed flotation therapy as a part of her training program: “You literally float in salt water for an hour or so. That stuff is really crucial because you have to find ways to rest.”

aly_raisman

Turns out she’s in good company – elite athletes have been floating their way to greatness for decades, citing both physical and mental benefits.

New England Patriots’ star quarterback, Tom Brady, reportedly owns his own float pod, inspiring the entire team to adopt the practice in preparation for the 2015 Super Bowl. The championship team is now rumoured to have a pod in their locker room.

Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry and Harrison Barnes famously float once a week, telling ESPN that the therapy is “an opportunity to just relax,” as well as a recovery tool for sore muscles during the gruelling NBA season.

Did you know that the Australian Olympic team has used floatation therapy, along with the Australian Institute of Sport, as part of their training program? Sportsmen and women utilise the beneficial effects from the floatation tank to help stimulate muscle growth, speed up recovery and aid visualisation and mental training.
Some other elite athletes who have benefitted from using the floatation tank include Olympic gold medalists Carl Lewis and Phillips Idowu, Ironman Champion Peter Reid and British soccer star Wayne Rooney. Jade Johnson is another sportswoman who loves floatation therapy.

Here is what some of them have said in interviews about their use of the float tank:-

Phillips Idowu, triple jump gold medallist says:
I’ve got a really good team behind me. I’ve got a nutritionist, physiotherapists, doctors and a masseuse. I’ve got a new coach that I’m working with, so everything’s going really well. I’m using a flotation tank every week and it all seems to be coming together nicely. I’m happy and it’s just flowing.”

Jade Johnson, high jump silver medallist says:
“When I first got into floatation therapy I tried it three times in a week and it was so beneficial that I had another two sessions leading into the 2008 European Cup. It was there that I jumped a personal best of 6.81m and qualified for the Beijing Olympics. I have always used physiotherapy and massage to help injury recovery but floatation is different. When I float I can really feel a lot of pressure being taken off my back and when I compete I feel calm and in tune with my Mind and body”.

“I think everyone should at least have one float in their lives, as they just don’t know what they are missing!”

Carl Lewis, long jump Olympic gold medallist
FTA states,”Carl Lewis, said to be the world’s greatest athlete, used in-tank visualization techniques to prepare himself for his gold medal long jump at the 1988 Seoul Olympics: the Dallas Cowboys, winners of the 1993 Superbowl, have been using float tanks since 1981 to develop the physical and psychological skills of their players; the AIS (Australian Institute of Sport) has been using tanks to train their successful Olympic squads since 1983. In the words of Jeff Bond of the AIS: “The floatation tank represents a new dimension in sports training for the elite athlete”.


Elite athletes may utilise the floatation tank as part of their training to be successful in their field, and you can too! Come and discover how floatation therapy can assist you in being successful on your personal journey – on a physical, mental and emotional level. Whether you are an athlete, performer, writer, musician, student, business person, mum or just curious about exploring your mind’s potential, there are many different ways in which the floatation tank can help you get you to where you want to be.

Are you a Software engineer? If so, you should float!

meditation_software

People use the floatation tank to turn off the noise from primary senses (visual, auditory & kinesthetic) and accelerate the transition from beta brain waves (normal state) to alpha (learning state) and ultimately theta (dream state). The process is similar to meditation, but a lot faster. Way faster and easier. It is like forced meditation without the pains of sitting up right and trying to detune the world around you.
The goal with both meditation and floatation is to reach the theta state. This is a powerful state where you can consciously listen to your subconscious mind. Usually through a series of what appears to be auditory or visual hallucinations. Monks train years to do this through meditation while staying consciously awake. Your body does this naturally every night but you switch off, fall asleep. Recall those auditory or visual flashes you get before you off switch kicks in and you fall asleep. That’s a glimpse into theta state. In an isolation tank you are consciously awake observing your subconscious mind. Most of the time. No years of training required. Just 3 floatation sessions and you can become a PRO

software-engineers-life
Our subconscious is a powerful supercomputer (no surprises there) which constantly gathers, calculates, builds patterns & connections faster than we can consciously observe (process). I think this is a natural safe measure so we don’t go insane. However imagine having the power to tap into this wealth of stored info. You know when you sometimes get a gut feeling? I believe that is the output from all the processing making their way to your conscious mind. Software guys can use the floatation tank to tap into this and get answers faster then waiting for them to bubble to the top.
The body and mind are a very busy and noisy place.
Especially if you are a software engineer you will know all about the noise and how distracting it can be to productivity. Hence why you like working nights pounding away at code, right. This feeling is common. But health wise, this is not sustainable. The answer is the floatation tank to help you calm down both mentally & physically and tap into your mind, the supercomputer.
The flotation tank immediately cuts out your auditory, visual and kinesthetic senses creating an environment similar to a womb. Allowing your mind to start exploring the inner self. Looking for answers to your questions. Tapping into the hidden recesses of the mind that are usually outside the reach of your conscious awareness.

The benefits
Relaxation (mental & physical) from the daily stresses of running your own business or writing ton of code,
Learning a new skill – play audio while you float to accelerate the learning process,
Get answers to questions faster – you’ve heard of sleep on it right and that it works. Well this is better because your conscious and you get more answers.
Better understand yourself – some call it enlightenment,

At Stanford scientifically proved by studying monks concluding that “Essentially when you spend a lot of time meditating, the brain shows a pattern of feeling safe in the world and more comfortable in approaching people and situations, and less vigilant and afraid, which is more associated with the right hemisphere.

Want answers to your software engineering challenges? don’t just sleep on it… Float!

FIBROMYALGIA FLOATATION PROJECT IN INDIA

 

Floatation Therapy For Fibromyalgia
One way to treat not only the fibromyalgia, but also the stress and anxiety that may accompany it is visiting a float tank, also known as a sensory deprivation tank. Floatation REST (reduced environmental stimuli therapy) was developed in the 1950s by John C. Lilly, M.D. and uses a water-filled tank that is approximately the size of a bed and heated to skin temperature. The water is saturated with Epsom salts so that the patient can float without any effort.
Patients remove their clothes , enter the tank in swim wear , turn off the lights, and relax. The idea is that this sensation of zero stimuli will help a person focus inward, eliminating distractions and calming the mind and body. The Fibromyalgia Floatation Project (FFP) believes that spending an hour in a float tank will help sufferers reduce pain significantly. The project selected fibromyalgia as the condition for their case studies because the symptoms of fibromyalgia match the potential benefits of REST. The benefits of float tanks for fibromyalgia have been studied for several decades and have been proven to include the following.
Relief of stress
Thomas H. Fine, an associate professor in the department of psychiatry of the Medical College of Ohio and Roderick A. Borrie, a clinical psychologist at South Oaks Hospital in Amityville, New York, co-authored article examining the clinical effects of REST on the stress response. They identified blood pressure, cortisol production, and muscle activity as key indicators of stress in the body. Their findings indicated that cortisol production decreased during floatation REST sessions and that:
“[There exists] the possibility of a resetting of the regulatory mechanism of cortisol across sessions. Furthermore, cortisol, which has received more attention than the other hormones [in its role as an indicator of stress], and blood pressure, have been shown to maintain the REST effect after cessation of repeated REST sessions (Turner & Fine, 1983). This phenomenon suggests that the REST effect may be more than a simple, immediately reversible response.”
Alleviation of depression and anxiety
Float therapy has been shown to alleviate depression and anxiety with the mood elevation effects of deep relaxation. Fine and Borrie found that the effects were most pronounced when floatation REST was utilized in conjunction with other forms of counselling. They also caution that severely depressed patients may need close monitoring due to the sometimes obsessive nature of thinking that can occur in the floatation tank.
Promotion of better, more restful sleep
Relaxation alone equals better, more restful sleep, and the deep relaxation in float tanks can help. Many fibromyalgia patients also suffer from restless leg syndrome, so getting a good night’s sleep can be difficult. Since fatigue can exacerbate symptoms of fibromyalgia, the sleep-promoting deep relaxation can be a vital benefit of floatation REST.
Pain relief
Perhaps one of the most important benefits of float tanks for fibromyalgia is relief from pain. Fine and Borrie noted that:
“Floatation REST can have an important role at several stages of the pain management process. By reducing both muscle tension and pain in a relatively short time and without effort on the part of the patient, flotation provides a dramatic demonstration of the benefits of relaxation. Relief is immediate and, although temporary, offers promise of further relief from REST and other relaxation-based strategies.”
Many patients who have dealt with fibromyalgia for a long period of time give up hope for new treatments. When they realize that float tanks can help manage pain, their mental outlook may change and they may be more confident in their treatment plan.
Relief of muscle tightness
The stiffness and muscle tightness of fibromyalgia can be addressed by float tanks. A small 2012 study found that pain due to tightness of muscles was decreased significantly after just three sessions in the float tanks. The pain-relieving effects lasted for a significant period after the treatment, which also helped to alleviate mood and make the study participants more hopeful. This increased optimism translates into better opportunities for successful treatment all around.
Corrects magnesium deficiency
Fibromyalgia sufferers may have a magnesium deficiency that causes their pain. The magnesium solution in the float tanks can be absorbed through the skin, helping to alleviate that deficiency without taking additional supplements. This can be a benefit to patients who have difficulty taking pills or who simply don’t want to take anything else.
The Fibromyalgia Flotation Project was designed for patients and interested medical professionals to test the efficacy of flotation REST treatments for fibromyalgia specifically.

Two patients in particular are highlighted here.
Tina suffered from pain and bruising as a lasting reminder of a car accident in 1998 but couldn’t figure out why she was still in so much pain. Doctors attempted to control her pain with prescription opioids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), with disastrous results. After nearly overdosing, she finally tried flotation REST while visiting friends.

Tina describes her first experience in the tank like this:
“[It was] like stepping into a warmth that was hard to describe. I felt held, secure, safe, enveloped and surrounded by this wonderful water that was so good to feel against my painful body. I had immediate pain relief and no breakthrough pain for 17 hours after my first float.”
After seven floats, Tina puts her pain level at just 10% of what it used to be.
Brigitta’s fibromyalgia was not traced to any one particular incident, but the pain and dizziness made it difficult for her to really function effectively. She was unable to take pain medications because of their side effects, so she utilized acupuncture, warm baths, and exercise. She was recruited by the Fibromyalgia Flotation Project at 70 years old and had this to say about the results:
“Floatation has made my life considerably better. I feel that it’s easier for me to take each day as it comes, which means that life gets easier. I feel much more positive and happy, and many of my friends confirm that.”

FLOATATION THERAPY FOR FIBROMYALGIA PAIN RELIEF

WHAT IS FIBROMYALGIA

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterised by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.
Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.
While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.
HOW CAN FLOATATION THERAPY HELP?
Many fibromyalgia patients also suffer from mental disorders such as depression and anxiety, both of which can exacerbate pain. One way to treat not only the fibromyalgia, but also the stress and anxiety that may accompany it is visiting a float tank, also known as a sensory deprivation tank.

There are many ways, both physical and emotional, that fibromyalgia patients find relief in the float tank:

Immediate and Ongoing Relief of Physical Pain
Thanks its sense of weightlessness, floating provides immediate relief on the muscles and joints, making it a natural therapy for fibromyalgia patients. The effects aren’t just in-the-moment, however: in one major study, fibromyalgia patients reported feeling less and less pain and muscle tension over a duration of a few weeks of regular floating, not just immediately after exiting the tank.

Increased Quality of Sleep
Floating has been linked to better quality and frequency of sleep in general, and the same effects hold true for fibromyalgia patients. This is especially important as insomnia is a frequent problem for sufferers, and a lack of sleep only reinforces the cycle of fatigue and discomfort during the day.

Less Stress & Anxiety
Some fibromyalgia research has shown that stress can aggravate the physical symptoms of the disease, so any way to lower stress is a huge win for patients. Floating has been well-established as a method of alleviating stress, and coupled with the physical relief of symptoms, the relief can be extremely effective for fibromyalgia sufferers.

Boosted Magnesium Levels
Some research points to magnesium deficiencies as a possible cause (or contributing factor) to fibromyalgia. Given that float tanks are full of magnesium-rich Epsom salt solution, fibromyalgia patients may find extra relief of symptoms thanks to absorbing magnesium through their skin during a float.

Enhancing Concentration and Focus
Some fibromyalgia patients report experiencing “fibro fog”—essentially, the inability to focus or concentrate, perhaps due to the discomfort of chronic pain. As many athletes have found, spending time in a float tank can help boost the powers of concentration, helping to restore some of the mental acuity impacted by “fibro fog”.

Fibromyalgia can be a devastating disease, but floatation therapy can help! Book an appointment now to try floating for the first time to keep the pain at bay.

CLAUSTROPHOBIA – It’s all in the Mind, Get rid off it.

Claustrophobia is one of the most commonly-expressed fears associated with floating in float pods. Let’s examine claustrophobia and why it should not stop you from floating.
Claustrophobia is generally defined as the fear of confined spaces. There are actually two separate components to claustrophobia: the fear of restriction and the fear of suffocation. The fear of restriction is the “fear of being trapped,” while the fear of suffocation is associated with a feeling of lack of air or asphyxiation.
With respect to Relaxopod, you are always completely safe and in complete control of your environment as a press of a button from inside the pod will have an attendant to care of you within minutes.
There is no reason to fear being trapped as the lid to the tank can be easily opened and you are free to leave the environment at any time. Also, there is no reason to fear suffocation as tank holds enough oxygen for one float session is not “air-tight.”
So, neither of the component fears associated with claustrophobia (the fear of restriction and the fear of suffocation), are valid, rational fears inside the relaxation tank.
Inside Relaxopod we find that most often, the fear of floating is connected to a fear of the unknown rather than to clinical claustrophobia. It is important to remember that once you are inside the tank, all of the external influences disappear. Your mental chatter slows down, and you are in control of your mind.
You can choose which thoughts to “feed” and which thoughts to “starve.” If the thoughts drift to fear, instead of stimulating and feeding the thought, simply sit with it. Notice where it originates in your body. Try to be the observer of the fear, rather than the fear itself. When you are inside the tank and concentrate on the feeling of claustrophobia, your experience will be altogether different if your mind is allowed to drift with thoughts not relating claustrophobia.
Notice and connect with the sensation of expansiveness inside the tank. Is it really small inside or actually really large? Can you really tell where the walls begin or end? Can you connect to the feeling of expanding outward?
A more different approach to tackle the problem will be trying not to judge your experience inside the tank on what you are feeling now. That is, instead of imagining what it might be like inside the tank, get into the tank and try it out. Then judge your experience.
You might even find that floating in the tank helps you to overcome your claustrophobia. There are numerous peer-reviewed medical journal articles that highlight the mental and psychological benefits of Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (aka “REST,” the clinical term for floating). Floating is known to be an effective treatment for depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder, among other psychiatric conditions. Benefits of floating are covered on other blog posts for you to check out.
In the meantime, give floating a try and let us know your thoughts! What was it like inside the tank? Was floating anything like how you imagined it? Leave a comment below.

YOUR FIRST FLOAT

The first time you Float is generally similar for many people: you will likely move around a bit at first to find the most comfortable position for you, then you begin to relax more deeply once you have adjusted to the unique environment of Floating weightlessly without distraction.
The more you Float, the easier it becomes to “let go” of the outside world which will help you to relax the body, quiet the mind, and sink into the experience.
Step 1
Schedule your appointment , trying to book at least 24 hours in advance to allow for proper planning and preparation. We’re typically booked in advance, especially during busy times of day, so you may have to plan further ahead if you want to Float at a popular time!
Step 2
Arrive at Shalom Float Spa! There is plenty of free parking in the lot, so no hassles there. For your first Float, please arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled time. Arriving early will ensure we can give you the best experience possible, ensure you are able to Float for the full duration, and so we can be respectful of all Clients’ appointments. Unfortunately, new Clients who do not arrive at least 15 minutes prior may not be able to use the service for which they are scheduled for the entire duration or may be required to reschedule.

Step 3
It’s time to start Floating!
Take a quick pre-Float shower to remove any hair, face, or body products that you have on
Insert your ear plugs to keep the salt out of your ears ,if you prefer so!Make sure to cover any cuts or scratches with the provided petroleum jelly after you shower

Take a step into the Floatation Therapy Room directly from the shower

FLOAT!
After your Float, the light will come on to bring you back, before the filtration system begins a couple minutes later
Take a quick post-Float shower to wash all the Epsom salt off your body
Get dressed and take care of any post-shower rituals you need to,

Let us know about your experience on google or social media. Enjoy your post-Float afterglow!

 

Floatation therapy in Relaxopod

banner_RelaxoPodFloating Releases Endorphins
Taking a break from gravity in floatation tanks also causes fascinating and significant changes in the brain. Endorphins are released. These are powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being while further enhancing the healing benefits of the zero gravity environment.

Meditative State of RelaxationRpod_1
A person who has a high stress level will find it virtually impossible to maintain that stress level after a float session due to endorphins being released in the brain as well as their brainwaves shifting from beta to alpha and even theta. Theta is a rare brain state that is normally reserved for people trained in meditation. An important contrast to meditation is the fact that a person can achieve a theta brain state in their very first float session, making it a quick and easy shortcut to deep relaxation.

The benefits achieved in a one hour session are significant on their own, but when compared to other therapies, floatation tanks are in a category all their own.

Floatation Therapy for first time in India

RELAXOPOD-BENEFITS OF FLOATING

The beneficial effects of floating are corroborated by a wealth of scientific explanations, compiled by Michael Hutchinson in his prominent book about floatation. According to experts, if gravity ceases, the central nervous system, muscles and spinal column are relieved of their load, alleviating the effects caused by gravity. The energy thus liberated and increased cerebral capacity increase the functioning of our internal regulation system and help the organism’s regeneration. Therefore, one hour of floating is the equivalent of approximately four hours of sleep. Some scientists explain the positive effects of floating citing altered brain waves. Among normal circumstances, the theta waves experienced prior to sleep cause free association,sudden realisations and subconscious organisation and processing. Buddhist monks are able to achieve the state created by these waves after long years of training. However, floating causes a sudden increase in theta waves measurable in mere weeks. This can benefit, among others, those in creative industries, such as designers, writers, painters, architects, and advertising professionals. Other research (National Institute for Mental Health, University of Colorado) supports the fact that floating can contribute to the synchronisation of the functioning of the left and right hemispheres of the brain. The left side – practical, structural, primarily used in day – to – day tasks – is harmonised with the creative and visual right half, capable of more holistic thinking. Floating thereby improves creativity, problem – solving and can speed up information reception and processing. The university of British Columbia (Vancouver) conducted research on the relation between sports and floating. The performance of basketball and darts players was measured prior to and after floating. The findings clearly reflected a positive effect on performance. Then human mind is capable of carrying out a series of imagined movements, even highly complex ones. Acts are therefore conceived in the mind, and the path to their actual execution is called natural feedback. World – class athlete and floating devotee Carl Lewis calls this process imagining and executing the perfect performance. This capability of the brain, which can be used in many different areas of our lives, is improved by floating.The success of floating can also be explained by an easily measurable neurochemical phenomenon (Medical College of Ohio, Toledo). During the early phase of humanity, where survival was the aim (called the “fight or flight”phase), the brain needed adrenalin and cortisol, both formed under stress, to ensure a quick reaction. As civilisation progressed, however, such stress hormones lost their function. A plethora of symptoms appearing under short, medium and long – term stress are caused by such hormones, which cannot exit the circulatory system (such as sleeping disorders, weak immune system, fatigue, concentration problems, excessive sweating, heart palpitations, anger outbursts, high blood pressure, cardiovascular conditions and cancer.) Floating helps prevent and alleviate stress, thus decreasing the production of “harmful” hormones. Simultaneously, it increases the organism’s natural production of “beneficial” hormones such as endorphins, which increase happiness, and beta – endorphin, which relieves pain.

Floating exerts a further beneficial effect in the following areas:

Mental health, neurology

  • alleviates the effects of stress
  • improves creativity
  • improves concentration and problem – solving
  • decreases learning difficulties

Who Should Use The Floatation Therapy?

RelaxoPod_For_Web_n_0002WM

You know what floatation therapy is, but not sure about who can use it in daily lives? Here is a simple guide for you.

Floatation therapy has been available for a long time, but recently, various researches have proven its benefits. Also, now we are aware of who can use floatation therapy to achieve a deep state of relaxation.

The simple answer to the question of who should use floatation therapy is- those who want to achieve a healthy state of mind and body.

Following are some of the examples of people who can benefit from the floatation therapy.

Stressed Individuals

Modern life is fast-paced, and competitive which can add a lot of stress to the individuals. Stress-related ailments like high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke are considered as fatal.

Also, when we are stressed, we cannot live our life to the fullest. Our mind is constantly worrying and is under constant pressure.

Floatation therapy helps to remove stress from your mind and body and helps you to achieve the highest state of relaxation.

Working People

A vast majority of people are working round the clock, especially the BPO staff. There are tight schedules, organizational competition, screaming bosses and lots of expectations. This creates an unhealthy environment for mind and body.

These people can benefit from the floatation session, free from any distractions, away from the daily clutter of the office. The solitude in the floatation tank can truly relax the working people.

Pregnant Women

A pregnant woman goes through a lot of discomforts and hormonal changes during the pregnancy period. Also, there are lots of mood fluctuations experienced by her during this time.

Floatation therapy can reduce these physical and mental discomforts in pregnant women quite easily. Many women have experienced a stronger bond between her and the child during and after the floatation session. Ultimately, it helps in wellbeing of both mother and child. Besides, the complete weight from the back and hip is released.

Students

All the students have to be constantly in the learning phase. The stress and fatigue of exams and assignments adds constant pressure on them. Besides, they have to learn things fast and memorize and reproduce them in the exam hall under the time constraint. Most students get anxious even if they think about the exam.

Floatation therapy can improve the student’s performance in the academic evaluations. It removes stress and anxiety and students can feel refreshed after the floatation session. A calm mind can learn things faster and implement it better.

Travelling People

Some people love travelling, but the physical fatigue and exhaustion can make their situation miserable. Those who constantly travel to long distance due to their work commitments have to face jet lag quite frequently. This adds pressure to the body clocks and ultimately on our health.

To heal this fatigued body and mind, a floatation session really becomes helpful. It puts the body and mind to the deeply relaxed state, which helps in healing and rejuvenating the person completely.

Sportspersons

Sports and athletics are highly competitive fields today. Sportspersons not only have to be top in the fitness but also have to be in the proper mindset and attitude.

Because of the constant exercising schedules, the body of the sports person goes through a lot of wear and tear. Problems like sore feet, backache and joint pains are quite common for the sports person. Also, the mental stress which comes from the competition puts mental stress on the mind.

A sportsperson can feel a calm state of mind and body before his competitive event. He can perform at his optimum level if he is relaxed and body properly rested through the floatation session. After the event, the healing process of body and mind can occur rather faster with the floatation session after the sports event.
