Float Therapy Spa Ocean Township NJ
Float therapy is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and better sleep.
Anyone with stress induced or related diseases, such as hypertension, ulcers, heart disease, and many others, the flotation tank offers a mental solution to the physical symptom, and goes after the problem at its source. By combating the stress, which is at the root of these issues, flotation tanks help to heal the body and the mind. Even more abstract mental issues, such as depression, psychological issues, even PTSD, have been shown to be alleviated in the tank environment due to shifts in brain chemistry.
For many conditions, flotation therapy offers an alternative to medicinal, or “pill therapy” which has become the default in our culture. Flotation therapy offers a safe, natural, and scientifically researched alternative, or enhancement to many conditions plaguing our modern-day culture.
Float therapy offers relief and benefits which are cumulative—they build on themselves with each subsequent session. We like to say “the more you float, the better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first session. Though flotation is an “effortless” therapy, the body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.
Epsom Salts are great for your skin, hair, nails, and act as an exfoliate. They aid in joint pain, ease stress, and naturally relax the body. Magnesium (commonly missing from our diets) is absorbed through the skin, while Sulfate eliminates toxins and heavy metals, naturally detoxing the body.
- Weightlessness / Counter-Gravity Stimulation
Welcome to floating, which can provide up to 100% pain relief. The spine naturally elongates and straightens, and the body undergoes the same regeneration process that transpires during sleep. Lactic acid is drained from the muscles, reducing soreness and recovery time.
- Meditation / Theta-State
Taking an hour of alone time (meditation), will decrease the production of cortisone, a stress hormone, leaving us feeling refreshed and serene after the float. The brain enters an elusive theta brain-wave state, associated with deep sleep and dreaming.
The healing benefits of relaxation have long been documented, the intense relaxation of floatation therapy is unique to the low-gravity environment that floatation tank provides. This environment leads to more profound relaxation, and allows our bodies to recuperate faster and more thoroughly.
Being in a low-gravity, totally silent and pitch black environment gives the mind time to relax as well. This mental release is almost the opposite of stress, and allows the brain to stop allocating its resources to processing the experience of all of our senses, producing profoundly positive mental effects and releasing a surge of positive neurochemicals.
