You work long and hard. Everyday stresses manifest themselves as pain: back pain, neck pain, aching joints and muscles, debilitating headaches.

Now imagine floating effortlessly in a quiet and dark chamber.  Your heartbeat and breathing slow.  You can’t help but relax completely.  You are weightless, so there is no pressure anywhere on your body.  You find perfect spinal alignment.

Floatation Therapy encourages the production of endorphins, the “runner’s high” hormones which curb sensitivity to pain.  Circulation is improved, lactic acid build-up is decreased, and injuries to muscles and tendons heal more quickly.  Floating helps sufferers of fibromyalgia and rheumatoid conditions, and can relieve migraines.

Floating diminishes the production of the stress hormone cortisol.  This lowers the pulse and blood pressure and allows muscles to relax.  These responses lead to long-term benefits such as a stronger immune system and lowered risk of diseases caused by stress and hypertension.
