Source Float offers floatation therapy. Floating has a myriad of documented benefits, including improved health and well-being, deepened meditation, relief of physical pain, mental stress and anxiety, and improved sleep and immune function.
This tool is the floatation tank, an enclosed chamber filled with approximately ten inches of warm saturated solution of Epsom salts. A solution so dense that even the thinnest person floats supine with the entire body at or near the surface of the water.
The buoyancy counteracts the effects of gravity, giving the floater a sensation of weightlessness. The chamber is pitch-black, silent. In the absence of sensory input, the floater feels detached, free, at peace. Most floaters report enhanced mental powers. Virtually everyone finds the experience immensely pleasant. And, as one prominent scientist says, “The tank provides a method of attaining the deepest rest that we have ever experienced.”
During a float, your body is suspended in 10 inches of water that is heated to the same temperature as your skin and contains 1300 lbs. of Epsom salts. The Epsom salts, by themselves, have a wide range of incredible health benefits. Your body fully relaxes and you really don’t realize how un-relaxed your body normally is until it fully unwinds in a float tank – and your mind is free to relax in nothingness, reflect on solutions to your concerns, or simply wander into other realms and states. The ultimate goal is for your brain to achieve a Theta state, which brings forward heightened receptivity, flashes of dreamlike imagery and inspiration.
The results are as unique as each person floating; some experience a simple deep relaxation of their body, some experience profound meditative insights, some see existing pain disappear altogether. The reality for most is somewhere in the middle, but we promise everyone a unique and pleasant experience that is unlike any you’ve tried before.
