Floatation therapy is growing in popularity as people realise the incredible restorative effect in can have on the body and mind. It is said that an hour in a float tank (otherwise known as a sensory deprivation tank) can have the same effect as an 8 hour sleep.
The high content of magnesium in the tank that is absorbed through the skin, combined with the weightless sensation of floating provides a relaxing effect like no other on the physical body. It can help with muscle recovery and releasing stored tension.
The absence of sight and sound combined with that weightless experience can feel similar to floating through space and provides a head space that is so much needed in today’s busy world. Float therapy is becoming popular in assisting those with PTSD and other mental health conditions due its’ calming effect on the mind.
Here in the Illawarra, there are several businesses offering the float tank experience, so why not try it out for yourself?
