What is Floating?

Floating is a practice that allows you to "switch off" all the stimulation of the world. It involves lying in 10 inches of water with 500kg of Epsom Salts dissolved in it. This allows the person to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. The water, the air, and skin are the same temperature so, when the water settles, you don't feel it anymore. 


Due to the buoyancy of the water, all the forces of gravity on the body disappear. By reducing external stimulation your nervous system stops reacting to the surroundings and has an opportunity to rejuvenate and repair the body from the inside. The effects of stress are reversed. 


By flicking the switch to turn off the outside world, your body enters into the perfect environment to regenerate.
