What is floating?
💦My first float!💦
I was intrigued about "floating" and was excited there was a place in my city that offer it! For those of you that are not familiar with it, you basically float in warm water filled with epsom salt (about 1100lbs of it to be exact) in a pod or chamber that can be pitch black and in complete silence (but you have the option to have lights on and music on if you wish).
Having no sound, no light and weightlessness; it benefits your nervous system because you cut out the constant sensory information that requires and you go from your sympathetic nervous system predominating (think: fight or flight, stress and anxiety) to your parasympathethic nervous system predominating (think; rest and digest & calm and conceive)
And of course the benefits for the salt water on your detoxification systems.
During the float @flowspaon, I felt uber relaxed, I thought I would be claustrophobic, but wasn't and I also thought I may be cold being in the water for a hour, but was quite warm and comfortable. I opted to have lights off and no music after the first 10 mins. I got into a deep meditative state and felt how it can really rejuvenate the entire system and help with decreasing STRESS! Thus helping your adrenals, burn out, digestive concerns and fatigue.🙌🏼
It was a great experience towards the last few days of vacay.. I truly got to let go and unplug🙏🏼
