OXFORD'S PREMIERE DESTINATION FOR FLOAT THERAPY

ABOUT FLOAT THERAPY

WHAT IS FLOATING?

Float  therapy is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and  better sleep. As with any therapy, with regular use its benefits are  enhanced. Stress, tension and pain have formed over time and will take  some time to experience the greatest relief—luckily, floating is a  relaxing, fun,and effortless way to do so!

Float therapy offers  relief and benefits which are cumulative—they build on themselves  with each subsequent session. We like to say “the more you float, the  better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first session.  Though flotation is an “effortless” therapy, the body and mind actually  learn how to relax into the float with each session.

For these  reasons, we encourage guests to return to floating more than once, and  to receive sessions on a regular basis to maintain their benefits.

Pain Management

Float therapy presents an alternative to addressing injuries, chronic  conditions, and sore muscles. The low-gravity environment allows for  blood vessels to dilate and nutrients to flow faster to areas in need,  accelerating recovery time and allowing the body to heal more naturally  and efficiently. Athletic injuries, arthritis, inflammation, and fibromyalgia pain relief have all been documented via use of the tank.

stress relief

Research shows floating dramatically reduces the presence of  cortisol, the hormonal steroid associated with stress, and instead  stimulates the release of dopamine in it’s place. Mitigating stress  hormones enhances immune functions and alleviates stress related  influences such as anxiety and depression.

Floating is like a multivitamin for the brain. By minimizing external  distractions the mind is able to focus its attention inward, discovering  and analyzing habitual thought patterns and leading to vast  introspection. Learned oversight of these thoughts can lead to enhanced  creativity, visualization, and rejuvenation.

Mindfulness

By eliminating the effects of external stimuli, the body’s sympathetic  nervous system (fights or flight response) has a chance to relax,  allowing brainwaves to slow into a Theta State. This level of  consciousness promotes mental rejuvenation and is often sought through a  dedicated meditative practice.

Other benefits

Floating also assists in heightened senses, increased immune function as well as helping with sleeplessness or insomnia.
