Why Float Therapy
Relax and clear your mind with a float therapy session from Symmetry Float. Float therapy simulates zero gravity by dissolving 1700 lbs of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) into approximately 200 gallons of water in an 18-inch tank. There are several important benefits to creating this dense salt water solution. The most immediately recognizable benefit is that a person floating in a float tank will float like a cork in only 10 inches of water, with their face and top of their body poking out of the water. This is regardless of the person’s body type or their ability to float in a swimming pool.
Relax & Enjoy
As opposed to a swimming pool where gravity is lowered, gravity in a float tank is essentially nullified by the extreme buoyancy caused by the dissolved Epsom salt. This provides a rare opportunity for people who are suffering from various types of joint and/or muscle pain. Without the constant pressure of gravity, a person resting in a floatation tank is able to relax and unwind more thoroughly than even the most comfortable bed allows.
Float Therapy Releases Endorphins
Taking a break from gravity in a floatation tanks also causes fascinating and significant changes in the brain. Endorphins are released. These are powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being while further enhancing the healing benefits of the zero gravity environment.
