Sensory Deprivation Tanks
I have been a massage therapist for 5 years now and owner of Remedy Me Spa LLC. I offer Relaxation Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage(with Myofascial Release Techniques), Plantar Fasciitis, Certified Pregnancy Massage, Cupping, Hot Stone Massage, Couples Massage and much more. I am also able to handle clients with more chronic issues such as Wounded Warriors, rehab patients, my fellow LMT’s, and even Crossfit athletes. My goal is to help people relieve the stress and knots from their everyday lives and to educate them on how to better maintain their bodies in a more holistic manner.
Resting in a float spa greatly reduces the force of gravity on the body. Reduced gravity eases pressure on joints and muscles. Energy is reserved when we spend less time resisting the forces of gravity, our bodies can then use this surplus of energy in expediting healing processes.
Today’s fast paced society bombards our lives with nearly constant stimulation, leaving us physically overwhelmed and exhausted. The body's “fight or flight” response is essentially continuously firing. Floating dampens the senses and this allows us to turn off these automatic responses to constant stimuli. The body and mind are able to completely relax and decompress. This true relaxation can have a hugely positive impact on stress-related disorders and can aid in mental processes.
Magnesium Sulfate, also known as epsom salt, is a chemical compound comprised of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen. It has hundreds of uses throughout the body, including regulation of cell-signaling pathways. Over three hundred enzymes in the body require magnesium for various cellular functions. An estimated sixty-eight percent of American adults are magnesium deficient. Magnesium sulfate can be ingested as a dietary supplement, though it is most efficient and effective when absorbed through the skin, such as during floatation therapy.
What to Expect
There are 1000 pounds of salt holding you up in the tank, so do not fret about not being able to hold yourself up to float. This is designed to do all the work for you.
Cold natured or worried about being cold? The water and air temp in the pod is kept at 94.1 degrees, it is the temperature of your skin. This helps you relax more, not knowing where your body ends and the the water begins.
Worried that you will be distracted? Not going to happen here. Your ears are just below the water line, however, we have a head float and noodles to aid in holding your head/body for more comfort if needed. This is a major plus while pregnant, YES! you can float pregnant!
The pods are in ambient lighting, this is to turn your brain off and help you settle in. Once you turn the light off you will be allowed to float in total darkness.
