Our bodies are amazing aren’t they? Every day we get up, our blood flows, our hearts beat and our muscles and bones move us forward. We do this with no real thought and take for granted the fact that every moment we are being pounded on by an invisible force - GRAVITY!

Now don’t get us wrong, gravity is a good thing since it keep us from floating away. But the same force that keeps us earthbound is also a force that exerts a constant downward pressure on our bodies.  

Gravity has an effect on just about every aspect of the body, day and night. Ever wonder why people shrink over time? Gravity. Did you know that astronauts actually grow an average of 2 inches while in space? Why? Lack of gravity. 

In our ultra modern sensory deprivation float tanks, the water is infused with over 1,200 pounds of Epsom salts. This hyper concentration creates an environment where you can float effortlessly, thereby mimicking a low gravity environment. This lower gravitational pull allows your body to finally get the rest it needs. The perfect isolation of our float tank allows the body to heal faster, flow blood more easily and ease the pains of everyday wear and tear. 


Epsom salts have their own healing benefits. Epsom salts are actually magnesium rich salts and have been shown to be absorbed by the skin. And here’s the best part, magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function and helping to prevent artery hardening.

Talk about a double whammy, low gravity and magnesium, what a combination! From increased blood circulation (your heart isn’t fighting against gravity to get blood to your brain), deep muscle relaxation (without someone kneading and karate chopping your back), to relief from constant pain (without drugs) floating can offer something to help heal every body.
