Imagine floating in 1000 pounds of salt water in a specially designed tank. You can choose full sensory deprivation in quiet darkness or select relaxing sounds. I find it really does give me “true rest” and a lovely way to let go, meditate, or use my imagination. I think others would love to try it so I decided to donate a gift to Simply Living ($89 value or first float $65) so others could give it a try. If this is your first float, you can learn all about floating with a video animation and details about what to bring and how to prepare for the adventure.
Scheduling is very easy. The spa includes multiple rooms, all private, and a shower to use before and after the float. They include ear plugs and flip flops and they take all the Covid precautions. First time floaters get an orientation and video to prepare for the experience, so you need to come 30 minutes early. I go to the Float Spa in Easton but there is another one in Powell.
Here is info from the company that I took from their website.
MORE THAN JUST PROFOUND RELAXATION
The near-weightless environment of floating allows for the muscles and joints of the body to relax, increasing blood flow and helping to more quickly repair muscle tissues and heal the body.
LESS PAIN, BETTER IMMUNITY, FASTER RECOVERY
Floating gives your immune system the opportunity to shift into a higher gear and our bodies physically rest and recover more quickly in a floatation tank, up to four times faster, in fact. This means that you can train yourself harder and reap the benefits of slower recovery times with the use of a float tank.
LOW GRAVITY, TOTALLY SILENT AND PITCH BLACK
The lack of external stimuli is extremely rare in modern society. Floating offers an unparalleled psychological benefit of a feeling of inner peace, and is a perfect complement to many alternative wellness regimens.
A DREAMLIKE STATE OF MIND IN JUST ONE HOUR
Sensory deprivation allows the mind to enter into the theta state supporting an increase in feelings of creativity, improved sleep patterns and incredible feelings of euphoria and mental relaxation. Come visit our convenient Columbus location at Easton.
