HOW DOES FLOW THERAPY WORK?
Lying on the back in a floating bridge filled with water at body temperature and infused with 1,200 lbs of Epsom pharmaceutical salt you float effortlessly, experiencing zero gravity. Epsom salt is a natural mineral ingredient composed of magnesium and sulphate, both very well absorbed by the skin which acts as an exfoliant, being beneficial for the skin, nails and hair. With the help of this ingredient, joint pain is diminished, as well as stress, and the body enters a state of deep relaxation by floating. The salt contributes to the prevention of inflammation in the muscles and joints, the treatment of sprains and the reduction of muscle fever.
Floating is as safe as possible, so you can enjoy even a deep sleep. By floating, you will be able to relax your entire muscles and, due to the position, your spine will stretch and you will benefit from a regeneration process of the whole body. An hour of zero gravity will reduce the hormone cortisol, for which stress is responsible. In addition, the water temperature is the same as that of the body, which will make you feel like floating on a cloud.
