Have you been looking to improve your sleep, blood circulation and just relax? Our lives have become busier than ever, so we must remember to take some time out for ourselves.
If you’re looking for pure relaxation, you should try our floatation room here at Unique Day Spa. Floatation rooms are designed for the ultimate relaxation experience, with the soft dry membrane technology providing a feeling of total weightlessness.
Below we’ll look at the specifics of a floatation room and why you should try one.
Floatation (also known as sensory deprivation) is the act of floating in without the constant noise of the world. It is scientifically proven to increase physical and mental wellbeing. In no time, it leaves you feeling happier and relaxed, with fewer aches and pains. There are many benefits to floating, including:
Improves sleep and insomnia
Floating can help bring your parasympathetic system back into balance, and the reduction of cortisol and adrenaline has been shown to give you a deeper and more restorative sleep. Floating can aid the body in maintaining healthier melatonin levels, a hormone that helps the transition to sleep each night.
Helps relieve physical pain
Floating helps promote beta-endorphin secretion (also known as the body’s natural painkillers) This can provide a quick, and profound improvement in perceived pain.
Helps the body heal from exercise and injury
Floating can promote vasodilation, which means that your blood vessels dilate to allow better blood flow and ease high blood pressure. This means your body can flush out lactic acid after workouts and helps you recover from sore muscles, pain, and stiffness.
Improves stress and anxious thinking
Life can be overwhelming at times. The constant news streams, work, social media, and family life can all create a constant state of stress. This stress can increase the risk of high blood pressure, anxiety disorder, recovery time, and sleep quality and can even lead to physical pain. Floating has consistently been shown to reduce pain, anxiety, and depression, as well as improve sleep quality, and general well-being.
There can be various types of floatation room, but our dry floatation room consists of a dry membrane pod that encourages a feeling of weightlessness whilst keeping you totally dry.
This helps you to eliminate as many of the external senses as possible.
By eliminating these senses you can unwind, destress and completely relax in a space designed specifically for that.
There are different places to float, including float tanks, float pods, and float rooms. But why choose to float in a dry pod?
The simple answer is you can achieve the same experience of total weightlessness, sensory deprivation and relaxation without the added hassle of getting wet.
Also, when entering deep relaxation, you become more sensitive to temperature and dry floatation pods can maintain a stable temperature which leads to a more comfortable float experience.
How long you should float will greatly depend on the person.
It can be a difficult process to teach the brain and body to relax. For some it can be instantaneous, for others it’s an ongoing process.
Consider your own temperament and talk to spa staff about what you feel is best for you.
