First-time floaters generally pronounce it as one the most enjoyable experiences of their lives, although it may take 3 to 5 float sessions before an individual becomes fully acclimatized to the tank environment. During the first few float sessions, massive amounts of accumulated muscle and nervous tension – often unconsciously “locked into” the body – are discharged, allowing the body to begin to restore and optimize its natural metabolic balance.
The law of diminishing returns does not apply to floating. The float tank triggers a natural physical reaction in the body known as the parasympathetic response. Every time you float, this response is reinforced. Regular floating produces cumulative benefits as the body “learns” to relax deeply.
The frequency of floating is also a matter of individual preference or requirement. Individuals who lead high-pressure lifestyles (athletes, business people, creative artists, performers and other professionals) may wish to float at least once or twice a week to keep mind and body in perfect tune. Similarly, there are situations in everyone’s life which create special demands – such as starting a new job, studying for exams, recovering from illness, injury, pregnancy, extra-long working hours, (to name but a few) – where deep relaxation is particularly beneficial or even essential.
We instinctively know that in every aspect of our daily lives – our work, our personal relationships, our leisure activities – things go better when we are
relaxed. The Zero Gravity Float Room gives you immediate access to the natural rewards of deep sensory relaxation – the purest form of relaxation on Earth.
