Let your worries float away at Goodsense Health & Happiness Wellness Center. Among our many health and wellness services, we now offer flotation therapy to the people of Stettler and the surrounding areas. Floating is a way to pause the hectic, saturated world and enter a state of deep mental and physical relaxation. By giving yourself a break from the endless input of sensory experiences, your mind has a chance to recharge, rest, and emerge to face the world with renewed perspective and energy.
The flotation tank is approximately 8ft x 5ft, filled with over 850 lbs. of Epsom salt dissolved in the water. The water is denser than the Dead Sea, so you will float right on top. This means that, after normalizing to the silky water, you will have no tactile input on your skin and no pressure points running along your body. You will be fully supported, and you will expend no physical energy to maintain your position in the water.
Flotation-REST (restricted environmental stimulation technique) or sensory deprivation is backed by research and offers immense potential for personal growth and healing. Studies indicate that floating helps to increase mental clarity, decrease stress, and enhance problem solving skills. Additionally, floating in body temperature water can help to improve circulation as well as the distribution of oxygen and nutrients which in turn can help reduce blood pressure, regulate electrolytes, and ease muscle pain.
At Goodsense Health & Happiness Wellness Center, we own and operate one of the only Epsom salt float tanks in the Stettler area. If you are wondering if flotation therapy is right for you, feel free to give us a call. We are more than happy to answer your questions.
