Floatation therapy, or simply “floating”, has been around since the 1950’s and was created by scientists as a means to explore consciousness. What is consciousness and where does it come from? These questions are just the tip of the iceberg. Many cultures have explored these questions from different perspectives and with different methods including qigong, mysticism, and ayahuasca.
Floating is an effortless way to soothe and heal the body from the constant stress of life’s daily pressure. You can leave the noise and confusion behind and perhaps, for the first time in your life, experience total relaxation and deep healing in your own private, peaceful space.
Some people say it’s like getting a massage without being touched, others say it’s like floating in outer space. The one thing I know to be true is that it’s something you have to try in order to understand. It’s an experience like no other on this earth.
In addition to being incredibly relaxing, floatation therapy has wonderful benefits such as:
- Stress reduction
- Anxiety relief
- Sports recovery
- Pain relief
- To promote relaxation
- Reduce headaches
- Increased circulation
- For more restful sleep
- To learn to meditate
Float North, is a place to heal, to reconnect, to explore consciousness, and to recover from our modern life.
