Introducing the Evolution Flotation Pod!

Flotation Therapy  COMING SOON!

Many of our clients have been instrumental in developing Alluring and have asked us to add flotation therapy. You have spoken and we are proud to introduce Evolution Flotation Pod!

The History of Floating Invented in the mid 1950's by neuro-scientist Dr. John Lilly, flotation therapy tanks were originally named "sensory deprivation tanks," and sometimes "isolation tanks." Over the years the name was changed to float tanks or flotation therapy tanks.

Float tank therapy is also known as Flotation Therapy and Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST). The environment provided by a float tank triggers your body’s natural relaxation response quickly yet gently. Our rooms are dark, soundproof, and the water temperature matches your body temperature so you feel like you are meditating in mid air! Within the chamber, the water is held at a constant 96 degrees. A flotation pod is pretty simple: it contains 10-14 inches of sterile water around body temperature (filtered after every usage). In the water, there are over 800 lbs of medical-grade Epsom salts to ensure that anyone can float.

Sounds relaxing right? Floating in a flotation tank is certainly calming, but this therapy offers more than simple relaxation.

Here are some additional benefits of floatation therapy

Magnesium sulfate is a mineral that nearly everyone is deficient in. When you float in a flotation tank, your body absorbs these minerals and your body’s magnesium and sulfate levels increase. This helps to calm your nervous system and enhances your body’s natural ability to heal.

The deep relaxation state that you enter when floating helps to reduce stress by lowering cortisol levels. Blood flow is stimulated and endorphins are released. Endorphins are chemicals in the brain that reduce feelings of pain and trigger positive feelings. Studies have shown that flotation therapy can even help with depression. The endorphins released during a float last beyond the float session itself.

The extreme buoyancy that individuals experience when floating is essentially like experiencing anti-gravity. This allows those with joint or muscle pain much needed relief that they cannot get otherwise.

The combination of weightlessness, water temperature, increased blood flow, and endorphins provides relief from migraines. If migraines are caused by restricted blood flow, the increased blood flow experienced during a float session may alleviate migraine symptoms and possibly even prevent migraines from starting.

Floating can improve athletic performance by reducing recovery time between intense workouts. This helps athletes train their bodies faster and condition it harder. Flotation therapy is often recommended by trainers and used by serious athletes.

Flotation therapy has been shown to enhance performance in general. Several studies by Peter Suedfeld of University of British Columbia and Arreed Barabasz of Washington State University show enhancement in human performance of scientific creativity, instrument flight performance, and piano performance.

Flotation therapy has also been proven beneficial for the following:

  • Relieves stress, anxiety and depression

  • Stimulate creativity

  • Decrease muscular tension caused by daily stresses and prolonged sitting

  • Accelerate mental clarity and learning

  • Deepen meditation practices

  • Strengthen the immune system

  • Improve circulation and reduce blood pressure

  • Improve athletic performance

  • Soothe chronic pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, back and neck pain, inflammation and tendonitis

Floating is a wonderful way to nurture your mind, body, and spirit. These positive effects are cumulative, so be sure to float regularly! Always consult with your physician about any medical or psychological concerns you are having.
