You’ve heard by now that floatation therapy or “floating” is an alternative therapy that can help you with anxiety, natural pain relief, improved athletic performance, and even improve your work productivity. While even just one session in a float tank can be incredibly beneficial, the results of floatation therapy can also be cumulative.
While many of our clients feel great results from their first float, the first time can be a bit nerve wracking until you understand how the process of floating works. With each subsequent session, you can appreciate the deeper effects of floatation therapy.
Whether you use floating as a way to relax, relieve pain, or to boost creativity, the results will deepen with regular use.
How often should I float?
While you can float every day without harm, we find that the relaxing effects of a one-hour float typically last 2-4 days. For best results, we recommend regular sessions, and many clients find that floating once or twice a week provides the most benefits.
If you’re looking to maximize the benefits, you can become a member and add floating to your wellness routine. Here’s a guide for how to start:
1 float a month
Just like a regular checkup is a part of a well-rounded self-care practice, a monthly float can be a great way to establish a baseline for wellness. Floating once per month is ideal for people with busy lifestyles and is a budget-friendly way to make space for yourself and your health. You can use your monthly float as an opportunity to check in with yourself regularly and even set goals or reflect on the previous month.
2 floats a month
Two floating sessions a month can be a perfect way to maintain your current level of health – think of it as a maintenance float! You can allow yourself to catch up on rest, realign your spine, and give yourself a regular boost of energy to help keep going. If you sit a lot at work, or experience mild chronic pain, this schedule might be a great fit for you.
4 floats a month
A weekly float can be the ticket to relief for folks with chronic pain, a very active lifestyle, or for people looking to get to the next level in their athletic or mental performance. Weekly floating can also be valuable to people with insomnia or other disorders, or just those in need of a weekly boost of relaxation and healing.
Since the effects of floating build over time, daily floating is ideal for folks who are ready to transform their lives with the effects of floating. This schedule is perfect for people who are recovering from an injury/surgery, or who are dealing with severe chronic pain. Floating is a full experience, benefiting body, mind, and spirit, so anyone who is ready for a dramatic change will feel the results of a daily floating practice.
