Relaxation ~ Revelation ~ Regeneration
Welcome to Oasis Float
Floatation therapy is a zero gravity environment designed to help your body relax, recover and reset. Backed by scientific research, it’s a tranquil way to soothe and heal the body from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures; the results can be spectacular!
If you were to ask most people who know about floating when it started, they would likely tell you floating started in 1954 when, Dr. John C. Lily, (neurophysiologist and psychoanalyst) created the first float tank. He developed floatation therapy in order to study how the brain would respond while in a sensory deprived environment-known as REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy).
However, history shows floatation has been going on for millennia’s in the Dead Sea. People from all over the world continue to travel to the Dead Sea to float for the experience and the health benefits it offers. A very important mineral the Dead Sea and our float tanks both contain is magnesium.
While there are many forms of magnesium, no doubt, it is essential for our bodies! Magnesium is responsible for over 300 enzymatic processes in the body! A study published in 2016 stated “Approximately 50% of Americans consume less than the estimated average requirement for magnesium and some age groups consume substantially less.” Unfortunately, this amazing mineral is not produced by our bodies. Magnesium is acquired from certain foods, supplements and through skin absorption. Floating allows Magnesium to be absorbed through the skin giving the body the much needed mineral. This is one reason many feel so good after Floating.
Our float pods contain on average 185 gallons of chlorine-free water and 900-1,000 pounds of very high quality USP grade Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate); this combination creates a solution so buoyant, it allows you to float effortlessly and gives a sensation of complete weightlessness. Floating relieves pressure from the joints resulting in full tissue and muscle relaxation giving muscle tension relief.
The water is heated to skin temperature –93.5 degrees–once relaxed it’s almost impossible to tell where the body ends and the water begins, giving a feeling of floating in mid-air.
~Perhaps, for the first time in your life, you can experience total relaxation with deep healing in a private peaceful space.
