Float Therapy

 

Float Therapy - Marathon Acupuncture & Float Therapy in Marathon, Florida Keys

Float. Relax. Renew. 

Classically known as sensory deprivation, float therapy relieves the senses and stills the mind. Floating is therapeutic to sore muscles, joint inflammation and high blood pressure. 

The zero-gravity environment is a powerful tool for wellness, relaxation, pain relief and better sleep. Regular use enhances the healing process. Stress, tension and pain have formed over time and will take some time to experience the greatest relief—luckily, floating is a relaxing, fun,and effortless way to do so!

Float therapy offers relief and benefits which are cumulative—they build on themselves with each subsequent session. We like to say “the more you float, the better it gets”, as floats themselves deepen beyond the first session. Though flotation is an “effortless” therapy, the body and mind actually learn how to relax into the float with each session.

For these reasons, we encourage guests to return to floating more than once, and to receive sessions on a regular basis to maintain their benefits.

The Float Room

Angela Roth, L.Ac. offers Acupuncture, Float, Injections, Cupping, Herbals in Marathon, Florida Keys

The room is large enough for a couple to float in 10-inches of water with 1300 pounds of Epsom salts creating a buoyant environment that negates the pull of gravity on our muscles and joints. The salts will release muscle tension, pain and lower blood pressure just by floating. The air and water are controlled at 94 degrees to contribute to the unique sensation of floating when  our sensory receptors in our skin  lose where the water ends and the air begins.

Choose to experience sensory deprivation by going dark and soundless while floating or enjoy the ambient light and pipe in calm music of your choice from your device.

What is floating?

Enter tank filled with 250 gallons of water, 1300 LBS of Epsom Salts (read magnesium sulfate) which shuts down 90% of neuro-muscular feedback, flushes toxins and lactic acid out of the muscles, and lowers blood pressure. The temperature is controlled at 94 degrees, air and water, which contributes to the unique and amazing sensation of floating by shutting down sensory receptors on your skin. Floating is relaxing by default but also reduces inflammation, anxiety and relieves joint and muscle pain. Bring your device with some calming music and zen out.
