Thanks to the solution, the body seems to float on the surface. The water is heated to body temperature, so it is practically not felt. The chamber is light and soundproofed, allowing you to completely escape from external stimuli and plunge into a state of deep relaxation.
During floating, your body drifts on the surface of the water, pain gradually leaves the muscles, the mind clears, and you completely relax the spine. Floating continues for about 30 minutes.
One of the leaders in the science of float therapy is Justin Feinstein, PhD, a clinical neuropsychologist and director of the Float Clinic and Research Center at the Brain Research Institute. He studies the effects of float therapy on people with moderate to severe anxiety.
