Float therapy, a renowned method for relaxation, owes much of its efficacy to a special ingredient—Epsom salt. The float tank, where this therapy takes place, is filled with a concentrated Epsom salt solution, enhancing buoyancy and providing a unique sensory experience.
Why Epsom salt specifically? While it might seem similar to regular rock salt, Epsom salt, defined as “crystals of hydrated magnesium sulfate,” boasts distinctive properties. The key lies in its magnesium content, a vital macronutrient often overlooked in daily nutrition.
The benefits of Epsom salt, particularly its magnesium component, are manifold:
1. Stress Reduction: Magnesium regulates adrenaline levels, aiding in stress reduction and promoting relaxation.
2. Detoxification: Epsom salt activates cells, facilitating the removal of toxins from the bloodstream, promoting a natural detox process.
3. Digestive Health: Magnesium in Epsom salt relaxes gut and colon muscles, easing constipation and promoting improved digestion.
4. Muscle Relief: Serving as a natural calcium blocker, magnesium helps muscles relax, preventing cramps and alleviating muscle pain.*
Immersing yourself in a float tank with Epsom salt allows for efficient magnesium absorption, enhancing these health benefits. Urban Float offers tailored floatation tank experiences in Melbourne.
