Why You Are About To Fall In Love With Float Therapy In Ringwood

What used to be rather horribly referred to as “isolation” or “sensory deprivation” has reemerged as the far more fascinating “flotation therapy.” Now, people looking to have some sort of quality distressing and mental relaxation therapy can bounce and float alone in an enclosed pod filled with adequate Epsom salt water to enough to keep them tenderly suspended on the water’s surface.

As with any therapy, regular use of float therapy in Ringwood comes with some exciting benefits such as improved sleep, pain relief, relaxation, and wellness. In case you don’t know, many of those who have tried this therapy have been just blown away by not only the kind of treatment they receive but by the way they felt in their body and mind after spending some time floating.

In case you are still not convinced about the goodness of participating in a float therapy in Ringwood, there are some more reasons why floatation could be your next big thing.

Enough space
Floating tanks used to be akin to little chambers which were not always recommended for those who are claustrophobic. However, it may please you to know that things are no longer the same anymore. Now, there are flotation tanks that are wider and taller than they used to be. Anyways, the therapy itself doesn’t require you to stand in the first place. You only just need to lie down while the water carries you thereby making no room for mental clutter.

Absolutely private
Urban Float Ringwood has 4 individual float rooms all with their own shower and changing area, everything is provided for your comfort, towels, earplugs, Herbal shampoo and conditioner, soap free body wash and all are animal free testing.

Absolute suspension
Every float therapy in Ringwood will give you an enjoyable feeling of absolute suspension. Thanks to the presence of a shallow pool that contains 600 kg of Epsom salt dissolved in about 700 litres of water set at body temperature. Music is introduced to help the mind relaxes and goes off as soon as relaxation occurs. Interestingly, you cannot be distracted by the noise coming from outside as the unit is entirely designed to be soundproof.

Lights are optional
You may turn on the lights if you choose to or just float in total darkness as is the case with traditional float therapy. In most modern facilities, lights go off automatically after 5 minutes of stepping in. however, you are allowed to decide on the amount of light you require for a soothingly dim experience.
