GIVE YOUR MIND AND BODY A BREAK, TRY FLOATING!
I (Zsanett) came across floating when doing some research for a completely different blog post. Still working on it, so won't tell you what it will be just yet tho'. ;)
I haven't done a whole big read up on what to expect when using a floating pod, I wanted to be as surprised as possible. And oh boy I was. I have never heard of floating before, but I really wanted to try see what it's all about, so I messaged a company called Floatworks that happens to be right at my new home's doorstep funnily. I only found that out once booked the appointment, that was a funny one. Anyway.
The owner, Chris was kind enough to invite me in for a session. Once I've arrived, the lovely front desk team gave me a quick guidance on how everything works, and took me to my private room. Each of their rooms have their own pod, shower cabin and towels, it's actually lovely to have complete privacy, as it's suggested you float completely naked. The pod is half filled with salt water, salty enough to keep you floating. You can open up the pod-see picture below and close it completely shut once you are in. The lights will go off, and you'll have 10 mins of relaxing beach wave sounds, then the sound stops too and you are left to float. You are advised to concentrate on your breathing and meditate for your 1 hour session. It comes hard to me to do that as I find my mind constantly going on and on about things I have to get done etc. But non the less, I really really enjoyed it, as my body is constantly exhausted due to a very physical work I do alongside blogging. So once I got out I felt very relaxed, my sore muscles felt much better, and my back pain disappeared. I loved it.
Now this whole experience was completely new to me, but you may have of course heard of it before as after a little research I found out it's been around since the 70's.
BENEFITS OF FLOATING
All in all, I can definitely recommend floating, I would like to go back and use this device to help me with my own physical and emotional issues in the future. You can find Floatworks website if you click HERE, where you can find out more about floating, prices and location.
