The Float SPA Pod offers an unparalleled experience and numerous benefits for your mind and body. Float pod therapy can help reduce stress, improve sleep, reduce pain, and provide relief from a number of chronic issues. At U Med Spa in Kearney, we can provide you with the personalized and relaxing care you need using the Float SPA Pod.
What Is Float Therapy?
Float therapy, also known as floating or REST (restricted environmental stimulation therapy), refers to spending a designated amount of time suspended in a relaxing atmosphere free of light, sound, and other distractions.
A float pod allows you to experience a new way to calm your mind, relax your body, and refresh your spirit. Floatation therapy introduces you to a near-weightless environment where your entire body enters a whole new level of relaxation. Float pod therapy can last for an hour, which provides your body with the rest it needs and allows your mind and every single muscle to recuperate.
The Float SPA Pod is filled with a heavily saturated solution of water and Epsom salt. A large amount of Epsom salt is used to raise the density and buoyancy of the water in the pod. This allows the body to effortlessly float in the solution. The solution is skin temperature and the pod maintains this temperature throughout the entire duration of the session. Inside the pod is a sensory free environment. There is no light, sound or smell, and no gravity to weigh the body down.
The Benefits of Float Therapy
Float therapy provides a number of benefits for your body and mind. While effortlessly floating in the tank, all the weight and pressure that is usually placed on the joints and muscles of the body is gone allowing the body to fully relax. This helps to alleviate any pain and discomfort caused by tension and stress. Float therapy can also help during the recovery process following injury to the body.
The calming and sensory-free environment within the pod, along with the skin temperature liquid allows for total immersion into a relaxed and meditative state. Removing all external stimuli allows the brain to enter a “Theta” brainwave state. This state is the same one experienced during meditation, yoga, hypnosis, and other forms of relaxation training.
Float pod therapy provides stress relief by minimizing the production of cortisol—the stress hormones. At the same time, it can trigger better physical and mental health by producing more endorphins—the happy hormones.
Float therapy can help to:
- Reduce Stress
- Improve cognitive performance
- Improve memory
- Reduce anxiety
- Improve sleep
- Increase productivity
An hour of sleep in the float pod has the same restorative effect as four hours of normal sleep. And because floating triggers the natural healing powers of the body, it involves no processed medications of any kind.
Providing a Clean and Safe Environment for Float Therapy
The Float SPA Pod is a premium floating tank system. The pod contains an advanced filtration system making it the most hygienic option for float therapy. The pod is designed to self-drain after each session. All of the water is drained from the tank so that the tank is clean and dry prior to the start of the session. Once the next patient is preparing for the float therapy session, the tank begins to fill. The water that fills the tank is triple filtered to ensure it is as sanitized and pure as possible. U Med Spa is dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of our patients and our facility is maintained to the highest of standards.
Ideal Candidates for Float Pod Treatment
Floating is for anyone who suffers from body pains such as back pain and neck pain, as well as feelings of anxiety, stress, or depression. As long you are not claustrophobic, this could be the perfect therapy for you.
Your Float Pod Therapy Consultation
An initial consultation with our wellness team is needed to ensure floating is the right option for you. During this consultation, we will ask you about your goals for the treatment, and you will be able to ask any questions you may have.
Before your treatment session, it’s best to avoid caffeine for around four hours. Anything that causes skin to become more sensitive, like waxing or tanning, should also be avoided.
What Is a Float Pod Treatment Session Like?
There is no pre-treatment needed for float pod therapy. Before entering the float pod, you will be asked to rinse off. All you have to do next is lie back in the tank and allow yourself to relax.
Spending an hour in the float pod is all you need to get feel relaxed and enjoy the treatment’s benefits. Patients leave feeling refreshed and serene after the therapy. There is no required recovery period or aftercare following the treatment session.
How Much Does a Float Pod Treatment Session Cost?
You can experience the benefits of float pod therapy at a relatively affordable cost. Ask about full price details during your consultation.
