Show Your Love this Valentine’s Day with the Gift of Relaxation

Gift of relaxation

What is Flotation Therapy?


Flotation therapy is a relaxing experience that involves lying in a float tank filled with a warm body-temperature solution of Epsom salts and water. The water’s buoyancy helps reduce the effects of gravity and allows the body to float effortlessly on the surface. The float tank’s darkness and silence also help reduce external sensory input, allowing your mind and body to relax fully.


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re looking for a unique and special gift for your partner, Float Lab’s Floatation Therapy is the perfect way to show your love by giving the gift of relaxation.


Floatation therapy is a unique form of relaxation and stress relief that promotes inner peace and well-being. By floating in a sensory deprivation tank, you’ll experience the freedom of no gravity and be surrounded by warm, calming water.


When you float in Float Lab’s sensory deprivation tank, your body releases a cocktail of ‘happy hormones’ – dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins (known as DOSE). These hormones are responsible for feelings of happiness and relaxation and also help to reduce stress and anxiety. Oxytocin, for example, is the ‘love hormone’ involved in childbirth and breastfeeding. Serotonin helps to regulate mood, sleep, and digestion, and endorphins act as the body’s natural painkillers.


But the benefits of floatation therapy continue. You’ll also benefit from increased clarity of mind, improved focus, and creativity during your float.


The Benefits of Floatation Therapy


Floatation therapy has a host of mental and physical benefits, including:

  • – Stress relief: Floating in a sensory deprivation tank helps reduce cortisol levels, the hormone released when we are feeling under stress.
  • – Improved mindfulness: Floating in a tank can help to increase mindfulness and awareness, allowing for greater clarity and focus.
  • – Increased creativity: Floating can help to increase creativity and improve problem-solving skills.
  • – Pain relief: Floating can help to reduce chronic pain and muscle tension.
  • – Improved sleep: Floating can help to encourage more profound, restful sleep.


How Floatation Therapy Releases Happy Hormones


When you’re in a floatation tank, your body releases four powerful hormones: dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphins. These hormones are known as the “DOSE” hormones, and they can have a profound effect on your mood and well-being.


Dopamine is a chemical released in the brain that makes you feel good. Having the right amount of dopamine is essential for your body and brain.


Oxytocin is a hormone that makes you feel love and trust. It is involved in childbirth and breastfeeding. It’s sometimes known as the ‘love hormone.’


Serotonin is a chemical that carries messages between nerve cells in the brain and throughout your body. Serotonin plays a crucial role in such body functions as mood, sleep, digestion, nausea, wound healing, bone health, blood clotting, and sexual desire.


Endorphins are the body’s natural pain relievers, and they can boost your mood, too.
