A Float will not only provide you relief from any loud stimuli but also the anti-inflammatory properties of the Epsom salt will help reduce the throbbing pain that comes with a migraine.
Have you ever worked out too hard? Or didnt stretch enough before that first ball game of the year? Most people have heard that you should have a bath with some Epsom salt right? Well how about a bath with 1000 times the amount of Epsom salt that you can use at home!

If you suffer from an anxiety disorder, or if you are just anxious about that big day you got coming up, a Float has been shown to reduce anxiety and can be just as effective as popular anxiety medications can be. There have been studies performed at LIBR (Laureate Institute for Brain Research) where they have built a float center inside the research facility to better study the benefits of Float Therapy. Here is a video of the Lead researcher on Float Therapy at LIBR where he spoke at last year's international Float conference.
"Magnesium can suppress the ability of the hippocampus to stimulate the ultimate release of stress hormone, it can reduce the release of ACTH (the hormone that tells your adrenal glands to get in gear and pump out that cortisol and adrenaline), and it can reduce the responsiveness of the adrenal glands to ACTH. In addition, magnesium can act at the blood brain barrier to prevent the entrance of stress hormones into the brain. All these reasons are why I call magnesium "the original chill pill.""- An excerpt from an article on how magnesium alone can help relieve stress. Full article can be read here
On top of the magnesium absorption, you are also shutting out the outside world where most if not all of our stress comes from in one way or another. Combine this with the feeling of utter relaxation and your stress will melt away!
Ever been sick of hearing your phone ding, or beep or ring? Or having to talk to that co-worker that is just a little too chipper all the time? Maybe you are working two jobs? Or are a parent?
