Pregnancy and Floating

Pregnancy can be hard on your body as you try to adapt to hormonal changes and extra weight. Soothe your back in water that gives you complete support and the feeling of weightlessness, while giving yourself time to bond with your baby. 

Pregnant women probably get more relief from the floatation spa than anyone else. Lying on a bed, sitting and walking can be extremely uncomfortable for a woman in the later stages of pregnancy due to the massive gravitational strain placed on the body.

Pregnant women find they can totally relax in the tank, relieved from the burden of carrying the baby, due to the gravity-free environment of the tank.

 

Jessica, 2 weeks prior to delivering a 9 lb. baby – “Like a porter putting down a 30 lb. suitcase, Icould stop carrying for a moment. The burden of holding myself and this little inner body upright wasgone, and I could afford the luxury of expanding our relationship." 

 

Bette, 8 months pregnant – “I enjoyed the lightweight feeling and the stillness.

My legs, which are heavy and retaining fluid, felt at one with the water. Floating is certainly a wonderful way to eliminate stress in pregnancy and to combat the heavy feelings found in the body due to pregnancy." 

 

Tina, 8 months pregnant – “While in the tank, the most inateresting part, was the constant movement I was getting from the baby. The baby must have been in complete ecstasy floating away with me. The other part that was most satisfying was the feeling of exhilaration afterwards.

 

* We do, however, recommend that pregnant women avoid floating during the first trimester. If you have any concerns about the effects of floating on your pregnancy, we ask you to consult and get permission from your physician before you float.

Sensory Deprivation -Float Tank

"There are multiple benefits with the Float tank, but perhaps the most beneficial from an Osteopathic stand point, is the sensorial deprivation from the feedback the body gives when under the stress of gravity, bad posture or Mal-alignment; - when all sensory feedback is diminished, the motor responses intended to relieve the pain or aches, which create muscle tension, muscle shortening and muscular spasm, are turned off. Joints respond in a similar way, tending towards a position of ease under stress, which can cause similar responses in the tissues supporting the joint. Once this feedback is eliminated it allows passage of blood flow into areas that are typically deprived of blood and its healing elements, allowing the muscular/ligamentous/nervous/Osseous tissues to heal."

HEALTH BENEFITS OF FLOATATION THERAPY

 

For many years, people around the world have enjoyed both physical and mental benefits of floatation therapy. The Wave Float Room offers you an open peaceful space to escape the stressful and hectic work life. As you are lying down in the pool of water and pure Epsom salt, you will find your body physically float on top of the water, much like the famous salt lake in Jordan’s dead sea. 

In order to have a true sensory deprivation experience, we ensure that the room’s air pressure and temperature is controlled to the 10th degree, as well as controlling the room’s lighting and sound to the desired level. Alternatively, underwater music and color light therapy can be added if preferred. From top to bottom, your body will stay at rest and at ease. Meanwhile, your brain is able to relax and get into a meditative state – perhaps even getting the famous elusive theta state. For the newcomers, it can be proven to be a one of a kind and magical experience

We are aware that users enter the Wave Float Room for a multitude of reasons, the benefits of a flotation therapy can be appreciated and enjoyed for days to come. Here are just some examples.
