How Often Should I Float?
Discover the weekly float advantage!
This is one of the questions we get asked regularly. For those seeking, stress, pain, or insomnia relief, we always recommend scheduling 1 float a week for 6 weeks to get started and discover the Weekly Float Advantage. The benefits of floating are definitely cumulative, both physically and mentally. Check out our weekly membership option to help you reach your specific goals.
I started to analyze one day (remember I am an engineer so always analyzing data, trends, and patterns) which clients had the biggest transformation in their lives over the course of the past three years that we have been open. What I quickly realized was that the people who float weekly by far have seen the best results and the biggest improvements in their quality of life. Ideally, we have seen that floating on the same day and time each week provides the best results, where your body remembers the float experience and starts to crave it if you for some reason you happen to miss one.
What are the cumulative benefits of float therapy?
- Optimizing the magnesium concentration in your body (Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate — did you know that magnesium is required for over 300 of your metabolic processes?) to help reduce stress, alleviate pain and inflammation, and improve sleep.
- Giving your body a break from gravity — Floating takes all the pressure off your back and joints which reduces pain and inflammation.
- As you get more comfortable, your brain waves start to change from beta to theta during your float and you are eventually able to experience the benefits of meditation.
Committing to your weekly float routine is just as important as committing to your weekly fitness routine. Even if you need to skip a day at the gym to get your float in, that will improve your overall health. If you are the kind of person that likes to measure things (like me), check out the Oura ring. It tracks your sleep, readiness, activity, and tells you when you need a recovery day. How does it track these things? It uses sensors to track heart rate variability, heart rate, and body temperature. Many of the professional and college athletes are using this to optimize their workouts to keep them at their best readiness each day. For the average person like me and you, this means improving your day to day quality of life, how your body feels, and your effectiveness. It will be easy for you to see the effects of your float and commit to a routine once you start measuring the results.
As I set out to price the weekly membership, I wanted it to be able to easily fit into our client’s budgets by offsetting other things that they were currently using to manage their stress, pain, and insomnia each day. If you commit to floating weekly, you will likely no longer need caffeine to start your day and wine to close out your day. How will this help your wallet? Starbucks is about $5/day X 7 days/week = $35/week. An inexpensive bottle of wine is $15+. Add those together and you are at $50/week. Our weekly membership is only $47/week and it is going to provide so many other benefits for you.
