Pregnancy is a stunning example of how phenomenally our bodies work. We are amazing, but let’s be honest here ladies, not all expectant Mothers feel so amazing towards the second or third trimester! We’re constantly searching for the most beneficial advice to relieve the strain on our bodies or just relax, which in itself can be confusing and very conflicting.
But here’s the good news…..Floatation Therapy can ease most pregnancy-related gripes and leave you feeling amazingly relaxed & rejuvenated, giving your entire body a sense of total weightlessness. But it’s not all about us even if we think it should be 😉 If we feel fantastic and calm it can also enhance the bonding process for Dad-To-Be too.
93% of our communication is non-verbal and we pick up on the energies of those we spend time around. If you’re feeling great so will Dad & Baby, if you’re feeling worried or stressed, Dad & Baby will feel it too, so Floatation therapy really can provide marvellous extended results.
Flotation therapy creates a relaxing environment, which helps you to escape from the outside world. Floating is proven to increase feelings of serenity and relaxation, and it helps people to feel less tense, stressed and anxious.
Floating can help you to relax your body and your mind, and is a perfect release after a long day at work. At Float UK we offer evening flotation sessions for you to relax after a busy day!
Flotation can help to alleviate:
Exhaustion & Headaches
Stress and tension
aches, pains and tense muscles
Chest pain & rapid heartbeats
frequent colds and infections
High blood pressure and many more associated ailments
The amazing benefits of Floatation Therapy have been taken very seriously by medical professors around the world. This is a phenomenon in terms of how counter-productive Floatation Therapy is and here are just two reasons;
Firstly, the anti-gravity aspect of floating in a warm solution means that for the first time, you are totally weightless and your muscles and soft tissues have the ability to expand to their fullest capacity. This then has a ricochet effect on the rest of your body which allows greater oxygen & blood flow and releases tension in areas compressed by gravity.
Secondly, Epsom Salts are and have been hailed as one of the most effective healing & anti-inflammatory properties for as long as we can remember. It soothes aching muscles, creates the buoyancy to support your full weight and it was recently confirmed, that the best way to gain a transfusion of Magnesium Sulphate is in fact through the skin. How many boxes does that tick already?
We’ve put a little list together of examples of common ailments which Floatation Therapy is really beneficial to:
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as ME)
Eradicating Toxins from the body
Relieve stress & anxiety which accompanies pain
Reduce the effects of Whip Lash, Arthritis & Fibromyalgia
My husband surprised me with a Float session at 13 weeks pregnant having heard it was a great therapy during pregnancy. Off the back of that session, I booked a package to spread out during the rest of my pregnancy. Floating during pregnancy is an amazing experience and something I would recommend to everyone when expecting.
When you get further into pregnancy, especially the third trimester, you feel heavy and tired so the weightlessness you feel in the float tank is extremely relieving and you really do feel like you have much more energy after a session. I have also suffered from some Sciatica and floating allows my hips to fully relax and realign. However all those benefits aside, just being able to lay safely on your back in the dark for any period of time is worth every single penny!
I had my prize-winning float today and all I can say is wow! What an experience. Beautiful Clean and welcoming, the venue sets you up for a wonderfully relaxing time and that is before you get to experience ‘The Pod’. For a whole hour, I was completely pain-free and totally relaxed in a warm and serene environment. Can’t wait to go again and would highly recommend a visit
Spotless clean with welcoming and friendly staff. Love the orbit pods, much better than other centres I've been in where they are small and you keep bumping off the sides. Can't wait for next one.
My friend and I had our first Float session today, I had my doubts but decided to give it a go. So glad I did!! Loved it! The staff were friendly and helpful, explaining everything very clearly and gave us a little tour around. The rooms are spacious, warm and clean. The tanks are large and the water is the perfect temperature to let all your cares float away. Will definitely be going back!
This was my first experience at Float UK, and what an amazing experience it was, one to be repeated again and again. Not only do I feel extremely relaxed and at peace, my skin feels so soft to touch.
The staff are warm and welcoming and do what they can to help enhance your experience from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone of my friends and family as a must!!
Thank you Float UK!
Had my first float today and what a great experience it was. Was a little nervous as didn't know what to expect, yet the staff were so helpful, explained everything and made me feel at ease. I find it very hard to relax and came out feeling so chilled. Thank you so much for this experience, I will definately be back and will highly recommend to all
Everything explained fully and clearly. You are given your own lockable room with shower and pod. Shower products are natural and smell lush. Pods are huge.. you're given a head halo to help you float/relax.
The pod doors are very straightforward and easy to open & close. Music and coloured lights start to help you relax, the coloured lights gradually getting darker until totally darkness (for those who don't like total darkness there is a button to switch on lights if you want). Very relaxing experience!
I actually switched off and deeply relaxed even with a 30min session. My back felt better and skin felt softer. Can’t wait to have another session!!
My first time and I loved it, the girls explained everything to me, then once I was in the pod I was in heaven. I'm ready for bed now I'm so relaxed. Can't wait to come back
The Second time I have been here and it is the best experience you could possibly want. You come out relaxed and chilled beyond what you could imagine, and it is fantastic for sports recovery injuries too. Great team that work here too. People need to try this!
