Each of our Float Pods contains over 1,000 pounds of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt – also known as magnesium sulfate. Epsom salt is a natural exfoliant and has been known to treat muscle aches and sore muscles, as well as soothe dry skin.
There are a variety of ways Epsom salt can improve your health and your daily life. Here are some of the top benefits of magnesium and Epsom salt:

1. Boosts Magnesium Levels

Known as hypomagnesemia, low magnesium levels are more common than you’d think. With just 60 minutes of floating, internal levels of magnesium can be increased naturally without taking magnesium supplements. Magnesium regulates over 300 enzymes in the body and plays an important role in organizing many bodily functions, including energy production, muscle control, and the elimination of harmful toxins. Magnesium deficiency contributes to today’s high rates of mental illness, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and more. By boosting your internal magnesium levels through floating, you can ward off many avoidable health ailments.

2. Reduces Stress

Everyone knows a good soak in a warm bath after a rough day is a great way to alleviate stress. A Float Pod creates the ultimate Epsom salt bath to kick back, relax your muscles, and unwind your mind. Magnesium is critical to the production of energy in cells so, by increasing magnesium levels, you can feel revived without feeling restless.

3. Eliminates Toxins

The sulfates in Epsom salt assist the body in flushing heavy metals through the skin in a process called reverse osmosis. Make sure to consume water before and after the float to protect yourself from dehydration and increase detoxification.

4. Reduces Pain & Inflammation

Floating has been shown to relieve pain and the inflammation at the root of most diseases. This makes floating a beneficial natural treatment for asthma, sore muscles, and headaches (including migraines).

5. Improve Muscle and Nerve Function

Aside from relieving tension, pain, and cramping, magnesium sulfate has several other positive effects on the human body. It aids in many enzymatic functions, helps to regulate fluid retention in cells, and facilitates the body’s use of calcium to transmit chemical signals throughout the nervous system. Magnesium is essential to muscle relaxation.

Plus, when you get out of your float, your skin will be completely exfoliated and soft. Actually, your whole being will feel fresh, exfoliated, and soft! Experience what floating can do for both your mind and body.
