“I’m claustrophobic” is something we hear more than not from clients looking at floating. First, what is Claustrophobia? “Claustrophobia is a form of anxiety disorder, in which an irrational fear of having no escape or being closed-in can lead to a panic attack.”, according to Medical News Today. Does this sound like anybody? Me, me, me!!! On a scale to 1 to 10 I would say I’m a 4 on the Claustrophobia scale. I’d say about 10 years ago when I was flying a lot for work, I was on a small plane from Houston to Mobile and I totally freaked out! My heart rate went through the roof, my palms got sweaty, my respiration increased. I don’t know what set me off that day but it was very real and something I have battled ever since.

Lets start with a definition of “Mental Health” so that we are all on the same page. Mental Health as defined by Wikipedia is “the psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment”. From the perspective of positive psychology or holism, mental health may include an individual’s ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities.”
Like most things in life, striking a healthy balance in your diet is a back and forth type of mission. On some days, you eat heart-healthy, nutritious foods from sun up to sun down and others? Well, let’s just call those “cheat days.” But while you’re paying mind to the food you put in your body, it’s important to remember that liquids- H2O in particular- are just as essential. In fact, it’s not just about HOW MUCH water you’re drinking these days, but also, WHAT KIND. With the emergence of body-benefitting alkaline H2O- and all the hype that goes with it- we want you to know how this latest nutritional trend stacks up- and why we think it has staying power for the long run.
From CEOs to athletes to the every day, hardworking men and women across our country, people are turning to new methods for releasing their stress, anxieties and pain- both physically and mentally. And while there are many different ways to replace or address the chaos in your life, some are finding that nothing works as well as floatation therapy. It’s true- floating is rapidly becoming a go-to method for calming the mental and physical tensions in our bodies. And for athletes in particular, nothing seems as beneficial for getting their bodies and minds in peak condition for the big season- or last game to win it all- than a much needed float session.
We’re quite certain that many of you understand how the blood vessels in your circulatory system work to transport blood throughout your body. What we’ve found, however, is that many are still unaware of how crucially vital another system is within your body – the lymphatic system. This network of lymphatic vessels, which is also a part of the circulatory system, is fundamental in keeping your immune system strong – helping you to stay healthier longer or recover faster.
At iSoFloat, we take pride in offering only top of the line, safe and effective treatments and therapies to ensure that every time you step through our doors, you are excited about the results that you KNOW are waiting for you. That’s why, iSoFloat is thrilled to be revealing our newest treatment – full body wraps – to help eliminate toxins.
This treatment, which has been around for centuries, has long touted the benefits of eliminating toxins, water and inches from the body – specifically within the lymphatic system. While this is certainly not a long-term weight loss program, it is perfect to help detoxify and restart your weight loss or fitness journey.
Did you know that Epsom salt, the go-to remedy known to cure much that ails, is in fact, NOT really salt in the terms of traditional table salt like most of us think? It’s true- this naturally occurring mineral is actually a compound of magnesium and sulfate, as opposed to table salt, which is made up of sodium chloride.
Still, these tiny, crystalized granules of wonder have benefits for your body that will leave you feeling relaxed, rejuvenated and smooth to the touch! Read on as we breakdown the natural powers of Epsom salt- the very thing that gives our Float Rooms their buoyancy and skin-soothing treatment.
For every business, one of the most crucial aspects of operations is hiring a successful, hard working and motivated team, to keep your business moving and aligned in the direction you envision. While, that is a complicated process, often times the benefits of having the right people in place, far outweigh the stress of implementing your personnel. However, with workplace stress at an almost record high throughout the United States, the overall employee standards of health and happiness are diminishing- grossly effecting the productivity of the workplace.
So how should you, as an employer, ensure the overall wellbeing of your employees?
Years ago, when athletes finished a rigorous event or activity, you would head straight to a hot tub or ice bath, to heal your aches and pains. However, today’s athletes are turning to a revolutionary therapy that is changing the way you can repair, from the inside out.
Amazing research is proving time and time again, that the continuous use of float tanks does more than just heal an aching back or sore muscle. Instead, the endless benefits are not only in healing faster but creating a better, stronger overall athlete, as well. With his 5th Superbowl win, we have a feeling that long time floater, Tom Brady, will be reaping the benefits of floatation therapy during his well deserved off season. Brady, the well known star quarterback for the New England Patriots- a team that installed float tanks in their facilities in 2014– is leading the way for other athletes to test the proverbial waters. Certainly, if it’s good enough for the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) to float, then we think you will want to learn more, too.
Did you know that over 40 million Americans suffer from the same psychiatric condition, often leaving them paralyzed with fear, panic or obsession? Yes, in fact anxiety is the most common of all conditions, twice that of depression, and something that has quickly become an epidemic in the 21st century.
The term “anxiety” can be used to describe a number of different things such as: Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), social anxiety or even panic disorder. And while each may result in a slightly different outcome, the fact remains that these disorders are debilitating and life altering, many times interfering with the opportunities and experiences with loved ones.
So how does floating come into play? While float therapy is gaining traction amongst former skeptics, the science behind floating has long supported the amazing benefits produced by a relaxing float.
