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.

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.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself high above the clouds, weightlessly floating with nothing but the thoughts in your head and a calm over your body. Though such a pleasurable and carefree experience may seem out of reach, others would argue that it is the exact feeling experienced by a visit to a float room.
Yes, in fact, many float rooms are popping up all of the country, providing people of all ages, the transcendental opportunity to experience the benefits of anti-gravity floating. But while some of the advantages may be obvious, clients at iSoFloat, are beginning to realize there are unexpected benefits, both physically and mentally.
Stress reduction, energy rejuvenation, and relief of intense body pain are just some of the reasons people are truly beginning to jump on board the floatation therapy train. Across the world, a practice that actually started in the 1950’s, is getting attention from everyone from millennials looking for new ways of meditation to veterans suffering from PTSD to every day clients in need of pain relief.
Clients are especially taking advantage of the overnight floats offered by iSofloat for longer acclimation times and extended relief. But for those looking to slip into a deep, trance-like state of bliss, some questions may arise when thinking of sleeping- without sinking! For those considering overnight floating at iSofloat to catch a few revitalizing Z’s, read on for our 5 reasons to try an overnight float.
I got a special podcast today. In Episode 32, I’m going to discuss my last 2 floating experiences. Yes, that’s what I said, floating experiences. What is floating? I’m going to read this from where I floated at iSofloat here in San Antonio. It’s a new float lab that just opened up.
Welcome back to another episode of the Fed and Fit podcast. Today is a very special episode because we are going to get a little geeky, a little sciencey. I know that there are some listeners here who have told me that they love those kinds of episodes and we’re going to do it today in the vein of the important piece of all health and wellness lifestyle and healthy pursuits, a huge part of that is rest and recovery and that’s what we’re going to focus on today, specifically one method. To join us on today’s call is Sloane Wendell. She’s an expert and the owner actually of the first float therapy spa in San Antonio, Texas which is actually where I’m from but things that we’re going to talk about today definitely apply in a worldly perspective.
Ringing phones, the constant “ding” of emails coming into your inbox, text messages coming multiple at a time from the group text message. I’m not sure how many of you remember the “Ahhhh Calgon Take Me Away” commercial form 1988? I remember it and often feel like I live it on a daily basis. There are days I get to the point where I say “Calgon take me away!” I easily get over stimulated and if we are honest with ourselves, most of us do but we just push it down and keep going. Why? We have 2 dozen gourmet cupcakes we need to make for our kids bake sale tomorrow and we still have to slug through Pinterest to find the perfect recipe! At the end of most days, I want to throw my phone into the ocean but I can’t, I do however put it on the charger in another room around 9 pm, some days earlier than 9 pm. Floating takes me to a quiet place where I have less anxiety, can truly relax and I’m NOT overstimulated. It is amazing and I love the feeling. Research has proven that floating tamps down anxiety in a way that rivals prescription drugs and meditation. If you suffer from anxiety consider a few floats in one of our float rooms that will be opening soon. Click the link below for an article on anxiety and floating.
