Candice’s Corner: My Travels
I have just returned from visiting customers in the mid West (Missouri, Nebraska and Chicago). I like to explore in my travels. This trip was all about “WATER”. I discovered I love FLOATING. Floating is being submerged in 96 degree water filled with 890lbs of Epson mineral salts (depending on facility). Light soothing music plays in the distance in a dim to completely dark environment (at your control). Completely relaxing, especially when it is not bed time, is extremely difficult for me. Within 10 minutes I was sound asleep. I could NOT believe it! The room is completely sound and lightproof, providing the ultimate conditions for mind/body relaxation. Since there is no sensory stimulus for your brain to process, the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest) activates, which is associated with promoting healing, regeneration and nourishment for the body, and up-regulating the immune system of the body.
I took 3 Humic Mineral Vegetarian Capsules prior to entering the tank. During the experience of floating, the Epsom salt helps reduce inflammation, improves skin problems, increases blood flow and soothes the muscles and aching limbs, like HUmic Acid MINERAL. The experience of floating encourages deep relaxation which produces significant physical and mental benefits. When my session was complete, I felt very light ….as if my body were 50lbs lighter. I met my sister for dinner shortly afterwards, and she commented my skin was glowing. I will definitely be a regular Floater. Floating and being on a Jet Ski have been a few of this summers highlights thus far.
A Place to Float:
A hygienic environment is important to me when working out. I found Evanston Float Center (EFC) facilities to be impeccable. Friendly service and patient explaining the process and procedures. They also offer massage therapy before or after your float. Arrive early for your appointment as you will need to shower before entering tank and afterwards. EFC provides soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, head rest for the float, towels, etc. You may want to check locations for specifics, they differ in services, prices and facility prep.
