HOW OFTEN SHOULD I FLOAT?
This will be in accordance to your WHY.
What prompted you to book your float? What are you cultivating?
Are you stressed out, working on physical recovery, want to accelerate your healing?
Are you diving deep into self love, self exploration, connection, curiosity?
“There’s no single other intervention that comes even close to the list of benefits (of floating), and no other readily available self-empowerment tool that can so effectively and efficiently help the mind-body recalibrate toward optimal wellness.” ~Dr. Engle
Accumulation is key. Floating changes your baseline and reality.
The more you float, the more your floats will show up for you. Similar to going to the gym or yoga, the more you treat floating as a practice – the better results you’ll see in the short-term and long-term. We are HUGE advocates of floating at least once a week and allowing your mind to hit that awesome mental and physical reset button.
Noticeable effects from floating include
“The result is a major reboot to the neuro-endocrine (brain-hormone) system as the limbic systems scanning modes quiet, emotional awareness of the physical environment ceases and the parasympathetic system comes back on-line as the primary modality for nervous system function, thus facilitating rest and relaxation and a whole host of noticeable and measurable physiological effects.” ~ excerpt from Dr. Engle’s article Floating - the Ultimate Ally

3 WEEK INTENSIVE
These are great option to kick start a program for pain management or float practice with maximum results in a short period of time. Research has shown that floating consistently (2-3 sessions a week) over a 3 week period can significantly reduce pain. Dr. Dan Engel MD, a practicing psychiatrist and board certified in psychiatry and neurology, believes it’s because floating starts to repair the body’s relationship with itself; it helps the body repair its own opioid production as well as its own pain molecule production.
This float intensive, in combination to other healing modalities, will accelerate your healing process and result in noticeable improvements.

Your experiences will become one of mastery instead of novelty; one of artistry rather than skepticism. The results are felt and they are YOURS! And this is a much more meaningful experience.
