Who Knew 1,000 Pounds Of Salt Could Be Good For You?In the era of clean eating, keto living and super awareness of what is healthy, you would never expect someone to write a whole blog on how this much salt can do a body good…but here it goes! 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, mixed with over 100 gallons of plain tap water can be one of the best things you can do for your mind and body. Still lost? Don’t worry, most people who read my thoughts are, but stick with me.
Have you ever heard of a float pod or deprivation chamber? If you haven’t you aren’t alone. While not a new treatment, most people are just now learning about the benefits of this service. Utah just joined the enlightened states and about 5 new float pod locations have opened through the state in the last year alone, so if you haven’t heard of it before, you will be hearing more about it very soon.
Beaute Marque Day Spa in Salt Lake City, Utah is one of those few new locations, the nice part about our location is that it is an addition to our spa. Meaning that, as far as I am aware, we are the only one who can offer this service as a standalone or as part of a full day of relaxation, rejuvenation and detox.
What is a float pod? Also known as a deprivation chamber, a float pod serves many purposes.
Relaxation – 1000 pounds of epsom salt, body temperature water and a pod that blocks out light and noise are a phenomenal mixture for a relaxing environment. Most people report reduced stress and anxiety for at least two days after a float. Couple this with a massage and or a sauna and you can expect days of residual relaxation.
Detoxification – Epsom salt is a well-known whole-body detoxifier.
Aids in muscle injury – Epsom salt is also a fantastic way to help your muscles heal faster.
Helps with cronic conditions – There has been several scientific studies into the benefits of floating and the improvements of chronic pain. Especially joint and back pain. The weightless floating gives your body a break from the effects of gravity
Meditation – If you find yourself struggling to meditate the deprivation of your senses can aid in deep meditation and self-awareness.
Visualization – many professional athletes swear by the effectiveness of visualizations during their floats.
There are many other benefits to floating, just give it a try and you will be hooked!
