Do you ever feel like the struggles and pressures of work and life are weighing you down? Do you wish you could find a moment of perfect relaxation, peace, and release? If stress or physical pain are weighing you down, it might be time to try floating in Toronto!
Floating is the weightless experience of hovering effortlessly on the surface of Epsom salt-saturated water. You enter a private cabin where the mineral-rich water is set to perfect body temperature. The salt water is so buoyant that you lose all sense of gravity, relieving your joints, muscles, and mind of the burdens and pressures of daily life.
If you’re wondering “what is floating?”, it’s a technique used by athletes, busy business people, students, seniors, yoga enthusiasts, alternative care users, and people from all walks of life to heal both the body and mind.
You get to literally float freely beyond the stress that’s been wearing you down. The results are amazingly healing for body, mind, and spirit. Floating could very well be the best form of relaxation in Toronto that you will find.
You might be wondering, “is floating for me?” Whether you struggle with insomnia, you’re recovering from an injury, or you’re looking to relieve chronic pain (back pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more), a float in Toronto can help. Try it once to experience its soothing benefits and float in Toronto regularly to overcome deeper stress or pain.
These are just a few of the benefits of floating that may improve your quality of life:
You’ve probably heard of the Dead Sea, right? People have travelled there for hundreds of years from all over the world to float in the Dead Sea and reap all its benefits. The salt content of the water is naturally so high that you can lay on the surface without any exertion, just floating in pure relaxation. Not only is the feeling of weightlessness sensational for joints and muscles, but the minerals in the water are also incredibly healing, too.
Luckily, you don’t have to fly all the way to Southwest Asia to reap these benefits. We offer the exact same experience right here in Toronto! You can try floating in Toronto and experience the benefits of float therapy without travelling across the world. Just come down to the Distillery District!
What makes floating with Vital Float Centre even better than floating in the Dead Sea is that you can customize your experience: If you want to float in complete darkness, just turn down the lights. If you want to relax to calming music, just turn up the volume. It’s your time to float freely, liberated from any responsibilities or worries. You can remain fully conscious or fall into a lovely state of deep relaxation. And don’t worry about falling asleep and going over your time; the lights will gently come on at the end of the hour and a pleasant voice will notify you that your session is coming to a close, allowing you to softly awaken in a state of relaxation before you re-enter the real world.
When you try floating in Toronto at Vital Float Centre, you enter into a cabin with a saturated solution of healing Epsom salt. Each tub is filled with approximately 1000 lbs of salt! Just like the Dead Sea, you can float on the water without exerting any effort. You can float without any external stimuli for a full sensory deprivation experience, or you have the option of music and soft lighting, which you can customize to your liking.
Unlike the Dead Sea, you will only be floating in roughly one foot of water, meaning that you don’t have to worry about the depth or having swimming skills. It’s completely safe and private.
Once you’re in the tub, you will experience the elimination of gravity as the density of our expertly designed Epsom salt solution supports your entire body weight. Your muscles and joints can completely relax, taking every bit of pressure and weight off of your body. Along with your body, your mind can relax too, finally stilling the thoughts that continuously “float” through your head daily.
We also carefully control the temperature of the water, keeping it at the average external temperature of your body, around 34-35°C (93-95°F). Floating isn’t like a hot bath (although there is nothing wrong with that). It’s an entirely different kind of relaxation where you can lose track of where your body ends and the water begins!
