What is floating therapy and how does it work?
Flotation therapy consists of swim in a bath containing 600 liters of water and 350 kilograms of magnesium sulfate.. The water has a temperature of 36 degrees and remains this way throughout the entire therapy. Another ingredient is magnesium sulfate, also known as Epsom salt. It is an important mineral for the balance of the central nervous system and is commonly deficient in our bodies.
Then, according to experts, while a person swims, these components penetrate through the pores of the skin and have a positive effect on both the digestive and nervous systems. It is carried out in special tanks where people feel weightlessness, eliminating external sensory distractions.
Likewise, the environment you are swimming in is 20 degrees or higher. This causes the nervous system to remain deprived of other stimuli such as sounds, light and other temperatures.
This process helps physical and mental relaxation, allowing the mind and body to enter a state of calm. “There are those who fall asleep during float therapy and then experience a state of very deep relaxation,” Burbach explained.
Zero gravity experience
Technically, weightlessness is a state in which a body having a certain weight is opposed by another force or remains in free fall without feeling the effects of gravity. This is what astronauts usually feel in spacecraft.
As part of this experience, you will be provided with a facilitator who will guide you through the process. It is the person who admits the patient, gives general explanations about the therapy and then remains outside the room. so that a person can connect with his inner world.
The second step is for the user to take a light shower. It then lands on a float and remains there for 50 minutes. Depending on the person’s needs, they assess each person’s specific situation, i.e. whether they have a medical or psychological diagnosis, and develop a tailored plan.

The importance of holistic well-being

Pamela Burbach, with her decades of experience and career in psychology, offers a space focused on integrity, recognizing the relationship between mind and body.
There are even people who are looking for tools that complement medicine to improve their well-being: “There is a great openness on the part of Posadeños, who undoubtedly prefers to practice and develop personal self-care,” the specialist emphasized in dialogue with Channel 12.
