Floating for pregnant women can offer a brilliant level of relaxation, and pain relief not found outside of the tank. Float Therapy allows you to escape the added weight of pregnancy by floating in a weightless environment, taking strain off the body, joints and spine. Floating promotes excellent sleep, a lovely sense of well being, and can help with all the aches and pains associated with pregnancy.
Floating can help the pregnant mum to be, literally float through the pregnancy with a level of calm and comfort whilst the Epsom salt solution decreases inflammation. The pregnant mum to be will also absorb magnesium from the water solution in the float tank which is amazing for the skin.
Women that are in their 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy are welcome to float after seeking advice from their healthcare provider.
When discussing flotation with your GP or healthcare provider, PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:
The tank water is heated to skin temperature of the body (34.5C) and your core body temperature will not rise.
The water contains over 400 kilograms of Epsom Salt (magnesium sulphate) which allows the anti-gravity flotation experience.
The tank water is filtered to less than 20microns, pH balanced, sanitised with a minimum of 2ppm of bromine.
There is direct airflow through the tank with its specifically designed ventilation system to encourage air flow and direction.
