What’s a float intensive?

Every self-care routine takes practice, and floating is no exception. If you’re looking for a way to really hone your floating prowess, why not try a float intensive?

While the name might sound, well, intense, what it means is floating frequently in a short amount of time, usually several times over the course of a few weeks. The benefits of floating are cumulative, so they’re at their peak when part of a regular practice.

Frequent floating has shown to produce lasting (and possibly permanent!) effects. Lower blood pressure, improved sleep, reduced anxiety, and overall improved well-being are all benefits backed up by scientific studies.

The studies that show cumulative benefits over time generally have their subjects float at least twice a week over several weeks. We’d definitely encourage you to do that for yourselves.

But you don’t have to take science’s word for it – our staff have had great experiences with float intensives of their own. Our yearly summer float challenge, Let’s Float, has been popular ever since we started it. Also, a float enthusiast in Oregon, Brian Kroll, set himself a challenge of floating every day for a month. He chronicled his float experiences and effects on his chronic pain at Float A Day May. Brian actually ended up floating 34 times in 31 days!

The more often you float, the easier it becomes to reach for that blissful floaty feeling in day to day life.

And you don’t need to be a float veteran to reap the rewards! Newbies can use it to really jump-start their float practice and train their brains in the art of relaxation. Think of it as a meditation retreat that you don’t have to leave town for.

Our ‘Make a Change’ package is the perfect bundle for anyone interested in supercharging their float experience.

So if you love the way you feel after a float, then you’ll adore the feeling you get from a float intensive. Ask us about float intensives, or about our packages, today!
