Lie back and re­lax

Good - - ETHICAL SEX -

If you don’t have the lux­ury of time to hike to a hot spring, float ther­apy is an­other op­tion. Based on a sci­en­tific ap­proach to deep re­lax­ation called Re­stricted En­vi­ron­men­tal Stim­u­la­tion Tech­nique (REST) , the ap­proach in­volves float­ing in dark­ness in a pod of warm wa­ter buoyed by 40 per cent mag­ne­sium sul­phate (Ep­som salts). This af­fects ar­eas of the brain de­voted to pro­cess­ing sen­sory in­for­ma­tion, fur­ther in­creas­ing the depth of men­tal re­lax­ation. While you float, your body is re­lieved of stress and you feel com­pletely weight­less.
