Floating for Pregnancy & Prenatal Health

Elevation Floatation and Yoga is Melbourne’s first combined Floatation, Yoga and Creative centre. We have been providing the most effective and expert-led programs to rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

 

At Elevation Floatation and Yoga, we specialise in floatation tank therapy as one of our major meditative and rehabilitative programs!  It has become an increasingly trendy way to distress, relieve pain and revitalise oneself. That’s why so many women pregnant women have turned to our floatation therapy program.

 

For those who are new to the practice of float therapy, it involves virtually floating in a tank or pod which is enclosed and filled with 40 cm of water. The water is saturated with 550kg of Epsom salts which effectively allows a person to float effortlessly, without having to worry about the danger of falling asleep or drowning.

What makes these float tanks even more unique is that they are soundproof and lightproof which eliminates any visual, audible and physical distractions. This consequently nurtures an environment that allows for meditation and deep relaxation.

Experiencing floatation therapy has many well-known benefits for a healthy pregnancy. However, it is always best for pregnant women to check with their physician before first using the floatation tank.

Firstly, expectant mothers can find their stress being noticeably reduced. This not only benefits the mother but improves the development of her baby during infancy and for years after.

Secondly, scientific studies show that floatation tank pregnancy therapy contributes to better sleeping patterns and can even relieve sleep disorders such as insomnia. This is particularly beneficial for women who during pregnancy tend to experience disrupted sleep. It provides a natural alternative for pregnant women who want to get a better night’s sleep without having to use sleep-inducing medication.

Thirdly, the Epson salt that saturates the water in the float tank can aid in magnesium absorption. This is vital for women during pregnancy because a wide range of our bodily functions rely on magnesium intake to remain healthy. Magnesium can be absorbed through food, dietary supplements and skin which makes floating a great way for pregnant women to ensure they are getting their mineral intake.

Last but not least, floatation can be very effective in relieving the much-added weight, pains and pressure women endure during their pregnancy. Most pregnant women experience backaches, sore feet and fatigue. However, the Epsom salt in the water minimises gravity, enables the body to float and allows one to feel weightlessness. This, therefore, frees any muscle tensions and pressure points and consequently aids in muscle relaxation.

How can floatation tank therapy benefit pregnant women?

Floatation tank therapy can benefit pregnant women in a number of ways! The Epsom salt in the water minimises gravity and enables the body to float. This frees any muscle tensions and pressure points and aids in muscle relaxation. Pregnant women who may experience backaches, sore feet and fatigue can, therefore, find the floatation tank experience to be very effective in relieving much of the added weight and pressure they endure. The floatation experience can also relieve stress and fatigue, improve sleep and help pregnant women meet their magnesium intake requirements. These benefits not only benefit expectant mothers but also the development of their baby during infancy and for years after.

However please keep in mind that it is always best to check with your physician before taking your first float!
