The Art of Self Care

Let’s face it, life is hectic and the average nervous system is constantly in overdrive as we face daily stressors and busy schedules.

We work hard and we deserve to treat ourselves to things that are going to nourish our bodies and minds so that we can continue to show up fully in our lives and be able to take on anything life throws our way.

This is where self-care comes in.

Self care is not a new concept.  It used to be all about the basics:  8 glasses of water, 8 hours of sleep, make sure to eat fruits and veggies everyday, get a yearly physical. 

However, self-care has become an increasingly trendy topic and something of a new-age idea.

So what is self-care exactly?  

Self-care requires discipline, dedication, and focus.  It is about integrating daily practices that bring balance and awareness to your mind, body, and spirit, which in turn assists you in living each day to the fullest. 

It can be something as simple as starting a daily gratitude journal, a bedtime ritual of lavender tea and a warm bath or introducing organic foods into your diet.  The key is to find things that work for you.

With an ever increasing market of holistic health practitioners and wellness centers in Nashville, online, and around the world, the sky is the limit for exploring and introducing new modalities of self-care into your life!

Massage, yoga, acupuncture, aromatherapy, reiki or energy healing, harmonic sound therapy, salt room therapy..the options are endless!

It’s all about finding what works for you, what makes you feel good.

So where does floating come into self-care?

Floating gives you the opportunity to tune out the noise of the daily grind. 

Close your eyes.

Imagine you are floating effortlessly in a warm pool of water.  

1000 lbs of epsom salt gently detoxifies your body and relieves pain from your aching joints and muscles; your mind is calm and relaxed.  

For one hour, or more, you have complete freedom from the outside world.  

As you lay in this calm, supportive environment, endorphins are released adding to this relaxing experience while the lack of external stimulus to your nervous system allows your muscles and connective tissues to unwind, creating ultimate healing.

Sounds dreamy, right?

We here at Float Horizen are beyond thrilled to invite you to add floating to your self-care practice.   

Floating increases vitality, mindfulness, and leaves your body feeling buoyant and light long after a session.

We offer first time float packages as well as a variety of affordable membership options.
