Special Offer by Float Life Eases Pregnancy Discomforts

Float Life, located in Whitefish Bay, offers a float therapy special for moms-to-be through the end of 2017: expectant mothers can receive their first float for free. Float therapy involves the user relaxing in a pod containing 10 inches of skin-temperature water and 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt. This allows one to float effortlessly and escape the stresses of the surrounding world, giving the mind a break from bright lights, noise and even the sense of touch.

Tyler Herman, co-owner of Float Life, observes that pregnant women have benefitted from floating. “By easing the strain of gravity on the joints, spine and musculature, the added pressure of bearing a baby’s weight is relieved. Resting in a float pod completely free of distraction helps promote deep rest and rejuvenation, which, even when sleeping comfortably, is challenging for some expectant mothers.”

Floating has also been known to reduce stress, anxiety and blood pressure, which tend to increase during pregnancy. Pregnant floaters have reported the experience of sensing nothing around them except for their own heartbeat and that of their babies, deepening the mother-child bond. Health research suggests that float therapy is very safe, but if pregnant women have specific concerns or high-risk pregnancies, they should speak with their doctors first.

Float Life also regularly offers a new customer discount of $20 off the first visit.

Location: 211 E. Silver Spring Dr., Whitefish Bay. For more information, call 414-214-7378 or visit FloatLifeWI.com.
