Float Therapy

Float Therapy is a new method I've been exploring to soothe and heal stress. I've been to Float Spa San Diego, which has soundproof and lightproof fiberglass enclosed tanks filled with water heated exactly to skin temperature. They also add Epsom Salts with a very high concentration of magnesium. The resultant high density water allows you to float completely without effort. Even your head floats without sinking.

Due to the high salt levels in the water, the floatation tank creates a zero gravity environment. It allows you to (try to) relax every single muscle and find those tense areas you are holding so you can (try to) let them go. The total darkness and total silence contribute to a peace in which you don't have to **do** anything. There's nothing to process and nothing to adjust.

The first time a friend recommended that I try this form of relaxation, I was skeptical. "I'll be bored," I thought. "I'll be claustrophic if I have to stay in there and do nothing for a whole hour."

One hour later, I was a believer. The whole experience was like meditation, but easier because it didn't require the constant decision to ignore stimuli. The only thing that stood in the way of relaxation were the thoughts in my own brain. Once they alone were front and center, it was much easier to see that I could choose to let them go.

I'd compare the experience to a really good yoga class or a massage, and I'd definitely recommend it for people who would like to meditate and find it difficult.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
