I had never floated before and was nervous going into it. The major benefits weren’t immediately noticeable. I was relaxed and it was nice to be in the total silence and darkness and fully unplug, however it was the benefits for the next several weeks that will bring me back. Muscle spasms and pain that I struggle with in my ribs and upper back were completely gone for 2 weeks following my float. Even after massages I haven’t experienced relief that lasts for that long.
