To many people, this concept is completely new, however it has been around for decades. So what is flotation therapy / sensory deprivation?
Flotation Therapy is essentially a way of achieving deep relaxation by spending an hour or more lying quietly in darkness, suspended in a warm solution of Epsom salt and 10-11 inches of skin temperature water.
The concept of Flotation Therapy is based on the theory that up to 90% of the brain's normal workload is estimated to be caused by the effects of routine environmental stimulation (gravity, temperature, touch, light, sound). We are constantly bombarded with external stimulation as well as the incessant everyday background ‘noises’ & distractions that we may not even realize our minds are busily processing.
Floating in the tank, your senses are released from all these distractions, your body is weightless & you become a mind floating in space, enabling your body & mind to reach deep levels of relaxation/meditation that would normally take years of practice to achieve. The tank creates an environment where you can achieve pure sensory relaxation.
Benefits of Flotation Therapy
The weightlessness combined with the benefits of Epsom salts also creates an ideal environment for injury recovery as well as providing relief from muscular pain & tension.
By freeing the mind from all distractions it can get back to focusing on repairing & rejuvenating your mind & body.
