WHAT IS FLOATATION THERAPY
Floatation, simply put is floating in salt water in a specially designed Float Tank. Floatation is a luxurious process of enabling your one and only body to relax by soothing and healing it free from stress and give it the treatment it truly deserves. Imagine yourself free from the hold of gravity or floating in outer space. Unless you’re an astronaut you won’t know the feeling. And this is where floatation comes in. It’s a unique, fun and carefree method to maximize your brain’s potential whilst also healing your body from this world’s constant external stimulation. Allow yourself to float away and ESCAPE from all those worries through floatation therapy!
Floatation therapy is primarily utilized in a float tank or a pod which is about 8 ft long and contains 11 inches of water and is maintained at the human body temperature of 93 degrees F or 36 degrees C, the consistency of which is 65% water and 35% Epsom salt. A float session typically lasts for about 60-90 mins.
One has to simply lie down in the pod and effortlessly start floating. The float tank is placed in a room devoid of sound and light which enhances the floatation experience. This practice is commonly called ‘Sensory Deprivation,’ the inception of which began as a test to enhance the nervous system by depriving the body of any external stimulation. Once the floatation begins, the body adjusts in sync with the water and enters into a rhythm with zero gravity. The spine elongates and one can feel every part of the body heightened to awareness followed by relaxation. The only sound one can hear is the constant beating of the heart. On a daily basis the brain uses up about 90% of its energy to sense gravity and compute how and where to move and how not to fall over. With floatation, one is shielded from all sorts of external stimulation and the brain is free from these complex computations and conserves 90% of its energy thereby reducing the normal workload and enters a 100% state of relaxation allowing the brain to tend to other important matters. The effects of this therapy continue even after hours and days of the float session.
HEALTH EFFECTS AND BENEFITS
The body at this stage is floating and completely relaxing. For some it’s like watching a movie wherein one just forgets the problems of life for those few hours. For another some, it’s the perfect time to allow oneself to think and boost creativity. Another secondary effect of floatation is the correction of magnesium deficiency. The Epsom salt contains magnesium which is absorbed by the skin through a process called ‘natural molecular diffusion’ and has phenomenal effects on the skin and hair. Epsom salts contain medicinal properties that provides just the right amount of momentum to let go of those tense muscles and relax every single muscle in your neck, back, arms and even ears! Floatation enhances the circulation of blood and also ails in various problems such as chronic back pain and migraines, stress and anxiety, insomnia, jet lag amongst others.
