Floatation therapy (also known as floating, sensory deprivation or Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy (R.E.S.T)) is designed to create an environment free of external stimuli. The floatation tank is filled with body temperature water and is topped with about 500kg of Epsom salts. You enter a safe environment where you get to experience zero gravity, thanks to the buoyancy created by the Epsom salts. You lose track of where your body ends and the water begins due to the body temperature water.
For an hour you get to effortlessly float and drift away into a dream like theta state. Light and sound slowly fade away. Floating in this environment allows your body to absorb magnesium (a very important element for our bodies functioning), promote greater muscular relaxation, induces a state of profound relaxation and allows your mind to enter a deep meditative state. You can experience a sense of focus and clarity that is otherwise difficult to achieve. It is the ideal time to reflect on your life and the ideal environment to cultivate creative and personal insight.
Floatation has been proven to offer relief for a wide range of ailments and there are measurable changes that occur within the mind and body system. Floatation has been shown to improve overall function and performance. It is an incredibly relaxing experience leaving you with a powerful rejuvenating effect.
There is no right or wrong way to do it! Just enter the tank and float away.
