ABOUT FLOAT THERAPY

 

Floatation therapy is the practice of lying back in one of our original float rooms and experiencing the blissful, profoundly relaxing, healing state of complete sensory rest.

The scientific term is “sensory deprivation” but in reality, it is an experience rich in inner beauty and serenity.

This environment allows an individual to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. The primary function of the isolation tank is to eliminate as many of the external senses as possible.

Float therapy provides the perfect sensory conditions for deep relaxation of the body and mind. By immersing yourself in an Ocean Float Room, you are effortlessly floating in a warm Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salt) solution, with no sound, no light, and with the solution and air at body temperature simulating the ultimate experience of nothingness. This allows the brain to enter a meditative state free from external sensory input. Floating can help with re-building neurological pathways while also alleviating the damaging effects of overactive stress hormones.

Post floaters experience for several days after of feeling relaxed, euphoric yet energised and revitalised all at the same time.

Many years of well documented experiments has shown overwhelmingly that floatation therapy provides immediate and powerful benefits.  Frequently after 1 float, but certainly within several, flotation has an immediate effect on pain relief and the elimination of stress, whether physical, emotional, or psychological/mental. It is a godsend for pregnant women, especially those in the 3rd trimester, as well as anyone suffering from addictions, or habits they are trying to break.

  • Complete physical & mental de-stressing

  • Deep muscular relaxation

  • Rejuvenates energy levels.

  • Enhances Creativity

FLOATATION THERAPY FOR STUDENTS

Whilst floating, the brain works to focus on recently learned skills and information, making it a great way to process and retain information.

  • Stimulates creativity.

  • Promotes clarity of thought process.

  • Memory function

  • Verbal processing

HOW?

Sensory deprivation therapy is achieved through removing close to 100% of all external stimulation, thereby freeing up huge areas of the subconscious mind. Gravity is neutralised through the super buoyant Epsom salt water, and the remaining senses are calmed through silence, darkness, (unless the floater prefers a soft light in the beginning) minimising skin sensation and temperature control.

As a result, the floater drifts into the deepest relaxation one can experience. It is a state deeper than sleep. There is often no awareness of the body. The effect of this experience is rapid and powerful relief of stress on all levels, as well as the other benefits.

Frequently Asked QUESTIONS

Why use the flotation tank regularly?


The more you use flotation tanks the better it gets! Each flotation tank session is unique, and two floats are rarely the same.




What effects does floating in a flotation tank have on the mind?


During a float, you produce slower brain-waves patterns, known as theta waves, which are normally only experienced during a deep meditation or just before falling asleep. This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy. Because of these effects, floating is used effectively in the treatment of depression and addictions.




Is floating successful for everyone?


Floating, as with other treatments, does not suit everybody. It requires willingness on your part to let go and see what happens, and you may need to float a few times before you are able to relax completely, both physically and mentally. Depending on your own journey through life, a float might provide an hour of total physical relaxation - or a profound healing experience, emotionally and spiritually transforming. Floating can be a wonderful aid to opening doors into your inner world, gradually allowing access to those deeper levels at which real changes take place.




Is there a typical tank user?


Not that we know of. People of all ages and walks of life seem to enjoy the experience equally. What seems typical is how glowing and peaceful everyone looks when they come out of the tank.




Is anyone not supposed to use the tank?


We do not recommend use tank for epileptics whose epilepsy is not under medical control, for anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or for those with infectious diseases or open skin wounds.




Can pregnant women use the tank?


Yes. We suggest pregnant women inform their physicians and midwives or get their opinion prior to using the tank. The reports received from pregnant women have been enthusiastic. As their bodies get heavier, floating is a great relief from the pull of gravity. Floating has given many women a welcome rest.




Can I use the tank if I'm menstruating?


Yes, if you use a tampon.




What effect does salt water have on my skin and hair?


The Epsom salt solution is beneficial to the skin and hair. People leave the tank with softer-feeling skin.




Can you wear a bathing cap?


Yes, you can wear one, but it likely will not keep your hair completely dry.




Do you wear anything in the tank?


Since it is a private experience, most people don't wear anything. Anything you wear will touch against your body, becoming a distraction.




Do people sleep in the tank?


Yes, some people fall asleep in the tank, and some people use the tank for sleeping.




Is there a right way to do it?


All the ways are right. Each person will find whatever position is most comfortable for them. Some people float with their hands at their sides, some with hands folded across their chest or abdomen, or behind their heads. You may float with the door open or closed, eyes open or closed. Float the way it is comfortable for you and explore what is best for you.




Will I float?


Yes. It is impossible not to float in the tank. Eight hundred pounds of salt dissolved in the water makes the solution so dense that your body is pushed to the surface like a cork. Your face is out of the water and your ears are underwater.




What if I'm claustrophobic?


People who say they are afraid to use the tank because they are claustrophobic probably assume they will be confined in an enclosed space. You can use the tank with the door open if you wish, and are in complete control of the situation. You can get in and out whenever you want. In our experience, most people who are afraid of being claustrophobic find they are okay once they are in the tank. .




Is it safe to sleep in the tank?


It is safe to fall asleep in the tank. Even those who say they never sleep on their backs in bed are often able to in the tank. It is very difficult to roll over in the tank because of the density of the solution, and if any of the salt solution gets in your eyes, mouth or nose, you would wake up immediately.




Can two people float in the tank at the same time?


We do not recommend it. Floating in the tank is intended to be a private, individual experience.




How is the water cleaned between sessions?


We have a filtration system that runs after each session. There is more than 1000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in the tank - a concentration so high no living microorganism can survive. In addition, a ultra-violet light sterilization system is used. UV is the safest, most effective system available and uses the same technology as water purification systems used for drinking water. To maintain cleanliness, a shower is mandatory before floating.
