People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more.
Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards.
Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt.
Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound.
Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking and sleeping’ state.
After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there effortlessly.
People have cut strokes off their golf game,developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating.
With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing.
You won’t be fighting gravity.
Over 500kgs of epsom salt in the water takes care of
that while you lie on your back.
The water is kept at 36.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor
neutral, which means you lose track of where your
body ends and where the water begins.
Your ears stay just below the water, and the tanks
are insulated against sound. Noise from the outside
doesn’t reach you.
After you shut the door and turn off the light, you float in total darkness.
For an hour the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.
It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking information, your body has a lot of extra resources at it’s disposal.
Your mind is free to mull over without distraction, your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body gets to rest, de-stress, and heal.
