A technique that is new to us but not so new to the Outside world, Float tanks or sensory deprivation tanks or Isolation tanks were introduced to this world in 1954 by neuroscientist Dr. John C Lilly.
In 1954 he invented the world's first floatation tank, an enclosed saline bath designed for intensive study of human consciousness when deprived of as much external stimulus as possible. This study was further extended in the physiology as the researchers kept exploring this unique soundless lightless space and its effects on human body and the mind itself.
Over the years there are 4000 + peer studies and researches showing us amazing benefits of floatation technique itself. Also called as R.E.S.T. (Reduced environmental stimulation technique) the effects of the floatation tanks show us amazing results on human consciousness and physiology.
Floatation tanks or sensory deprivation tanks are a water based environment where you lie down in 10 to 12 inches of water in a pod or a room. The water body that is nearly 2000 Litres, is added with 750 to 800 KG of Epsom Salt / Magnesium Sulfate, makes you float 'effortlessly' in zero gravity. The light switch inside the float tank can be switched off 'at your comfort' allows to you darken the room fully and the water is heated and maintained to your body's average temperature.
Your brain now gets the the chance to disconnect from the constant bombardment of sensory input and enhance your ability to be cognitive, mindful and introspective. The Biotec grade concentrated Epsom salt solution contains essential Magnesium sulphate minerals that leave you feeling deeply relaxed and vibrant as the tension in your body melts away and your body releases amazing energy. There is simply no other technology or environment that can stimulate these evolutionary effects. Your spine decompresses by about a 2 Centimeters in zero gravity releasing all the tensions we hold in our spine. The epsom salt relaxes central nervous system fully, Making us relax our body fully.
The sensory reduction technique frees our brain from clogged, unnecessary random memories and data. Making us free from unwanted thought structures like stress and anxiety. With Deeper theta state activation, your body finds a way to reaching a state of homeostasis, a state in which your bodily systems are able to reset and to calibrate to it’s optimum functioning. A deep meditative environment first makes you self aware of the state you are in. Answers about how to correct this state lie deep inside of you. As you float more and more regularly, you find these answers for yourself, and you can correct the self and become your own guru by achieving the Let go and finally letting go the idea of letting go.
We are constantly using our muscles to fight the gravitational forces that weigh us down and cause tension. Floating is a revolutionary tool for enhancing the recovery, rejuvenation and performance of your body. Floating allows your body to escape the sensation of gravity, release musculoskeletal tension built up from daily life and rest in a healthy stretched posture. You can renew your whole body while maximizing training gains and minimizing the chance of muscle soreness, fatigue or injury.
In a fast-paced world, it has become the norm to run on auto-pilot and simply view sleep as a luxury. Yet it is while we are sleeping that the neural connections in our brain strengthen and our bodies repair, replenish and rebuild. Floating allows you to reach the deep meditative state of theta-brainwaves to the extent that - 1 hour of floating can be equivalent to 4 hours of restful sleep. You can gain the greatest amount of rest with the least amount of time.
The secret to creativity is uninterrupted solitude. Creativity thrives when you’re floating as you are deeply relaxed yet highly focused. The pod is a remarkably peaceful environment for allowing you to free your mind from distraction, activate full consciousness, achieve creative visualization, reach high levels of thinking and explore objective reasoning. You can sharpen your mind and explore the true potential of your inner creativity.
As human beings have evolved, we have repeatedly overused and misused our musculoskeletal framework. Floating allows your body to elongate your spine and restore your primal body posture & joint mobility. The unique environment of the pod allows you to reduce stress hormone levels, fatigue & sleep disturbances that are commonly caused by pain & aches. You can redirect your attention away from pain, change your pain perception & strengthen your body for optimal function. Not having to fight gravity lets your muscles, joints & bones take a well-deserved break. Without the gravity pushing you down, your spine lengthens an inch, chronic pain is relieved & your muscles get to fully rest.
Every moment of life is experienced through your mind yet the modern world clouds this precious resource by forcing it to constantly process information. The mind without sensory input is enhanced. The Relaxo-pod is a modern learning environment that allows you to achieve unprecedented levels of focus, access resources of your mind that are usually bombarded and absorb and retain information quickly. You can expand your learning potential and evolve your mind.
In a recent study on recovery using flotation therapy results showed flotation R.E.S.T. appears to have a significant impact on lactic acid reduction and perceived pain compared to a one hour passive recovery session. Floating after workout or after events can make a difference in recovery and ease of movement. It allows you to push your body harder, gaining a competitive edge. Science has shown the power of visualizing tasks you want to perform better, and how it affects the outcome. Athletes, musicians and high level performers have been using this simple exercise forever. Doing this practice during floating can improve motor skills and help deepen the mind and body connection.
Regular sessions with the Lucia no.03 and R.E.S.T. have shown significant increase in productivity and overall performance... that would usually only appear after several years of meditation practice. For the first timers experience a state of deep relaxation coupled with focus, where one is in touch with their own intuition and sense of wholeness, thus increasing performance under high stress levels. Keeping you calm and balanced to tackle the worldly issues.
I've suffered from sleeping disorders for a while now & this was one of the aspects I wanted to work on by doing these therapies & i am happy to say I can very visibly notice a definite change in my sleeping patterns & will definitely be going back here to float some more & to journey within myself.
Right from the moment I walked & I was explained what exactly it was, my experience has been so relaxing & light, I feel like I've hit refresh on my mind. The hostess was very helpful in explaining the procedure & walked me through the entire procedure very effortlessly & in a way that was best for me
It was amazing. For the first time I experienced myself without my physical body. As if my body didn't exist. Even after the session I experienced the meditation also. It really helped me to feel the energy body. I am sure this experience is going to help me in my spiritual journey
