What is Floatation Therapy?

Floatation Therapy as the name implies allows the body to experience a feeling of weightlessness as if one is suspended and floating in space free from gravity and tension.

It was invented in the mid 1950’s by American neuroscientist Dr John Lilly who saw the potential for studying the nature of consciousness by isolating the physical body from all  and external stimuli as it floats in a darkened pod of warm (35.5 degree temp) water and epsom salts

At the very least regular floating in a floatation tank will trigger a deep relaxation response much deeper than normal sleep, enabling a drift in to the Theta state of consciousness  

Floatation therapy tanks were originally named “sensory deprivation tanks,” and sometimes “isolation tanks.” Over the years the name was changed to float tanks or floatation therapy tanks.

 These days many use floatation therapy to ease painful physical conditions and discomfort as well as an aid to training mind and body what it feels like to truly relax before sleep.
