Floatation Therapy is a therapeutic process of floating in a tank or cabin with a 1000 pounds of Epsom salts and all your sensory input is reduced.
REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy)
By eliminating light, sound, gravity (approximately 85%) and neutralizing the temperature to skin temperature (approximately 93.5 – 95 degrees Fahrenheit) , along with the social stimulation of other people and social roles, this state can allow the brain and body to go into a deep relaxed and meditative state.
Brain Wave State
While floating, the brain transitions from a wakeful Beta brain wave state to a wakeful and relaxed Alpha brain wave state to a deep meditative Theta brain wave state. Whilst in the Theta brain wave state, possibilities are boundless and the brain is in a creative, inspired and sometimes spiritual state of being.
In each tank there is 1000 pounds of epsom salts. This creates a very sterile environment along with a strong bouncy effect, similar to what people experience whilst floating in the Dead Sea. Research is showing that many people are magnesium deficient and one of the best ways to absorb magnesium is through the skin. One of the benefits of absorbing it through the skin is that you don’t get the diarrhea that is often associated with taking magnesium orally.
