Think no pain and total relaxation with sensory deprivation a.k.a float therapy at Transitions Float Therapy located at 14141 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach. This is a brand-new concept in relaxation and pain relief therapy through the concept of sensory deprivation.
A sensory deprivation tank, also called an isolation tank or flotation tank, is used for restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST). It is a dark, soundproof tank that is filled with a foot or less of very dense salt water. The first tank was designed in 1954 by John C. Lilly, an American physician and neuroscientist. In the 1970s, viable float tanks were created and began being studied for probable health benefits. These days, finding a sensory deprivation tank is easy, with float centers and spas offering float therapy.
The idea of sensory deprivation is to block out or remove all sensory input including light and sound. During the float experience these are both optional throughout the practice. It is encouraged you to try turning them both off and permit your mind the eventual disconnect and a better opportunity of reaching the Theta State.
Theta brainwaves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in deep meditation. Theta is our gateway to learning, memory, and intuition. In theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within.
Float therapy has grown in popularity may be due in part to the scientific evidence.Studies suggest time spent floating in a sensory deprivation tank may have benefits in healthy people, such as muscle relaxation, better sleep, decrease in pain, and decreased stress and anxiety.
A floatation pod is approximately 8 feet long and 4 and half feet tall. It is somewhat shaped like a giant egg. Each floatation pod has 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt dissolved in each pod. This quantity of Epsom Salt is approximately 10% more dense than the Dead Sea. This density allows the body to float easily, while resting in the water. The density of salt encourages a “zero gravity” experience. The floatation therapy session has an implausible impact on relieving pressure on the back and joints.
Here’s the deal…the float pod is the most common float tank you will see. You can close the lid fully (as recommended) or leave it partially or fully open. The light and audio controls inside the pod give you full control over your experience. The pod is specifically designed to maintain a perfect balance of air and water temperature using passive airflow to keep the session totally senseless. The pod enables sensory deprivation. Try it!
