Float Pod Session
We fill the floatation tank with 1200 pounds of Epsom salts added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30-centimetre deep solution heated to 91.5 degrees Fahrenheit (skin temperature).
The water’s temperature means that it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that contact the water and those that aren’t once you settle in.
The buoyancy created by the dense Epsom salt solution effectively removes gravity’s effects on the body and brings the individual close to total weightlessness. Unless you are an astronaut, this is the only situation where your body is free from gravity’s destructive forces.
With earplugs in and the tank’s interior lights off upon request, the quiet and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the most profound state of relaxation.
Every second uses a vast amount of brainpower to deal with the strain that gravity places on one’s body. When floating weightlessly, however, a cushion of silky skin-temperature liquid wholly supports your body.
Freed from gravity’s sensations, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of regular neuromuscular activity), you conserve and redirect vast amounts of natural physical and mental energy.
The ultra-deep relaxation of floating “resets” the body’s hormonal and metabolic balance, strengthens resistance to and accelerates recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury, or strenuous exercise.
With no commands needing to emit, the brain’s logical side is rendered redundant and slows down activity until it synchronizes with the creative side. This synchronicity leaves the individual in a dream-like state akin to the thoughts experienced just before you go to sleep. The brain releases vast amounts of endorphins in this state.
While the state of relaxation may be deep and profound, the individual’s brain stays dreamily alert. The brain gradually shifts from its usual waking beta state to generate deep alpha, theta or even delta waves, ones that Buddhist monks try to reach through hours of meditation and years of training. You can achieve this in a matter of minutes just by lying back into the smooth, warm sea of bliss that is the floatation experience!
