What is flotation therapy?
Flotation therapy is also known as sensory deprivation or restricted environmental stimulation therapy or R.E.S.T. for short. R.E.S.T. is a better definition of what flotation therapy is, flotation therapy is the ultimate R.E.S.T. Your senses are not deprived, they are simply able to relax.
Flotation therapy or R.E.S.T. puts you in an environment unlike one you have ever experienced, and environment that defies gravity, embraces you in soothing comfort, and quiets the constant noise and distractions that rule our lives. Eliminating all these distractions opens you up to experience many things. Some people float for the incredible meditative effect it gives, others float for inspiration, pain relief, stress relief, or to simply relax and sleep.
Some think of flotation therapy as De-fragging the mind like you would your computer! The calming environment lets you sort through issues and clear your mind. After a flotation therapy session many people report experiencing less stress more relaxation and a sharper focus, and less pain or muscle tension. Flotation therapy’s effects are cumulative the more you float the more benefits you will see.
Why Float? Have you ever experienced complete silence? Or complete relaxation, no pressure on any part of your body or the feeling of floating free without limits? You can experience these by floating.
