What effects does floating in a flotation pool have on the body?
Floating is a wonderful way of attaining the deepest relaxation – it has been said that just one hour of floating can have the effect of four hours of deep sleep.
In the gravity free environment the body balances and heals internally as all the senses are rested. Research shows that floating measurably reduces bloody pressure and heart rate whilst lowering the levels of stress related chemicals in the body. Old injuries and aches, (especially backache) experience relief as floating helps blood circulation.
Flotation therapy is used widely in the treatment of stress, anxiety, jet lag and to improve concentration and creativity. Sports performance and ‘wind-down’ is also enhanced during floating. Also, one hour of floating has the restorative effects of 4 hours of sleep!
What effects does floating in a flotation pool have on the mind?
During a float, you produce slower brain-waves patterns, known as theta waves, which are normally experienced only during a deep meditation or just before falling asleep and when waking up. This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy, induced by the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates. Because of these effects, floating is used effectively in the treatment of depression and addictions, including smoking and alcohol. It is also used in schools and universities as tools for Super Learning.
Is floating successful for everyone?
Floating, as with other treatments, doesn’t suit everybody. It needs willingness on your part to let go and see what happens, and you may need to float a few times before you are able to relax completely, both physically and mentally. Depending on your own journey through life, a float might provide an hour of total physical relaxation – or a profound healing experience, emotionally and spiritually transforming. Floating can be a wonderful aid to opening doors into your inner world, gradually allowing access to those deeper levels at which real changes take place.
