Floatation is about ‘letting go’ and immersing yourself within yourself. To allow your body and mind to relax like it never has before, you will never have experienced relaxation like it.
There are many completed research studies on the benefits of floatation. The process of floatation is also known as, REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy). Evidence published so far suggests that Floatation-REST is a safe and effective technique for the rapid reduction of stress, pain, and anxiety.
The most consistent observation to date has been significant reductions in levels of subjective stress and increases in relaxation as measured from pre- to post-float. Connected with these subjective findings, floating has also been reported to decrease blood pressure, heart rate, and cortisol levels.
At Serenity Float you will float effortlessly within our state-of-the-art floatation pods. These pods are not only beautiful to look at, they are designed to give you the optimum float experience.
The water within the pod is maintained at skin temperature (35.5 degrees) and for the best experience (you may not feel brave enough initially) you totally deny all of your senses. The sensory deprivation is what makes the experience of Floatation so unique and beneficial. You can choose to turn the internally operated soft lighting off, and to have total silence. Once you have done this, your body will naturally relax. Your mind will switch off from ‘being’, it takes so much energy to just maintain normal function that when your body and mind are given this amazing opportunity to truly relax, nature will recharge your batteries. Both physically and mentally.
During your float your brain will stop producing alpha waves, and instead will begin to produce theta waves. Once this process begins, it is hoped you will reach Theta state. This is associated with advanced meditation and this is a truly unique opportunity for your body to naturally achieve that state of relaxation.
