The load on the musculoskeletal system is removed.
Floating is an easy way to relax, rejuvenate and get rid of stress, in a convenient capsule, with high-density sea water that simulates weightlessness. Floating is a safe, fast and affordable way of total relaxation.
Let’s talk about floating in the sensory deprivation chamber. Floating just in the sea/outdoor pool/water mattress is not considered floating.
In English literature, this device is called a tank. It looks like this:
Sensory deprivation chamber
Very salty water inside. For this, Epsom salt is used. You can read about the pros and therapeutic effects of this salt separately. The main thing is that now you can lie on the surface of the water without fear that your head will be under water.
Sensory deprivation cameras were developed as a result of the search for ways to pick up signals from the brain without stimuli. People, light, sound – could act as irritants. Roughly speaking, the purity of the experiment was needed. In addition, gravity acted on the vessels of the brain, and the scientists decided to soften this force by positioning the bodies of the subjects in the water. It was in 1954.
The brain emits theta waves, as in REM sleep
In addition to brain research, a side effect was noticed that even taking into account the fact that a person is in a closed dark space, he relaxes and does not get nervous. Moreover, during the experiments, it was possible to consciously enter an altered state of consciousness. This is the state on the verge of sleep and reality. But at the same time, without falling asleep (I will tell you about this experience, mine, at the end). Moreover, they found that this state can be controlled there.
Imagine that you are not sleeping, but that you can consciously dream. dive into the depths of consciousness and subconsciousness and easily pull out the images that you need. But at the same time you do not sleep.
The first bonus is relaxation. Floating allows you to relax your mind and body. Even if you are heavily loaded with something, after the session you will be loaded many times less.
Relaxation of physiology. When you are in a capsule, you clearly know where you are pinched, overstressed and skewed. You just can’t lie flat on your back if there are spasms somewhere. It will start to hurt right away, because gravity no longer presses down. And what can relax – it will begin to do so.Deprivation session relieves anxiety of various origins
If something cannot relax right away, it will be tense. H stressed parts are often balanced by other parts. And if they relaxed too, then severe discomfort will begin in the tense parts.
A state close to meditation
Floating is officially prescribed as a therapy for anxiety and depression. Indeed, when you leave the cell, you feel as peaceful as possible. Depression is thought to be caused by high levels of cortisol and ACTH (a hormone that stimulates the production of cortisol). Cortisol is a hormone that helps to survive, but it is also an anxiety hormone and in large quantities leads to anxiety. These hormones do not form ALL types of depression, but only subtypes associated with social interactions, when someone is suppressing or we feel helpless.
Starts the renewal of brain processes
Floating helps our cognitive abilities work differently. Better.
More efficient. Students grasp complex concepts more easily and apply new approaches.
Of course, you can use floating to memorize words, but it’s like shooting sparrows from a cannon. Floating helps to get off the ground and see more solutions, opportunities, and in general everything is different. There will be a lot of ideas after the floating course. The course is not just one session. at least 5 – 7.
