WHAT IS FLOATING?

Inside the floatation tank 500 kg of specially formulated salts imported directly from Germany and added to 1000 liters of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t.

The buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body, and brings the individual close to an experience of total weightlessness. Unless you are an astronaut, this is the only situation you will encounter where your body is free from the harmful forces of gravity.

With ear plugs in and, if you wish, the tank’s interior lights off, the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deep- est state of relaxation possible.

A huge amount of brain power is used every second in order to deal with the strain that gravity places on one’s body but now floating weightlessly your body is perfectly supported by a cushion of silky skin-temperature liquid.

Freed from all sensation of gravity, temperature, touch, sight and sound (which together account for 90% of normal 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, strengthening resistance to and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.

With no commands needing to be sent out, the logical side of the brain is rendered redundant, and its activity slows down until it synchronizes with the creative side. This leaves the individual in a dream-like state, akin to the thoughts experienced just before you go to sleep. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins. 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, the state-of-mind 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 silky warm sea of bliss that is the floatation experience!

WHAT IS A FLOAT TANK?

Floatation tanks are a light and sound-free environment…

…Containing twelve inches of water with 550kg of Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulphate) dissolved inside. The water is heated to skin temperature, so that once you are settled in the tank, the sensation of water on your skin will slowly fade away. It will be as though the outside world have quietly faded away, leaving you in your own space for relaxation. The buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the feeling of gravity on the body, bringing you close to an experience of total weightlessness. This gives you the perfect environment to allow your physical body to release the daily strain on your body. With ear plugs in, and the tank’s interior lights off, the quietness and darkness allows the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation possible.

Floating Releases Endorphins:

Reaching a restful state in the zero-gravity environment in a floatation tank, the brain would begin a fascinating process. Endorphins are released by the brain as you float in the tank. These are powerful natural pain relievers and mood enhancers that promote a sense of well-being. It will also further enhance the healing benefits and sensation of relaxation created by the zero gravity environment.

Meditative State of Relaxation:

Aside from endorphins released by the brain, your brainwaves will also shift into a theta state. Theta brainwaves are a rare brain state, normally achievable by people trained extensively in meditation. Floating can be considered as a short cut to achieving the deepest state of mind, and well being.

Float Facts:

No matter how long you float, your skin will not form any wrinkles that are normally associated with prolong water soaking. The salt is continually absorbed by the skin, allowing the skin to remain smooth and supple.

Your bodyabsorbs an abundance of healthy minerals such as magnesium and sulphates through the skin. Both minerals are available in Epsom salt. One hour in the Dreampod will allow you to supplement your body’s requirement of magnesium.

Floating reduces stress on the back, hips and joints. This is also beneficial to people with very sore muscles.

Magnesium is a natural sedative, it will help relieve muscle aches, back pain, migraines, insomnia and much more.

Promotes total mental and physical calmness.

Improves blood circulation and the distribution of oxygen and nutrients.

Reduces blood pressure and heart rate, giving the body a natural way to release stress.

WHAT ARE DREAMSCAPES?

DreamScapes are like landscapes for the mind.

Using sounds, music, entrainment and guided imagery, they first of all relax the conscious mind, then gently engage and transport the floater to a place of deep learning in the subconscious where they can alter behavior, improve performance and relieve physical conditions far more effectively than with floating alone.

Each is one hour long, they are easy to follow and unlike simple relaxation sessions off the web, they are specifically designed to be used in the float environment.

A specialist in subconscious reeducation & training

Dr. Jason Gregg is an Australian national who spent 20 years in the US. It was early in his clinical career that he began to explore alternative ways to overcome the frequent failure of traditional therapies to provide long-lasting, sustainable change. Thus began a lifelong study into the use of subconscious re-education and recorded sounds to modify behavior and enhance human performance. As well as traditional cognitive therapies, he has studied biofeedback, clinical hypnosis, and the effects of orthomolecular nutrition on aging. He holds several patents for unique methods of brainwave entrainment, and has produced behavioral modification sessions that are currently used in more than 20 countries.

How To Hack Your Brain.

While you float in your Dreampod, the DreamScape Elements programs provide a safe and effective way to study the past and rehearse alternative ways of acting in the future. The powerful conditioning sessions utilize the neuroplasticity of the brain to modify unwanted behavior, building new neural pathways to learning.

That’s the foundation of the unique Elements sessions — establishing ways to create and validate a set of trials or experiences upon which the mind can produce certain predictable effects and powerful affirmations that then enter the subconscious to be enacted.

By introducing new concepts and ideas in a modified state of relaxed awareness, you are able to bypass the inherent doubt of the conscious mind and examine, reflect and adopt new ways of thinking without the distraction of the outside world.

DreamScape Elements provide the ‘permission to believe’ that we can really change our lives and be the person we want to be.

YOUR BODY HEARS EVERYTHING YOUR MIND SAYS. STAY POSITIVE!
