What is floatation and how could it benefit

Your brain uses a lot of power to deal with the huge strain that gravity places on the body. In a floatation cabin, your body is totally supported and you feel weightless. With little else for your brain to do, every muscle can fully relax.

With no commands needing to be sent out, activity in the logical side of the brain (left side) slows down until it synchronises with the creative side (right side). This leaves you in a dream-like state, similar to that experienced just before you go to sleep. In this state, your brain releases vast amounts of endorphins, a 'feel good' chemical and the bodies natural pain killer.

Whilst the state of relaxation may be deep and profound, your brain will stay dreamily alert. To get technical, the brain gradually shifts from its usual alpha state to generate theta waves. This is also the state of mind that Buddhist monks try to reach though hours of meditation and years of training. You could achieve this within 1 hour using floatation!

Who can use floatation?
Sportsmen and women. Used by Olympic athletes, floatation may help recovery from injury and increase energy. It can also provide an ideal space for visualisation.

Business people. By helping to eliminate stress, floatation can promote creative whole brain thinking.

Heavily pregnant women/Frequent flyers Get enormous relief from the soothing water and the complete support that it offers. It's a wonderful haven to escape to!

Individuals living with pain and other ailments. Floating causes the body to release endorphins (the body's own painkiller) and, in particular, beta-endorphins. This gives it the potential to help in the treatment of pain and a number of other ailments.
Floatation may also be beneficial for those living with autism, creating a placid environment that aids wellbeing and anyone looking to rest and relax away from the constant environmental stimualtion of modern life
