Rest House Float Centre Explains The Science Behind Flotation Tank Therapy

Floatation tank therapy is a fairly modern treatment aiding a variety of conditions and enhancing both mental and physical health. It induces deep relaxation, improve mental capacity, promote healing of the skin and muscles, and aid recovery from physical exertion.

Floatation therapy which involves placing individuals in tanks/ pods or compartments, that ‘blots’ out the sensory system which keeps the average human’s brain pretty much occupied for most of life is quickly becoming a popular phenomenon in medical science. This invention that hails from the psychedelic era is being seen as an effective method by medical practitioners to treat some of the most incessant ailments that plague the general populace on the planet.

According to doctors and scientists floatation therapy is actually effective in treating anything from chronic pain, discomforts related to PMS, recovery from different types of injury or even arthritis and the beauty about floatation therapy is that it helps to cure, or reduce the impact of these above mentioned ailments without the use of drugs or invasive surgery.

Currently there are many medical facilities including Rest House Float Centre Melbourne that feature floatation tank therapy as a part of their medical treatment program as a supporting element in helping patients towards recovery. Based on a study published in EJIM (European Journal of Integrative Medicine) the mechanics that make floatation therapy so effective is simply due to the ‘deep relaxation’ that floatation therapy induces by ‘relieving’ the mind from contending with the sensory system which includes sight, sound, heat, smell and most of all the biggest ‘brain drainer’ gravity.

According to Rest House Float Centre, this reprieve from contending from all these external stimuli, allows the brain to stop focusing on externalities and reroutes the brains immense resources towards ‘inward healing’ which seems to be the secret behind the wondrous results floatation therapy produces.

To explain the matter from a simpler perspective, what actually happens when one is placed inside a floatation therapy tank or a sensory deprivation tank as what some call it, is that the person inside the tank will not be bothered by light, sound and smell, due to the ‘sealed’ aspect of these sensory deprivation tanks and apart from that the temperature of the Epsom salt solution is maintained at skin temperature, which causes the brain to be unable to tell the difference between the parts of the body that is submerged and the parts that are not, and finally, the Epsom salt solution does not allow one to sink due to the concentration of the salt which is the same affect that the dead sea has, whereby they are unable to ‘sink’ and thus all the external stimuli that keeps bombarding the brain constantly are removed, which releases a vast amount of ‘brain power’ that the brain diverts to other areas of our biological constructs.

To explain the matter in a more simplistic way the mechanics behind floatation therapy cannot be attributed to just the physical subjection of the body to floatation therapy, but because of the mental intervention that floatation therapy causes by releasing an enormous amount of brain processing power that is possible when most external stimuli that usually keeps the mind engaged all the time is removed.

When external stimuli is effectively rendered ‘non-existent’ the mind deems the situation as ‘safe’ and the constant ‘readiness’ or alert mode that the brain has to be in which is related to the ‘fight or flight’ response is kept at bay and the brain moves into a ‘deep relaxed’ state where brain frequencies reach ‘lows’ that only Yogis that have been practicing meditation for years are able to achieve.

In other words, floatation therapy provides people with a short cut to reach these ‘deep relaxation’ states that provide the brains with a ‘window of opportunity’ to reconfigure or optimise the entire biological mechanics and chemistry.

Other added benefits that floatation therapy provides those who ‘float’ once or twice a week is better skin, enhanced detoxification rates, enhanced nervous system functions due to the high magnesium content in the Epsom salt solution and higher levels of concentration and creativity.
