Flouting seanss

A therapeutic session in a flotation tank lasts for forty-five minutes. For the first twenty minutes, it is reportedly possible to experience itching in various parts of the body (a phenomenon also reported to be common during the early stages of meditation). The last twenty-five minutes often end with a transition from beta or alpha brainwaves to theta, which typically occurs briefly before sleep and again at waking. In a float tank, the theta state can last for several minutes without the subject losing consciousness. Many use the extended theta state as a tool for enhanced creativity and problem-solving. The more often the tank is used the longer the theta period becomes.   Floating can be passive or active, depending on the purpose.

For relaxation, one simply floats and ‘clears the mind.’ Active floating has many different techniques. One may perform meditation, mantras, self-hypnosis, utilize educational programs, etc. The idea of active floating is that, when the body is relaxed, the mind becomes highly suggestible and any action taken during these states will enter the information into the sub-conscious.   Apart from being the ultimate “stress buster”, floating has been shown to alleviate asthma, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, gastrointestinal and cardiovascular disorders. Tension related problems such as migraine, back-ache and insomnia helped enormously.
