Float Therapy is a relatively new concept in relaxation and pain relief therapy through the concept of sensory deprivation. Experience total relaxation in solitude at Transitions Float Therapy located at 14141 U.S. Highway One, Juno Beach. The idea of sensory deprivation is to block out or remove all sensory input including light and sound. These days, finding a sensory deprivation tank is easy, with float centers and spas offering float therapy.
Step into a sensory deprivation tank, also known as an isolation tank or flotation tank, it is used specifically for restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST). It is a dark, soundproof tank that is filled with a foot or less of very dense saltwater. During the float experience, these are both optional throughout the practice. It is encouraged you to try turning them both off and permit your mind the eventual disconnect and a better opportunity of reaching the Theta State.
Theta brainwaves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in deep meditation. Theta is our gateway to learning, memory, and intuition. In theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within.
A floatation pod is approximately eight feet long and four and a half feet tall. It is somewhat shaped like a giant egg. Each floatation pod has 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt dissolved in each pod. This quantity of Epsom Salt is approximately 10% denser than the Dead Sea. This density allows the body to float easily while resting in the water. The density of salt encourages a “zero gravity” experience. The floatation therapy session has an implausible impact on relieving pressure on the back and joints.
You can close the lid fully or leave it partially or fully open. The light and audio controls inside the pod give you full control over your experience. The pod is specifically designed to maintain a perfect balance of air and water temperature using passive airflow to keep the session senseless.
