Float Therapy Man Meditating

In our lives today, the expectations placed on us by family, employers, peer pressure and society in general, have all lead to increased stress. We work longer hours, to earn more money to pay the piper, all in an attempt to relieve the pressure. In turn we drink alcohol, caffeine, smoke, don’t eat or eat too much, at best not as healthily as we should. All this translates to too much stress on our bodies with too little time to rejuvenate and relax. There is little or no time at all allocated to gym time, fitness, meditation, massage or just general downtime which is proven to relieve our tension.

10 Reasons To Use a Sensory Deprivation Tank as a way to Relax

Does the idea of floating away your stress sound good to you? A Sensory Deprivation Tank may not sound like it but read on as to why it is the best way to unwind.

Based on the concept of sensory deprivation from decades ago, the health benefits alone mean people should do it every day. The science behind Float Therapy is solid, backed by decades of research. Also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (or REST), this involves you getting inside a pitch-black float tank filled with salty water for a minimum of an hour. With no external stimuli; no light, no smell, no touch and no sound except for your own heartbeat, your brain is deprived of any input. The result is a meditation-like experience putting you in a state of being half-awake and half-asleep. This is what people who know mediation spend years striving for. Floating can get you there in 30 mins.

Still not convinced to try it out?
