The clinical term for float therapy, also known as isolation therapy is R.E.S.T: Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy. The term was coined by neuroscientist, Dr. John C Lilly.
Floatation therapy is the process of lying in a pod of warm water (94*) with a lot (~1000 lbs) of Epsom salt (pharmaceutical grade). By maintaining the water temperature at your body temperature there is no stimulation caused by the water, allowing your mind to not detect where the water touches your body. Float therapy creates a natural decompression period for the body to completely “let go” & allow you to experience the many benefits of floating. One hour of float therapy is equivalent to four hours of deep sleep.
Floating is a wonderful way to nurture your mind, body and spirit. These positive effects are cumulative, so be sure to float regularly!
