One hour of floating is equal to several hours of deep sleep!
Floating was invented in the 1950s by American neuroscientist Dr. John Lilly for research on the mind. He needed to eliminate incoming sensory information to create a control group for his experiments and ended up discovering that reducing sensory input has a load of benefits that far superseded the experiments he was doing.
Since the 1980’s, Research has demonstrated that Floatation Therapy has a significantly more powerful relaxation response than ANY other therapy/technique known to science. The response is passive and happens automatically without the need for training or practice. The benefits are immediate!
Here are some Float Positions to Try
One of the Unique features of Floatation R.E.S.T is that after 10-20 minutes of floating, the THETA brain waves, which are present during sleep, relaxation, dreaming, meditation and hypnosis, become predominant and remain the duration of the float session.
