Many people use flotation to explore their deeper self and creative being. Floating allows you the opportunity to turn off the outside world. Since your body isn’t fighting gravity in the float tank and your brain isn’t busy trying to process a hundred million sensations all at once, your mind is left free to explore rather amazing things. We are free to explore all corners of ourselves courtesy of the float tank… and Theta brainwaves of course.
In theta state, we can achieve so much. Theta state is normally reached right before we fall asleep (the elusive in between awake & sleep moments). It typically takes years of practice to achieve theta state through deep meditation. With floating, you can start producing theta brainwaves after about half an hour. Think of it as a helpful tool for your meditation practice or a meditation “fast track” for those of us who lack the practice. Did you know that a nap after studying helps to retain what you learned? Theta state helps to increase our learning capabilities as well as the rate at which we are able to absorb the material we learn (recall). Therefore, floating after studying can help you study more effectively.
To help facilitate your moving into theta or delta brain waves, we play Isochronic Tones during the beginning and end of your float session. You can even opt to have them during the entire session.
What are Isochronic Tones?
Isochronic tones are a very effective audio-based method of stimulating the brain. You may have heard of another method called binaural beats. Both of these methods are examples of a complex neurological process known as brainwave entrainment (pronounced: “ehn – TRAIN – mint”), which enables the use of audio or visual stimuli to affect the brain and help people with a variety of problems.
