Experience nothing in our superior, sensory deprivation tanks. This is a unique resolve to the worldly chaos, as you float for up to an hour in one of our pods.
In complete bliss, you will float in water that is kept at skin temperature, making it virtually imperceptible. Inside each of our deprivation pods, over 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt (magnesium sulfate), has been dissolved into the water, making the water denser than the Dead Sea. This allows you to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. Your body will be free from gravity and all stimulation from the outside world.
HOW FLOATING CAN BENEFIT YOU
stress & anxiety
60 minutes, completely to yourself. Away from the wordly chaos and responsibilities that keep you on edge. In an environment unlike anything you know, that may work wonders for your mind, body and soul. In a world that’s always on the go (and with no signs of slowing down), Modern Mindbody Massage + Float offers an ultra-relaxing oasis to unwind, unplug, renew and recharge, with effects that may last for weeks afterwards. The practice of floating can re-train your brain to develop a persistent serenity while diminishing anxiety and stress-related pain.
People float to manage pain resulting from arthritis, sports injuries, and pregnancy discomforts, in addition to improving many of the symptoms related to anxiety, depression and sleeplessness. Studies have shown Flotation REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) to improve chronic pain conditions by relieving physical and emotional stress for fibromyalgia patients, creating an ideal environment for pain relief and providing natural traction for a wide range of spine-related injuries.
For decades, floatation therapy has been the “best kept secret” of professional athletes like Steph Curry and J.J. Watt to stay in peak physical and mental condition. Now at Modern Mindbody Massage + Float, you can experience these same benefits for yourself. Because no matter what stage you’re in – and no matter what sport you play – there’s every chance that floating will help take your game to the next level.
Floating puts you in a deeply restful state. It has shown to regularly help reduce the symptoms of insomnia, and revealed that people who use float pods were able to fall asleep more easily, with the benefits of floating lasting for up to 12 weeks.
The average adult requires 7-9 hours of sleep a night to function optimally. Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety.
We've all heard stories of artists who claim that their sudden insight, revelation, or creative designs occurred in situations where their sensory input has been reduced. One of the fundamental elements of creative or imaginative thought, is concentration gained through some sort of sensory restriction or deprivation.
One of the explanations as to how many gain unexpected inspiration, physical relaxation, creativity and vivid imagery, particularly while their mind wanders off while gazing into the distance or just before entering their sleep stage, is the influence of the theta state (read more below).
brain injury &
Methods to manage concussions are constantly changing. Due to every case being different, there is no simple timetable for recovery. Some people recover in days, others require weeks or months and some may endure long-term effects.
The float pod can expedite this process and works well in tandem with all other therapies. Similar to the way that Olympic athletes like Ali Raisman and elite athletes such as Steph Curry, Tom Brady and JJ. Watt use float pods for recovery, many athletes, amateur or professional, have found their way to resolve lingering issues from a traumatic brain injury or concussion due to floating.
Floating feels like nothing, which is (unsurprisingly) difficult to describe.
In today's incredibly stimulating day to day life, where everything is trying to capture your attention, to experience "nothing" is something that seems so out of reach... but, lucky for you, it isn't!
The float pod experience results in very little external stimuli and allows your mind and body room to relax, recover and recharge, unlike anything you've experienced before.
PTSD + trauma
Clinical research has proven floating has a profound effect on post-traumatic stress disorder and other stress and pain-related conditions. Float therapy mimics the effects of meditation and medication often prescribed to manage anxiety, depression and pain in active and former military members. By shutting down the “fight or flight” response that cause PTSD, insomnia and more, float therapy can profoundly mitigate the struggles veterans face on a daily basis.
The density of the saltwater puts the floater in an environment where approximately 60% of the gravity we usually feel is no longer affecting our body . We use a large portion of our mental and physical resources in day to day life. Relief of this effort leaves our body with a surplus of energy and processing power at its disposal. This gravity-reduced environment allows our body to decompress, especially throughout the joints and spinal column.
Theta state - REM
Enhanced creativity from the theta state: so what is it?
We use different brain waves for different activities we do in day-to-day activities. Theta waves are observed just before falling asleep or right after waking up. The theta brainwave pattern is associated with lucid dream states, creativity, meditation, and daydreams.
So what’s so good about theta? The theta state has been found to be associated with feelings of well-being, creativity, improved relationships, social adeptness, decreased stress, and other negative emotions such as anger, anxiety, etc. This in turn helps decrease your chances of stress-related illnesses such as heart disease and stroke, and mental problems such as depression and anxiety disorders.
