Floating was first discovered 60 years ago through research by John C. Lilyan American physician, neuroscientist, psychoanalyst, philosopher, writer and inventor. Floating goes by a number of names such as REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy) and sensory deprivation. Floatation tanks or spas are designed to block out the and isolate you from the outside world.
Reasons people float include stress reduction, chronic pain, injury recovery, pregnancy discomfort, anxiety, PTSD, and sleep improvement. Floating brings about a deep relaxation unlike any other. Floating gives a break to your central nervous system. Floating decreases the release of hormones and neurotransmitters which are a stress to your body and increases the flow of beneficial feel good endorphins. The warm salt heavy water supports your body and leaves you floating effortlessly on the surface of the water. Your body floats and your mind drifts away.
The Relaxation Center has two float tanks and can accommodate two floaters at a time each in their own unit.
