Sydney Float Centre
Emerging disciplines in alternative healthcare continue to evolve, and nothing has been a more exciting development than sensory deprivation therapy; now available at Haikoo Massage & Float, your local Sydney float centre.
Sensory deprivation is a therapeutic technique based on specially designed tanks. These tanks are essentially large baths that are filled with water and air that are the perfect temperature to be indistinguishable from our own bodies. The water is also salted to the exact level required for effortless floatation.
Once the individual is lying in the water, the tank’s lid is closed, sealing out all outside light and sound. The individual is isolated from all external stimuli, and because they are floating in body temperature water, the entire floating sensation is minimised to the point it can’t be felt.
Why You Should Visit our Sydney Float Centre
You might be confused why such an experience has become so popular in recent years. The popularity of every float centre is built around the positive health benefits of sensory deprivation.
The effects of floating in a sensory deprivation tank are often described as a chance to reset and disengage your psyche. It’s an opportunity to take a break from the huge number of sensory inputs we are subjected to every day, and letting our minds rest in a unique and empty environment.
That chance to rest is the primary effect of the therapy, and can have extremely positive ramifications for health. Mentally, patients experience reduced stress, heightened states of relaxation, lowered anxiety, improved sleep, and improved mood.
The physical results can be similarly impressive. Patients have experienced reduced back pain and lower levels of aggravation from long term injuries. The therapy also releases endorphins and lowers cortisol, decreasing the physical causes of stress. Perhaps most impressively, patients report faster recovery from injury or physical activities, and overall better results from physical therapy.
While sensory deprivation therapy may sound daunting, don’t be fooled. Here at Haikoo we are experts in providing therapeutic care, and have the professionalism and knowledge to ensure that your treatment will be positive.
