What Is Sensory Deprivation?

The process of sensory deprivation, commonly referred to as flotation therapy or isolation tank therapy, includes floating in a sensory deprivation tank. The tanks are made to provide a space free of outside stimuli, allowing the user to float effortlessly in warm water with lots of Epsom salt.

The water in the tanks is normally kept at skin temperature to lessen the sense of touch, and the tanks are typically soundproof and lightproof. The mind and body can then experience a deep level of relaxation and calm, which promotes rest and renewal.

Sensory deprivation therapy is a non-invasive and natural way to improve overall wellness. It’s also a great way to take a break from the constant stimulation of modern life and reconnect with oneself.

At our centre, we ensure that the tanks are kept in pristine condition, and our staff is always on hand to answer any questions and make sure that clients have the best experience possible.

Benefits of Floatation Therapy

Sensory deprivation, also known as floatation therapy, is a therapeutic technique that involves reducing external stimuli to the senses in order to promote relaxation and a sense of well-being. The benefits of floatation therapy include:

  • Stress reduction: Floating in a sensory deprivation tank can help to lower levels of cortisol, the hormone associated with stress, in the body.

  • Relaxation: The absence of external stimuli in the floatation tank can promote a deep state of relaxation, similar to that achieved through meditation or yoga.

  • Improved sleep: Floatation therapy can help to improve the quality of sleep by reducing muscle tension and anxiety.

  • Pain relief: The buoyancy of the water in the floatation tank can help to reduce pressure on joints and muscles, providing relief from chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and lower back pain.

  • Improved focus and creativity: Floatation therapy can help to improve focus and creativity by reducing distractions and allowing the mind to enter a state of deep relaxation.

  • Increased endorphins: Floating in the deprivation tank can increase the level of endorphins, which are natural chemicals in the brain that produce feelings of euphoria and well-being.

  • Assist with mental conditions: Some studies have shown that floatation therapy can be beneficial in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

In general, Sensory Deprivation / Floatation Therapy is a non-invasive, safe, and effective way to reduce stress, promote relaxation, and improve overall well-being.
