How does floatation therapy work?
Floatation therapy works simply by providing the brain with a break from its routine trask of managing external stimuli which is constant and uses a tremendous amount of brain processing power.
When these external stimuli are removed from the equation of existence, the brain is left with a tremendous amount of unused brain processing power which the brain channels towards recalibrating all chemical and motor functions while simultaneously allowing the individual to go into ‘deep rest mode’ where the subconscious mind becomes more active than the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind is actually much more powerful than the conscious mind when it comes to managing our biological functions and flotation therapy allows the subconscious mind to take over and become dominant.
