With the luxury of flotation therapy, you can easily and conveniently relax your body, relieve your mind of a plethora of stress drivers, improve your skin health, and boost your overall energy level, health and wellness.

Flotation therapy, also called floating, essentially requires you to float in a relaxing pool filled with salt water. As you float, you experience a feeling of extreme lightness and weightlessness, which is similar to the feeling you get in the waters of the Dead Sea.

Why? Because this water, which is treated with salt, contains a saturated saline solution that is gently heated to the temperature of your skin (35.5°C). The pool is usually kept in a completely dark and quiet place, because it has been observed that up to 80% of the stress and workload of the human brain exists because it processes and reflects on external environmental stimuli.

When you float in this isolated pool, all kinds of eternal stimulation are screened out. As that happens, the mind creates a more imaginative space and room for creative ideas as well as self-awareness take shape. The many muscle groups and tissues in the mind get a chance to delve into a state of deep relaxation.

When was float therapy discovered?

The floatation tank was discovered in the mid-fifties by Professor Dr. John C. Lilly (1915 – 2001), a famous neurophysiologist, when he was on assignment for the National Institute for Mental Health.

During this hour, there were two clashing observations about how the human brain responds under sensory deprivation. On one hand, people argued that the brain would shrink its activity to an extent that the brain cells would die off if all kinds of external stimulation were to be screened out.

Lilly, however, stood convinced that the opposite was true and proved his theory by establishing the first flotation tank in 1954. In a number of other experiments that followed, he proved that certain activities in the brain are triggered when the senses are deprived and that during those isolated and long hours in the tank, a person is likely to experience several moments of imagination and creativity.

Lilly carefully examined the effects of the tank for a number of decades on his staff and himself too, but ultimately floated away from his employer.

He made the whole world aware of the tank and its beneficial effects and carried on his research and studies in an institute he founded for this purpose. Lilly spent the remainder of his life in Maui, Hawaii where he researched dolphins, and died in 2001.

OmniLux – Step Into The Light

What is all the Fuss about with Medical Omnilux Light Therapy? Lets explore

How does it work?

As we grow older, the cells that manufacture the skin’s supportive structures begin to slow down. Environmental damage from the sun’s rays speed up this process and produce free radicals that damage the skin and the cells that produce collagen and elastin. Omnilux™ combination light therapy targets specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures, leading to a softening of fine lines and improved skin tone.

Who can benefit?

This treatment is beneficial and effective for both men and women of all ages and skin types.

Each treatment session will take approximately 20 minutes. You will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after the treatment. Following your 20-minute session, you can go right back to your normal routine.

What results can be expected?

The initial effects you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After the course of treatments you will begin to notice an improvement in tone, clarity and texture.

How long will it last?

Unlike other treatments, where the effects are short lived, OMNILUX™ Combination Light Therapy stimulates natural cellular processes that rejuvenate and repair the skin. Thus, the results you see with OMNILUX™ continue to improve for up to 4 to 6 months

How many treatments are needed?

This depends upon your individual treatment régime, but 9 OMNILUX™ sessions closely together (weekly or bi-weekly) show excellent results both immediately and longer term.

Omnilux plus™ in combination with Omnilux revive™ stimulates the deeper skin tissue, leading to a softening of fine lines, improved skin tone and super smooth skin.

It can also be successfully used with injectables, chemical peels and other popular aesthetic treatments.

The different lights target specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures. The composite effect leaves the skin fuller and tighter in appearance.

Skin Rejuvenation

Omnilux revive™ stimulates cellular activity. As cellular activity increases cells become more permeable and responsive to exogenous factors. Blood flow increases, leading to greater tissue oxygenation and detoxification. Skin appears clearer with less fine lines, is plumped up and hydrated.

The effect of active skincare products can be greatly enhanced.

FLOATING Theories Explained…

Why is floating so effective ?

There have been numerous scientific studies around the world that leave no doubt that floating has a positive effect on our mind and bodies..

So what is it about a pod filled with lukewarm water and Epsom Salts that evokes such a powerful response ?

For a start the magnesium in the Epsom Salts has massive health benefits for the body .. EVERY cell in the human body needs magnesium to function properly.. Many of us are magnesium deficient and floating provides the best way to infuse this wonderful and essential mineral into our bodies..

According to Michael Hutchinson author of “The Book of Floating” there are seven theories of floating

Anti Gravity

The bouyant nature of the Epsom Salts in the water leaves the floater weightless and free from gravity. Gravity is a leading cause of health problems with bad backs, aching feet, muscle tension and sore joints. By freeing the body from gravity, the floater is more able to deal with matters of the mind, body, spirit and self awareness

Brainwave

We have all probably heard about alpha and theta brainwaves.. Alpha waves are generated in moments of relaxation however it has been found that the deeper, slower meditative theta waves are able to be achieved when floating. Theta waves are accompanied by sudden insights, inspired creativity, feelings of serenity and a oneness with the universe.. It is an enlightened state which usually ends with the subject falling asleep.. Some Monks spend years meditating to achieve this state while staying mentally alert . Floating can help increase these creativity producing theta waves and leave the floater feeling the effects for weeks afterwards.

Left Brain Right Brain

The two sides of the brain operate in different modes. The left side is detailed and analytical. It is the dominant side . The right side is intuitive and absorbs information. Floating can increase the minor right hemisphere brain function..

Three Brain

A leading brain researcher in the US , Paul MacLean has conducted studies over the past 25 years which show compelling evidence that the human brain has 3 psychological layers. This is called the Triune Brain Theory.

The first and most ancient layer is the Reptile Brain controlling self preservation, reproductive and life sustaining functions.
The next layer is the Iambic or Visceral Brain which controls our emotions.
The most recent layer in our evolutionary history is the Neocortex or the Thinking Cap .. The 3 brains don’t communicate well most of the time however in the floating environment, the 3 brains are able to come together in harmony and provide a peak experience.

Neurochemical

Our brains secrete hormones that make us happy, sad, anxious, sexy, sleepy etc.. Floating has been shown to increase the secretion of endorphins which make us feel good while reducing the amount of stress related hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline.. These neuro chemicals are related to hypertension, heart disease and high cholesterol.

Biofeedback

Interestingly biofeedback research has shown that we can learn to exercise control over every cell in our bodies.. Processes such as the rhythm of brainwaves, blood pressure, healing, heart contractions, smooth muscle tension and the secretion of hormones were all thought to be involuntary. The floating environment works like an organic biofeedback machine allowing concentration by shutting off external influences allowing the mind to deeply relax and focus on any part of the body.

Homeostasis

The body constantly works to maintain homeostasis.. the optimal state of balance, harmony, equilibrium and stability.. Stress can be defined as a disruption in this optimal state.. When floating all external stimuli is excluded therefore allowing the mind and body to return to comfortable homeostasis .. Research shows that many of the powerful effects of floating come from this state.

So if you needed any more reasons to give floating a try, there you have it 😊
