SENSORY DEPRIVATION FLOAT THERAPY
RECHARGED BODY BALANCED MIND
Why float therapy?
Float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation tank, is a way to physically relax the body, calm the mind, and connect with your truest nature. By minimizing stimulation to the brain, your mind will have a real opportunity to rest and repair. It has been proven in a number of studies that floating regularly can help with anxiety, stress, depression and PTSD.
What are health benefits of floating?
The float tank is filled with 1000 pounds of epsom salt, creating a zero gravity environment. This gives your body an opportunity to naturally decompress in the weightless environment. The wonders of epsom salt have been well-known for hundreds of years and, unlike other salts, has beneficial properties that can soothe the body, mind, and soul. Some of the countless health benefits include:
relaxing the nervous system,
curing skin problems,
soothing back pain & aching limbs,
easing muscle strain, and
drawing toxins from the body
Epsom salt is incredibly high in magnesium which is absorbed though the skin.
How do we maintain our float tanks?
With our state-of-the-art pods, we have the highest level of water sanitation. Our water filters will clean the volume of water three times over between every single user. Our filtration systems use the Ozone purifying system, UV sterilization, and one micron bag skimmers to ensure the purest water possible. We also add a food-grade of hydrogen peroxide with is great for helping the body detoxify and, at the same time, add another level of sterilization.
We pride ourselves on our state-of-the-art float technologies.
FULL SPECTRUM INFRARED SAUNA
LIGHTEN UP & DETOX
How does the full spectra infrared sauna work?
The sun’s spectrum of electromagnetic radiation has an entire portion that is made up of near- mid- and far infrared—which we humans feel as heat. Each portion of the electromagnetic spectrum of light serves its own purpose—gamma rays are used to kill cancer cells, visible light allows for us to see, and infrared allows us to feel heat.
Why is a full spectrum infrared sauna so good for you?
There are three levels of infrared—near, mid, and far—that each resonate with the subcutaneous fat layer of the human body producing different healing responses. Let’s take a look at the three kinds of infrared light and their benefits in an infrared sauna:
Near Infrared: Healthy cell immunity, wound healing, skin purification and pain relief.
Near infrared wavelengths have a lower micron level and a resulting shorter wavelength which mostly penetrates the epidermis layer of the skin. This makes it a very safe choice for the improvement of cell health, the renewal of skin, tissue growth and wound healing.
Mid Infrared: Pain relief, improved circulation and weight loss.
Mid infrared wavelengths penetrate deeper into the body than near infrared and are therefore good for increasing circulation and blood flow. When used on a consistent basis, mid infrared sauna therapy has been shown to significantly increase blood flow and reduce muscle and joint pain. Healing can occur faster because mid infrared penetrates deeper into soft tissue where inflammation occurs.
Far Infrared: Weight loss, detoxification, better circulation, reduction in blood pressure, and relaxation.
Because far infrared sauna therapy heats the body directly rather than simply warming the air, it raises the core body temperature and produces a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where most toxins reside. Far infrared also aids in blood pressure reduction & weight loss, as you get a great passive aerobic exercise.
Under stressful conditions such as heat shock or hypoxia, increased expression of heat shock proteins protects the cell by stabilizing unfolded or misfolded peptides, giving the cell time to repair or re-synthesize damaged proteins. Their general role as molecular chaperones, protectors of the proteome, is now central to many areas of active research including aging, neurodegeneration, signaling, immunology and cancer.
OPTIMIZE FOCUS & MENTAL PERFORMANCE
Who should get neurofeedback training?
No matter where you are starting from, every brain has a potential best, its own level of optimal flow and function. It doesn’t matter if you are a peak performing athlete or performer, or if you are struggling with relationships or your studies in school, or whatever your situation—given the right information about itself, every brain can reveal its best.
Whether you are looking for personal or spiritual enhancement, that edge to help prepare you for exams or a performance, or whether you just want to “get your ducks in a row”, NeurOptimal® can help you reach that goal.
There are no criteria to determine whether you can use NeurOptimal® or not. It is used on toddlers to our oldest citizens, by the sick and the well, by those not functioning at their best to those who excel at what they do.
What should I expect during a NeurOptimal® session?
During a NeurOptimal® session you will wear ear clips and two small sensors on the sides of your head. These pick up the delicate electrical activity of your brain. You relax and close your eyes and listen to music or watch a movie.
How does neurofeedback training work?
NeurOptimal® processes your brain signals very rapidly and when it detects them moving into an “instability”, the music or movie pauses very briefly. That’s it. That’s all that happens. This is the “feedback.”
Consciously of course, this has no meaning for us—in fact we may not even notice the pauses. But unconsciously, our brain understands the mathematics behind the timing of the pauses, which act a bit like a “rumble strip.” The brain adjusts its activity without any effort from you (you can be completely zoned out if you want), to stay “within” the rumble strip. The brain does this on its own—NeurOptimal® doesn’t tell it to.
Imagine you are walking along a path on a cliff side, in the dark. You’d probably be floundering. But then a flashlight is shone showing the cliff edge. The flashlight doesn’t tell you what to do, but now you can use the extra information you have (the location of the cliff edge) to walk more certainly along your path. The brain learns from the information it is given until over time and without your conscious awareness or effort, it learns to organize itself more efficiently. And this manifests in your life by blocks dropping away and life just seems easier.
NeurOptimal® is simple. But its simplicity belies its power. It’s powerful because it communicates directly with your brain, and there is nothing to interfere with that. There is no outside person having to evaluate or diagnose you, and no outside person deciding what training you need. It’s your brain effectively communicating with itself and making its own changes. Period.
