EX­PE­RI­ENCE the deep re­lax­ation, weight­less­ness and calm of floata­tion ther­apy with Becalmed Float.

De­vel­oped by neu­ro­phys­i­ol­o­gist and psy­cho­an­a­lyst Dr John Lilly, ‘float­ing’ is a form of re­stricted en­vi­ron­men­tal stim­u­la­tion ther­apy (REST) or sen­sory de­pri­va­tion.

In a cus­tom floata­tion tank filled with Ep­som salt so­lu­tion heated to match skin tem­per­a­ture, you will ex­pe­ri­ence a de­lib­er­ate re­moval of stim­uli from the senses which re­sets the brain through the process of achiev­ing theta brain pat­terns.

REST has been found to have sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits in as­sist­ing with re­duc­ing stress and anx­i­ety, eas­ing mus­cle and joint pain and aiding in the man­age­ment of skin dis­or­ders like pso­ri­a­sis.

It is com­pletely nat­u­ral to feel some ap­pre­hen­sion be­fore us­ing the tank for the first time, how­ever at Becalmed Float you are to­tally in con­trol of cre­at­ing your own tank ex­pe­ri­ence.
