Floata­tion ther­apy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Variety -

In this ther­apy, the body is freed from all sen­sa­tions. You are cut off from the ef­fects of grav­ity, as the den­sity of wa­ter is in­creased (by adding salts), and you feel weight­less. You are also de­prived of sens­ing the wa­ter’s tem­per­a­ture as it is ad­justed to be the same as that of your body tem­per­a­ture. Floata­tion ther­apy is usu­ally car­ried out in a ‘float pod’, which also cuts off sound and light. As a re­sult, about 90% of a per­son’s nor­mal neu­ro­mus­cu­lar ac­tiv­ity is re­stricted. This means that your en­ergy is de­vi­ated to­wards other re­quire­ments of the body, like heal­ing from in­jury, or re­cov­ery from stress and trauma. This process ex­pe­dites re­cu­per­a­tion.
