Item Description

Bodymind Float Center located at 622-1 Park Avenue offers a float certificate. What is Floatation Therapy? Inside the float tank, eight hundred pounds of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt is dissolved in ten inches of water warmed to skin temperature. This extremely dense solution, like the Dead Sea, enables people of all body types to float effortlessly and, to a large extent, escape the pull of gravity. The float tank is light-proof and sound-proof, greatly reducing sensory stimulation. This unique environment frees the brain from the bulk of its processing duties and prompts the production of theta waves. The nearly universal response to floating is one of profound relaxation and a sense of well-being, even joy. Why Float? Floatation Therapy has so many applications. Floating offers relief for back and neck aches, fibromyalgia symptoms, migraines, and muscle and joint soreness. It is useful for managing addictions to food, alcohol and drugs. Sufferers of sleep disorders and PTSD have been helped by floating. Because floating prompts the brain to produce theta waves, many use the float tank as a means of supporting their meditation or prayer practice. It is possible to listen to sound recordings while floating. Some select inspirational material, while others take advantage of the mind's ability to absorb quickly when in the ''theta wave state'' and listen to material to be learned for school or business. Many people find their creativity is enhanced during and after floating. Visit their web site at www.bodymindfloatcenter.com for more information. 

Certificate expires on 12/31/15.
