Benefits Of Isolation Tank Meditation Therapy

A number of therapeutic processes exists to help humans achieve better states of health. Meditation tops this list.

Achieving meditative state is not exactly at the snap of a finger, a number of factors need to be put in place to help achieve this. One of the most effective is an isolation tank.

Used since the 1950s, floatation tanks or sensory deprivation tanks as they are also called is a soundproof tank, allowing in no light filled with salt water at skin temperature with high magnesium sulphate (epsum salt) content. The aim of the tank is to isolate its occupant from different forms of sensory signals

Here are the top reasons why isolation tank meditation is very beneficial.

Boosts Immune Function

It generally improves preventive health states by helping the body produce and circulate the necessary endorphins and nutrients. Athletes use it to reduce the frequency and severity of injuries.

Reduces Blood Pressure, Heart Rate etc.

Oxygen consumption, pulse, heart rate and blood pressure – these are factors that go hand-in-hand. The end result of their rising levels is often fatal. To avoid this, sensory isolation in the tank reduces all of it to the barest minimum.

Pain Relief

This type of meditation has a lot of physical benefits on the body, one of which is the relief of pains. By going under sensory deprivation, the patient feels next to nothing while under – pains included, this helps the mind to gradually phase out the pain.

Hones Senses

Perhaps the coolest of its benefits, isolation tank therapy helps to achieve a higher state of mental alertness and acuteness of the senses. One becomes more ‘aware’ and awake than normal. This facilitates learning capabilities, it also increases one’s creativity and problem-solving ability. In addition, formation of ideas come easy in isolation when there is as little distraction as possible and this is as little as it gets.

Deepens Meditation

Those seeking a deeper form of meditation than the usual can take advantage of sensory deprivation therapy. By being isolated away, there will be no distraction whatsoever. Even the temperature of the water is the same as that of the skin, so the person feels nothing and can go as deep as necessary into his or her meditation.

Helps to Achieve Personal Freedom

People seeking to get rid of addictions, phobias and bad habits will benefit immensely from isolation tank therapy. This sort of meditation tells the brain that it is possible to go on without those phobias and addiction – sort of like a reset button for aspects of the mind.

Alleviation of Mental and Physical Stress.

Spending time away from sensory contact of any kind allows the brain and body to rejuvenate itself more rapidly. It takes one away from typical stressors and allows the person to spend time alone in a safe, relaxed state.

Mood Regulation

Several research works have shown that floatation therapy can help enhance a person’s mood. People are generally happier and livelier after a session of floatation therapy than they were before.
