Why You Should Consider Floating In A Sensory Deprivation Tank In Ringwood

No doubt, the habitual activity of everyday life is always full of energy and ecstasy but have you ever thought of getting out of your comfort zone and break away from routine just for once?

Imagine yourself floating in a shallow pool containing half a ton of Epsom salt and filled with water while being enclosed in a dark room.

Benefits of floating in a sensory deprivation tank
The sensory deprivation tank in Ringwood is an egg-shaped tank offers an irresistible mind-body experience. Interestingly, it isn’t all about fun as it also presents a host of benefits for the body including

    Full recovery from jet lag Idea generation and problem-solving Enhanced creativity Total relaxation of body, mind and nervous system Lower blood pressure Increase circulation Ease muscle, joint, and lower back pain

While some may describe the sensory deprivation tank in Ringwood as a tiny pitch-black room in which anyone can merely float in its tub of salt water, a good number of practitioners will happily declare this as a transformative psychological journey that relates mind-blowing, life changing experiences.

If you are yet to make up your mind about floating in the dark and experiencing real transformation, here is why you need to consider floating in a sensory deprivation tank in Ringwood.

It presents a usual and unusual experience
There is hardly anyone that can easily remember what it felt like to be in the womb. But try to imagine what it feels like to be rocking so silently in the salty, warm waters of an isolation take. Alternatively, you can choose to spice things up a little especially if you are feeling a little bored by playing some cool music. It offers an incredibly soothing experience that can rarely be experienced elsewhere. If you are the claustrophobic type, there is no need to be afraid. You have an option to partially leave the lid open while you float solo.

Experience a spiritual and mental detox
Everyone surely needs a break from screens. But how do you spend those free moments – sleeping maybe? Once you dip yourself into the soothing water of a sensory deprivation tank, you soon begin to find yourself slipping deeper and deeper into relaxation with a complete disconnect from the world of social media. What an implausible moment – one would say. But it’s actually real. This is when you become unconscious of time while undergoing series of spiritual and mental transformations. You will need a cup of hot tea and cozy couches to rest on so as to be able to effectively bring yourself back to reality, as you will be so lost in your own new world.

Experience pain relief everywhere
While a typical floating session may last for 60 – 90 minutes, only a few minutes of relaxation is enough to make you feel pain relief in areas you often experience the most tension such as your lower back, legs, and shoulders. Interestingly, many other aspects of your body are also going to experience relative tightness too.
