Focus & Learning

Accessing theta brainwaves opens an impressionable mind. This leads to rapid learning and absorption of material. Removing the mind and body from an over-stimulated world allows restorative relaxation and results in improved focus.

IMPROVED SLEEP

The lack of sensory stimuli assists with the regulation of sleep hormones. It also causes you to transition alert and active alpha brainwaves to deep rest, daydreaming Theta wave state.

Creativity

The Journal of Music and Medicine ran a study which discovered that after regular float sessions, jazz musicians saw an improvement in technical abilities for improvisation.

Weight

The sympathetic nervous system, (fight/flight responses) which secretes fat-storing chemicals is put to rest. The parasympathetic nervous system begins to stimulate digestion, activate the metabolism, and engages relaxation.
