What effects does floating have on the body?
During a float, you produce slower brain-waves patterns; know as theta waves, (normally experienced only during deep meditation or just before falling asleep). In this state both hemispheres work as one creating what is known as whole brain thinking. This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy, induced by the release of endorphins, the body’s natural opiates. Because of these effects, floating is used effectively in the treatment of depression and addictions, including smoking and alcohol. It is also used in schools and universities as tools for Super Learning.
