Float tanks have come a long way since John C. Lilly’s sensory deprivation experiments of the 1950s and 60s. Today, in addition to enhancing meditation and consiousness expansion, float pods are used in treatments for recovery, relaxation, pain relief, PTSD, anxiety, and depression. See this page about how Navy Seals are using float pods to treat concussions.
A float session is usually 60 minutes long, during which a patient will float in heavily salted water in an enclosed pod that looks like it could escape any battle class starship in a pinch. While inside, the patient has access to an intercom system, can turn on a small light when needed – in an array of colors, and listen to a choice of music, recorded therapy program, or just be in silence.
The new Float Pod is one of only a few here in Connecticut. We expect this to become very popular, and as common as getting a message. If you want to be one of the first to experience this, sign up for our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, then watch for the announcement of the new Wellness Center opening.
