Much Needed REST: The world of sensory deprivation tanks - Psychology Tomorrow MagazinePsychology Tomorrow Magazine

Each day, around fifty people walk through the shop’s front door and into a brightly colored lobby full of plants and couches. They check in with a desk attendant (that’s me), walk into a short hallway, enter private rooms, shed their clothes, shower, then climb into enclosed tanks full of luke-warm, epsom salt saturated water and float on their backs in total darkness and silence for at least 90 minutes. The clinical term for this unusual practice is R.E.S.T., Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy, which is also known as “Floatation Therapy,” “Isolation Therapy,” and “Sensory Deprivation Therapy.”

With six tanks, Float On is the largest float tank center in the United States. Cocoon Floatation Floatation Tank Studio Wollongong. The results of REST (Restricted environmental stimulation technique, a fancy word for floating) are fairly phenomenal.

Brett Dennis, a promising young cyclist, cycled off a cliff in the US Tour DuPont road race in 1994, falling 4 metres and smashing his femur through his hip socket. Doctors gave him little chance of walking properly again. Back home in Australia two weeks later, with a steel pin through his shattered pelvis, Dennis was understandably depressed and near to giving up his sporting ambitions. However, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) is justifiably famous for its advanced training techniques and facilities.

At the AIS, Dennis was put onto a program of intensive physiotherapy. Cocoon Floatation Floatation Tank Studio Wollongong. The Positive Thinking Cheat Sheet: 42 Simple Habits for Happiness.

Water way to go for Wayne - mirror Administrator

Rooney has enjoyed some of the best form of his career of late, scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances for Manchester United this term. Previously the 22-year-old was suffering from a string of injuries and had been struggling to find his form for club and country. But Roo has been setting the Premier League alight recently and friends reckon the flotation tank is the key. The £4,000 egg-shaped water pod was installed in Rooney's £1million mansion in Prestbury, Cheshire, at the request of his fiancee Coleen McLoughlin. And now the striker is reaping the rewards.

Aug. 15, 1988 2:10 AM ET NEW YORK (AP) _ John Lennon kicked a heroin habit with the help of a sensory-deprivation tank and felt as healthy as he'd ever felt in the weeks before his murder, according to a new biography.

Bio: Lennon Kicked Heroin Habit By 'Floating'

Lennon kicked the debilitating habit in 1979 with self-discipline and a cedarwood box filled with a warm saline solution in which he would float for up to half an hour in the dark, Albert Goldman writes in ''The Lives Of John Lennon.'' The sensation reminded him of getting high, according to the excerpts of the book published in this week's People magazine. In November 1980, following the release of his and Yoko Ono's album, ''Double Fantasy,'' he called producer Jack Douglas. ''John was totally satisfied with himself mentally and physically,'' Douglas said. The book says Yoko experienced hallucinations and threatened suicide, but kicked her heroin habit with the help of a physician.
