Water Temple Floatation & Holistic Health UPDATE

Victoria Government UPDATE 6th SEPT

Stage 4 restrictions have been extended ☹

As of the 13th Sept, the curfew will be extended to 9 pm 😊

Your ability to exercise has increased to 2 hours per day, so take advantage of the spring air! And if you haven’t created an exercise routine start today.

If your living alone, you can “partner up” to visit each other and the 5 km rule does not apply.

What this means for you our float community is that you are NOT allow to float just yet ☹, we are all very disappointed by this. Hopefully when the restrictions do ease, we will be on the first phase list and able to open as we know the mental and physical health benefits that floatation therapy provides.

Dr. Mychelle’s practice remains open as she is deemed an essential service provider, but not for routine care. Care can only be provided if the absence of, or delay of this care would result in a significant change/ deterioration in the client/patient’s functional independence.

So, you can come in for treatment, and although not necessary we still recommend getting a referral from your GP.

Telehealth services continue to be available by appointment for patients needing follow up advice and pre-treatment.

We are still offering a FREE 30-minute telehealth consultation with Dr Mychelle to talk about how Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and floatation therapy can help reduce stress in your body. You can book your appointment time by calling us on 0403 738 266. Please note this will be available from Wednesday to Friday from 10am to 5pm.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long history and many research papers showing the benefits for stress, pain and overall well-being. Floatation therapy has a growing body of evidence and research showing the positive changes in cortisol levels, regulating the heart, improving sleep and helping with mental health issues such such as anxiety, depression, PTSD and stress.

Gratitude goes a long way. By staying safe and respecting the Government restrictions, we will all get through this.

Benefits of Floatation Therapy

The ultra-deep relaxation of floating resets your body’s hormonal and metabolic balance while strengthening resistance to, and accelerating recovery from the effects of stress, illness, injury or strenuous exercise.

While the benefits of floatation therapy are as diverse as the people who love it, some of the most common include:

Physical

For optimum health your body requires regular rest from the rigors of daily life. Floatation therapy provides the perfect environment where your body is free from the constrains of gravity allowing for an amazing change to occur.  Epsom salts contain a high concentration of magnesium and has been used for centuries to soothe aches and pains, aid in muscle strain and injury recovery. There is no pressure on your joints or spine resulting in deep relaxation thus allowing for the body’s own natural healing to occur. This also helps you to become more connected to the areas of pain, often due to stress (both physical and mental), and in turn this greater awareness helps in the prevention of future injury. The combined effect of floating in the concentration of magnesium also helps with drawing toxins from the cells of the body.

Intellectual

Intellectual Sensory Deprivation allows your brain to reset and achieve a truly focused level of concentration. Floatation Therapy allows for the balance and improved communication between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. 20% of the cortex of the brain is used to process sensory input, mainly visual and auditory, having both of these resting allows for a greater capacity to focus on what it is that you want, without distraction. Ever had writers block, want to reduce your anxiety in performing in public or design a new item? Well, amazing things happen when you allow “time out” from external sensory input. In a float tank you can reach such a state, so that creativity becomes heightened, and your brain can process and analyse information more constructively. You will emerge from our float session with a clearer mindset and more focused thoughts.

Spiritual

Wanting to develop a more connected heart focused lifestyle, or feel a calm and peaceful state of mind more often?
The Theta brainwave state, is occasioned with REM sleep where the brain wave cycles slow down, allowing you to easily tap into your subconscious mind. This often takes years of meditation to master. They have now discovered that when floating in a sensory deprivation or sensory enhancement environment, one can effortlessly reach deep mental and physical relaxation. Cortisol (stress hormone) levels drop, as all stress is removed from both your physical and mental processes. Your brain stays alert and releases a vast amount of endorphins (happy hormones). Floatation Therapy has been proven to help individuals, experience extended periods of Theta brainwave activity, quickly and easily.

Our Floatation Pods

Inside the float pod is 600kg of premium magnesium salts and 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).

The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that are not.

This buoyancy created by the dense Epsom-salt solution effectively removes the effects of gravity on the body and brings the individual close to an experience of total weightlessness.

With ear plugs in and, if you wish the pods interior lights off the quietness and the darkness allow the mind to drift into the deepest state of relaxation.

Over 20% of the brains energy is used every second to deal with the strains that gravity places on one’s body, floating allows for that energy to be redirected to other area of the body that need rebalancing and healing, so the weightlessness experienced when floating is very much a whole being self-healing therapy. The negative ions in the salty water improve the electrical impulses in the heart and brain and therefore effect all other systems, reducing cortisol levels, balancing the hormones, and remove stress from all areas of the body.
