What is a Sensory Deprivation Tank?

Recently, a friend of mine sent me a link to buy a voucher to experience a sensory deprivation tank, otherwise known as a flotation tank therapy. The idea of using a float tank intrigued me. I had heard about float tanks, but didn’t really know much about them or their purpose. What is a Sensory Deprivation Tank?

A Sensory Deprivation Tank is a capsule/pod that has been designed restricts both light and sound to help your brain to completely disconnect from any  and all distractions.

You effortlessly  begin to re-connect with your body’s natural deep relaxation response. This allows the neurons in your brain stems to communicate, which improves brainwave frequency and it turns out that using sensory deprivation tanks provides a unique way of healing.

Float tanks were first used in 1954 by John C. Lilly to study the sensory deprivation effects on the body. John C. Lilly was psychoanalysis at the National Institute of Mental Health.

In 2013, flotation tanks became very popular in Europe, followed by the United States. Float tanks are not common in Melbourne, Victoria, where I live. At the time of writing this article, I found only two companies that have float tanks.

When lying in a float tank, your body is completely supported and held by a half a tonne of Epsom salts (600 kg of magnesium sulphate) which creates buoyancy and you float effortlessly. The Epsom salts contain essential minerals which help you relax and relieve you of any tension.

Fresh oxygen and magnesium (which are abundance in Epsom salt) stimulate your body responses and assist with healing. The water temperature is lukewarm or body temperature and helps with the feeling of weightless. I imagine this is what it must be like to float in the Dead Sea, in Israel.

Does A Sensory Deprivation Tank Work?

Natural Healing

Sensory deprivation tanks provide a non-invasive, drug free, alternative medicine which provides a unique way of healing. I encourage you to give it a go. Flotation tank therapy is known as an alternative medicine as it has numerous health benefits. It’s used primarily for treatment of muscle tension, hypertension, migraines, rheumatoid arthritis and other disorders accompanied by chronic pain.

It assists in body detoxification as magnesium draws toxins to the skin. It also helps reduce anxiety and alleviate depression by increasing our pleasure hormones in the brain. Flotation Tank Therapy is really good for stress reduction and provides a unique way of healing.

Brainwaves

Our brains are fascinating. There are five main electrical currents creating vibrational frequencies that effectively look after our whole body. The difference vibrations in our brains are known as brainwaves. The Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma brainwave have a different function.

  • Delta (0.5 – 3 Hz) brainwaves are for deep sleep, and we are completely unconscious. This is when we experience dreamless sleep and our body is healing.
  • Theta (3 – 8 Hz) brainwaves are deep relaxation, light sleep and dreaming which enhance hypnosis, meditation, stimulate visualisation and mental imagery. Theta brainwaves have been linked to unconscious problem solving.
  • Alpha (8 – 12 Hz) brainwaves are the calm, relaxation vibrational frequencies and are essential for creativity, learning, and relaxation. High Alpha brainwave frequencies are used by high performing athletes and entrepreneurs
  • Beta (12 – 38 Hz) brainwaves function mostly during the day and are essential for emotional and mental health. Beta brainwaves are responsible for effective problem solving, attentiveness, focus and concentration.

• Gamma (38 – 42 Hz) brainwaves vibrant at a high frequency which has been linked to learning, formation of ideas, language processing and creativity.

Disconnect and Refresh with Meditation and Hypnosis

Disconnect And Refresh With Meditation And Hypnosis

Have you ever noticed that when you’re ‘taking a break’, sometimes you’re are not really talking a break? Stress levels and anxiety are on the rise, and mental illnesses such as depression are escalating.

Learning and Creativity

Creativity thrives when there is uninterrupted solitude. In the pod, the experience is so peaceful which allows your mind to activate and embrace creative visualisation. It allows your mind to think and explore opportunities that you might not necessarily have made time for before. Sensory deprivation tanks have been referred to as “modern learning environment” because they encourage the mind to access resources that are stored in the unconscious mind. This engages metal clarity which evolves into personal motivation and productivity.

The flotation tank helps our minds to engage the Theta and Alpha brainwaves to provide deep relaxation. They are used for mediation and creative visualisation techniques. By disconnecting from environmental stimulation we can allow our minds to rest and rejuvenate. It enhances emotional intelligence and mindfulness.

My Experience

Okay, so I have been meditating for a while now and sometimes find it hard to concentrate due to the environmental stimulation. I experienced the most amazing feeling from resting in the silence and stillness inside my deprivation tank. This is a completely different to my previous meditation experiences. 

It’s a strange sensation to be completely immersed and floating effortlessly. It was challenging to just allow myself to complete surrender. I found that my shoulders were hunched and after a while began to cramp a bit so I would have to focus on trusting the environment. As I floated in the tank I noticed that my heart rate slowed and my breathing was shallow. I remember focusing on my thoughts and encouraged positive loving thoughts into my consciousness. This time in the tank allowed me to experience an in-depth reflection in my life. I drifted off into a relaxed, lucid doze.

The time passed slowly and quickly, it was quite surreal. I had no sense of time and was surprised to find out that I had been in the tank for 2 hours. Afterwards, I felt a sense of calm and rejuvenation. I felt like my anxiety and worries had melted away. I felt vibrant and refreshed.

Using bath bombs at home is a nice, cheap, relaxing alternative, but nothing compares to actually using a float tank. Without experiencing it for yourself, you’ll never truly answer the question “What is a Sensory Deprivation Tank?” for yourself. Every experience is a little different. I encourage you to book a float tank session. And at the very worst you’ll give yourself a break from the chaos we call life, rest and rejuvenate.

Have you ever noticed that when you’re ‘taking a break’, sometimes you’re are not really taking a break? Stress levels and anxiety are on the rise, and mental illnesses such as depression are escalating.

With all the demands and expectations of life, it is becoming more important for us to take some much needed time out to recharge our batteries. One solution is to disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis.

A personal favourite Hypnotherapist who is out ‘go to guy’ is Steve G. Jones. With a more than impressive resume and a client base that looks like a roll call for the celebrity A-list, Steve has a great reputation in the hypnotherapy field and we, and our friends, have had some amazing results with his audios.

Detox and Cure - How Do You Meditate

How Do You Meditate?

For a long time I found it difficult to meditate. I found that I would get distracted really easily and I had no idea what I was doing. I knew that many celebrities and wealthy entrepreneurs use meditation on a regular basis, but I often found myself wondering why?

How can we recharge our batteries with such chaotic lives?

To combat the chaos in life, I prioritise my downtime and regularly disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis. I have been using meditation and hypnosis for over two years now.

In the past I had struggled with adrenal fatigue, migraines, anxiety and depression, and the thought of having to take medication did not interest me. I searched high and low for natural alternatives, and one day somebody suggested that I should try a combination meditation and hypnosis.

For many years, my mother had struggled with fatigue, which seemed to mainly be caused from poor sleep. She tended to have very shallow sleep patterns. Sometimes she would wake up in the middle of the night and stare at the ceiling for hours, usually falling asleep just before she needed to get up to start her day.

After personally experimenting with meditation and hypnosis for a while and having some great results, I promptly suggested that she gave guided hypnosis a try too. Which she did and said that she felt much more rested and she now sleeps well; usually for the whole night.

We are well aware that it is common for young families and older women to suffer from sleeplessness. However, it is becoming more and more common for many people who use technology frequently, have high stress occupations, health or financial concerns to also suffer from sleeplessness. Unfortunately, these situations are experienced by a very large number of the global population.

Studies have shown that the continuous illumination from lights and the use of blue light emitting screens, especially in the late evening, can impact your circadian rhythms, which affects your sleep patterns. It is suggested that we disconnect from our technology and turn the lights to dim, if possible, at least 30 minutes to an hour before retiring to bed.

We should avoid having devices such as mobile phones, tablets, computers and televisions in our bedrooms because the blue light emitted from these screens throw our body clock out of whack. The blue light from these screens is a similar frequency to sunlight, and it sends a messages which your brain interprets as ‘it is still daytime’.

Turn off and reboot yourself

When you disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis you essentially give your body and mind permission to recover. We turn off and reboot our computers and smart devices regularly to allow them to operate more effectively, but how often do we turn off and reboot ourselves?

Recently I read a study which highlighted that children under 5 years old are spending around 14 hours per week (an average of 2 hours per day) in front of the television and on mobile devices, and teens are spending up to 44 hours per week on mobile devices. Technology is causing many harmful side effects including diminishing social skills and emotional management in youth.

Technology is a wonderful tool, but we need to put some limitations in place. Other studies suggest that our habits with technology are contributing to weight gain through sedentary behaviours, diabetes, some cancers and heart disease.

There are over 1,400 studies that communicate the benefits of when we disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis. Neurologists have studied the brain patterns of people who disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis on a regular basis and found a number of health benefits including:

  • Improvements in mood, emotions, self image and mindset
  • Improvements in the immune system performance
  • Reduction of high blood pressure
  • Reduction of the signs of ageing
  • Reduction of aches and pains
  • Improvements in strategic thinking and creativity
  • Improvements in neuroplasticity
  • Improvements in circadian rhythms
  • Reduction in anxiety and fears

These are just some of the reasons why we believe that you should disconnect and refresh with meditation and hypnosis.

What are the benefits of meditation?

Russell Brand, Tony Robins, Oprah, Steve Jobs and many successful people have openly spoken about the benefits of meditating.

Meditation helps to:

  • naturally heal our bodies both mentally and physically.
  • keep us young and it is really helpful for brain health.
  • reduce blood pressure and improves your heart health.
  • reduce pain, headaches, stress and anxiety by allowing your mind and body to reboot.

We wash our bodies everyday and we reboot our computers on a regular basis but how often do you reboot your mind?

Why should I meditate?

It took a bit of trial and error before I found something that works for me. I like to start my day with meditation because I feel fresh and feel that is gives me clarity and helps me focus.

Using meditation is really quite simple. Start by allocating some time each day, between 5 and 30 minutes. You may need to schedule it into your calendar or wake up 15 – 30 minutes earlier every morning.

I know this sounds challenging, but it’s a really nice way to start your day. You’re not diving out of bed in a rush, you’re just gently easing your way into the day and you’ll be amazed how much energy you have.

Tips on improving your meditation

I recommend wearing comfortable clothes, sit or lie down in a comfortable position. You could play some calming music, light a candle and burn incense or aromatherapy oils to help engage your senses.

Sometimes, I like to use my Tibetan singing bowl to heighten the vibrational energy in the room. The noise vibrations are rather pleasant and calming. The vibrations produced by the singing bowl improves the energy in the room and resonates with the vibration in your body. Try adding a little water to the bowl, it sound like dolphins singing.

Start by focusing on your breathing and observe your thoughts. When your mind starts racing, concentrate on your breathing and bring your focus back to your breath. When you’re ready, you can start adding some structure into your meditation practice. I like to use this time to focus on six key areas.

  1. Compassion
  2. Gratitude
  3. Forgiveness
  4. Visualisation
  5. My perfect day
  6. Blessing

I hope that this article has given you a clearer understanding about the importance of meditation. Do you meditate and if so, how do you meditate? Do you have any tips and tricks that could help other’s in their experience while meditating?

How to cure gastric pain

If you’ve ever experienced bloating, you would inevitably experience the discomfort of gastric pain that comes with it. This for many is quickly followed by a series of questions around how to cure gastric pain including:

  • Why is my stomach so bloated?
  • What helps cure bloating?

The above questions can’t really be addressed  without first identifying what bloating is and what causes bloating in the stomach.

Bloating is when the abdomen is full of gas. Symptoms often include loss of appetite, increased flatulence and burping, sharp pain in the abdomen and sometimes pain when breathing; the abdomen tends to feel uncomfortable and spongy, hence the bloat. Often bloating is caused by trapped wind or gas built up inside the stomach and intestines.

Why You Can't Lose Weight

Why You Can’t Lose Weight

The single reason why you can’t lose weight is that hormones, not calories, determine weight loss and fitness. Leptin is the most powerful hormone in the human body due to its role in fat metabolism.

What causes trapped wind?

Trapped wind is initially caused by a build up of gas in the gut. When food is consumed the stomach and intestines release acids and bile to assist with the breakdown of the food which also creates gasses. Usually the gas will pass through the large intestine with the excess waste and leave the system when you go to the toilet.

What causes bloating in the stomach?

Bloating could be caused by any number of things from swallowing air, to drinking carbonated or caffeinated liquids, and eating foods that are difficult to digest.

What makes you bloated?

Foods that cause bloating due to the build up of gas include lettuce, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, beans and cabbage.

Vitamins, supplements and medicines can also cause bloating. If you feel bloated after consuming fiber supplements, this is quite normal. However, if your discomfort or the symptoms persist, it is best to stop taking the supplements and seek medical advice from your practitioner. If you feel bloated when taking prescription medication, also seek medical advice. You may be prescribed something else in the place of the medication that is causing the bloating.

Constipation or bowel obstruction may be another reason for bloating and gastric pain. If symptoms persist seek medical advice from your practitioner and ask for tests to be done in order to find out why you are experiencing these symptoms.

If you are experiencing bloating and excess gas, you’re probably wondering how to relieve the gas quickly to help alleviate some of the gastric pain and discomfort. Belching, farting and if possible, relieve your bowels are probably the quickest and easiest ways to relive pressure through the release trapped gas. However, belching and farting, especially in public can be rather embarrassing, and considered to be impolite.

If you are open to exploring some holistic healing options, consider colon hydrotherapy to clean your bowel. You may have a build up of bacteria which could cause excess gas build up. Colon hydrotherapy helps to alleviate and prevent many ailments and health concerns.

Ideally, you will need to identify what is causing the bloating in the first place. You may have allergies or an intolerance to specific foods such as those containing gluten or lactose. People who suffer food intolerance are more likely to suffer from bloating. Consider changing your diet by eliminating gluten, dairy and lactose products and then slowly reintroducing foods back into your diet.

How to cure gastric pain

The simplest way how to cure gastric pain is through preventative strategies. In other words, consider changing your diet, for example:

  • Eat smaller amounts of food four to six times per day. This will allow the digestive system to process the food more efficiently.
  • Have a regular eating regime and avoid skipping meals.
  • Reduce the amount of processed food which can irritate your bowel.
  • Moderate your alcohol consumption as this reduces stress on the liver and allows your system to process nutrients more efficiently.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking dehydrates the body which places stress on your organs.
  • Look for ways to manage your stress. This may include yoga, meditation, taking regular breaks, holidays, exercise and healthy eating.

Detox & Cure - What Is Colon Hydrotherapy

What Is Colon Hydrotherapy?

Recently I was asked ‘What is colon hydrotherapy?’ by a friend of mine and I decided to write a post about the topic and share it with you. Colon hydrotherapy has been around for thousands of years and is relied upon widely for its many health benefits as a preventative therapy.

One of the best natural ways to cure gastric pain and bloating is to consume ginger. Ginger helps improve and speed up the digestive processes, which will help the food move into the bowels quicker and relieve gastric pain and bloating.

If you are experiencing gastric pain and bloating, cut up 1 fresh ginger root and soak in warm water and drink as a warm tea. Alternatively, try drinking Chamomile or Peppermint tea. This has been an effective method we have applied in the search to the answer for the question ‘How to cure gastric pain?’
