We live in such a tuned in world, it’s a wonder our brains can tolerate it all. The downside is that our brains do have limits and when saturated in noise, the physical effects can cause elevated levels of stress hormones.
Silence is comforting. It opens us up to inspiration, and nurtures the mind, body and soul. Science is now showing that silence may be just what we need to regenerate our exhausted brains and bodies.
According to the Attention Restoration Theory, when you are in an environment with lower levels of sensory input, the brain can ‘recover’ some of its cognitive abilities. Research has shown the constant attention demands of modern life is placing a lot of stress on our prefrontal cortex–the part of the brain responsible for making decisions, solving problems and more. When we spend time alone in silence, our brains are able to relax and release this constant focus.
The healing benefits of nature and stillness are well documented, but now we can add to this quest for health and wellbeing, the nourishment of our brains. The simple yet ancient experience of silence could be just the healing balm we need to quell our crazy modern lifestyle.
At True Rest, while you are floating in the tank, your senses are released from all distractions, your body is weightless enabling you to reach deep levels of relaxation/meditation that would normally take years of practice to achieve. The tank creates an environment where you can achieve pure sensory relaxation and recovery.
Still not intrigued? Read this testimonial from one of our clients from a sister True REST Float Spa: “Ten years of chronic, constant pain and in one hour I finally got relief! Each time I’ve come back my pain levels are lower than the time previous and the relief lasts longer after each float. Every time I come out of the REST Pod my pain levels return to zero or near zero! WOW! Thank you True REST.”
