So WHAT IS FLOATING or FLOATATION THERAPY?
At the Veteran Wellness Center - we use Floatation therapy to benefit our Veterans, First Responders, their families and friends. Floatation therapy is based on a scientific approach to deep relaxation called Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique or more appropriately, R.E.S.T. The floatation tanks belong to FloatNorfolk @The Renova Center - our sister company and provide a profound sense of rest and relaxation. Floatation helps eliminate stress and recreate new, positive electrical pathways throughout your body. After a float, you can expect decreased pain, reduced stress, increased concentration, enhanced memory, and better sleep. Floating resets the mind and body in a subtle way so we begin to function better without even realizing the changes, at first. We just begin to notice that "things" don't bother us as much and we cope better. While driving, we wonder why everyone is in such a hurry, rather than before floating, we were wondering why everyone was driving so slowly. It seems the world has changed but it's really just we have changed and so we see the world and its problems differently. We see that proverbial glass as half full instead of half empty.
"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." ~Aristotle
