Flotation Therapy: 5 Ways to Achieve Your Goals
Many clients who come to float have aspirations of losing weight, curing their depression, shifting their perspective about someone or something, achieving relaxation, accelerating the healing of an injury, for self growth, self improvement, chronic illness, the list goes on and on…
We all float for our own reasons, but we don’t all reach our intended goals. If you choose float therapy to meet your health and wellness goals, the most important question to ask is: What is Your Intention?
Float therapy or Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) is a practice like meditation, yoga, exercise, dance, writing, or even talk therapy… when you find the time the rest of your life just works. You are calmer and better able to handle stress. You respond rather than react. Floating regularly is a practice.
Here are 5 things we recommend to help you reach your goals with flotation therapy:
1. Analyze your schedule. Overwhelm can be the quickest route to failure. So evaluate when the best time is, every week, that you can set aside to float. We are habitual creatures, so make it a part of your routine, and then STICK TO IT for a set time period (two months). Setting small achievable goals will help to ensure you succeed.
2. Set your intention before you float. When you enter the tank think about what you want to get out of the experience. Feel the result in your body. Picture yourself reaching that goal. Visualization and manifestation are keys to success as they constantly align the rest of your actions throughout the week to meet that goal.
3. Tell a friend. Let someone else know what you are trying to achieve. Let them know your plan to float weekly or monthly and ask them to help keep you on track. Of course, this needs to be the right kind of friend, the one that allows for you to hold the key to your own success.
4. After you float, keep a notepad and jot down what you are noticing in yourself. Or use our float journal to record your thoughts and share your inspiration with others. Sometimes we think we haven’t met our goals when, in all actuality, we haven’t even defined them. Once you define them, you start to notice how many positive effects are taking place.
5. Let go of your expectations. As human beings, we are programmed to want to control the process and the outcome of just about everything. The unknown is harder to trust for some. Flotation therapy requires that you let go of your expectations, set your intention, and uncover your practice. You have the power to heal yourself. Use flotation therapy to help you reach your goals.
