Claustrophobia and Floating

1072274_556723667718325_713930947_oThree or four years ago, I didn’t know what an isolation tank was and was not really interested in any of the health benefits associated with it. Once I became acquainted with flotation therapy, as many people do, my first words were “There is no way in the world that I am going to get inside one of those things, I am claustrophobic”. Nowadays, I hear my clients repeating these same words and I sympathize with what they say.
Very valid assertion. If you consider yourself Claustrophobic a sensory deprivation tank is not very appealing; however, today people suffering from Claustrophobia can enjoy the same sensory deprivation experiences as people who are not afraid of being “locked up” in a tank.
Today the sensory deprivation chambers have evolved into beautiful, modern and technologically advanced pods where the floater can control the lights and the music. However, the most important feature the new pods have is that the floater can control whether to float with the top open or closed.
Once the claustrophobic person floats for the first time and overcomes his/her fears they become great floaters. I have noticed the following behaviours tend to develop:
1. They become more self-confident and feel proud of themselves
2. They tell everyone how they were able to conquer their claustrophobia and start helping other people do the same
3. They can fully relax and enjoy their float while being liberated of the fear and the anxiety caused by Claustrophobia. In addition and most importantly, they start enjoying all the health benefits associated with the high content of Epsom Salt and pain relief achieved while floating
4. Usually the newly acquired confidence leads them to try new things such as floating with the top half closed or moving into closing the top completely
5. At the personal level, they start taking more risks. I have heard many stories of people feeling so confident that they decide to start that project that they had been thinking about for a while or to change jobs, or move to another city
Definitively Claustrophobics make great floaters!

Jet Lag

Jet lag is experienced by almost any individual after a long flight over different time zones. The body is used to some sleeping patterns and when the biological clock or this sleep patterns are disrupted, there is an overall feeling of tiredness, uncontrollable desire to sleep, fatigue, irritability and difficulty concentrating just to mention a few of the symptoms.

The nap pods provide in 30 minutes the ability to catch up on sleep through an energizing a relaxing nap. This nap will allow the individual to synchronize the  biological clock more easily and adapt to the new time zone in a less traumatic way.

A symphony of music and vibration combine to give you a neuromuscular massage. The neuromuscular massage travels through the nervous system allowing mind and body to relax and fight insomnia, fatigue and jet lag.

“The comforting vibration fills your body, leaving you in a state of peaceful tranquility” Is how the Neurospa official website describes the sensation experienced. It’s a revitalizing experience.


Today nap pods / neurospa stations are being used in many airports to help passengers and airline personnel overcome the symptoms of jetlag.
