Getting Good Sleep Isn’t Easy
Insomnia, and other sleep disorders, are becoming increasingly difficult challenges that more and more people have to contend with. Sleep is an essential part of our daily lives. Since humanity began living in caves, to our highly technological and urbanized world, getting a significant amount of time at night for rest has been a cornerstone of human existence.
We need sleep to recharge our bodies and our minds. Like most animals, we are programmed to sleep at night. However, what we have to realize is that proper sleep, good sleep, requires comfort and time that is difficult to provide.
What do I mean? First of all, you need a comfy bed! This usually isn’t a problem but some folks don’t have the most comfortable places to sleep in.
Secondly, good sleep requires time. Unfortunately, life is constantly demanding more and more of our time. Kids, work, our relationships, chores, errands, our projects, our hobbies, having time to relax, time to party, time to exercise, time to meditate or float, our devices all dig in to the those finite 24 hours in the day. For example, Statistics Canada found that a third of Canadians are not getting enough sleep.
Whatever the case may be, time is a precious resource that we have constant demands on. We all know that we should try to get good sleep, but sometimes we want to work a little bit more, have a bit more time with our significant other or our families, and of course, we are often tempted to stay up by our devices and our screens.

Furthermore, no matter how hard we try, and no matter how much we would wish it otherwise, there are only 24 hours in a day. With so much going on in our lives, how can we ‘make time’ for sleep, when we literally can’t ‘make’ any more time?
Any of you that have stayed up late into the night working on a difficult deadline know that if you go into a negative balance with your sleep, it will only be a matter of a few hours or days until your body punishes you for this. Staying up now and then isn’t terrible, but over time, the missed hours begin to add up.
Ok so we need more sleep, we can’t make more time for sleep, and most likely if we aren’t getting enough sleep, we are getting into habits that are unsustainable or are going to have unforeseen consequences. What can we do?
Well, as was mentioned in the beginning of this article, acquiring good sleep nowadays is a challenge.
Luckily, with our Nap Pods, you can have a 30 minute ‘nap’ session which will make your body and mind feel as though you just slept 3-4 hours!
If you are unfamiliar with nap pods, below is a picture of one at our facility.
These are chairs that you comfortably lie in while music and sound massage your mind and body, relaxing you from head to toe. This neuromuscular massage has musical patterns that relax your central nervous system paired with symphony of calming music and soothing vibrations inducing sleepyness. The chair also has an ergonomic design for lower back tension, and provides a back massage. The Nap Pod sessions are great at relieving the stresses caused by insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, and depression. For more information on our Nap Pods, check out this link.
The Nap Pods use psychoacoustics to give a neuromuscular massage. Equipped with a GSS transducer delivers vibro-acustic music that travels through your central nervous system relaxing you from head to toe. As a result of many years of research on the positive impact of music and continuous motion in the human body, the Nap Pod was developed as the first therapeutic relaxation that allows you to reach complete mental and physical relaxation in just 30 minutes. This Neuromuscular massage replaces the tensions caused by stress, insomnia and fatigue, reduces cortisol levels that in turn reduce anxiety and depression.
Workplaces like Google, airports around the world, and many colleges and Universities in the US and Canada are integrating Nap Pods into how they do business. After all, workforce or student body that is well-rested is a more productive one.

Being more present is something we all can benefit from. Sensory Deprivation through flotation therapy is a unique opportunity for your body and mind. We live in a world that, for better or worse, demands our eyes, ears, fingertips and minds be constantly alert to an increasing amount of information. That’s to say nothing of the physical toll work and life take on our bodies. Especially with the Holidays just around the corner, we all need a break from our screens, and the stresses of the world on our senses. With Floating, you can enjoy silence. Your mind will enjoy the weightlessness of no calls, texts, emails, traffic, or sounds asking for its attention; your body will enjoy the actual weightlessness of floating, of completely surrendering its energy to the moment. You can take a moment to forget about an unchangeable past or an unknowable future by letting your senses be guided by the Float; to only think about the warm embrace of the water, to be present.
At SensaFloat Spa, we know many people are only beginning to realize the benefits of Epsom Salt and Floatation Therapy. Although we are often hesitant to try new things, and floating is not for everyone. Our facilities are a bit different than most. Our pods make it terribly easy for almost anyone to relax, get comfortable, feel safe, and to float in their own way. Worried about tanks that feel more like a punishment than an escape? Our pods can customize your float so you can float in whatever way makes you feel relaxed!
Floating in our pods is a treat to your mind, soul, and body, not a chore.
We all have different bodies, sensitivities, and ways of thinking. Likewise, we are all going to have different responses to sensory deprivation. At SensaFloat Spa, we understand that one size doesn’t fit all.
That’s why our pods our customizable. Want silence? We can do that. Do you want guided meditation to let you ease into the float? Our pods can do that too!
You can turn the light on or off inside the pod. Giving your senses a break from our overstimulating environments doesn’t have to mean imprisoning yourself in darkness. For others, they may enjoy the calm of no light.
People also might enjoy the closing the pod door; other folks might prefer to leave the top open. Our hydraulic bars make our pod lids adjustable, and easy for anyone to move. Even better, whether open or closed our pods will stay at a warm temperature, similar to our body temperature.
Our sensory deprivation experience is completely customizable depending to your specific needs. You can limit yourself of light and sound as much or as little as your body and mind desire.
