In the video above I discussed my initial experience (spoiler alert I loved it!) at the Float House Abbotsford. However, since I had the pleasure of enjoying my third float session, I wanted to reflect on my experience of incorporating regular flotation sessions into my routine as a third year medical student clerk at UBC.
The simplest way I would describe flotation therapy is mindfulness or meditation on steroids. The combination of the near elimination of sensory input and the length of time are a very powerful combination that expedite learning and relaxation. In an ideal world I would do floats every two weeks but that is not realistic given my current demanding schedule. Nevertheless each float is better than the last.
I am a medical student who is obsessed with the Be Activated Muscle Activation Technique, mastering movement and understanding what makes humans thrive.
