Floating - “Meditation Training Wheels”
This video is from the Joe Rogan Experience with Dr. Rhonda Patrick. Patrick explains how meditation has been shown to have beneficial effects not just on brain aging, but overall aging. Meditation prevents the shortening of telomeres which means the practice slows aging in general. “The way it does this is by activating the enzyme telomerase, which isn’t normally active in our cells,” Patrick explains.
Float therapy has often been referred to as “Meditation Training Wheels.” The sensory deprivation environment cuts out the real world distractions which often make achieving healthy meditation brain states difficult. The float environment can help those new to meditation experience the benefits even in their first sensory deprivation session. For those experienced in meditation, the float tank is a place to enhance your practice and reach deeper and prolonged states.
