You can imagine floatation like this: Due to the completely relaxed floating situation in absolute silence and darkness (optionally with meditative music and/or very reduced light) all body functions drive down to a minimal level, the entire body is like switched off, except the brain which continues to operate on a different frequency.

Since the water temperature is equal to that one of the skin, we may loose the body surface sensation. The whole body can 'disappear' or it merges with the brine. Gravity perception disappears just because we don't feel any more pressure points on our skin. Under normal circumstances small areas of skin carry the body weight. The pressure perception suggests us our weight, means the gravity. During the floatation the entire back side of the body carries the weight, the pressure information disappears and can no longer be localized.

As we eliminate all stimulus information in this way, we almost automatically slide into a very deep state of relaxation. This can also be achieved with meditation, it takes just far more exercise.

About 90% of the brain capacity are used to process the information on these four stimulus levels (visual, auditive, temperature and gravity stimuli). So 90% of the capacity of the brain will not be used any more in the tank - or does it? Unlike the processor of a computer our nerve center will continue working on 'average load', so now it has capacity to process lots of our previous open issues (like dreaming!).

Through the illusion of weightlessness our musculoskeletal apparatus is freed from the burden of the body, the muscles relax at the maximum. The joints, intervertebral discs, ligaments and tendons are completely uncharged. Salutary effects can be set in record time.

The equilibria sympathetic parasympathetic, endorphins stress hormones, Yin & Yang adjust at new, well-being is achieved. After floating, you feel calm, refreshed and invigorated. You will be ready to continue your regular life with renewed energy and vigor.

Sie können sich das Floaten so vorstellen: Durch das völlig entspannte Schweben in der absoluten Stille und Dunkelheit (wahlweise mit meditativer Musik und/oder stark reduziertem Licht) fahren alle Körperfunktionen auf ein Minimum herunter, der gesamte Körper wird wie abgeschaltet, bis auf das Gehirn, das arbeitet auf einer anderen Schwingungsebene weiter.

Da die Wassertemperatur derjenigen der Körperoberfläche entspricht, spüren wir diese praktisch nicht mehr. Der gesamte Körper kann 'verschwinden', er wird nicht mehr wahr genommen oder er verschmilzt mit der Sole. Die Schwerkraftwahrnehmung verschwindet ebenso, weil wir keine Druckstellen auf der Haut mehr spüren. Normalerweise tragen kleine Hautareale das Körpergewicht. Über die Druckwahrnehmung schliessen wir auf das Gewicht, bzw die Schwerkraft. Dadurch dass beim Floaten die gesamte Körperrückseite das Gewicht trägt, verschwinden die Druckinformationen und sind nicht mehr lokalisierbar.

Da wir auf diese Weise alle Reizinformationen ausschalten, rutschen wir praktisch automatisch in einen extrem tiefen Entspannungszustand. Dieser ist mit Meditation auch erreichbar, bloss braucht es dafür viel mehr Übung.

Rund 90% der Kapazität des Gehirnes werden zur Verarbeitung der Informationen auf diesen vier Reizebenen (visuelle, auditive, Temperatur- und Schwerkraftreize) verwendet. 90% der Kapazität des Gehirnes werden im Tank nicht mehr benutzt - oder doch? Anders als der Prozessor eines Computers arbeitet unsere Nervenzentrale auf 'mittlerer Last' weiter, hat nun Kapazität, vieles zu verarbeiten, das vorher 'liegen geblieben' ist (Träumen!).

Durch die Illusion der Schwerelosigkeit wird unser Bewegungs- und Stützapparat von der Last des Körpers befreit, die Muskeln entspannen sich maximal. Die Gelenke, Bandscheiben, Sehnen und Bänder sind absolut unbelastet. Heilsame Effekte können sich in Rekordzeit einstellen. Die Gleichgewichte Sympathikus Parasympathikus, Endorphine Stresshormone, Yin Yang pendeln sich neu ein, Wohlbefinden stellt sich ein. Nach dem Floaten fühlen Sie sich ruhig, erfrischt und gestärkt. Sie sind bereit, mit neuer Energie und Kraft ins Leben zurückzukehren.

Floaten ist wie eine Wellness-Insel, mitten im Alltag. Wellness im Zentrum von Bern.

  • A very unique, pleasant and relaxing experience! I cannot fully compare the feeling of floating to any other experience that I remember since being born... which made it feel very special. In my recent first experience at Float Bern in the tank I felt quite tense in the beginning of the session. My muscles somehow tried to "hold on" and I remember them twitching a couple of times, before slowly one area after another relaxed and helped me lose a lot of the tension (I am a typical office worker that spends lots of hours in front of computers, with frequent tensions in the neck, thoracic spine, shoulders and lower back). About halfway through the session I noticed how practical and easy it was to really stretching my whole body out from head to toe - probably thanks to the relaxed muscles and the lack of gravitational forces that usually pull your feet toward the floor. As instructed by the owner toward the end of the session I also focused on trying out the mobility of the spine through some light twisting and it really felt great and had a very smooth feel without the usual tension. As for my mind, at the beginning I was a little nervous about being claustrophobic and worried about not getting out again :D That fairly quickly went away, about the same time my body started to relax and let go. Throughout the session I was always awake, although a couple of times I caught myself almost falling asleep, but because it was my first time doing it my mind wandered off quite a bit and I was in my thoughts a lot (probably because I am a very strong thinker). In the end the doubts I had in the beginning were unfounded and there was nothing to worry about. Overall a great experience with the floating as well as with the owner, a super nice guy! I recommend it and will probably do it again sometime.
  • Chris is a great guy who will be sure to take care of you if you visit for a float! I highly recommend him.
