Being Body Aware
Over the past week or so, I have had quite a few conversations with customers who are surprised about what their body ‘tells’ them during the float. Several customers were surprised when their body showed them that the source of pain was actually somewhere slightly different than the area they had been treating through massage or physiotherapy. The absence of pressure points and gravity, along with the quiet float environment provided the perfect environment for them to really pay attention to their body and the messages that it was sending out.
In his book “The Deep Self”, John C. Lilly describes the body sensation of floating . “Automatically the body assumes a position in which all sets of agonist/antagonist muscles are precisely balanced, with knees and elbows flexed…. I learned a good deal about my habitual physical tension-patterns and tightness from old injuries from the asymmetry of my body in this relaxed state”
So, we recommend spending a bit of time in your float, deeply listening to your body, sending loving thoughts to the places that need healing and to the parts that help you move through your day. You may be surprised at what you learn.
