When we float, we’re removing many of the tasks processed by the left-brain. The lack of sensory stimulation gives our right-brain a chance to thrive. This simple phenomenon is why so many floaters report increased creativity during a float session. Research has shown that there is more unity between the right and left sides of the brain during and after a float. This synchronization may indeed be one of the biggest benefits of floatation therapy, and explains reports of “an increase in productivity, performance, efficiency, and generalized feelings of competence, confidence, and wholeness.
