Let's face it, these days we are all over stressedand over worked with little or no time for ourselves. In a world catering to the hustle and bustle of life and non stop technology bombarding us at every turn, we have lost sight of how to be still and be present within our own minds and bodies. Whether you are a frazzled parent, an overworked employee, an athlete trying to get in the zone, suffering from chronic pain, or simply trying to get to a higher state of meditation, floating can be very beneficial for your mind, body, and spirit. Nearly all external stimuli is eliminated during your float, allowing the brain to go from highly conscious beta and alpha waves to theta waves easily.

WAVE | FREQUENCY | ASSOCIATED MENTAL STATE
Beta 12hz - 38hz Wide awake. This is generally the mental state most people are in during the day and most of their waking lives. Usually, this state in itself is uneventful, but don't underestimate its importance. Many people lack sufficient Beta activity, which can cause mental or emotional disorders such as depression, ADD and insomnia. Stimulating Beta activity can improve emotional stability, energy levels, attentiveness and concentration.
Alpha 8hz - 12hz Awake but relaxed and not processing much information. When you get up in the morning and just before sleep, you are naturally in this state. When you close your eyes your brain automatically starts producing more Alpha waves. Alpha is usually the goal of experienced meditators, but to enter it using NP2 is incredibly easy. Since Alpha is a very receptive, absorbent mental state, you can also use it for effective self-hypnosis, mental re-programming, accelerated learning and more.
Theta 4hz - 7hz Light sleep or extreme relaxation. Theta can also be used for hypnosis, accelerated learning and self-programming using pre-recorded suggestions.
Delta 0.2hz - 3hz Deep, dreamless sleep. Delta is the slowest band of brainwaves. When your dominant brainwave is Delta, your body is healing itself and "resetting" its internal clocks. You do not dream in this state and are completely unconscious.
