Restricted environment stimulation therapy has been making serious waves within the medical community due to the immense numbers of reports that were pouring in from all over the world. Athletes headed these ‘report packs’ as they claimed to be able to perform better at sporting events after undergoing float therapy.
A group of students who underwent 3 months of Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy in Melbourne (R.E.S.T) scored higher in their exams, people who suffered from chronic headaches or pain started feeling lesser pain and people who had suffered from insomnia for years were able to go to sleep peacefully without medication.
These reports could not be ignored anymore and medical researchers from across the planet decided to have a look at this phenomenon which was more than a half century old with roots associated to 2000 year old spas that were once located within a ‘stone’s throw’ from the dead sea.
What these researchers found astounded not just themselves, but the entire world. The findings indicated that the impact of Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy actually frees up the resources our brain use in order to manage the effects of external stimuli such as gravity, temperature, sight, sound and smell which would probably take a thousand super computers a month to process the same information that our brain processes in a split second.
Such enormous brain processing power when released from its routine duties, the brain actually redirects these resources to mend our biological and bio-chemical balances which are only managed superficially by our brain on most days.
In more simple terms and to make a very long story short, Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy actually prevents our brain from overheating due to the non-stop bombardment of stimuli from external sources which includes as mentioned above vision, temperature, taste noise and odour and the biggest brain resource ‘drainer’ which is gravity.
This is because gravity impacts us in every way imaginable and this constant tug by gravity requires our brain to ‘automate adjustments’ for every physical activity we engage in using our subconscious mind base which also makes sure our heartbeats are kept regular, our blood pressure is maintained optimally and cells do what they are supposed to do without being told.
Researchers are still only scratching the surface of this healing practice as they prefer to call it and are slowly peeling off the layers of its mechanics using the latest technological inventions.
According to many researchers, this understanding of the therapy would not have been possible in the 80s or 90s because of the lack of technology at that time. According to a group of researchers who are at present investigating the impact of Restricted Environment Stimulation Therapy even the receptors that send messages to the brain incessantly are fine-tuned during these therapy sessions.
The have proven that this therapy actually balances out some of the most critical hormones that we naturally produce which include adrenaline, cortisol, dopamine and endorphins which play a critical role in regulating everything else inside us.
