Do you practice mindfulness? Imagine what a calmer, clear-headed, and focused mind could achieve. The following therapies are practised worldwide by many in hopes of achieving peace of mind. Some can even help with physical and emotional healing. So head down to one of these sessions with an open mind, attempt to achieve the state of zen, and emerge feeling refreshed.

Sound Healing

Used today by Traditional Chinese Medicine doctors, Reiki masters, Feng Shui artists, massage therapists, healers and energy practitioners, Sound healing is an integrative medicine for healing and transformational change now recognised in the field of Quantum Physics and increasingly in modern science. Sound healing activates the parasympathetic nervous system which helps you to relax and reduces cortisol levels which reduce anxiety. Other benefits include the promotion of deeper sleep and positive thoughts, as well as increased vital energy flow.

Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is a method of energy healing based on the fundamental principle that the body has an inherent natural ability to heal itself. The application of Pranic Healing is to remove the diseased, stagnant energies and to accelerate the recovery process by providing fresh energy to the affected parts of the physical body. This therapy requires no drug, apparatus and physical contact as the healer works on the bio-field or energy body of the subject. It is not meant to replace conventional medicine but rather to complement and enhance it. The integrated approach of combining both processes helps to heal the physical body much faster, without any side effects.

Sensory Deprivation Floating Therapy

In a floating tank, all the stress and pressure that builds up in your body and mind over time melts away as you float effortlessly. For an hour or so, your mind is free from distraction and your body is free from gravity. You enter a deep meditative state, while everything works to reverse the harmful effects of stress. You feel lighter, clear-headed, and stretched out after, thanks to the powerful combination of reduced sensory input, weightlessness, and Epsom salt. Floating regularly helps you manage stress better, boosts your fitness, and improves your health.

5. Palm Ave Float Club

Palm Ave Float Club has six float pods, each housed in a private and spacious room, with your own shower and provision of fresh towels, earplugs and toiletries. Luxuriously spacious and comfortable Dreampod floatation tanks are designed to make you feel safe and get the deep rest you need. Afterwards, unwind with a view of lush greenery surrounding the Kallang Riverside. Stay as long as you like, leave feeling brand new.

Floating fast tracks your brain into theta state and as you gain greater access to your right hemisphere, it boosts creativity and problem-solving skills. With reduced sensory input, your mind is also more receptive to new ideas and so this is great for anyone trying to kick addictive habits. Their clients include working professionals who wish to relieve stress, athletes, meditators, and people with sleep problems. Anyone who wishes to cultivate mental discipline or focus would benefit greatly from floating, as it provides the perfect environment to examine your thought patterns.
