What happens here?
Once inside the pod it’s the complete darkness, silence and freedom from the sense of touch and gravity that allows your primary senses to be deceived.
This allows the ‘left side’ of your brain to do very little and so therefore begins to slow. This triggers a relaxed state so profound that your brain and body are fooled into believing that both are asleep.
Your body now effectively switches to ’night time’ mode where it rests, resets and rebuilds.
Why this is important
Since a deep relaxation state is achieved, this allows your body to recover from stress. This also means that Pain is relieved. Blood flows freely through all the tissues, helping to release natural endorphins, which are associated with relaxation and meditation.
As a result, it feels good!!!
