“…any second now, my head will touch the bottom of the tub. I cannot float in water this shallow… any second now.
Stand up! Turn the light on! Just sit up for a minute, then lie down again!”
Gently I remind myself that I need not do anything. My relaxation deepens.
My heartbeat grew louder until it was all that I was aware of. Deep trance.
Then a thought popped in… (I felt as though I was waking up in my bed at home in Australia)… “OMG! I’m floating in a tank in Chicago!”
My profound thought for this moment in time is that ‘I am wherever my mind is.’
When I grow up, I want a float tank!
Thanks Dr. Weissman
Came to float with a lot of trepidation. Howie made sure all my concerns were addressed and put at ease. First I did the FIR which was pretty great – then showered in the fabulous rain shower.
The float experience started out with me feeling pretty anxious – but within a few minutes, I was able to let go and Relax! I definitely want to do it again – no that I know what to expect.
All in it all – it was great. I even can tell that my injured heel is better than when I got here.
Thank you Howie for providing this service.
I want to tell you about a wonderful place and doctor who has helped me to begin to manage the tremendous chronic, phantom limb pain that I have been experiencing since my accident. The holistic doctor’s name is Howard Weissman and his office is called the Chicago Stress Relief Center. The web address is www.stressreliefcenter.com.
Dr. Weissman provides all of his patients with a free “Stress Consultation” in either his Chicago or Northbrook office. Dr. Weissman is personable with a great bedside manor.
One of the most amazing treatments in Dr. Weissman’s arsenal is the “sensory deprivation flotation tank.” The only way to describe the experience in this salt water pitch black chamber (salinated to the consistency level of the Dead Sea), which is heated to your exact body temperature, is to compare it to floating in a zero gravity chamber, completely weightless without stress on any bones or joints in your body. Being in this chamber is the only true pain relief that I have experienced since my accident and I credit Dr. Weissman’s treatment methods with enabling me to reach this point in my recovery.
Dr. Weissman specializes in all aspects of stress and pain management and has been instrumental in guiding me to start to manage my chronic pain.
I highly recommend Dr. Weissman who can be reached at (847) 412-0922.
