The Basics of Graphic Design for the Busy Business Owner, Kathryn Sullivan 2022 Float Conference
Most float center owners are a little lost when it comes to putting together promotional materials, maintaining a social media account, and interacting with printers. I'll run through simple things like which programs to use, the difference between making a file for print vs for digital, how to approach designing any webpage and/or ad, and the nitty gritty of how to present a brand visually.
Breathing & Floatation, James Nestor 2022 Float Conference
Floating and breathwork are two vastly different therapies, yet each offers a similar range of benefits: reduced stress, lower blood pressure, faster healing, improved immune function. Is slow, rhythmic breathing just a response to the floatation environment or the primary driver behind many of its benefits?
Whole body Photobiomodulation for fibromyalgia and other pain syndromes , James Carroll 2022 Float
Seven and a half million Americans suffer from an ""incurable"" pain called Fibromyalgia (FM). FM is a widespread hypersensitive chronic muscle pain; patients also experience chronic fatigue and sleeping problems. Photobiomodulation (PBM) is the medical application of light and has been clinically proven to reduce inflammation and pain wherever the beam is applied. The following study, presented at the British Pain Society in June 2022, showed that whole body Photobiomodulation substantially relieved pain and other symptoms of fibromyalgia. Forty-two fibromyalgia patients participated in the triple-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial and were randomized to receive a NovoTHOR treatment (or a placebo NovoTHOR treatment) for 20 minutes, three times a week, for four weeks. At the end of the study, there was a statistically significant reduction in pain and a statistically significant improvement in Quality of Life in the active NovoTHOR group. Psychological factors (kinesiophobia, self-efficacy) also improved. The authors concluded that NovoTHOR whole-body PBM is a safe, effective, drug-free treatment for fibromyalgia.
Floating With Sharks, Marshall Hammond | 2022 Float Conference
Floating with Sharks: John C. Lilly and the CIA's Mind Control Operations From brain implants to sensory deprivation tanks, to LSD and trained dolphin assassins, this talk will examine John C. Lilly's life-long, sometimes uneasy relationship with the U.S. government, particularly its military and intelligence agencies, amidst the backdrop of the Cold War. We'll discuss how Lilly's work at the NIMH was very likely conducted under the auspices of the CIA's MK Ultra program. We'll take a look at Lilly's proposal for the creation of "Modified Human Agents" and ponder the question of whether Lilly may have been an agent himself, witting or unwitting, in one or more of the CIA's clandestine operations.
