ABOUT AERIAL RELAXATION PODS™

London's first multi-sensory aerial relaxation experience with live ambient music and nurturing electronica, aromatherapy, sky-blue silky aerial hammocks to soothe your stresses away and lift your spirit!

"An oasis of calm in our busy lives."

Londoners stressed out by their busy lives can now turn to Aerial Relaxation Pods™  to transform their tension to calm, and restore the body’s natural healing wisdom.

 “Our pods are here to help Londoners relax. As a former teacher myself, I am fully aware just how busy and stressed a lot of people are. And most of us just don't find the time to unwind. Our Aerial Relaxation Pods are going to help you alleviate stress, providing time & space to allow your body to deeply rest, harmonising your nervous system. You’ll feel rejuvenated and refreshed after one session.” Seth Newman, co-founder of Aerial Relaxation Pods.

WHY HAMMOCKS? ROCK-ABYE-BABY & RESEARCH

Two new studies published in Current Biology suggest our brains are evolutionarily programmed to respond to rocking. Research also provides insight into why rocking is calming to babies. The brain wave synchronization occurs much easier through a rocking motion and allows the baby to feel more at home (i.e. it feels closer to being in the womb). And let’s not forget that we spend the first nine months of our lives being gently rocked in an amniotic sea.

“Since immemorial times we’ve rocked our babies, and often ourselves, to sleep,” says lead author on the new paper, Konstantinos Kompotis, at the University of Lausanne, also in Switzerland. “Our study provides new insights into the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying this phenomenon.”

Dr Michael J Breus, a Certified Sleep Specialist, states that it’s the simplest of soothing, sleep-inducing remedies, something we all naturally do: rocking a baby gently to sleep.

But why does it work? How exactly does a gentle rhythmic motion change the sleep architecture of the brain? Repetitive motions, like those experienced in the gentle rocking of a hammock, can soothe anxiety.  Dr. Herbert Benson, founder of Harvard’s Mind/Body Medical Institute, recommends repetitive movement to elicit your body’s relaxation response. This reaction allows a lower heart rate, blood pressure, and muscle tension.

The gentle rocking of a hammock will boost brain wave oscillations associated with better sleep and has been shown to provide a fertile ground for deep relaxation. More specifically, the rocking fortifies the brain waves that are naturally present during sleep which help maintain deep relaxation. Neuroscientist Laurence Bayer of the University of Geneva in Switzerland, likens the findings to our intuitive appreciation that a slowly rocking hammock can relax us and do wonders for our mood. “This is potentially a very promising avenue for future clinical research,” he notes. Rocking to sleep may have significant health benefits such as better quality of sleep and even improved long-term memory formation.

We all instinctively know about the power of a soothing, repetitive rocking motion and this in combination with live ambient soundscapes and aromatherapy is a potent synthesis for deep relaxation.

FEEDBACK FROM OUR SESSIONS:

"Words are inadequate to express the uniquely nurturing experience I had during your class... and the music was amazing! The feeling of being securely wrapped in a silk hammock from head to toe, suspended in the air, slowly rocking, with the gentle breath meditation, the crystal bowls and the ambient music created a sublime and profound atmosphere. It was as if I was in a cocoon of total support, allowing peace to flow into my entire being." - Alison

"Being someone who is always on the move and finds it very difficult to relax, I found this session to be really valuable ‘me time!’ Initially, I found it difficult to let go and unwind where the muscles in my arms and legs were contracting. After a few minutes, I started to drift away into a soft slumber which was deeply relaxing. Despite this my senses were heightened and I became very conscious of the sounds that seemed to travel through my ears, vibrating all the way into my body. The gentle movements of the hammock with the music in the background made me feel like a young infant being rocked to sleep. A wonderfully calming and soothing experience, with the added bonus of not having to put in any physical effort. Great! I look forward to more of this."  - Navpreet
