Sensory Deprivation for Body and Mind: The Power of Float Therapy with Max Casa

Max Casa, The Shamanic Sensei, is an accomplished lifelong martial artist, performance coach and medicine man. Before becoming the founder of Max Vitality, Max trained day and night, for over a decade aiming to become the next top UFC prospect. His drive to become the best led him down the rabbit hole of biohacking and all around performance optimization.

Throughout this transformative journey, Max searched for the most impactful and effective methods for rejuvenating the mind and body, which led to his discovery of floatation therapy. By surrendering himself to the silent, dark, saltwater-filled tank, he not only experienced physical healing, but also a profound enhancement of his mental capabilities and a heightened connection with spirit.

Today, Max facilitates plant medicine ceremonies with float therapy as the centerpiece of his protocol – to teach others how to reset the mind, recover the body and revitalize the spirit.

Can floatation therapy improve not just your body, but your brain? 

Floatation therapy, or sensory deprivation, isn’t something we’ve talked about a lot on this show. But research indicates that it has some incredible benefits for your body and brain. It can help alleviate chronic pain, lower stress and anxiety, stimulate creativity, deepen meditation, and improve cognitive functionality.

I’m excited to welcome Max Casa to our show today. Max is a martial artist, instructor, biohacker, and performance coach. As the founder of Vitality Floats, he’s an expert on float therapy and he’s here to take you through what float therapy is and why you should use it.

There is power in silence and solitude. And float therapy taps into this by removing all external sensory stimulation which allows your mind and body the rest and rejuvenation it needs. If you’ve been curious about how sensory deprivation works and want to know how it can take your performance to the next level, this episode is for you.
