The science of floatation therapy simulates zero gravity to help rejuvenate the body.

A sensory deprivation tank, also known as an isolation tank or float tank, creates an ideal environment for relaxation and renewal. The pitch-black, soundproof chamber blocks noise and distractions. The tank is filled with water that is warmed to the average external temperature of the human body and mixed with over 800 pounds of Epsom salt; the ratio of water and salt provides the perfect solution to allow the body to float on the surface. Epsom salt is actually magnesium sulfate. Magnesium sulfate is known for many benefits, such as cleansing and detoxifying the body, as well as softening the skin and hair.

What is Floatation Therapy?

Floatation therapy is a natural treatment used to help heal the body and mind through sensory deprivation.  Floatation tanks, also known as sensory deprivation tanks, create a zero-gravity environment emulating floating in space. Scientific research has recognized the therapeutic benefits achieved from this deep relaxation state, including a strengthened immune system, whole brain thinking, and relief from pain, stress, and insomnia. In fact, one hour of floating has the restorative effects of 4 hours sleep.

There isn’t a stereotypical float tank user, almost everyone can benefit from floatation therapy. Clients use the sensory deprivation tank for various reasons, such as, health and wellness, personal growth, stress management, and pain relief. The tank has proven highly beneficial for sufferers of back pain, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia. The effects of floating are collective, the more frequent you float, the greater the benefits.

Won’t meditation give you the same results? It would take a long period of time and practice to reach the deep levels of relaxation acquired through floatation therapy. The tank creates an environment that is similar to the Dead Sea and transports the user into an experience of total weightlessness; every muscle is able to relax. The solitude of the pitch-black, soundproof tank eliminates outside stimuli and allows the user to encounter a deep relaxation state without effort.
