We live in a busy world that produces many different stimuli and stressors, physically and emotionally. Floating in a sensory deprivation float tank allows your body and mind to let go. You are suspended inside an 8 foot by 4 foot tank in 10" to 12" of 93-94 degree water which is the same as your skin temperature. The only physical sensation is the surface tension of the water which contains 750 pounds of diluted Epsom salt, allowing a body of any size to be completely buoyant. As you float, light and sound can be controlled by pressing buttons located inside the tank. For those who have concerns about claustrophobia the door to the tank can be left open. The main goal is to allow yourself to relax completely, let go, and experience a deeper state of consciousness.
Physical Benefits of Floating
Floating relieves stress, helps with anxiety, depression, PTSD, recovery from athletic events/injuries, diminishes pain, among many other proven benefits. The Epsom salts dissolved in the water are great for softening your skin, help purge toxins from the body, improve circulation, and regulate electrolyte levels.
Spiritual Benefits of Floating
Floating is the "off switch to the world". The sensation of complete weightlessness and lack of stimuli allow mood enhancing chemicals like dopamine, serotonin and endorphins to be released. Through this absence of stimuli you mind is able to drift into a meditative state allowing the production of Theta brain waves, which are only produced through deep meditation
