what is a float tank?
The first floatation tank was invented by physician and neuroscientist John C. Lilly in 1954 in order to study the effects of sensory deprivation. Present day floatation tanks are designed to create a space that is ideal for relaxation and the rejuvenation of your mind and body. Research shows that the effects of a two hour float session are equivalent to eight hours of deep sleep, making it one of the most effective and comprehensive relaxation techniques available. Perhaps one of the greatest qualities of the tank is that it helps to stimulate the body's own power of healing and regeneration. This helps promote homeostasis within the body, strengthening the body's resistance to the effects of stress, illness and injury.
The float tank is 4' x 4' x 8' enclosed tank of water. It is filled with 10" of water and 850 pounds of medical grade Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate), making you extremely buoyant. It is warmed to skin temperature and you are completely free from light, noise, and the outside environment. You float in the tank for a glorious 90 minute session. When your session is finished, you will feel a deep sense of relaxation and well-being.
