About Float Therapy

Float therapy, sensory deprivation, floating… no matter what you call it, it’s simply the quickest and most incredible way to achieve stress relief and complete relaxation.

Sensory deprivation tanks contain water that is saturated with 1100 pounds of epsom salt, creating a very similar environment to the dead sea. As a result of having a salt water solution that is 35% salt, the water inside a float tank is about twelve times more buoyant than regular ocean water. This allows the individual to float weightlessly and effortlessly on the surface of the water.

The water is also maintained at a consistent temperature of 34 °C, which is the same temperature as human skin, making it almost impossible for the individual to distinguish between body parts that are in contact with the water to those that aren’t! This effectively eliminates sensations in the body, tricking the mind into believing that the body is floating weightlessly in the air.

“Floatation REST has many physical and mental benefits because it provides an unparalleled level of relaxation. With the elimination of external stimuli, the central nervous system’s workload is reduced by as much as 90%.” encyclopedia.com

Frequently Asked Questions F.A.Q’s

What is floating?

A float tank is used to help people experience ultimate peace and relaxation by effortlessly floating in the Epsom salt water solution in a private session that lasts one hour or longer. Ultimate relaxation is achieved as a result of being in a dark and soundproof pod where you float in a solution that is the same temperature as your body, effectively shutting off most of your senses that would otherwise distract you.

Can anyone float?

Yes. Float tanks are used by many people for various reasons such as individuals that work in high stress environments, elite athletes, overworked mothers or anyone else that simply wants to experience a deeply relaxed physical, mental and emotional state. It is, however, highly recommended that anyone who suffers from some sort of medical condition consult their primary care physician before entering a float tank.

Will I feel claustrophobic inside a float tank?

this is a valid concern that many people have before entering into a small enclosed space like a float tank. Our spacious float tanks (8ft long by 5ft wide) allow the floater to stretch out their arms and legs, and even sit up if they feel the urge to, reducing the feeling of being claustrophobic. To further reduce this fear, our float tanks have the option of inside lighting that can be controlled by the floater and have doors that can easily be unlocked and opened from the inside.

What if I am not a good swimmer?

There is no need to worry about being able to swim as our float tanks are only filled with 10-12 inches of water with such a high density of Epsom salt that any individual who enters it will float effortlessly.

What is Epsom Salt?

Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is a mineral found in several environments around the world such as in the Dead Sea. This mineral is known to help strengthen the immune system, detoxify the body, cause the release of endorphins and provide stress relief on the physical, mental and emotional level.

Will I become sensitive to the temperature of the water?

No. Our float tanks have a self-monitoring temperature control that continuously keeps the water at a temperature of 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature has been chosen because it is the same temperature as the surface of the skin, which effectively shuts off your sense of touch creating a feeling of floating in nothingness.

How does floating affect the mind?

immersing yourself in a float tank will allow you to reach levels of deep mental relaxation, allowing the brain to produce a greater amount of theta waves. Having a greater amount of theta waves is associated with gaining more mental clarity, imagery, creativity and memory. In addition to this, floating also triggers the release of endorphins which will help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression and other negative mental habits.

Is the water inside a float tank sanitary?

Yes. Our float tanks are specifically designed to ensure that the water is sanitary at all times. This is accomplished as a result of the following features and requirements:

  1. the high concentration of Epsom salt in the water naturally kills off 99.9% of bacteria
  2. the water inside the pod is completely filtered through our high-tech filtration system after every session
  3. the water inside is continuously monitored so that an appropriate amount of chlorine can be added to maintain a constant water hygiene
  4. individuals are required to take a shower prior to entering the float tank

Having these systems in place creates an environment that is hundreds of times more sanitary than your ordinary pool or hot tub.

What should I wear inside a float tank?

The most important thing is that you are comfortable during this experience. Since you are in complete privacy you can go in wearing nothing at all or, if you’d like, you can also wear a bathing suit.

Is floating safe for pregnant women?

Absolutely! Floating for pregnant women can actually help significantly relieve muscle pain and tension as a result of the deep relaxation achieved in a float tank. It is still recommended, however, that pregnant women consult their physician prior to entering a float tank, especially those in their first trimester.

Things to remember
  • Do not enter a float tank if you are intoxicated in any way (drugs or alcohol)
  • Do not float if you have any open wounds or serious injuries
  • Do not float if you have certain medical conditions such as epilepsy, incontinence, nausea or have been advised by a physician not to float
  • Do not float if you are under the age of 18 and do not have parental consent
