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
