WHAT IS FLOATATION THERAPY?
An Effortless Way to Gain the Physical and Mental Benefits of Deep Meditation
Discovered in the 1950s at the National Institute of Mental Health and popularized as a therapy in the 1970's, floatation therapy (also known as sensory deprivation) removes all stimulation to your senses in order to trigger a deep relaxation response. This is done through various float environments, such as float pods , tanks, and open float rooms. These environments are designed to keep out all light and sound as the client floats like a cork in a hyper-salinated solution of magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salts). The only thing you may hear is your heart beating. After 30-40 minutes in this perfect dark, you will find yourself thinking one thought at a time accompanied with a mental and physical calm much like the calm you experience when you first wake up out of a restful sleep. A highly-effective truly unique experience.
