What is Floating?
As you may have gathered by the name, floating involves floating in a pod filled with water designed for short term sensory deprivation. The water in the pod is mixed with medical grade Epsom salt that allows your body to be completely buoyant. Float tanks are also called Isolation Tanks or Sensory Deprivation Tanks.
Floating reduces external stimuli as much as possible to help the body achieve a natural restorative state. By reducing sensory input, floating allows your brain to relax, in turn lowering your body’s level of cortisol (the main chemical component of stress). Without gravity holding you down, your muscles, joints and bones are also allowed to fully relax. Some people compare the experience of floating to meditation or yoga.
The Epsom salts used in the tank also offer great benefits to your skin. The salts soften and replenish your skin and can help counteract magnesium deficiencies.
Floating has been used for a variety of reasons, both anecdotal and scientifically backed:
To promote relaxation
For more restful sleep
To learn to meditate
