Float Tanks (or sensory deprivation tanks) mimic a zero-gravity experience, inside a pod filled with body temperature water and Epsom Salts, in a sound-proof environment.
Going for a ‘Float’ can make people feel a bit nervous, at first, and you can either choose to wear bathers, or choose to not wear anything. Before you enter the tank, you’ll have a quick, cool shower, and decide whether to have the light on or off. You are also able to avoid any claustrophobic tendencies by having the Float Tank lid open or closed. When lying in the pod, on your back, your muscles will soon begin to relax, and your mind will get a well-deserved rest! Watch the video below to learn more.
Floating was established as a form of therapy in the early 1950’s, and the studies conducted have shown it can:
Provide chronic and mild pain relief - for example: in those who suffer from fibromyalgia, and/or sports, joint, muscle and soft-tissue injuries
Relieve stress - by significantly reducing the stress hormone, cortisol
Help sufferers of depression - floating stimulates the production of dopamine (the ‘feel good’ hormone), and/or
Improve skin conditions - such as psoriasis, eczema and acne breakouts. The added Epsom Salts provide an amazing deep cleanser factor for your skin’s pores, and can rid your skin of acne-causing bacteria.
