Float Therapy

Float Therapy

Also known as: Sensory Deprivation Tanks, Float Tanks, Epsom Salt Floats


High doses of Epsom salt are dissolved in 180 gallons of water that creates a control environment that allows the body to float without effort. The main benefit of using a sensory deprivation tank is to ease mental anxiety and muscle tension. Due to how buoyant the Epsom salt and water solution is, you can fully relax all of your muscles when floating. Research shows that floating measurably reduces your blood pressure and heart rate while at the same time lowering stress levels.

Float therapy provides a deep state of relaxation that stimulates blood flow through all of your body’s tissues and releases natural endorphins. When we reduce external sensory stimuli, we are able to better relax and focus on yourself. Preliminary research suggests that float therapy may be useful for reducing stress, easing anxiety, helping with pains and aches, and improving sleep.
