Sensory Deprivation Float Tanks For Home or Spa

Sensory deprivation float tanks consist of an enclosed tub that is filled with a supersaturated solution of water and Epsom salts that is maintained at body temperature.  The high level of salinity makes it easy to float—indeed floaters often describe the feeling as being weightless.  The float tank blocks out sight and sound, freeing the mind to self-explore in a state that approximates meditation.  Float tanks are based on the hypothesis that if we can eliminate the distractions of external stimuli we can improve our mind/body alignment and get in touch with our inner selves.

FLOAT THERAPY BENEFITS

Float tanks provide the ultimate “unplugged” experience—an hour-long float session free of sound, sight, gravity and other external distractions, lets the brain and body naturally “rewire” themselves.

Today, more than ever, we are bombarded by an onslaught of sounds, images, and electronic waves that are unrelenting in the toll they take on the mind and body. A University of Southern California Brain and Creativity Institute study confirms that 21st Century living puts “our primitive grey matter under such stress that we can no longer think wisely or empathize with others.” Float therapy is a practical and effective solution to these increased stress levels.

Benefits of float therapy include:

  • Decreased stress and anxiety
  • Decrease in feelings of depression
  • Reduced pain levels
  • Improvement in positive
  • attitudes
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved quality of sleep
  • Improved creative thought processes
  • Improved concentration and focus
  • Improved recovery time in athletes
  • Increased overall well-being

Obviously, buying a float tank is a commitment.  Aside from financial considerations, you need to have the necessary space in your home for it that is accessible to an electrical outlet.  For convenience, you may also wish to hire a plumber to hook up your salt tank to your water and drainage system although this is not necessary.  The best way to look at this is as an investment in yourself—are you worth investing in a float tank to reduce your stress, gain peace and wellness, and generally enjoy life more?

Couldn't be happier with my float tank. I always wanted one since seeing Altered States and finally my dream came true.

I have several float tanks in my float spa center. I've expanded my operation recently and couldn't believe your pricing. I took the plunge and couldn't be more satisfied with your float tank--it's just as good as my other units at half the price.

FAQ

Which float tank should I buy?

Since the purpose of a float tank is to eliminate sensory information, it needs to be big enough that you can float without touching any of the sides. Make sure you check the dimensions as well because many float tanks will not fit through a standard size door and conducting float tank sessions in your garage is not the best environment.

How sanitary are float tanks?

If the float tank is properly cleaned and the water filtered and sterilized between sessions you should be fine. The problem is that you can never be sure when visiting a float tank spa what their cleaning routine is—in which case, the float tank may only be as sanitary as the last person to use it before you. Bear in mind that draining a float tank, sterilizing and filtering the water, and then refilling the float tank can take several hours, so if the float tank spa you attend is scheduling back-to-back sessions, then you should be concerned.

Are float tanks bad for your hair?

If your hair is natural—i.e. it’s not colored or permed or keratin treated it should be fine. Salt is actually beneficial to natural hair as long as you thoroughly rinse it out after your session.

Are float tanks dangerous?

Float tanks are less dangerous than swimming pools because of the natural buoyancy provided by the super saturated salt solution they use. Some people even fall asleep while floating. That said, make sure you have a “spotter” who can supervise your float experience in case you run into any problems.

Are float tanks warm?

Float tanks work best when the water is as close to body temperature as possible (98.6° F). This is warmer than a swimming pool but cooler than a hot shower.

What happens in a sensory deprivation tank?

During a sensory deprivation or float tank session, you are disconnected from auditory, olfactory, gustatory and visual sensory stimulation. You are also disconnected from gravity due to the natural buoyancy of the floating solution—it’s similar to being weightless in outer space. This allows you to connect more deeply with your inner self and mind for an introspective experience.

Why should I use a sensory deprivation tank?

Sensory deprivation has many beneficial effects. It can reduce tension and stress. It can improve your sleep quality. It can reduce your blood pressure. It can speed up your muscle recovery. It can help you meditate without trying. It can enhance your creativity. It can allow you to get in touch with your inner being which is fundamental for self-improvement.

What should I wear in a sensory deprivation tank?

The best results from a sensory deprivation tank float session come from floating in the nude. Some people choose to wear goggles and earplugs. If you normally wear these when swimming in a pool, then go ahead and use them.
