Also known as Floatation Therapy, REST Therapy (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique) or Sensory Deprivation. Flotation therapy (floating) is an experience that involves lying down in a saltwater solution in silent darkness. The tank is essentially a big bath tub (4.5 feet wide and 8 feet long) filled with 10 inches of water and 1100 lbs. of magnesium sulfate (epsom salt). The high amount of salt makes the water extremely buoyant and enables the body to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. The solution is kept at a temperature of roughly 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit. This is the same temperature as the outside of the human body, making the water neither hot or cold. The air inside is also regulated to the same temperature so that there is no difference between where the water stops and the air starts, allowing you to loose track of your body. There is a light inside the float tank, that when turned off, becomes completely dark. The float tank are also mitigate sound. Therefore negating all outside environmental stimulus from entering your brain. This allows the mind, body, (and soul!), to rest, rejuvenate and restore, free from all outside distractions from this crazy but oh so beautiful world.
