What is a float tank?
This service can help with relaxation, muscle service for athletes, and a wide variety of personal reflection. Lay back and let the tank to do work!
Logistically a float tank is approximately 4 feet by 8 feet (48x96 inches), which is bigger than a twin bed but not as wide as a full. and shaped like a box. It is filled with 10 inches of water and then 600 pounds of Epsom salt and 50 pounds of Dead Sea salt, which 50 pounds of Dead Sea salt converts to 100 pounds of Epsom salt . Some float centers use all Epsom salt, but by using part Dead Sea salt we can keep the water cleaner longer. Epsom salts contain magnesium and sulfates, which are very good for a person to absorb. The solution is skin temperature, which is approximately 93.5F. This helps the water and air blend in with the temperature of your skin and therefore the sensation disappears.
This combination of water, quiet and serene provides a place that people are rarely able to access in their mind. The benefits of a float tank has a wide variety from athletic use due to the Epsom salts, introspection for those working on personal development, stress reduction due to the quiet or just a break from the everyday overload of sensory. Floating is part therapy, part meditation, part transcendence, and all relaxation. Classically known as “sensory deprivation”, floatation therapy is suitable for professionals, athletes, meditators and everyone in between, including children and the elderly.
What to expect.
Each appointment is about 90 minutes for a 60 minute float due to the pre-shower, which is for removing oils from the skin and hair products, and the post shower to remove the salt solution from your skin and hair. The first float is a bit longer due to the tour and instructions. You are welcome to use the restroom before as well, this will ensure you are most comfortable. Water proof swimmers ear plugs are provided to help cancel out noise and keep the salt water out of your ears. Guests enter the tank at the foot end and then turn around and lie back into the water. The density of solution allows the guest to float.
