Floatation Therapy is designed to facilitate short-term sensory deprivation. The experience involves a light-less, soundproof tank filled with a high dosage (1,000lbs) of magnesium salt water (at body temperature), in which the body becomes completely buoyant. The skin absorbs magnesium from the salt, further assisting with relaxation and wellbeing.
The pioneer floatation tank was developed in 1950 by American Neurophysiologist Dr. John C. Lilly, whose goal was to create a sensory-deprived environment in which the body relaxed and brain activity increased. Modern floatation tanks still offer the same sensory experiences combined with high doses of salt-water which allows for total body relaxation and recovery.
CBS This Morning: How sensory deprivation and floating impacts the brain
Our Float Suites offer our clients an open peaceful space to escape the stressful and a hectic work-life. As you are soaking in warm water and pure Epsom salt, you will find that your body will physically float on top of the water, much like the famous salt lake in Jordan’s Dead Sea. In order to have a true sensory deprivation experience, we ensure that your room's air pressure and temperature are controlled to perfection, as well as controlling the room’s lighting and sound to the desired level. From top to bottom, your body will stay at rest and at ease. Meanwhile, your brain is able to relax and get into a meditative and tranquil state.
