Our brains and bodies are bombarded by our environment. Gravity, temperature, touch, light, smells and sounds constantly pull on our muscles, nervous system and senses. We get overwhelmed, and the stress can physically manifest into pain.
Floatation tanks are lightless, almost soundproof tanks of warm saltwater. They remove external physical stimuli, creating a state of “sensory” relaxation. Under these conditions your body has a chance to restore its natural powers of self regulation, while you simply lie back and relax.
The temperature inside the tank is kept at 93.5 degrees, the same temperature as your skin. As a result, the nerve endings which cover the surface of the skin no longer perceive any sense of separation between the skin and the silky mineral solution which surrounds it.
Free from all external stimulation, your body can achieve a state of relaxation which is deeper, purer and more beneficial than sleep. With no body to look after, your mind can attend to other business.
