What is Float Tank Therapy?
Flotation tank therapy, also known as sensory deprivation therapy, involves laying in a tank filled with Epsom salt and water that is heated to the skin’s temperature. The high salt concentration in the tank makes it easier for you to float on your back. Our salt tank therapy is in a 6.5ftx9.5ft room vs a standard room for a more comfortable experience, particularly for those with claustrophobia.
Besides being filled with salt water, the tank is usually soundproof and dark to provide a sensory deprivation experience. This encourages a quiet, meditative state. The salt also helps with stress relief and aches and pains.
The tank is also quite large so that you can stretch out without touching any of the walls of the tank.
The procedure for float tank therapy is pretty simple. It starts by arriving at the clinic. The staff will ask you to remove all your clothing and jewelry. You’ll shower before entering the tank and then a staff member will help you into the tank.
You simply need to lie down and the water will do the work to help you float. Music may play or it may be completely silent. Sessions typically last an hour and when you’re done, you’ll get out of the tank, shower, dress, and then be on your way.
To prepare for your session, you’ll want to eat beforehand so your stomach doesn’t growl while in the tank. You’ll also want to avoid caffeine at least four hours before.
You’ll also want to avoid shaving or waxing before a session as the salt could irritate your skin.
Additionally, if you’re menstruating, you’ll want to reschedule your session.
After flotation tank therapy, you’ll shower, but beyond that, you can go back to your daily routine. There is no downtime or recovery necessary.
The feeling of weightlessness that comes with floating is hard to achieve with any other form of therapy or device. You get a sense of detachment from the world which can help you destress and achieve a sense of calm.
It has been shown to lead to side effects like hallucination and enhanced creativity but everyone’s experience is different.
There are a number of different benefits of float tank therapy. The main benefits include easing anxiety and stress and helping with muscle tension but it can also do much more than that.
Some of the other benefits of float tank therapy include:
Float tank therapy can help with your sleep. A 2016 study found that it can have significant benefits for people who have difficulty sleeping. Because it can help with anxiety and anxiety can often lead to poor sleep, it takes care of two issues at once.
Time in a float tank can also help with chronic pain from aching muscles. The overall feeling of relaxation you get from the therapy can soothe tense muscles and in turn, relieve pain.
Stress can also cause pain and with the stress relief you get from being in the tank, you can relieve your pain and stress at the same time.
But this isn’t just limited to pains in the body. It can work for migraines as well. This is especially the case if your migraines are triggered by stress.
Because Epsom salt is high in magnesium, it can help remove harmful substances from your body such as free radicals. Free radicals are often associated with the development of cancers and autoimmune disorders.
