Salt Water Floatation

(sensory deprivation)

Drift away into total relaxation as you float effortlessly atop 1500 pounds of Epsom Salt in our state of the art Float Lab tank.

The float tank is a perfect tool to assist you in reaching deep states of relaxation. Physically, the Epsom Salt helps to pull tension out of tired, aching or over worked muscles. Mentally, the lack of stimulation and the warm gentle support of the water coaxes you into slowly unwinding, letting go and enjoying the time to simply be.

Everything you need will be provided for you including a float specialist who will walk you through the entire process, answer any questions you may have and make sure you are comfortable and confident before your float.

Afterward, we invite you to take your time integrating and reflecting on your float experience in front of our serene fish tank. You will be served water or tea and are welcome to browse our collection of books.

I immediately felt cradled. It was powerful to feel my body rise to the surface with no effort at all. Being held with such gentleness was for me a spiritual experience. I could not help but think I was connected to this darkness around me and within me and the light I knew that was beyond the tank. It helped me to transition with my challenges, face my fears, release those things that had entangled me and helped me to embrace the unknown, along with pure love and acceptance of where I am now.

Floating Benefits

 

Supported and held by a half TON of Epsom salts, you’ll effortlessly connect with your body’s natural deep relaxation response. Skin temperature water and fresh oxygen makes our state-of-the-art float chamber an ideal environment to safely explore the connection between your mind and body. People who float regularly report a deeper understanding and the ability to transform stressful patterns, habits and beliefs into new strategies for success and happiness. Current university research shows that floatation strengthens the immune system by countering the fight or flight reaction in the body, triggers the parasympathetic (relaxation) response.

The History of Floating

Salt Water Floatation is an ancient practice. From the sea side baths of the Romans to the travelers floating in the Dead Sea, the healing benefits of floating are well known.  The "sensory deprivation" float tank takes this practice one step further. In the tank you feel weightless, the water is about the same temperature as your skin. The tank is dark and you wear earplugs so that the entire world is blocked out and your mind can rest.

Originally created by John C. Lilly in 1954, the float tank was designed as an experiment to discover if consciousness remained after all outside distractions were removed. "It was argued that if all stimuli are cut off to the brain then the brain would go to sleep. Lilly decided to test this hypothesis and, with this in mind, created an environment which totally isolated an individual from external stimulation. From here, he studied the origin of consciousness and its relation to the brain."

In the mind, there are no limits...
what the network believes to be true, either is true or becomes true
— John C. Lilly, The Human Biocomputer (1974)

The floatation tank pictured below (right) was a gift from John C. Lilly to Timothy Leary. It was sent to ease Leary's end of life suffering. The tank sold on Ebay in May of 2012 for $6,700, with all proceeds benefitting MAPS research.

We have come a long way from Leary's back yard tank. Our state of the art system has high ceilings and openness that allows you to fully relax with a state of the art filtration system and fresh air circulation.
