We will be closed until July 1st for remodeling. We'll be back on the 1st with 2 tank rooms!
What is an Isolation Tank?
The Isolation Tank is a large, enclosed, salt water bath designed to minimize sensory input to the brain. The water is ten inches deep with 800 lbs of epsom salt dissolved into it. This creates such buoyant water that anyone, no matter how dense or large they are, can float like a cork on top of the water. It is heated to 95.5 degrees which, is the same temperature as your skin. Since the user wears nothing into the tank, there is virtually no gravity and the temperature of the environment is the same as the body, the tank makes it so the body has nothing to feel. Also, the tank is completely dark, and silent so there is nothing to see, hear, smell or taste as well. Laying in such a senseless environment for even a short period of time will give the user a vacation from their body and their pain. This environment will also allow the user a unique and intimate experience with themselves.
Why Should You Float?
Flotation Therapy allows the body to maintain its internal homeostasis. When allowed to operate freely, the body is very effective at healing itself which, makes flotation therapy a great way to relieve stress and pain. Stress causes harm to our bodies by disrupting our natural biochemistry. When we are stressed our bodies produce harmful chemicals such as cortisol which, induce a fight-or-flight response and ultimately cause our bodies to wear out. Floatation Therapy has been shown to dramatically lower the stress hormone cortisol, which causes anxiety, suppresses the immune system and contributes to weight gain. Since the body's stress levels are so low in the tank, it gets a unique opportunity to heal itself in ways previously unthinkable. Flotation Therapy triggers endorphin release which allows the body to rid itself of pain, as well as enducing a state of profound euphoria. Its safe to say that once you exit the tank, you will feel as though you've been reborn!
