Flotation therapy is therapy that is undertaken by floating in a warm salt water in a float tank.
The tank is a little larger around than a twin sized bed and chest high. It contains 10" of water to which 800lbs of epsom salt has been added, that when you get in and lie on your back, you are pushed to the surface so you float like a cork, weightless as an astronaut in space. There is a lightweight door that you can leave open, or if you want to get rid of the distractions of noise and light you can close the door.
By suspending in weightlessness and suppressing the senses, the client can reach an ultra relaxing and meditative state, which can lead to many psychological and physiological benefits. Studies has shown positive outcomes in one's quality of life.
Clients who suffer from stress related illnesses can benefit from a therapy that can not only provide quality relaxation from stress, but experience a meditative moment that can influence a revived awareness.
