Every year more and more people are swearing by sensory deprivation tanks, also known as isolation tanks and flotation tanks. These dark, soundproof tanks are used for restricted environmental stimulation therapy (REST), which can help with mental health issues, increase your immune system, and so much more.
How Does it Work?
A sensory deprivation tank is completely soundproof, and consists of just one foot of water and over 1,200 lbs of dissolved Epsom salt. Once in the tank, you'll be able to float effortlessly in 93.5-degree water. You'll feel weightless, deprived of your senses in a way that is safe, relaxing, and profound to experience.
While floating in the tank, you'll feel as though you're actually floating, unable to determine where the water stops and the air begins. This sensation of sensory deprivation can be incredibly healing for the body, both mentally and physically. This has begun to attract more people to the activity over the past decade, with studies continually revealing the health benefits of REST.
The Incredible Benefits
People use isolation tanks for both mental and physical wellness reasons. The experience, mentally, has similar benefits to regular meditation, making it a popular self-care activity. Commonly experienced effects include:
- Boost in creativity
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved sleep
- Stress relief
- Eases depression
The relaxing and meditative powers of these tanks pair nicely with their physical health benefits. Given that the process consists of floating in water and Epsom salt, there is absolutely zero pressure put onto any joints or muscles. The result? Your body can fully relax and release tension. Some of the physical benefits include:
- Muscle recovery
- Muscle relaxation
- Recovery from injury
- Increased immune health
- Eases chronic pain
