Unveiling the Remarkable Power of Float Therapy: A New Study Reinforces its Transformative Benefits

Unveiling the Remarkable Power of Float Therapy: A New Study Reinforces its Transformative Benefits


Hey there! We have some exciting news to share that will leave you amazed. Do you know how we’ve always talked about the incredible effects of float therapy in reducing stress, anxiety and boosting overall health? Well, hold on tight because a groundbreaking new study has just been published, further confirming the extraordinary capabilities of this therapeutic practice!

The Power of Float Therapy:

Float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation or isolation therapy, has long been celebrated for its profound impact on the mind and body. Picture this: immersing yourself in a serene, weightless environment, floating effortlessly on the surface of warm, buoyant water–the outside world fades away, stress melts, tension dissipates, and a profound sense of tranquility takes over. It’s an oasis of pure relaxation, where the relentless demands of life are momentarily suspended.

Evidence Builds:

This new study, another valuable addition to the growing body of research, delves deep into the remarkable benefits of float therapy. It shines a powerful spotlight on the therapeutic potential of this unique practice, reaffirming what we’ve known all along. Float therapy can reduce stress, alleviate anxiety, and promote overall well-being in ways that traditional treatments often struggle to achieve.

Study Method:

A recent scientific publication titled “Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST) in anxiety and depression: An experience sampling study” provides valuable insights into REST’s time course and effectiveness in alleviating anxiety and depression symptoms. The study conducted by McKenna M. Garland and colleagues aimed to investigate the duration and time course of the anxiolytic and antidepressant effects of REST. Seventy-five adults with anxiety and/or depression completed six sessions of REST, either in a pool-REST or chair-REST setting. The post-REST effects were assessed using experience sampling through a smartphone-based survey administered at multiple time points over a 48-hour period.

Key Findings:

The study revealed several significant findings regarding the effects of REST:

  • REST was associated with significant decreases in anxiety and depression symptoms compared to baseline levels.
  • These effects were observed immediately after the REST session and lasted for up to 48 hours.
  • REST also significantly increased feelings of serenity, contributing to an overall sense of well-being and relaxation.
  • Repeated exposure to REST sessions showed additive effects on lowering anxiety levels, with participants reporting lower baseline anxiety levels as they progressed through subsequent sessions


These findings have important implications for both the frequency and potential combination of REST with standard treatments for anxiety and depression. The study suggests that the anxiolytic and antidepressant effects of REST persist for at least 48 hours, guiding the scheduling of REST sessions. Moreover, the additive anxiolytic effects observed during the fifth and sixth sessions open avenues for exploring the impact of a larger number of REST sessions. The study’s findings also support the investigation of REST as an adjunctive treatment to enhance the effectiveness of existing therapies.













If you’re as intrigued as we are, we encourage you to delve into the study and explore the intricate details and scientific evidence that reinforce the remarkable effects of float therapy. It’s a fascinating journey that deepens our understanding of its profound impact on the mind and body. Let’s spread the joy and invite others to embark on their own path to well-being by sharing the study with friends, family, and anyone who could benefit from the wonders of float therapy.

Finding Peace: How to Use a Sensory Deprivation Tank for Meditation

Finding Peace: How to Use a Sensory Deprivation Tank for Meditation

sensory deprivation tank

Close your eyes and picture yourself floating quietly and gently down a river.

You find yourself lost in the darkness with only the sensation of being buoyant. Your thoughts start to slow down, and your pulse calms. Doesn’t that seem like a nice scenario?

It turns out you can achieve the same effect without needing a river or even being outside. Stepping into a sensory deprivation tank (commonly known as floating) has become a popular way for people to unwind after a long workday. It’s also increasingly popular as a way to promote meditation.

Here are some ways you can use float tanks to achieve greater mindfulness…

Just Breathe

When you’re in the tank, you can focus less on outside distractions and more on yourself including how you’re breathing. Chances are you’re doing it wrong, especially if you spend the bulk of your day sitting in a chair.

When you’re inside the tank, draw in deep breaths through the nose until your lungs can’t hold anymore. Hold the air for a moment before slowly releasing it through your nose or mouth. Try to get a steady rhythm going – there are no “max repetitions” for this meditative exercise.

Learning how to control your breathing and make it deeper can help you ward off stress more effectively, which you can apply outside the tank.

Let Your Mind Visualize

It may seem counterintuitive to “see” something when you’re in a dark tank, but visualization meditation is actually a thing.

There’s a couple of different ways you can approach this type of meditation while floating. One of them is more of an active method, sort of like the visualization used by top athletes to help them perform at their best.

You wilfully picture a scene and play it out in your head. For example, if you have an important presentation to give the next day, you can visualize the people that might be in the room and confidently pitching to them.

This is sometimes referred to as “lucid dreaming.”

The other is more of a by-product of meditation. Instead of actively picturing a scene or a person, you let go and let your mind visualize whatever it wants. Don’t judge the thoughts that enter your brain, just let them flow.

Some people even report seeing objects and colors while in the tank (hallucinations), so just let them be and enjoy the show.

Increase Body Connection

During your busy days, you probably don’t check into how tense various muscles are in your body until one of them cramps up.

However, the float tank is the perfect place to correct this. Using integrative body-mind training while floating can give you a better sense of overall well-being.

But how do you achieve it? Using deep breathing, shift your mind to a specific part of your body during each breath. For example, check-in with your calves, your arms, your neck. Put all of your attention to those body parts one at a time to determine how they feel.

Once you’ve focused on the specific body part, let the muscle tension melt away as you slowly exhale. You may find some places in your body are holding more stress, so focus on them more during the meditative exercise.

Calm Your Thoughts

Shamatha meditation is a way to achieve calmer thoughts and emotions, and the sensory deprivation tank is an ideal way to achieve this.

While there are different postures for practicing this type of meditation, laying down is an effective one. It involves allowing yourself to acknowledge all of the thoughts in your head and realize that it’s normal to have them.

With practice, you start to judge your thoughts less and instead just let them be. That can help you focus less on negative outcomes or having thoughts that don’t contribute to the greater goal.

Gain Greater Insight

As you learn to calm your thoughts using the previous meditation method in the tank, you can turn your attention to vipashyana, also known as insight meditation.

The purpose of this type of meditation is to separate your delusional beliefs from reality by examining them in your mind. It helps you see yourself and others in their true light.

That can mean you realize what you thought was a threat may be harmless upon reflection. However, this insight can also help you identify things in your life that demand more attention than you’re giving them.

Focus on Love For Yourself and Others

There’s a form of meditation that’s called “loving-kindness,” or LKM, and it’s particularly easy to practice when you’re alone with your thoughts in a float tank as silence helps.

During this type of meditation, you conjure feelings of love and forgiveness towards yourself and other people in your life. In order to achieve it, you start by imagine experiencing a high level of physical and mental wellness (even if you don’t feel that way entering the tank.) However, after a few visits, you may find your natural well-being increases, as float therapy has some health benefits.

You can even repeat some positive messages about yourself in your head or out loud (don’t worry, chances are no one will hear you because the tanks are soundproof.) Whenever you feel your thoughts drifting back to something negative, return to the feelings of love and let them wrap around you.

If you feel sufficiently self-loved, then move your attention to others. It’s best to focus on yourself for the first few sessions.

Enhance Meditation In a Sensory Deprivation Tank

The float tank can help you enhance the meditation experience. The tanks are ideal because they block outside distractions and let you focus on your own breathing and thoughts.

With a bit of practice, you might find you have greater compassion for yourself and others, while also dealing with everyday stress more effectively.

Something in the Air: What to Expect During Salt Cave Therapy

Something in the Air: What to Expect During Salt Cave Therapy

salt cave therapy

The idea of sitting in a cave made of salt might sound primitive. But this treatment practice, called halotherapy, is becoming more and more popular in spas and wellness centers around the US.

Halotherapy, which is also known as salt cave therapy, involves sitting quietly inside one of these caves while a device called a halogenerator pumps salt-infused air into the room. Halotherapy has been popular in Eastern Europe for centuries, and promises a range of physical and mental health benefits.

Are you interested in trying halotherapy for yourself? Read on to find out what to expect during your first salt room therapy experience.

Your Guide to Salt Cave Therapy

Halotherapy is relatively new in the US but it’s fast becoming a popular treatment for people looking to reap its many health benefits. But what should you expect from the treatment? And what is a salt cave like? Keep reading to find out more:

What is a Salt Cave?

While salt caves can vary, in most cases, the walls are made of pink Himalayan salt bricks, while the ground is covered with loose pink Himalayan salt rocks.

Salt caves often include salt rock lights or lamps which give the atmosphere a subdued and peaceful glow. Aside from this light, salt caves are normally dark so as to provide a relaxing experience. Inside the salt cave, the air is dry and cool, with a temperature set to around 68°F or lower.

Although the concept of a cave made of salt might sound intimidating, the result is a cozy, spa-like environment  that’s perfect for unwinding and disconnecting.

Inside the Salt Cave

Before you enter the salt cave you’ll most likely have to remove your shoes, just as you would before using other spa facilities. But, even if they don’t insist you go in barefoot, we’d recommend it as the sensation of the salt rocks beneath your bare feet is pleasant and invigorating.

It’s also common to have to leave your electronic devices behind before you go into a salt cave. This is a great opportunity for a mini digital detox and ensures that you’re not distracted during your salt cave treatment.

Inside the salt cave, you will find several chairs around the space which should be comfortable and relaxing to recline in during your salt cave experience. Or, if you prefer, you may be able to sit or lie on the salt rock floor. Due to the cool temperature of the room, centers often provide blankets for clients to ensure they are comfortable and warm despite the cool ambient temperature.

During the treatment, most people sit quietly and relax or meditate while breathing in the salt-infused air. There may be a peaceful soundtrack playing in the background, much like the soft music or sounds of natures you’d hear during a massage or spa treatment.

Your Salt Cave Experience

With no technology, peaceful music playing, and low lights, you’re sure to experience total relaxation during salt room therapy. The lack of distractions will allow you to take time for yourself and clear your head. Even if you’re not into meditation, the experience will give you the chance to disconnect and enjoy your own kind of meditation.

Spa treatments such as steam rooms and traditional saunas can sometimes feel suffocating if you’re in them for too long. In contrast, the cool ambient temperature of a salt cave ensures you’ll be able to breathe easily for the length of the treatment. That said, you may perspire during salt room therapy. This is because of the salt drawing out impurities in your body, which is a normal reaction during the detoxification process.

With time to reflect on your breathing and the position of your body, you should feel a release of tension in your neck, shoulders, and back. Your mind will also start to clear thanks to the serenity of the cave experience.

Most people report at least subtle effects like these from their first salt room session. But, as with most treatments and wellness activities, you’ll see more benefits and greater changes with regular salt room sessions.

Salt Therapy Benefits

The many salt room benefits are not surprising when you consider that salt is antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory. But what are these salt therapy benefits exactly?

As you breathe, your airways absorb minerals such as iron, potassium, and calcium in the salt particles. The salt inside the cave draws out irritants such as toxins and allergens from your respiratory system. This reduces inflammation and breaks down mucus, clearing your airways. As a result, salt cave treatments can help with conditions such as asthma and bronchitis, as well as the common cold.

The salt particles used in halotherapy also have a similar effect on your skin. The salt absorbs impurities and bacteria present on the skin, helping to reduce many skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis. Halotherapy also helps relieve stress, allergies, respiratory infections, hangovers, and high blood pressure.

Salt also produces negative ions. When your body comes into contact with the negatively-charged salt particles in the cave’s atmosphere, it releases more serotonin, one of the ‘feel-good’ chemicals behind feelings of happiness. This chemical reaction can help improve sleep quality and reduce anxiety and stress.

What to Expect During Halotherapy

With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why halotherapy has been popular in Eastern Europe for hundreds of years.

And, while it may seem unconventional, there’s no denying that taking time out of your busy schedule to clear your mind and your airways sounds like the perfect antidote to modern life.

Your First Float: How to Prepare Yourself for Your First Float Tank Therapy Session

Your First Float: How to Prepare Yourself for Your First Float Tank Therapy Session

float tank

According to studies, the average adult in the US checks their phone every 12 minutes.

In a world of always-on connections and instant access, it’s hard to let go of the urge to pick up our phones. One of the best ways to escape from the pressures of modern life (and modern tech) is through a float tank therapy session.

Float tank therapy removes all distractions – even your clothes! With nothing else to distract your attention, you can focus on your own thoughts in the most comfortable and relaxing situation you’ve been in since you were born.

If you’re thinking about trying out float tank therapy, here are a few tips to help you to prepare.

Don’t Sweat It

A float tank is meant to help you to escape some of the worries of the real world. The last thing you want to do is add to them by worrying about the float tank experience itself.

So try to not get too bogged down in thinking about what it will be like, or worrying unnecessarily about what will happen during your experience. Instead, approach it with an open mind; don’t have any preconceptions but instead, just let the experience happen.

Dare to Bare

You’ll get the most out your experience if you remove as many distractions as possible.

Even the feel of a swimsuit against your skin can distract you from your contemplation. It’s recommended that you enjoy the float tank in your birthday suit.

You’ll be in your own private tank or room, but if you’re still feeling awkward about getting naked, try walking around the house in the buff before your appointment to get used to the sensation.

Analyze Your Fears

Many people put off trying a float tank because they’re scared that they’ll feel claustrophobic, or are worried that they won’t be able to float.

If this applies to you, then sit down and have a good think about exactly what is that you fear. If claustrophobia is a concern for example, then try to think about what you can do if those feelings do arise. Take a good look at how large your tank actually is before you enter, and remember that image when you’re inside.

If you confront your fears in advance, you are far less likely to be put off by them.

Don’t Eat Too Much

It’s not recommended to have a heavy meal before your session, as you’ll spend most of your time listening to your body digesting!

By the same token, don’t starve yourself beforehand either as a rumbling stomach can be equally offputting. Try having a light meal well before your appointment so that your stomach will be as relaxed as you are.

Definitely Don’t Drink Too Much!

Sessions in the float tank can last an hour or even longer.

If you drink too much before you come, you may find yourself only being able to think about one thing during your session: your bladder.

Try to avoid caffeine before your session too. You don’t want to go into the float tank feeling totally buzzed on a double espresso. Caffeine is also a diuretic that will increase your chances of needing to urinate.

Expect a Settling In Period

The first time you try a float tank, expect it to feel a little odd.

This is like no experience you’ve ever had before – other than being in the womb. It’s natural that to start with things may feel a little peculiar, but you’ll soon find that you relax and settle into the process.

Take the time to get used to the sensations and the rest of your session will be much more relaxed.

Be Prepared for Your Body to Tense Up

You might expect that your mind that would the part of your body that is most impacted by the experience, but many people often find that their muscles will also tense up at first.

This is perfectly natural. Our bodies are not used to being so perfectly supported. Some muscles that are almost always in tension such as our back and neck muscles can take a while to get used to the fact that they don’t need to do any work.

Once your body becomes accustomed to the sensation, you should find your entire body feels as relaxed as it can be.

Allow Time After Your Float

Make sure that you build in plenty of time after your session. The last thing you want is to have to rush off to an appointment straight after you climb out of the tank.

To get the full benefit of your float tank therapy, you should take plenty of time to enjoy the relaxed state that you will find yourself in after the session. Bring a book or a magazine, or just lie back and relax.

The only thing you should need to worry about after your session is when you can book the next one!

Float Therapy: 5 Health Benefits Of Isolation

Float Therapy: 5 Health Benefits Of Isolation

Float therapy

Life can be stressful; You are exposed to so many factors that may pose a risk to your health on a daily basis. If you are feeling overwhelmed by stress at work, are suffering with anxiety, or are even having trouble sleeping, float therapy can help treat these conditions, and many more, by inducing a deep state of relaxation within the participant.

By 2015, The United States was home to more than 300 float centers. Floatation therapy offers many health benefits and the potential to ease, treat, and prevent many health conditions.

Here are five key benefits of isolation, or float therapy:

1. Reduction of Stress

Isolation therapy has been scientifically proven to reduce the level of stress in the body. Float therapy is able to reduce the level of the stress hormone cortisol produced by the body.

Floating also reduces the level of stress in the body by calming the senses associated with sight, sound, and touch. The float tanks and chambers are specially designed to reduce the input of sensory stimuli towards the patient from the external environment. This newly calm surrounding serves to ease the stresses of the mind and body which are often overstimulated through work, school, and other daily engagements.

Time spent in a float therapy chamber has been scientifically proven to reduce anxiety and stress levels for a duration of more than four months after 12 sessions. The reduction of stress through isolation therapy is a great option to relax and restore the body and mind while remaining non-invasive and drug-free.

2. Improved Quality of Sleep

Isolation has been proven to increase the quality and duration of sleep of float therapy participants. The float chambers are composed of about a foot of water and over 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt, allowing patients to become fully buoyant over the density of the water, just like the Dead Sea. This feeling of being weightless and free of mental or physical stimulation allows the floater to enter a meditative state of relaxation. This state of being within a zero gravity environment instantly, and over time, allows participants to sleep better and deeper.

The water inside the float tank is kept at the same temperature of the participant’s internal body temperature. The controlled, stable temperature of the environment aids in entering a meditative state. The combination of a controlled environment free of sound and gravitational pressure on the body relaxes all the body’s muscles, making it easier for one to release into the moment and sleep better.

Isolation therapy has been proven to improve sleep and induce a deeper sleep cycle due to its difference from standard bed rest. Normal bed rest requires one to change and adjust the body’s position several times per night, making it more difficult to sleep. Through the process of floatation therapy, the body is free from any and all pressure from the environment, eliminating the tendency to toss and turn and creating a space for full and complete rest.

Sleep quality is also enhanced because of the posture of the body during isolation therapy. The supine position, which is normally used during float therapy relaxes the postural muscles and aids in creating a natural alignment in the spine, free of bodily weight or pressure.

3. Float Therapy Improves Health

Isolation therapy has many health benefits and has been scientifically proven to boost the body’s immune system.

Isolation therapy induces a deep meditative state in the mind, allowing the mind to let go and slow down.  Approximately 90% of the brain’s total workload is reduced during float therapy. This process creates an opportunity for the body to rejuvenate and heal.

Floating in darkness also creates a balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. This action boosts clarity, creativity, and is also associated with higher levels of optimism.

The magnesium from the salty water is absorbed through the skin. The intake of magnesium through the skin’s pores aids in balancing and correcting magnesium deficiencies found in many patients.

The health benefits of magnesium include:

• Proper transmission of impulses in the body
• Easier and more efficient metabolic functions
• Stronger and healthier bone formation
• Prevention and treatment of bone related dis-eases, such as osteoporosis
• Lower risk of diabetes due to the function of breaking down carbohydrates in the body
• Better muscle health

The key to a healthy body is a healthy mind: Float therapy is a great way to start initiating your body’s health by nourishing your mental well-being.

4. Treatment of Muscle Pain

Isolation therapy has gained a lot of attention from athletes because it helps in healing muscle pain. The float chamber relaxes every muscle in each and every person’s body due to the zero gravity effect created by density of the salt enriched water. Being completely weightless and free of tension allows the body to regenerate and heal itself, thus relieving muscle pain.

The high concentration of magnesium in the float tanks also helps in relieving muscle pain and health. This is because it’s absorbed into the body through the skin’s pores, allowing for easier and more efficient absorption of calcium through concentrated magnesium intake.

The temperature of the water also improves muscle health as no energy is lost in maintaining the body’s normal temperature. Hence, making it easy for muscles to heal and recover relatively faster than in standard conditions.

5. Treatment of Psychological Conditions

Float therapy treats various psychological conditions such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression. By reducing the body’s movement and isolating the senses from external stimuli, isolation therapy allows the mind to enter into a deep meditative state. This boosts the healing process of various psychological conditions.

Floatation therapy is the most effective form of muscle and mind relaxation therapy there is today, all thanks to the extreme density of the water inside the float chamber, allowing complete mental and physical release and restoration. This induced naturally induced state of deep meditation assists the body in reducing its stress hormone, cortisol. This natural detox aids in successfully treating patients suffering from mental disorders including anxiety, depression, burn-out, and PTSD.

The reduction in the brains’ activity during isolation therapy allows the body to refresh and reboot itself. This allows one to feel relieved and even more at peace, alleviating any sad or draining feelings which are often associated with mental disorders such as depression. Patients suffering from drug addiction can also be treated using float therapy.

Getting a Float Therapy Session

Float therapy sessions are a chance to escape from the world by retreating into the inner parts of your subconscious. Some mild side-effects may be experienced, such as a slight headache due to the detoxification catalyzed by the Epsom salt dissolved in the water, and an overwhelming feeling of relaxation and weightlessness.

Claustrophobia is a common concern of people interested in float therapy. Luckily, float tanks range in size, some even being spacious enough for two floaters. Afraid of the dark? Not to worry: most float chambers include a dim spa light built into the structure. Small, buoyant lights are also available to accommodate each participant’s concern.

The health benefits of float therapy have been scientifically proven. So book an appointment, lay back, relax, and enjoy your post-float glow.

Floatation Therapy – RELAX, HEAL AND UNWIND

Floatation Therapy – RELAX, HEAL AND UNWIND

Have you always searched for a therapy that unwinds, relaxes, and heals at the same time?

Look no further than Flotation Therapy, also referred to as sensory deprivation.

Spending 60 minutes floating will help you unwind, relax, and heal.


How it works

It is quite simple, you just float. The 1700 pounds of epsom salt hold you up and won’t let you down. The epsom salt contains high levels of magnesium, which has been shown to be a catalyst for relaxation. As you float, your sense of sight, sound, and feeling disappears and you are able to focus inward. The magnesium-saturated water and air temperatures are carefully controlled to match the surface of the skin, allowing boundaries to fade. All this allows for deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and relief.

Why choose flotation therapy?

Float therapy is appealing because you only need 60 minutes to unburden yourself and heal. So why should you consider flotation therapy? Let’s look at some of the amazing benefits.

  • Improves sleep and other sleep-related issues.

  • Research supports the use of flotation therapy for specific neurological and inflammatory conditions including but not limited to: Multiple Sclerosis (MS), memory disorders, and migraines.
  • Chronic pain conditions have been shown to be alleviated as well; injury, chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, mitochondrial disorders, osteoarthritis, pinched nerve, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and many more.
  • Floating supplies magnesium (an essential mineral required for many processes) to the body.
  • It improves skin health by exfoliating, unclogging pores, reducing blackheads, clearing breakouts, as well as helping with skin issues like rosacea and eczema.
  • Restores healthier hair and creates more volume and thicker hair appearance. Flotation leaves hair shiny and beautiful.
