A little bit about Floating...
Floatation therapy is a simple way to achieve profound relaxation, meditation & wellness.
Also known as floating, sensory deprivation or R.E.S.T (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) Floating involves lying effortlessly on your back in a specially designed floatation tank. You float in 10 inches of water with over 1000lb of Epsom salt dissolved into it. The environment is controlled, so the water and air in the tank are heated to skin temperature (35.5°C) to be exact. At Float Planet our tanks are amongst the best in the world, specifically designed to block out all external distractions including sight, sound, tactile sensations and gravity.
