What is a Float Tank?
Worldwide locations. Floatation International. What to Know Before Purchasing a Floatation System First, the terminology.
Floatation tanks (spelled flotation in many parts of the world), isolation tanks, float pods and sensory deprivation tanks all refer to the same thing: a large vessel containing a shallow pool of water which is super-saturated with Epsom salts, making you float. Float tanks are specifically designed to help people relax, de-stress and explore their inner selves. A floatation therapy system can be open or enclosed, though traditionally the term “float tank” refers to a cocoon-like device with a lid, hatch or door. These days, the term is generic and also refers to systems which are large rooms or walk-in cabins, systems which have no walls at all (such as step-in pools or baths) and other innovative designs.
