About Floatation The Benefits of Floatation What is Floatation?
An isolation tank is a lightless, soundproof tank inside which subjects float in salt water at skin temperature. They were first used by John C. Lilly [ 1 ] in 1954 to test the effects of sensory deprivation . Such tanks are now also used for meditation and relaxation and in alternative medicine . The isolation tank was originally called the sensory deprivation tank .
About fifteen years ago, when I was living in Madison, Wisconsin, a flotation tank center opened, right in my neighborhood. I had heard of flotation tanks, but had never actually experienced one. So, feeling curious, I walked over to check it out, one spring afternoon. It was a very small place: just a reception area and then a back room with two (or perhaps three) tanks, and a couple of showers. The tanks looked ominously like large metal coffins, which gave me a queasy feeling in my stomach. Still, I was up for trying it, at least once.
Isolation Tank info via Wikipedia It’s been a while since my last trip overseas and with the pressures of work and life at home getting to me I thought I’d give my mind a small holiday with a session in a float tank, also known as Isolation tanks or Sensory Deprivation tanks. The session is 1 hour long broken up into 3 phases; Preparation phase – 10 minutes of music to ease me into a relaxed state. Isolation phase – 40 minutes of silence. Wake phase – 5 minutes of music indicating the session is about to finish. First I remove all jewelery and strip down, have a quick shower and hop into the tank.
The first sound I heard when I walked into the waiting room was the soothing sound of pumps grinding away. The room was dimly lit and one sign said "please, your shoes" and another, "Please speak quietly." After they got the tank ready, a woman about my age took me to the isolation tank room and told what to do. She had to open a door and turn off a pump that ran a swimming pool filter that was connected to the tank so I could use the tank.

Imagine every single muscle in your body totally relaxing, to the extent of feeling completely weightless.
( The one who does not judge , by h. koppdelaney ) There are many forms of introspection and mental training that go by the name of “meditation,” and I have studied several over the years.
