Float Tanks offer a number of health benefits for you. It can improve your physical, mental and emotional state. If you are seeking a solution for dealing with stress, anxiety, or burnout, this relaxation therapy is for you.

I don’t know about you, and I am a little embarrassed to admit this, but sometimes it scares me how much I truly just do not like being alone with my thoughts.

When life goes quiet, my instinct is to grab my phone, check through emails, put on a meditation, read, write, do something to keep my mind busy!

The problem is the world of constant distraction is fairly recent and your brain needs time to go blank, detox, and reset.

How can you do it?

Enter Float Tanks

I can honestly say that floating has changed my life.

Floating is my reset button!

Anytime I feel like this I float:

  1. When I am overworked
  2. Not sleeping well
  3. Need a creativity boost
  4. Need to solve a problem
  5. Feel depressed
  6. Need a break
  7. Need a recovery day
  8. Want to go hard in the paint

What Is Floating?

Float tanks are used to deprive the body of all sensory input.

Floatation devices are filled up with about 12 inches of super salty water (~1400 lbs) so you float to the top of the water.

Sight – there is no light in the tank

Touch – the water is the same temp as your skin receptors

Sound – there is no sound and you wear earplugs

Taste – your face is above water so you don’t taste the salt

Smell – no smell to the tank

​You can spend anywhere from 30-90 minutes or longer in the float tank to reap the benefits of floating.
