Are float tanks actually effective? YES!

ROAD TEST

This week Jonah tries … a float session

The lowdown I’ll let Jonah explain: “I am floating in a sensory deprivation tank aptly named Apollo – enclosed in pitch blackness, it feels like being on a journey through space.

The tank’s Epsom salts water is heated to body temperature and feels smooth on my skin; my senses are dissolving around me and my mind is escaping the hectic urban environment. I feel like a fish effortlessly gliding through the ocean, trying to figure out which way the currents are sending me. It’s very therapeutic.”

Downtime Some 60, 90 or 120 fluid minutes.

Pain factor “None. It’s a pleasurable out-of-body experience.”

Results “For the rest of the day, my mind and body are at ease and I have a fresh perspective on my surroundings. For me, this was a great mental and physical timeout and definitely an experience to be enjoyed in the buff.”
