Sensory deprivation tanks, or float tanks, are shallow pools of water in an enclosed, sound-proof space that allow users to spend time without hearing, touching, or seeing anything.
Multiple studies have shown sensory deprivation tanks aid in lowering stress and alleviating symptoms of and anxiety. They are now a part of overall health practices for people who are looking for a science-backed way to relieve anxiety while having fun.
In the 2018 study, 50 participants living with anxiety or stress reported a more serene and relaxed mood after floating, along with less stress, less tension, and fewer negative emotions.
Developed in the 1950s, researchers were interested in float tanks’ sensory deprivation’s effect on the brain, but it wasn’t until the 2000s that floating began to become popular among the general public.
Beyond helping ease stress and anxiety, float tanks may offer other benefits, including improved sleep, pain relief, and more.
Still not intrigued? Read this testimonial from one of our clients from a sister True REST Float Spa: “Ten years of chronic, constant pain and in one hour I finally got relief! Each time I’ve come back my pain levels are lower than the time previous and the relief lasts longer after each float. Every time I come out of the REST Pod my pain levels return to zero or near zero! WOW! Thank you True REST.”
