Most people would consider me a very grounded person, as do I. I was not completely convinced that I could gain much from a float, but would never know without trying.
I was surprised how effortless it was to float. Being inside of a dark tank, my natural instinct was to close my eyes. I found that I was thinking more than I wanted to, and once I opened them I was able to absorb the experience. Before I knew it, I did not notice that my arms and legs existed, and my only feeling was the beat of my heart. I was incredibly relaxed.
After my float I proceeded to continue on with my busy plans for the day. What I found very interesting was even though my brain had its "to do" list, my body was still in its relaxed state. It was as if it was asking my brain " Didn't you learn anything from your floating experience?"
I thoroughly enjoyed my first 60 minute session. Being sensually deprived was a new experience for me. Having nothing but my thoughts for those 60 minutes made me realize how connected I am to technology; iPhone, emails, etc. This was a sad realization for me. Float tanks is about the best tool that I have found to meditate and go deep within yourself. The peace and tranquility that I found when being there was fascinating. I can't wait to do it again. - Irvine, CA
The floating experience is like non other. It is a place for relaxation, meditation or simply decompression. It is what ever you make of it. Each time I enter the float tank my number one goal is simply to let go. It is a place that I can be with myself without having to be chased by the seemingly urgent and mostly unimportant pressures of life. For 90 minutes I quiet myself and just “be.” For 90 minutes I re-engage with my own existence and am re-energized to attack the remainder of my day. - Huntington Beach, CA
