You find yourself laying on your back, suspended in absolute darkness and floating in water that is the exact same temperature as your body. After a while your brain doesn’t register that you’re in...anything. You’re floating because the water has been loaded with 1000 pounds of epsom salts. Conclusion: you’re in a Jonathan Glazer film.
Let’s back that azz up a bit.
Dr. John C. Lilly was an inventor, American physician, neuroscientist, and psychonaut who created the isolation tank back in 1954.
He researched the nature of consciousness, using mainly isolation tanks, dolphin communication, and psychedelic drugs---sometimes in combination with each other. Then hailed as “hippie bullshit”, today’s celebs have been on it for years. But what do they know? Everything. They always know every damn thing.
Back to the tank. As muscle tension fades away, you find yourself suspended like a naked astronaut (since those are a thing). Floating causes a release of neck tension and decompression of the spine that can lead to a euphoric and deeply meditative state. Just fantastic.
Now you can start thinking about the good stuff. You ask yourself introspective questions like, “What am I doing with my life?”, “What am I really good at?” and “When is the new season of House Of Cards coming back on?”.
After what can seem like a lifetime or just nano-seconds of these complex thoughts, none of it matters anymore and you find yourself in a deeply relaxed state. Now you’re not sure where your body starts and ends. Before you know it, the pod is opening back up and you feel like you just got the best sleep of your life.
Text me if you’d like me to book an appointment for you. Sorry if that got a bit HEADY.
