The science of floating has been around since the early 1950’s, originally conceived during the early work of Dr. John Lilly, a neurophysiologist and psychoanalyst.
The benefits of sensory deprivation (achieved by floating) are also very real, backed by countless studies and widely accepted by the scientific and medical communities. Recent studies published by Dr Justin Feinstein of the Laureate Institute for Brain Research identify that the inward sensory enhancement floating provides is where many of the benefits are generated.

Muscle tension reduces significantly when you float, reducing pain, increasing mobility and enabling faster recovery.
An hour in a float tank promotes a reduction in the release of the stress hormone cortisol and promotes the release of the feel-good neurotransmitters and endorphins. Recent research confirms floatation therapy can reduce anxiety.
Floating reduces heart rate and blood pressure dilates blood vessels and improves circulation. Floatation therapy is used by the US Army to restore balance to the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems in soldiers.

Sensory Deprivation
The definition of Sensory Deprivation, from Wikipedia, states that the perceptual isolation is the deliberate reduction or removal of stimuli from one or more of the senses.
What is Floating?
Floating is a treatment system based on the reduction of external sensory stimulation. It promotes meditation, and reduces stress. It is clinically proven to assist a number of physical and mental ailments.

Make it your own
Floating is personal and no two floats are the same. One thing is certain you can always find something positive from every float. You will have amazing floats, but there is no such thing as a bad float.
What to expect
Expect to relax! It is common to experience increased brain activity at the start of the float. This can last 10 minutes or so but will pass. Ultimately floaters find themselves drifting off to be woken by the music acknowledging the end of the session and wondering where the time has gone.
