The #1 Thing Professional Athletes Do To Recover From Workouts

Well, it’s about time for the Super Bowl! All year these professional athletes have been training for this game.  

One of the most important parts of being an athlete, is being able to efficiently recover from workouts to ensure you are 100% ready to go for every drill, practice and game.

Even if you’re not a professional athlete, there is a lot we can learn from these players in terms of physical fitness + recovery.

So, how do these players avoid injury and recovery from constant physical work?

For years there have been athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches and doctors to help keep these athletes in tip-top shape, prevent injury and ensure they are recovering from workouts.

But over the past few years, players have gotten more interested in alternative forms of recovery. This includes things like saunas, NormaTec, red light therapy, and even float tanks.

Float tanks, or sensory deprivation therapy, is basically when you lie in a giant tub of skin-temperature, over-saturated epsom salt water. These tanks use Epsom Salt which also helps with muscle recovery and body relaxation.

The reason so many athletes are turning to floating is because it not only has physical benefits, but also helps with mental clarity, focus and emotional balance, creating a solid player both physically and mentally.

Why should athletes float?

  1. Improves Athletic Performance Through Visualization

    A study by Wagaman, et al. found that amongst college basketball players, athletes that floated performed better than those who didn’t, based off judges opinions. This is because sensory deprivation therapy (or float tank therapy) enhances mental imagery. So combining visualization tactics outside of the tank, then allowing players to float, improves their visualization practices and shows on the court.

  2. Mental Clarity + Composure  

    “The amygdala is very reactive to things coming in from the outside—somebody looks at you funny, or you hear a sound that’s scary,” says psychiatrist Martin Paulus, president and scientific director also at the Laureate Institute. “That kind of stress is good when the guy looking at you is about to steal your wallet, but elsewhere it’s counterproductive” (Vigneron).

    Paulus theorizes this reactivity of the amygdala is a cause of stress and can be reduced through floating. To learn more about how floating can ipmact stress + anxiety, click here.

    Looking further into it, Dr. Paulus believes that athletes who float have a less reactive amygdala allowing them to think clearer and stay more composed during high-intensity activity (Vigneron).  

  3. Reduces Muscle Soreness

    According to the Epsom Salt Council, there are numerous studies showing epsom salt as an effective method for treating muscle soreness. Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate — a mineral found in abundance in our body. Magnesium sulfate flushes lactic acid out of the muscles that build up during vigorous exercise. This helps relax skeletal muscles and improve muscle recovery.

7 Reasons To Make Floating A Regular Part Of Your Wellness Routine In 2019

It’s that time of year again, when we start reflecting on the past and setting intentions for the future. It can be so exciting to make future plans, but it can also get overwhelming thinking of everything you want to accomplish. How will you be able to get it all done? What if there was one thing you could do that will help you grow physically, mentally and spiritually?

Well, good news. Floating in a sensory deprivation tank has physical, mental, and spiritual benefits. I think we hit the trifecta!

Here are 7 reasons why floating should be a regular part your wellness routine for 2019:

Results For Body + Mind + Spirit

As mentioned earlier, floating can help your improve mentally, physically, and spiritually. Mentally, floating is a great stress reducer, can help calm a monkey mind, and can boost your creativity. Physically, the epsom salt in a float tank helps relax muscles, softens hair + skin, and helps your body detox. Spiritually, floating is one of the best tools for self-development and exploring other levels of consciousness, because when in a sensory deprivation tank there are really no distractions - just time to be alone with yourself.  

Sleep Better

Even after just one float session, your mind and body will be calmed. The epsom salt in float tanks relaxes muscles and releases tension being stored in your body. This leaves you physically more relaxed. Your cortisol levels, which is your stress hormone, are also reduced from floating (Turner and Fine). In fact, one study done found that 1 hour in a float tank reduces your cortisol levels the same amount that sleeping four hours would (Feinstein et al. 2018).  

If you want to read more about the scientific benefits of floating, CLICK HERE.

Reduce Stress + Put Your Mind At Ease

As mentioned above, floating helps lower cortisol levels (Turner and Fine). Cortisol is your stress response hormone, and when it is too high for too long, you begin to feel overwhelmed or even anxious. Floating helps lower that, helping you to physiologically reduce stress and feel more calm.

Secondly, floating is a great place to problem solve. Because there are no distractions you can easily let your mind run. And floating boost creativity (Norlander et al), so allowing yourself to problems solve in a tank can lead to some creative solutions. Giving yourself that free time to think, to problem solve, to let go, will help put your mind at ease after a float.   


The magnesium in epsom salt is crucial for detoxification. Along with the new celery juice trend, floating in a tank full of epsom salt can help your body detox from various toxic substances and heavy metals (Segura, Gabriela). Magnesium assists in detox by stimulating cell activity to release toxins into the bloodstream so they can be removed.

Take A Break From Technology

It’s no secret that we are surrounded by technology and mass advertising. Whether it’s from your cell phone, television, laptop, social media, etc., we are constantly distracted and consumed by what’s going on around us. All of these messages we receive can lead to comparison, to feelings of unworthiness, and can decrease our focus, creativity and individuality.

When in a float tank, you have no outside stimulus. That means no advertisements, no technology, and nothing to distract you. It is the most efficient way to step back from technology and get a mental break from all of the noise in our society.  

10x Your Self Awareness

As mentioned above, there is no stimulus when you are in a sensory deprivation tank. You are only left with you and your thoughts, which can sound a little daunting. However, this is also the reason why float tanks are the most efficient form of self improvement and the easiest way to develop your self-awareness. Because you have no input telling you who you should be or what you should do. Rather, you get the chance to reconnect with yourself and rediscover who you truly are without any distractions to influence your thoughts.

Achieve Your Other New Year’s Resolutions

We have often compared floating to the gym — the more you float (or the more you go to the gym), the better you feel. And have you ever noticed when you start working out, you all of a sudden want to eat better, want to wake up earlier, etc, almost like it has a rollover effect on other areas of your life? Well, floating is the exact same way.

When you start floating you become more mindful of everything you do — of the conversations you have, of the books you read, the TV you watch, the foods you consume. And it becomes a rollover effect that helps improve every aspect of your life.    

So whatever the reason may be for you, there is always a reason to float. Read more about floating and the benefits in this blog post: From 1st Float to 10th float - What Happens Once You Begin To Create A Regular Practice

Why The Holiday Season Is The Best Time To Float

The holiday season can bring up a lot of feelings — both good and not-so-good. Because of the increase in family time, the extra money you spend on gifts, the stress from trying to get everything done, the holiday season can leave us feeling overwhelmed + exhausted. On top of all of that, the holidays are supposed to be filled with love, joy + gratitude.

This combination of mixed feelings is one of the many reasons the holiday season is the best time to float. Here is why:


    We all know the holidays are stressful. All of a sudden we have parties + dinners every weekend. The is a huge increase in traffic and people shopping, making even necessary trips to the grocery store a hassle. And, many of us are under more financial stress during this season creating a perfect recipe for overwhelm + exhaustion.

    But, floating can help. Floating helps decrease cortisol levels, which is our stress response hormone. Reducing this hormone physically calms us and helps us reach a state of deep relaxation (Turner and Fine). To read more about the scientific benefits of floating, check out this article HERE.

  2. MOOD

    On top of the stress, our environment doesn’t help us out much either. For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, the holiday season takes place during winter, where days get shorter & darker. This can lead to many changes in our mood including seasonal affective disorder (SAD), depression, lack of motivation, fatigue, and much more.

    Floating, however, can help combat this. During the winter we see the sun much less, reducing our intake of Vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency has been linked with SAD + depression (Penckofer, et al.). Magnesium, which is found in the epsom salt in float tanks, helps increase the activity of vitamin D, and potentially lifting feelings of sadness.


    Yep, presence, not presents. Taking time to yourself in a float tank can increase your ability to be present and more fully engaged with family members and friends. By floating, you can problem solve, work through your thoughts, bring yourself into the now. and effectively calm your mind. You now take this outside of the float tank, creating a calmer, more present YOU.


    You don’t have to wait until the New Year to start making changes. By floating through the holiday season, you will finish your year off strong and are one step ahead of everyone who waited.

    Floating is also like going to the gym. Have you every noticed that when you start working out more it’s easier to eat healthier, to wake up earlier, etc.? That is the same for floating. Starting this one good habit will rollover into the rest of your life, improving other areas as well.

Floating For Osteoporosis

Float Away For Osteoporosis Relief 

Osteoporosis is estimated to cause over 8.9 million fractures worldwide every year resulting in an osteoporotic fracture every three seconds. Treatment is offered in the form of medication and physical therapy, while a focus on nutrition and exercise is also important. However, in my experience as someone who has osteoporosis, alternative treatments such as floatation therapy can also be effective in reducing pain, elevating mood and giving a beneficial relaxation experience. Better still, floatation tanks can be added to the home to be used anytime and space doesn't have to be an issue.

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis means ‘porous bone’ when bones become weak because the body loses too much bone, or makes too little bone, or potentially both. This means they are more susceptible to fracture or breakage. It can limit mobility and inflict pain, which may result in feelings of isolation or depression. Women are more likely to develop osteoporosis than men because women have less bone to lose than men, so their bone density levels generally drop below normal more quickly than men. In addition, menopause can contribute to the development of osteoporosis, which is when I developed the symptoms. 

How can floatation therapy help?

I tried numerous medications to manage osteoporosis and finally, a consultant suggested I try a floatation experience to ease my pain. Floatation therapy is a type of hydrotherapy that allows zero gravity by dissolving Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) into gallons of water in a shallow pool. I found that the ability to float in the water allowed my body to physically relax and unwind without the pressure of gravity and it eased the pain. A floatation tank will allow changes in the brain as endorphins are released, which are natural pain relievers and happiness boosters and can help those with osteoporosis. A floatation session will also aid deep relaxation and may even shift brainwaves from beta to alpha or theta, which usually only occurs during meditation. For me, it was a shortcut to intense relaxation, which is hugely positive for someone with osteoporosis.

Combine with Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a beneficial way to increase bone strength and bone mass development and prevent the loss of bone density through exercise programs in relation to osteoporosis. I have been having sessions for some time and I now make sure I have a floatation tank experience before a physical therapy session as it can be hugely complimentary. This is because the restful state and the magnesium allow the muscles to be more relaxed which is beneficial during the physical therapy exercise programs.

Conducive to sleep

The pain that can come with osteoporosis can make sleeping difficult and even though I have a very comfortable bed I don’t always have a peaceful sleep. However, floatation therapy is reported to aid sleep, which is important for me and I have found I sleep better on the nights when I have had a floatation tank session. In addition, the Epsom salts in the floatation tank will increase magnesium levels which can reduce stress and balance calcium levels.

Floatation therapy will not prevent osteoporosis, neither will it cure it, but I have experienced benefits of floatation with my osteoporosis. Combined with physical therapy, the floatation experience has allowed relaxed muscles for a more effective program. During the floatation session, I have moved into a restorative state, allowing the release of endorphins for pain relief and mood enhancement and a completely relaxed position for the body. It has also aided my sleep and I would thoroughly recommend it.

VIDEO: Osteoporosis + Floating

Did you know floating can help you manage, and reduce your risk of getting osteoporosis?

In this video, we first explain what osteoporosis is.

Then, we cover how floating helps manage the pain and sleepless nights that come with osteoporosis.

Finally, we explain how the magnesium sulfate in float tanks play a huge role in calcium absorption + maintaining bone density to prevent or delay onset of osteoporosis.

Long-Term Tank Maintenance

We’ve heard a lot about weekly water-care and regular tank maintenance. But if you own a float tank, what happens in 2 years? 4 years? What is the long-term up keep of a sensory deprivation tank?

We are going to answer some of your most-asked questions in regards to long-term float tank maintenance:

When do you have to replace the water?

We recommend fully draining and replacing the water in your float tank every 1 - 1.5 years. However, if you stay up on regular water maintenance it can be maintained for 2 years.

How do you know when it’s time to change the water?

If you fail to stay up on regular water maintenance, the salt can settle, rust can develop and pH levels can be disrupted. If this happens the water can be saved in some cases, but in other cases it will be time to replace. More on that later.

Some other signs to look for that means it is time to change the water is if your tank develops a “locker room smell” or if the pH levels won’t stabilize. For example, if you add pH down and the levels bounce right back up, that means the water is unstable and too old to maintain.

How do you drain a tank?

The best way to drain a tank is to use a sump pump connected to a hose that can pump the water into a drain. If you don't have a sump pump available you can always use the pump that's part of your filtration system. Keep in mind it will take a bit longer using the second method.

VIDEO: Removing + Replacing Float Tank Water

In this video we two float specialists from Zen explain more on completely draining and replacing your old float tank water.

Changing + Upgrading Old Parts

We recommend changing or upgrading old parts as we release updated products. We are constantly making improvements to our products as we learn and grow as a company. So when the upgrade comes out, it is a big improvement from the previous product to ensure you have the best float and float tank as possible.

Cleaning + Disinfecting The Tank

There is weekly maintenance which includes checking water levels like salt saturation, and pH and hydrogen peroxide levels. There is also monthly maintenance which includes cleaning the walls and tank interior with a hydrogen peroxide mixture.

To read more about regular float tank maintenance click here.

Recovering Dirty + Old Water

Life happens. And sometimes you miss a couple weeks, or a couple months, of regular water maintenance. What happens when you do? Can you recover water that has gone bad?

Short answer is yes, you can recover the water.

Recovering water usually makes sense unless the water is over 1 year old. The best way to recover water is to start with a shock treatment using peroxide, by adding 10 times your normal dose. Let it sit and check levels after 2-3 hours, then maintain as usual.

Water usually can't be recovered if the chemical levels aren't stable, meaning if you add pH down and it bounces back up, that means the water is too old. Also, if it has a locker room smell then that's a good sign the water is bad.

What if I move? How do I transport the tank? Can I transport the water?

If you move, both the tank and the water can definitely be transported. Use a sump pump to drain the water, but run the hose into the largest gallon container you can find instead of draining it. Once you pack the tank up and get it in the new spot you can place the sump pump in the gallon storage container and run the hose back into the tank.

What To Expect During Your First Float

What To Expect During Your First Float

What to expect during your first float.

This article prepares you with everything you need to know about your first float. We share what happens when you first arrive at a float center, what happens when your float is over, and what happens during the float! We even include tips + tricks to finding that calm, relaxing state your first time in a float tank. And how to deal if you don’t feel like you had a good first float.

How Long And How Often Should I Float?

A common question we get asked, is how long should I float and how often should I float?

Both of these are great questions and somewhat depend on where you are in your float practice.

How long should I float?

If you are new to floating…

We recommend starting with a 60 to 90 minute float session. 60 minutes is the standard time to float at a float center because it allows enough time to get into a meditation without it becoming over whelming or feeling like the time is dragging on. We also recommend floating for 90 minutes because it can take a while to relax and get comfortable in the tank. So this allows for about 30 minutes to get relaxed and then 60 minutes of meditation.

If you are an avid floater…

If you have been floating for a while now it can be good to extend how long you are in a float tank. Try going for 2 or even 3 hours and see where that float takes you. Or it can be fun to go in the tank with no time limits. Float as long as feels good and see how long that ends up being.

Extending your time in the tank can take you to new places in your float practice, mixes up your normal routine, and can help deepen your meditation in the tank.

How often should I float?

Whether you are new to floating or an avid floater, how often you float really depends on what you are trying to get out of float. If you float for chronic pain you may need to go every single day to see results. If you are floating for general wellness or to explore different levels of consciousness, floating 3 times a week may suffice. So really think about what you are wanting to get out of floating.

However, we do say to float as consistently as you can. If that is once a week or once a month, you are going to benefit most from consistency. We always say floating is like going to the gym. The more often you go and the more consistent you are, the more benefits you’re going to experience. So, we would recommend to start with floating 3-4 times a week, and then you may be able to scale back from there once you really start to see the benefits.

Here is a video explaining how long and how often you should float:

How To Experience Sensory Deprivation At Home

Float tanks and people raving about sensory deprivation seems to be all over the media these days. From professional athletes that float, like Steph Curry and the New England Patriots, to comedians Joe Rogan and Duncan Trussell.

So what is all the hype about? And if they are that great (which, they are), how can I experience it at home?

To answer this question let’s dive a little deeper into sensory deprivation and float tanks...

zen float sensory deprivation tank for home.png


What is sensory deprivation?

Sensory deprivation is technically when you “deprive” your senses of all stimulus, such as light, sound, touch, etc. Though this may sound freaky, sensory deprivation is a great way for your body to fully relax, your brain to refresh and for you to take a moment, disconnect and be with yourself. This technique is commonly used in meditation, as it allows easier access to deeper meditative states.

As you are probably thinking, it can be very difficult to get total sensory deprivation in today’s world. And that is where a sensory deprivation tank, or a float tank, comes into play. These tanks make it extremely easy to achieve this sensory deprivation. A float tank is basically a giant pod filled with body-temperature, salt-water. The water is supersaturated with epsom salt, so any person can float easily on top of the water. And, because you are in a pod, no light or sound enters, helping to completely remove you from outside stimulation. And with the relief of gravity, your mind and body can relax too.

What does it feel like to be in a sensory deprivation tank? 

At first, heading into a sensory deprivation tank can seem a little scary. A lot of fear can come up around being claustrophobic and getting anxious (even though floating helps with anxiety… but more about that later). But once you get comfortable and are able to relax, being in a sensory deprivation tank is like nothing else. You feel weightless. Not only in your body but also in your mind. There is no pain in your joints or neck or back. Eventually your mind starts to relax too, you reach a state of deep meditation, and it almost feels like you are asleep.

For anyone new to floating we recommend trying it three times before deciding whether or not it’s for you. That will allow you a few floats to find your groove and get comfortable.

Benefits of Floating 

It's important to understand first what sensory deprivation does to the body, so you can understand why it has so many positive health benefits. 

Sensory deprivation from a float tank provides the body with relaxation, relief from pressure + tension, and a chance to heal sore muscles. Float tanks are filled with over almost 1,000 pounds of epsom salt, and the magnesium in the epsom salt helps break down lactic acid that has built up in the muscles. This allows any tightness or soreness to decrease within the body and prompts muscles to relax. Also, you are lying down but fully suspended in water. This takes the pressure from work and gravity off of your body. It allows your spine and joints to be released of any weight that may be pressing down on it.

The epsom salt in the tanks also lower cortisol levels. Cortisol is our stress response hormone, and even a slight increase in stress can build up overtime increasing your cortisol levels. When our cortisol levels are too high for too long we start to experience anxiety. And floating actually lowers these cortisol levels, helping you relax.  


Sensory deprivation and floating have a similar effect on the brain as meditation. But, there is much research specific to floating and the brain thanks to Dr. Feinstein at the Laureate Institute of Brain Research. His work has shown that floating in a sensory deprivation tank can have the same effect on your brain as taking anti-anxiety medication (Schumann).

Not only does floating help ease anxiety and panic, but it can also reduce chronic pain in patients suffering from fibromyalgia (Kjellgren, Anette, et al) and patients with severe whiplash (Edebol, Hanna, et al). Though these are very specific studies, floating can reduce pain and tension throughout the entire body.

Lastly, many people using floating for their creative endeavors. One study found that floating boosted creativity by assisting one to think more freely. And floating has been used as an effective tool for problem solving, brainstorming new ideas, and learning new information.

How do you achieve sensory deprivation at home?

As mentioned above, the easiest way to achieve sensory deprivation is with a float tank because that is exactly what they are designed to do. There are generally two ways to access a float tank. The first is to go to a float center. Believe it or not, there are full-on float spas popping up all over the world. CLICK HERE to find a float center near you. Some of the benefits of going to a center is you will meet like-minded people, and the employees are float experts who will be able to set you up with everything you need for an enjoyable float. However, they can get costly depending on how often you float.

Two alternatives to going to a float center are either building or buying a tank for your home. Up until only a few years ago a sensory deprivation tank would cost upwards of $20k to purchase. However, now with Zen Float Tent/Tank you can get started with a floating practice at home for just a few thousand dollars. And if you float enough this will save you money and time. Some more pro’s to having a float tank is you can float at your own convenience, no scheduling necessary. Plus, you can do it from the comfort of your own home.

The NEW Zen Float Tank: Your Top Questions Answered

Three years ago we were just 3 guys with a dream, a dream to make floating affordable. When we realized that water could be held in flexible affordable materials, the Float Tent was born!

After a huge success on Kickstarter we began our journey as a company. We got a factory, a distribution center, hired a whole team and made it through 3 years of startup. It was not easy, but we made it. Now the new Zen Float Tank brings everything we've learned into one amazing product. 

Because of the huge amount of support we received on the Kickstarter last time, we thought it only made sense to come back and launch this new product on Kickstarter with the community that originally helped us get started. But we're not just back, we're back with the best thing to ever happen to the home floating market:

The NEW inflatable Zen Float Tank

Screen Shot 2018-02-20 at 1.51.19 PM.png

This new tank is going to revolutionize how people experience the benefits of floating from their homes. It takes on an entirely different design, made from state-of-the-art drop-stitch technology and it is fully inflatable, unlike the original float tent. 

Our goal with this new float tank is to make the setup process that much easier for owners, improve the durability of the tank and enhance the aesthetic of having a tank in your home.

With any new product, comes lots of new questions, so we compiled a list of FAQ's about the new tank to answer them all in one place. 

FAQ About The Zen Float Tank


Q: What’s new about this tank?

  • Design

We stuck with the original pyramid design for the shape of the tank because it allows condensation from the warm-water to run down the sides of the tank and back into the tub, preventing water from dripping off the ceiling and interrupting your float.

  • Material

The Float Tent was made from stainless steel poles with a vinyl cover while the new tank is fully inflatable made from drop-stitch technology — similar to inflatable stand up paddle boards and kayaks.

Drop-stitching combines tens of thousands of finely woven threads connecting two pieces of polyester fabric. Each thread is evenly spaced between the two pieces of fabric, locking the unit into place and creating a rock-sturdy and solid inflatable product.

This new inflatable design is also more insulated than the previous vinyl cover because of the all the layering, making it 40% more efficient. This will help keep your tank and water warmer, and allows you to put it in less comfortable places like a basement or garage.

  • Heater Pads, Temperature Controller, Filtration

The new version will use the same heating pads, temperature controller, and filtration system as the previous edition. Thus, if you already have one of the original Float Tents, you can keep those and just purchase the new tank at a discounted rate (see below for details on upgrading your old zen tent).

  • Size

The old tent’s dimensions were 8’ x 4’ x 6’, with a volume of 77 cubic feet. The new tanks dimensions are 9'10" x 4' 9 " x 6'5", with a volume of 99 cubic feet. This results in a 28% increase in space, with more head room and more room in the bed to float. 


Q: When does it launch on Kickstarter and what is the price?

Our Kickstarter officially launched, April 16, and will be running for 60 days. The Kickstarter prices run at a discount from what the regular price of the new tank will be. Below is a breakdown of the kickstarter pricing :
- Upgrade $2200 - only available for previous Float Tent Owners
- Earliest Bird Tanks $2,625 (-25%) - Sold Out
- Early Bird Tank $2,800 (-20%) - 20 available at this price
- Float Ready Package w/ Salt + Shipping (Lower 48 states only) $3,950 (-17%) - 30 available at this price
- Multiple Tank Purchase Specials: 2 Tank Special - $5,040 (-28%) & 4 Tank Special - $9,520 (-32%)

Q: What about if you are a current Zen Float Tent owner?

If you already own the first Zen Float Tent you will be able to upgrade to the newer version. This upgrade will be available through Kickstarter. You will keep your current filtration system, temperature controller and heater pads and send back everything else.

Q: Which countries do we ship to?  

During kickstarter we will only be shipping to the US, Canada, UK, and Australia. If you live in a different country and would like to purchase a tank, please email us at randall@zenfloatco.com 

Q: Is the tent still available? 

Yes, as of right now the Zen Float Tent is available, and will be until further notice. The tent can be purchased from our website at zenfloatco.com/shop

Health Benefits of Floating In A Sensory Deprivation Tank- Backed By Science


There is a lot information about the benefits of float tanks and sensory deprivation. After floating people claim they are less stressed, sleep better, more creative and all around feel better physically + mentally.

Sure, some of these benefits are real. However, when you start to take care of yourself in a way that you haven’t before, you feel better all-around.

For example, if you get a new gym membership you may start eating healthier, sleeping better, feeling more confident. Some of these benefits are actual results from the gym, but some of these are rollover effects because you started putting energy into taking care of yourself.     

In that sense, floating also has a lot of cumulative effects but what are the real health benefits?

There is a lot of research on the benefits of meditation, and we have always considered floating to be meditation on steroids. So there should be some crossover, right? The scientific benefits of meditation include decreased anxiety + depression, increased compassion + emotional intelligence, helps with emotion regulation, improves focus, memory + attention, etc (Seppala).

To see what crossover between meditation + floating, and to start uncovering the real benefits of floating, we first turned to Dr. Feinstein.

Dr. Feinstein is a clinical neuropsychologist and lab director at the Laureate Institute for Brain Research (http://www.laureateinstitute.org/justin-feinstein.html). His lab is dedicated to understanding how floating can help connect the body and the brain and reduce levels of depression, anxiety and anorexia, by using wireless and waterproof machinery to scan the body and brain during floats.

We had the chance to meet with Dr. Feinstein and his lab partners at the 2016 Float Conference, and listen to them speak at the 2017 Float Conference. They have tremendous amounts of research done on fear, anxiety, emotional awareness, memory and are continuously working to understand the biological and physical benefits floating has.

After looking at Dr. Feinstein’s research and other studies done on floating, we have compiled a list of the “scientific” benefits of floating:

Boosts Creativity

 In a study done by Norlander et al, two groups of people — floaters and non-floaters — were tested in visual logical puzzles, freeform brainstorming and standardized questions. At the end of the test it was found that the float group performed 50% more original in freeform brainstorming, but 30% slower in solving visual logical puzzles.

This suggests that floating may not improve one’s ability to think logically or problem solve, but the reduction in sensory stimulation can boost creativity by allowing your brain to full think freely. (Norlander et al)

Reduces Anxiety

Our bodies get an “anxious” feeling in response to our fight or flight signals. When needed, fight or flight helps us become alert, aware and on guard ready to protect ourselves from an outside threat. However, our world today has created a scenario in which many people’s fight or flight response is constantly running and people experience heightened levels of anxiety, panic and fear.

The Amygdala is a portion of your brain that responsible for controlling your fight or flight and your stress, fear and panic responses. Dr. Feinstein has done extensive research on floating affects the amygdala and found that, flotation and some anxiety medication have the same effect on the brain (Schumann).

Likewise, Psychiatrist Martin Paulus, president and scientific director also at the Laureate Institute, says “The amygdala is very reactive to things coming in from the outside—somebody looks at you funny, or you hear a sound that’s scary,” Paulus says. “That kind of stress is good when the guy looking at you is about to steal your wallet, but elsewhere it’s counterproductive” (Vigneron). This is partially a cause of anxiety and Paulus theorizes that floating reduces the reactivity of the amygdala.

Minimizes Pain

Floatation therapy has been studied alongside with fibromyalgia and chronic whiplash. Patients suffering from fibromyalgia, self-reported decreased pain for days up to weeks after one float tank session. Likewise, other people living with chronic pain disorders similarly self-reported reduced muscle tension and pain after a session in a float tank (Kjellgren, Anette, et al). To read more about fibromyalgia and floating, click here:

Patients suffering from chronic whiplash disorder tested out a sensory deprivation tank to treat pain, and it was found to be a meaningful and substantial tool for pain reduction (Edebol, Hanna, et al).     

Less stress

Not only does sensory deprivation therapy reduce the reactivity of the amygdala, it also lowers cortisol levels. Cortisol is the hormone produced by humans when they are under stress. However, many people experience adrenal exhaustion and cortisol is constantly being produced leaving one feeling constantly stressed, overwhelmed and anxious.

It was found that blood-cortisol levels were significantly and temporarily reduced after float tank therapy, producing a state of deep relaxation (Turner and Fine).
Because of lowered of cortisol levels, many people feel associated benefits to stress reduction as well, such as improved sleep quality and lowered blood pressure. 

Improves Athletic Performance

With many great athletes using sensory deprivation — Stephen Curry, Aly Raisman and JJ Watts — it is no wonder that floating has become a popular form of training and recovering for many other athletes as well. And good news, there is scientific evidence showing how floating can improve athletic performance.

One study found that based off judges opinions, athletes that floated performed better than those who didn’t amongst college basketball players (Wagaman, et al).

Mentioned earlier, Dr. Paulus believes this is because athletes that float have a less reactive amygdala allowing them to think clearer and stay more composed during high-intensity activity as compared to their peers that don’t float (Vigneron).


With all of the above mentioned benefits, that are real, what do you need more of in your life?

Looking to improve your own athletic performance? Want to reduce stress and anxiety? Still searching for the best method of pain management?

Why not try hopping in a float tank and see how it can change your life?

Where To Put A Float Tank When You Think You Don't Have Room


Sometimes the most challenging part of owning a float tent or tank of any kind is figuring out where to put it in your house.

Often, we believe we need an entire separate bedroom just for the float tent, with special flooring, insulated walls and on the first floor.

However, we have seen some very creative spots that look great - a garage, an office, a kitchen, and even a living room.

To answer questions about finding a space for your tent and what the conditions of the room should be, we have the answers listed here. Or scroll to the bottom and watch a video with all the same information.   

  1. How much room do you need?

    Our tents are 8ft x 4ft which is similar in size to a twin bed. Our tanks are slightly larger at 9'9" x 4'9". You will also need about one foot circumference around the float tent for cleaning + maintenance.   

  2. What kind of floor does it need?

    Our tent can be put on any floor; however some floor types may need more insulation - like concrete in a garage or tile in a kitchen floor. We recommend using carpet padding, pieces of carpet or rubber gym mats under the tent to help insulate the bottom and keep heat in.

    Our new tank has an inflatable bottom piece, that provides additional insulation. So on certain floors (like cement or tile) the tank will stay slightly warmer than the tent.

  3. Does your carpet get wet getting in and out of?

    The water will not leak out of the tent. Both our sensory deprivation tents and tanks are tested by holding water for 24 hours before being sent out. This ensures there won’t be any leaks.

    Likewise, the new tank has a drip mat at the entrance of the tank. So when entering and exiting the tank you can stand on this mat to wipe all the water + salt off before tracking across your floor. 

  4. How do I get water into my tent if it's in a living room or bedroom?

    To fill up your tank you can use a hose and an attachment, and run the water into your tank.

  5. How do you fill up the tank in your living room/kitchen/etc?

    You will run a hose from the nearest bath tub or faucet and attach the in line carbon filter (which is delivered with you tent) to the end of your hose to clean the water as you fill the thent.

  6. Do they ever cause mold in the house?

    We have never seen molding. Our tents are completely self contained and welded shut with sealable doors keeping all moisture in the tent. The temperature in the room may increase, but there is no extra humidity in the room nor does the water evaporation leave the tent.

  7. How do you drain the water?

    The best way to drain it is to just use a pump and a hose. You can pump the water down a curb or shower drain, just don’t drain it into grass because it is salty. Also, if you stay up on tent maintenance you will only have to drain your tent every 2 years.

3 Health benefits of adding a float tank to your cryotherapy session

Photo taken from Forbes Magazine Article: " What's the cold, hard facts on cryotherapy? "

Photo taken from Forbes Magazine Article: "What's the cold, hard facts on cryotherapy?"

Today’s top athletes are developing better and better muscle recovery tactics to improve their game. But the popularity amongst cryotherapy and floatation therapy are increasing among wellness gurus, biohackers and everyday people who want their bodies and minds to feel better.

Cryotherapy essentially uses freezing cold temperatures to speed up athletic recovery and reduce pain in the body by freezing nerve endings and reducing blood flow to inflamed areas. The freezing temperatures help reduce pain, increase muscle recovery, increase weight-loss, improve blood circulation, eliminates harmful toxins from the body (Bleakley, et al.). To do this, one sits in a “Cryochamber” where temperatures can drop below -200 degrees fahrenheit. The beyond freezing temperatures.

Floatation therapy, on the other hand, allows you lie weightless in a bath full of body-temperature, epsom-salt water. Because of the high concentration of epsom salt, you float on top of the water and with no sound or light entering the float tank, your mind and body are able to fully relax.  

At first, cryotherapy and floatation therapy were exclusive to professional athletes and hippies, but now they have growing popularity among anyone seeking to improve their performance and well-being. All over the world there are cryotherapy and float spas opening up their doors. In fact, it is not uncommon to see cryotherapy centers also offering sensory deprivation, or float tank experiences, to their clients as well.

That’s because these two practices are a perfect compliment for each other. While they both give similar results such as stress reduction, muscle recovery, and pain relief; they are very unique practices and provide what the other is “lacking”.   

Here are 3 health benefits of adding a float tank to your cryotherapy sessions:

  1. Cryotherapy will leave you energized; Floating brings you peace

    Cryotherapy provides a burst of energy as soon as you step out, because the cold stimulates your system. This is beneficial in productivity; however, too much stimulation can leave you feeling overwhelmed or anxious. Floating, on the other hand, reduces sensory input and provides you with a sense of peace and calmness. After a session of each you leave feeling alert, but not overwhelmed, so you can have your most productive day.
  2. Cryotherapy reduces muscle soreness; Floating leaves you feeling weightless

    The extreme cold temperatures in cryotherapy reduce blood flow which then decreases inflammation and muscle soreness within the body. Floating takes all pressure off of your body by allowing you to lie weightless in a salt-water bath. The weightlessness of a float tank reduces everyday tension that is put on your joints, neck, shoulders, back, etc. In combination these two therapies take any physical pressure and tension of of your body, while effectively healing physical injuries.
  3. Cryotherapy has great physical benefits; Floating will take care of your mind

    Cryotherapy is a very physical practice. Yes, you have to find the mental strength to withstand such freezing temperatures, but at most you are in a cryochamber for only a few minutes. The real benefit of cryotherapy is physical — it decreases blood flow to injured areas, reduces inflammation, increases muscle recovery and relieves pain. Floating also provides some physical benefit, but it does much more for your mind. By reducing all sensory input, you are left in a deep meditative state which teaches you to control your thoughts and actions, enhances emotional intelligence, slows anxious thought patterns, helps you work through problems, and is a great space for visualization. Both of these together is a super combination that lets you master your mind and body.     

Cryotherapy along with Floatation therapy provide balanced care for your body and mind. To learn more about floating, take a look at our Float 101 Guide
