My Floating Tank Experience with Sensory Deprivation

I have been hearing a lot of people talk about their experience with floating tanks and sensory deprivation. You basically float in a tank filled with water at body temperature and 1000 pounds of epsom salt for 60 to 90 minutes. You can either keep the lights and sounds on or off. I opted to turn off all sensory and wear ear plugs as well.

There are supposed to be many physical and mental benefits to these floating tanks, such as increased energy, accelerated muscle recovery, boosts immune system function, lowers blood pressure, accelerates creativity, better mental clarity and alertness, improved problem solving, diminishes depression, anxiety and fear. Many of the same benefits that come with meditation.

In this video I visit Easy Float in San Juan Capistrano and share my floating tank experience with sensory deprivation.

Also, in this video I am sharing some running video clips from all the rain we recently had here in California.

I have been in the US for 15 years and can not remember a winter with more rain.
The hills and mountains are greener than I have ever seen.

In the coming weeks the wild flowers will be covering the mountains, it will be a beautiful sight.

Can’t wait to go back to Lake Elsinor for the wild flowers soon. I took this photo on March 17 2017.

I would love to hear from you. Will you ever try a floating tank? Or if you have already tried it, what was your experience? Please let me know in the comments.
