“Amazing to find this place in Lubbock! This is my first time experiencing sensory deprivation tanks and I couldn't be more pleased. The place is extremely calm and clean, and I felt very relaxed from the second I stepped into the door. The tanks themselves are beautiful. Having done it just this evening for my first time, I can only describe the feeling as incomparably relaxed. I feel drastically less tension in my entire body and a sense of calm that's absolutely wonderful. Wish I had been doing this sooner!” ~ Conner B.
Float tanks have actually been around since the 1960’s and even though they have been essentially under the radar to the general public for most of that time their amazing physical and mental benefits gained a quiet popularity over the decades. Usually among those on the cutting edge in their fields such as Olympic athletes, artists, musicians, etc but now the secret is out and as more people begin to seek holistic alternatives Float Therapy is quickly becoming known as an incredible rejuvenative tool in our efforts to maintain a healthy balance in our fast paced world.
If you are new to floating we’ll provide a quick overview along with some tips and instructions when you arrive to make your first float as comfortable as possible but you are always welcome to give us a call with any questions you might have.
We provide everything you’ll need here at our facility. Each room is completely private and has a full shower, bathroom and vanity area. Again we’ll provide amenities such as towels, shampoo and earplugs but you are welcome to bring your own.
After a quick shower your session doesn’t begin until once you’ve entered the i-sopod tank. Once you’re inside you’ll begin to hear some soft music signalling the start of your session. At that point it’s time to say goodbye to the world and sink into the soft warm stillness of solitude.
At 4ft. high, 5ft wide and over 8ft. long the i-sopod float tank is considerably larger than most tanks on the market today and can accommodate even the largest football players.
Each tank is filled with approx twelve inches of water and has about 1200lbs of Epsom salt dissolved into it. Click here: http://www.epsomsaltcouncil.org for more information on the amazing healing aspects of Epsom Salt.
Not only does this leave the skin feeling silky smooth but the density of the water is such that the body is suspended and supported effortlessly much like a buoy floating in the ocean.
The water is heated to a comfortably warm 94 degrees which eventually leads to the loss of kinesthetic sensation. In other words one can no longer feel a difference between the air, water, and skin. Unless you’re an astronaut, the feeling of weightlessness you can achieve inside a float tank is probably the closest most of us will ever get to truly being completely free of gravity. However, floating along in the deep quiet sea of inner-space can be a truly euphoric experience.
An i-sopod is designed to be a fully controllable environment and user friendly from the inside of the tank. Although the best benefits are intended to be experienced from restricted sensory stimulation, which is what the tanks were originally constructed to provide; the lighting, sound, and lid all have the ability to be set according to your comfort level.
Stepping into the tank is almost like stepping into some kind of futuristic space pod. Whenever you’re ready to close your eyes and begin drifting away the soft serene glow of LED light inside the tank can be turned off with the touch of a button. Once inside the tank there is nothing left to do but to lay back and let go.
You must have a room, or a certain hour or so a day, where you don’t know what was in the newspapers that morning, you don’t know who your friends are, you don’t know what you owe anybody, you don’t know what anybody owes to you. This is a place where you can simply experience and bring forth what you are and what you might be. This is the place of creative incubation. At first you may find that nothing happens there. But if you have a sacred place and use it, something eventually will happen. ~ Joseph Campbell
