Feeling a little stressed? You’re not alone which is why sensory deprivation is becoming increasingly one of the most sought after trends.
So what is sensory deprivation?
Sensory deprivation (Sendep) or perceptual isolation. An isolation tank which is a lightless, soundproof tank inside where you float in about 10″ of Epsom salt water at skin temperature.
The first isolation rank was used by John C. Lilly in 1954 to test the effects on sensory deprivation. These tanks are also used for meditation and have been proven to be one of the most highly forms of relaxation and alternative to medication.
Steve Skalkowski, Owner of Astral Float Spa in Parker, CO said, “Recent studies have shown benefits for people suffering from Fibromyalgia and veterans coming home from combat with PTSD. Being prior military myself I look forward to helping as many veterans as I can and will offer the first session free for any vet diagnosed with PTSD. More and more people are looking for a way to unplug from this sensory overloaded society, floatation gives people that disconnect and the results are profound.”
Today it was my turn. I was intrigued by what I’ve read and thought it would be worth giving it a try and reporting back to the CRJ community.
To make a very long story short, the experience was fantastic, even with the newbie nervous jitters! After about 10 mins or so I was able to start focusing on not thinking and experiencing which is when I dozed off. If felt as if I fell asleep on some clouds. The water temperature was a perfect blend which left it undetected leaving a feeling of weightlessness.
According to a recent press release published by Astral Float Spa, the isolation tanks are filled with 10 inches of water and 850 pounds of Epsom salt effectively making a person buoyant.
I had a chance to talk with Steve and he agreed to give our CRJ readers 20 percent off their first float just by mentioning this article and if you’re stressed and feeling overwhelmed it could be the peace and quiet and tranquility you need! Seriously!
Here’s how you can get in contact with Steve to book your first float.
