Rediscovery Of “Floatation Tanks”

 In Miscellaneous

Years ago, I used what’s called a “Flotation Tanks” or “Sensory Deprivation Tank” in New York City and Phoenix. Then I moved and tanks weren’t available to me.

I re-discovered them when a Flotation Center opened in my hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. But then that Center moved to another city. So, since I loved the experience, I got my own tank which I owned for 3 years.

Then I moved and didn’t have a great place for the tank, so when another Flotation Center opened in my town, I traded my tank to them for access to their tanks which I now use and enjoy a lot.

The idea is if you can turn off or dramatically reduce all sensory input (sounds, images, sensations, etc.), it’s possible to have a wide variety of expansive experiences. That’s a quick summary only. See below for more detail.

While floating, I experience what could be called “deep relaxation” and “expanded states” and also a tremendous flow of creative ideas in it. It’s super cool.

Here’s a picture of the tank I used to own:

Information On Flotation Tanks

I have the “Samadhi Classic” Tank. Lee and Glenn Perry are the owners of the company. They’ve been manufacturing tanks for 28+ years, since the very beginning with Dr. John Lilly. Here’s their website:
