What is Sensory Deprivation Tank (Float Tank Therapy)

Sensory deprivation tanks are a type of isolation tank that reduce outside stimuli. They are used for relaxation and meditation.

Sensory Deprivation Tanks have been around for a long time now. First developed in 1954 by John C. Lilly, they were originally called “sensory deprivation chambers” and were used as a tool for studying the effects of sensory isolation on human consciousness and physiology. Sensory deprivation tank Aka Float Tank Therapy is a container that is filled with water and has enough room for one person to float in it. The person can then experience complete silence, darkness, and a lack of feeling from the water. This tank is also called a float tank or sensory deprivation chamber.

There are many benefits of floating therapy that make it a popular treatment option for those who suffer from chronic pain. It helps to reduce the levels of stress hormones in the body and creates a feeling of well-being. It also can help with anxiety, insomnia, and PTSD by providing a sense of peace and relaxation.

The sensory deprivation tank is not for everyone as it can be uncomfortable for some people to be in complete silence and darkness for an extended period of time.
