“But I Can’t Relax” + Other Reasons You Should Try Float Therapy

A float tank is a small shallow pool filled with water nearly saturated with Epsom salt, so it’s dense like the Dead Sea. You float completely effortlessly. The tank is kept warm, body temperature, and it’s enclosed so it’s completely dark and quiet. It’s your own private world. It’s utterly relaxing. But in the four years we’ve operated a couple of these babies, we thought it was time to share some of the common or interesting reasons not to try floating that we’ve heard.

So, you think you’re bad at relaxing. That might be the exact reason why floatation therapy, also known as REST (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) here at Perpetuity Skin + Spa on the Boise bench, could be incredibly beneficial for you. Here’s why:

  • Effortless Relaxation: Unlike meditation, no focus or thought management is required. The super-dense Epsom salt water and quiet environment naturally trigger your relaxation response.
  • Benefits Even for Skeptics: Developed in universities 60 years ago, floatation therapy boasts established science and growing popularity worldwide.
  • Reduced Stress and Improved Sleep: Floating is a powerful tool to combat the overstimulation and stress of modern life. Studies show it reduces anxiety and improves sleep quality for days.

Addressing Common Concerns:

  • No Special Skills Needed: Just float and let the environment do the work.
  • Complete Control: You’re in charge! The tank is spacious with an easily accessible door.
  • Not Claustrophobic: Tanks are larger than they seem and allow free movement. Lights and open doors are always an option.
  • Not a Sensory Deprivation Torture Technique: This is a safe, controlled environment where you can leave anytime.
  • Altered States, Not Hallucinations: Floating may induce a trance-like state, but visuals are usually mild.
  • Beyond a Bath Experience: Float tanks offer superior temperature control, size, soundproofing, and Epsom salt concentration for a truly transformative experience.
