Going into The Float Tank / Isolation Tank for Exercise Recovery

Ok so recently I had the pleasure of going into a float tank. If you haven’t heard of them then you may have called isolation or sensory deprivation tanks. It’s basically a large space age looking pod that closes with you inside filled with really warm salty water. 1000 pounds of salt to be precise! Due to the amount of salt in the water when you’re in their you are completely weightless- the first time you will have experienced that since being in the womb- unless your name is Buzz Aldrin :). So you close the lid and get in, shut the lid and turn off the light. As the air temperature is held at exactly body temperature and so is the water temperature you are completely disjointed from your physical body. Coupled with the lack of vision and hearing this gives rise to a feeling of just pure consciousness. Now you might be asking why did I do this? Well it can be awesome for exercise recovery so I really wanted to give it a go. I also experienced some pretty full on psychedelic vision in there – something I wasn’t really expecting! ┬áIf you want to hear my whole experience in full then check out my podcast link below- it really was pretty full on – and I go into all the strange and sometimes embarrassing detail in it!
