Floatation therapy was first developed in the mid 1950’s in California by a scientist investigating brain and nerve science (neurophysiology). As a control group for experiments professor John C. Lilly sought to eliminate all sensory input to the brain. He used a liquid ‘bed’ of highly saline (Epsom Salt) water and heated it to skin temperature (93.8°) forming the basis of floatation therapy. The floater looses any sense of being in water and experiences a remarkable ‘floating in space’ sensation. Further control over light and sound in his experiment led him to the discovery of the profound benefits of sensory deprivation or sensory isolation.
By the 1970’s the results of numerous scientific studies documented the remarkable benefits of floatation therapy and commercial tanks appeared on the market. Now in the 21st century the floatation industry has continued to evolve. For some reason Europe and Asia are much more open to alternative therapies where this technology has blossomed and become a mainstay for stress relief and athletic healing.
The Pod designs at i float Sensations are the result of a high degree of refinement in technology and design. The beautiful, futuristic design of the pods is matched with technology that allows simplicity of control to the floater over light and sound. With four transducers (sound emitters) mounted to the side of the pods you will bask in the music. The LED lights produce a full spectrum of light giving the floater the ability toggle through a series of light colors to enjoy and float in. State-of-the-art filtration utilizes the very latest developments in UV light sanitization, ozone oxidization, skimmers, and 10 micron filters making the floatation experience safe, clean, and fulfilling experience.
