My Sensory Deprivation Float Tank Experience

In Personal Growth, Videos by Amy7 Comments

Today I had my first ever Sensory Deprivation Float Tank experience. (at Cloud Nine Float Center in Boulder).sensory deprivation float tank

It was incredible…

This is the Tranquility Float Tank that I spent 90 minutes inside of. ==>>

It’s a “sensory deprivation tank” filled with skin temperature salt water… so you can float and let go and not feel anything, including gravity. (The door closes and the light turns off so you are in the pitch dark, just floating).

There are TONS of benefits of floating.

Here are some of them…

Benefits of Floating in a Sensory Deprivation Tank

  • Stress relief
  • Relief from nervousness and anxiety
  • Relief from jet lag
  • Relief from insomnia
  • Relief from muscular aches and pain
  • Improves concentration and memory
  • Increases energy
  • Stimulates creative thinking and problem solving
  • Reduced feelings of anger and agitation


Many people also use flotation therapy as mental preparation for work or academic/sporting challenges.

There are also many medical conditions that flotation therapy benefits as well such as:

  • arthritis
  • back pain
  • premenstrual tension
  • postpartum depression
  • asthma
  • migraine headaches
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • cardiovascular conditions

  • and many more…

Benefits of Floating in Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)

According to,

“Floating is a route to profound relaxation.”


Here are some of the benefits of floating in Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate):

“Sulphate (sulfate) is essential to life in several ways. Sulfate is essential for the formation of proteins in joints, also for digestive enzymes and the gut wall lining. Furthermore sulfate is essential to the formation of brain tissue and is also involved in detoxification. Sulfate is not easily absorbed from the diet.

Bathing in magnesium sulfate is therefore a significant, safe and easy way to correct deficiency. The evidence also shows that surplus is naturally removed by the kidneys, just as it is if you have surplus in the diet.”

These and other benefits can be found in much greater detail at

Must-See Video About The Sensory Deprivation Tank

I watched a really cool video about it by Joe Rogan where he says,

“There’s so much evolution that goes on in that tank. It’s one of the greatest tools ever for exploring thinking.”

Another quote I love from Joe Rogan in this video is,

“It’s a f***ing amazing way to think… everybody should be doing this.”

He says that if this was a ride at Disney World, the line would be 7 hours long. But since it’s such an organic way to achieve this state, people don’t take it seriously.

This video is a must-see… it will help you understand so much more about what flotation therapy provides.

Awesome, right?

I feel really good from my session today… and I can also tell that the benefits of hanging out in a sensory deprivation float tank will continually improve the more I do it.

I’m constantly blown away by all of the different modalities, therapies, and methods that are available for human transformation. I love trying new things like flotation therapy. 🙂

I am grateful every single day for the abundant world that we live in…

And I highly recommend finding your nearest float center and trying this thing out. It’s awesome. 🙂
