A sensory deprivation chamber or float tank is an enclosed light and sound proof environment, with a shallow solution of water and 1,500 pounds of dissolved Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate). The Epsom salt solution is maintained at a consistently warm temperature of 94.5 degrees.
Sensory deprivation chambers come in all shapes and sizes. Float Fresno has one large, fully walk in float chamber we call the Neptune Tank. We also have a traditional sensory deprivation tank called the Moon Tank.
The sensory deprivation chamber was invented and developed by John C. Lilly in the 1950’s.
Floatation therapy is a unique experience in which a client soaks and floats in a solution of Epsom salt, with the intention of positively affecting the health and well-being of the client.
Float Fresno has you in mind! Our float tanks are kept meticulously clean with sanitation and disinfection procedures between each client. The solution is filtered and sanitized using Ultraviolet light and Ozone water treatment before and after each client.
Both of our float tanks have the same state-of-the-art sanitation and disinfection equipment.
Each float tank is sprayed and wiped down with an EPA approved disinfectant before each client to ensure the highest level of cleanliness.
The float tank is a very unique and effective tool. The decrease in stimuli and anti-gravity sensations leave the body feeling refreshed and rejuvenated due to natural endorphin’s released from the brain.
Our Neptune Tank is a full walk in float chamber. The dimensions are 7ft tall, 4ft wide by 8ft long. The solution of Epsom salt is approximately 14 inches deep.
Our Moon Tank is a traditional float chamber. The dimensions are 4ft tall, 4ft wide by 8ft long. The solution of Epsom salt is approximately 14 inches deep.
The Epsom salt makes the water extremely heavy, so you will float effortlessly on your back like a cork. The water is 14 inches deep making it practically impossible to drown.
Epsom salt is a pure and natural mineral compound composed of Magnesium and Sulfate. We use only the highest quality salt (Pharmaceutical Grade Epsom salt). Epsom Salt can be easily dissolved in water, and is readily absorbed by the skin as a remedy for a number of ailments.
We use 1500 lbs. of Epsom Salt in each float tank. The high concentration of salt make the water extremely dense, and gives it the anti-gravity effects.
Float sessions are by appointment only and are purchased and scheduled online.
If you would like to come as a walk in, please call or email us to schedule.
You don’t need to bring anything.
No swim suits or clothing are allowed in the float tanks. Clothing can be a distraction while floating, and can also cause unnecessary wear and tear to our sanitation equipment.
*If you wear contacts, please do not forget your storage containers. You will have to remove your contacts while using the float tank.*
