Floating is a relaxation and therapeutic technique that involves restricting sensory input to achieve a deepened meditative state.
You get in a floatation tank filled with 10 inches of a high concentration Epsom salt water solution. The density that results from 900lbs of epsom salt makes you completely buoyant and so you just lay down and float effortlessly.
The water is the same temperature as your body, about 93 to 95.7 degrees, so you don't feel anything. At this is where the feeling of nothingness begins, and your worries end.
Soon you are so relaxed, you can't tell where you end and the water begins — you feel like you are levitating. This triggers the release of endorphins, your muscles and spine loosen (almost zero gravity!) and you just experience extreme peace and clarity of thought. It's just you, exploring and experiencing your own mind, while the salt soothes and detoxifies your body.
