RELAXOPOD: BE THE PEARL THAT YOU ARE
INTRODUCTION
Float tank (aka floatation tank, sensory deprivation tank, or isolation tank): A tank filled with water that has enough Epsom salt mixed in to allow a person to float on the surface. The water is kept at skin-temperature, making it imperceptible, and the tank is soundproof and pitch-black, creating a place for our bodies to be free from gravity and all stimulation from the outside world.
AN ABSTRACTs
A float tank is not as much an object as it is an environment. An environment whose purpose is to act as a counterbalance to every other interaction we have with the world around us. It is the pursuit of a pure nothingness. A place of rest. It is an environment that allows our bodies and our minds to sink away from the society that has been built around us, and to instead turn focus internally. A chance to check in with ourselves, uninhibited and unadulterated by the external forces that are otherwise omnipresent. There is no magic in the float tank, the magic is us. Our bodies have spent millions of years learning how to take care of themselves, and the float tank simply provides the optimum environment with which to do it.
APPEARANCE
The float tank as we know it today comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are called by several different names: most commonly 'rooms,' 'tanks,' and 'pods.'
SALT
Each tank holds a solution that is about 2/3 water and 1/3 Epsom salt. With the 10" of solution that most float tanks are designed to hold, this comes out to about 850 lbs of Epsom salt. The Epsom salt adds density to the water, which in turn makes our bodies very buoyant. As a person lies on their back in the float tank, their body floats on the surface, half in and half out of the water. This buoyancy has an incredibly rejuvenating effect on the human body.
How salty is the float tank?
Buoyancy in the float tank is most commonly recorded as a measurement of specific gravity (a comparison of relative densities). With pure water holding a specific gravity of exactly 1, the ocean comes in at about 1.025. Float tanks usually sit in the 1.27 - 1.3 range, making them up to 12 times more buoyant than ocean water. .
Ocean water is about 3% salt. Float tank water is about 35% salt.
The closest experience to this that most people know of is the Dead Sea, a hypersaline lake in Israel known for its ability to keep people afloat. The specific gravity of the Dead Sea is about 1.16, just half that of a float tank.
At a specific gravity of about 1.32, the salt has reached its saturation point (at the temperatures that float tanks are kept). This means that any more salt will refuse to even dissolve into the solution, gathering in clumps at the bottom, or floating in crystalline form on the surface. Basically, they have so much salt in them that float tanks skirt the border between a liquid and solid state of matter.
