Have you ever been to the dead sea before? It’s one of the most unique environments on planet earth. In fact, it’s rich in minerals that most places on the planet are a rare and difficult find but because the dead sea is so rich in salt you actually float on top of the water. There are many rejuvenating and health benefits of bathing in the dead sea in Jordan, and you can read more about that by reading this article. How cool would it be to experience that? to just float on top of water and float in a sea of mineral richness?
Now, thanks to a newer technology that is beginning to spread across America you can! It’s called a float tank. Flotation tanks are tanks that contain around 1,000 pounds of epsom salt, they are completely dark and the temperature of the water in the tank is the same temperature of the surface of your skin. You wear earplugs so that the salt water doesn’t get in your ear drums and you lay in this tub of silence and darkness with mineral salt water surrounding you as you float with buoyancy because of the anti-gravity affects of the water you’re in.
It’s a really cool experience, your sense of feeling (touching) as well as your sense of hearing and vision are essentially turned off completely. The only thing you smell is the salt water so that’s limited in it’s range as well. You just lay in this tank for 60 or 90 minutes and soak up the salt water, which boosts your magnesium levels in your body as well as reduces stress hormones.

You can float in the Metro-Detroit area by visiting NeuroFitCenter.com or you can search the web for a float tank (also known as an isolation tank or sensory deprivation tank) within your local area.
I recommend floating and making it part of your life, even if this is something you do just once a month it really helps to reduce stress hormones, improve brain function, creativity, memory, focus as well as just feel very relaxed. 1-hour of floating feels equivalent to 3 hours of sleep or so, so it’s a great way to get truly relaxed and rejuvenated.
