With close to 1000 pounds of epsom salts mixed with a shallow amount of water, it creates a buoyant effect, even more so than the Dead Sea. The weightlessness experienced is as close to being in space as is possible. The relief of the effects of gravity on the muscles is extremely relaxing.
Water in the tank is set at 93.5 degrees which is the same as the outside of the skin. The body perceives no temperature difference between it and the outside environment which reduces stimulation.
The tank is free from light when the door is closed. This gives the mind a break from visual stimulation like technology.
The tank itself is designed to minimize the amount of sound that penetrates its walls. We built the room surrounding the tank to eliminate sound even further. The quiet a person experiences in the tank helps create a relaxing environment away from everyday noise.
