Does screen time, school stress and activity over-scheduling ever send you into sensory overload? Feel aches and pains from strenuous physical activity (or lack of it?) Flotation therapy just might be the restorative outlet for you. The wellness trend is catching on for its benefits across the country with as many as nine new flotation parlors opening up every month.

The keys to sensory deprivation–and utter relaxation–with restricted environmental stimulation technique (REST) tanks, according to scientific studies and testimonials alike, are the sound-proof, darkened, warm water tanks filled with hundreds of pounds of soothing epsom salts, which keep you effortlessly afloat. The experience is said to help floaters clear minds, de-stress and take physical pressures off the body for a while.

“Floating has had such a profound impact on my life that I decided to open my own center. We want to educate everyone we can about how flotation therapy can make them less stressed, happier and healthier,” said Kriss Brooks, Co-Founder of Northwest Float Center in a press release.

So what do you think? Ready to pop in some ear plugs and take a mood-boosting “plunge?”
