8What does it feel like to float in the tank?
Floating feels like nothing, which is (unsurprisingly) difficult to describe. Initially the water is pleasantly warm, but quickly becomes less noticeable as the air and water are set to match the temperature of your skin. This equilibrium, combined with the weightlessness from the buoyant solution, results in very little external stimuli and allows your mind and body room to relax, recover and recharge. The specific experience is unique to each individual and each float. However, most people report experiencing strong feelings of peace and relaxation. Some floaters report feeling highly creative or find themselves thinking about profound subjects.
9Could I have hallucinations in the Float Tank?
Many people have reported having hallucinations in a floating tank. Over the years, studies have shown that sensory deprivation does induce psychosis-like experiences.
