Floating In Samadhi-Tanks

 - Sep 24, 2007
Weightlessness for relaxation -- that's what floating in the Samadhi tank is all about the. It's no doubt one of the most interesting wellness trends to date, involving floating in a concentrated saltwater bath in special floating tanks that give the feeling of weightlessness. The water has a real buoyancy to it; it's like your own personal Dead Sea. The tanks are filled with about 600 litres of a brine mixture which is exactly the same temperature as your skin (about 34.5°C.) The entire body relaxes, the skin and muscles warm up, and your circulation improves.

Although it might look like you're meditating in a giant toilet bowl, the zen-like state you'll feel will surely cancel any self-consciousness.
