These adult-sized wombs could take over the meditation world

If you're looking for a way to meditate, both physically and mentally, you've found it!  This flotation therapy device allows you to lay naked and face-up in a tank of water at temperatures matching your skin, about 94 degrees Fahrenheit, with a high concentration of Epsom salt.  You see nothing, hear nothing, or feel nothing.

This hydrotherapy process is also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique (REST).  This practice has been around since the 1950's and is now resurfacing in modern meditation.

The practice provides a lot of health benefits and can increase creative performance and decrease depression and anxiety.  The heavy salt concentration aids muscle pain by reducing blood lactate levels.

Newcomers showed signs of claustrophobia when first trying the device.  Others reported hearing voices, seeing light phenomena, or feeling as if they were soaring.  When the brain is cut off from external stimuli, it begins to create its own.

The float tanks cost upwards of $10,000 and require regular maintenance of hydrogen peroxide cleaning and constant refilling.
