Float On Hong Kong Time to Turn Off

[21/09/16] 

It’s possible you don’t know much about the origins of floatation therapy. Using a sensory deprivation tank (which sounds like the swimming pool at Guantanamo), neuropsychiatrist John C. Lilly pioneered today’s modern float tank concept as part of his research into sensory deprivation back in the 1950s.

Lilly spent a decade experimenting with the positive mental health effects of sensory deprivation, even going so far as dosing up on then-legal LSC before taking a soak in a special tank filled with Epsom salt-rich, skin-temperature water that blocked out both light and sound. “I believe that in our culture we need certain socially accepted places where we don't answer the telephone, we don't have to answer questions, or agree with anyone or anything,” said the good doctor. Years later, ‘floating’ is a wellness crazy from Cape Town to Cape Cod, with dedicated float centres all the rage.

If you need a little alone time and some help turning off the brain box, a float might be just the ticket. Float On Hong Kong is the city’s first Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (R.E.S.T) centre, offering modern float tanks in a blissfully acid and waterboarding-free setting. Health benefits of floating include the reduction of mental stress, blood pressure, and cortisol levels, and the improvement of sleep quality and jetlag recovery. Located in the heart of the city Float On features four DreamPods; each is filled with 500kg of Epsom salt and water to offer a light and sound-free, zero gravity-like environment that’s sure to take off the edge of modern living.

Think of it as putting your brain on standby.
