The benefits of sensory deprivation tanks are no secret: relaxation, deep meditation, soothing chronic muscle pain, increased athletic performance, and an overall sense of well being, but until now these benefits came at a hefty financial cost.
Zen Float has created an isolation tank that can be self assembled and is cheaper than its competition. Ideally it is paving the way for higher accessibility and lowered costs in the industry. Much lighter than traditional models, the Zen Float Tent will weigh a little more than a water bed once you add the epsom salt and water.
Zen Float is running a Kickstarter to fund their idea, check it out for more details on the product. Whether you can afford to pre-order your own tank or not, it’s awesome to support a company that is hopefully going to make a huge difference for the collective consciousness.
In the last 40 years, the positive effects of floating have been scientifically documented and studied though hundreds of research studies. Papers have appeared in publications such as: The American Journal of Psychology, The American Journal of Social Psychology and Science Magazine.The benefits are unquestionable. What is questionable is why isn’t everyone doing it? Floating is gaining more attention in the media with advocates like Joe Rogan, Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, John Lennon, Kris Kristofferson and Robin Williams.
Typically float tanks are in the $10K-30K mark, with the least expensive costing $4,500. We have priced the Zen float tent at a mere $1,700 (and discounts to our backers). Why? We want to get a lot more people floating! An average session at a float center costs $70, and floating once a week would cost around $3,600 a year. The Zen Float Tent allows you to float at your convenience, as much as you want, in the privacy of your own home.
