I found the following questions online when googling about the benefits of floating, and thought it couldn’t hurt to provide the Easy Float answers to these questions here. And if you’re looking for our answer to the benefits thing, click here to check out the Easy Float bennies page.
What is an isolation tank?
-An Isolation Tank is the same thing as a float tank. A lot of people still refer to floating as sensory deprivation and to float tanks as isolation tanks, we’re cool with all of these terms. A float room or cabin is a float tank that you can stand up inside, a float pod is a float tank where you close a lid and it is kinda dome shaped. There are basically float cabins/rooms, open float pools, pods (just like you’re picturing in your head), and float tanks (kinda coffin shaped), but really when you add 10 inches of water and 1,000lbs. of Epsom Salt you have a float tank, they’re all tanks. To be clear, we like all of the above options for float apparatus, as long as it’s clean, salty, and dark, it’s good to go.
What is a floating session?
-So often Easy Float is mistaken for a white water river floating company, and we’re working on that, but really a float session is like an adult timeout. It is a space created to allow you to let go. When we reduce enough distraction the mind slips into the theta brainwave and quiets the connection between the prefrontal cortex and the amygdala, shuts off the self from the flight or fight part and reduces stress and anxiety, hopefully. Again, a float session is just relaxing for 90 minutes in super salty water in the dark, it’s definitely relaxing.
How much does it cost to build a sensory deprivation tank?
-It’s pretty spendy and the amount of salt in there isn’t cheap either. By all means go for it if that’s what’s calling you, but I definitely recommend coming in for a float first and we’ll be happy to talk about what goes into building a float tank, heck we’ll build one for you if you want us to.

How About All That Floating?
Easy Float is Dedicated to Delivering the Absolute Best Float Experience, and it has been going great. We have had the pleasure of floating a bunch of very cool people in our first couple months and we are excited to continue providing flotation in Denver. We often have described the purpose driving the creation of Easy Float is to provide the Absolute Best Float Experience, and it is, but let’s talk about why we want to provide the float experience in the first place. Stress.
We fully acknowledge that stress is a necessary and unavoidable part of life, but we also realize that too much stress makes life miserable. Floating has many benefits and a lot of folks are utilizing flotation for a variety of different reasons, but we are excited to provide floating as a way to reduce stress. By going into a float tank for 90 minutes to have all the distractions of life reduced, we are able to take the adult time out, to get off of your phone, and hopefully slip into the Theta Brain Wave for at least a short amount of time. When you get there, it’s a great time out and floating into the theta state will hopefully get you a couple days of calm so that you can take on the stress of life. Basically, the benefits of floating are great, whether you’re into the physical benefits of being weightless and surrounded by Magnesium Sulfate for 90 minutes or you’re floating for the chance to take a look behind the door in you mind, we are here for you to take the adult time out that everyone deserves. Thanks for Floating.
