Your body absorbs the magnesium from the salt, correcting any magnesium deficiencies, and and and pulls toxins from the body (I recently learned 2nd to vitamin D, people) are magnesium deficiency.

The tank is where I go where all sense of vision and sound is completely gone, disappeared, next to impossible to accomplish this without the use of this brilliant, older with a hint of modern-day technology: Float therapy.
Picture a place with no distractions, and no noise pollution takes over when having quiet time.
Peace and Tranquility
Your thoughts can even be distracting at times. I feel like it is trying to organize a filing cabinet shoved full, nothing in proper order, papers sticking out everywhere.
When our eyes are open, we have many distractions as well. However, television, cell phones and computer use become the worst distractions overwhelmingly.
We all end up filling our days with tons of distractions, and it's impossible not to in this high-paced technological society we live in. Meditation helps, but I still get off course, but float therapy is a significant booster.
This "Tank" is called: Sensory Deprivation Tanks or Float Tanks.
I first learned about these tanks five years ago now. One afternoon, I listened to the Jason Ellis show on serious SiriusXM, his guest, Joe Rogan, explained how float therapy has many benefits for the mind and body.
He said the tanks are usually about four feet wide by four feet high and eight feet long. Then, 10 inches of water is added with 1000 pounds of Epsom salts.
The water temperature is 34 degrees Celsius or 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit, the same as body temperature.
So when you go and lay in these tanks, you float, and when the door is closed, all sense of vision and sound is gone. It feels like you're swimming in midair, nothing except you and your brain now in a therapy float.
Sessions last anywhere from one and a half hours to unlimited.
First, the float attendant explained history a bit, Dr. John C. Lilly, who invented The Tank in 1954 at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He started to discover float therapy, and what he had prophesied, he would find many benefits.
