Sensory Reduction, Flotation, & Magnesium
No light. No sound. No temperature gradient. Even gravity doesn't weigh on you when you're floating.
Floating's therapeutic effects come from its three foundational elements: sensory reduction, flotation, and magnesium.
Sensory Reduction Tanks
Float pods limit external sensory input. They maintain both a water and an air temperature consistent to that of the skin, meaning the body is unable to detect the difference between itself and its environment. Pods can be completely dark, to the point you can't see your hand in front of your face, or users can opt for a soft light the color of their choice. The private rooms are completely soundproof; you can literally hear yourself blink. Or if you have a favorite meditation or soundtrack, SYNC's pods have the ability to play that as well.
Think of the pod as housing the computer that is your body: as sight, sound, touch, and smell ‘apps’ shut down, additional power becomes available. How the body uses the extra power depends on what it needs.

Floating has been around since the 50's, so you don't have to take our word on any of this. Studies have shown floating can be helpful for everything from muscle tears and concussions to anxiety and irregular sleep patterns. Mentally, floating can speed up learning, improve memory, and increase creativity.
