Floatation therapy is also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy, or REST, as it creates an almost sensory-free environment in which the effects of gravity, temperature, light and sound sensations are removed. This frees your brain from interpreting incoming messages so it can focus on resetting the body’s physiology back to normal levels – including a high blood pressure

Floatation therapy is the most powerful stress relief technique known. Floating has been shown many times (and in controlled studies) compared to bed rest is the most relaxing experience on earth. It has been said that just one hour of floating can have the restorative effect of four hours of deep sleep.

Floatation involves lying in a light-proof, sound-insulated tank containing a shallow, ten-inch deep pool of warm water in which around 700 lbs of Epsom Salts (magnesium sulphate) are dissolved. This forms a super-saturated solution of saline which is kept at a constant skin temperature of 93.5 oF (34.5 oC).
The float solution is more buoyant than the Dead Sea and you remain suspended on top rather like a Champagne cork bobbing on the ocean, to neutralise many of the effects of gravity. 
It’s estimated that 90% of all brain activity is concerned with the effects of gravitational pull on the body, such as correcting posture, maintaining balance and constricting arteries to prevent blood pressure from dropping when you are standing.
The floatation water is kept at a constant skin temperature and the tank screens out all light and sound. This frees your brain from most of its usual sensory distractions and allows it to more easily generate the Theta waves associated with profound relaxation, meditation, creative thought and feelings of serenity.

"when you float one has immediately freed up very large masses of neurons from the necessity of constant computations"
