Flotation Therapy

Leaping Deer Ranch has a Sensory Deprivation Therapy Tank available for flotation sessions.  



Floatation Tanks, also known as Isolation Tanks, were originally created by John C. Lilly in the 1950s to test the effects of sensory deprivation. These tanks are now used for a variety of reasons including meditation, relaxation and natural healing.

Health & Wellness

  • People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more.
  • Studies indicate that floating increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterward.
  • Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt.


  • Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound.
  • Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state.
  • After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there with hardly any effort at all.

Self Improvement

  • People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating.
  • With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing.

How it works:

A person will lie inside the floatation tank while floating in Epsom Salt water which is kept at normal skin temperature, 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Subjects are completely isolated and undistracted from the rest of the world as the tank is soundproof and completely dark.

While in a floatation tank, outside stimulations such as sound, sight, touch, gravity, and temperature are restricted as much as possible, allowing the subject floating in the tank to quickly enter into a deep state of relaxation. This technique known as "Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy" (and commonly referred to as REST), was named by Peter Suedfeld and Roderick Borrie who began experimenting on the therapeutic benefits of floatation tank usage in the late 1970s.

The Epsom Salt also benefits those floating in the tank by helping to detoxify the body. It also provides the body with Magnesium which is absorbed through the skin. Magnesium is an essential element to the human body in which adequate amounts are commonly not obtained from diet alone.
