Imagine 90 minutes of utter relaxation in a sensory-deprivation tank: floating peacefully in warm, heavily salted water, with no sights, no sounds, no smells. That’s the only thing on the menu at Float House in Gastown, and it’s been proving immensely popular. The five tanks are in constant use, filled by folks wanting to relieve stress, lower blood pressure and recover from injuries. A float tank is also ideal for meditating, visualizing and fostering creativity. Who’d have guessed that 90 minutes of nothing could be so enriching?
