Our Mission


Our purpose is to provide a healing space for those suffering from tension, stress, and nervous exhaustion. The sensory deprivation tank provides a pain free environment for those who experience chronic pain and for those who would like to improve their performance in all areas. Also for those who need a peaceful place for deep meditation. 

How We do this

We do this by freeing the person from sensory distractions and even earthly gravity. Our Tucson floatation tank has 850lbs of Epsom Salt (which has high concentrations of magnesium) and 12 inches of water at body temperature. The float tank itself is sound proof, light proof, and the salt water provides an anti-gravity environment. The isolation tank gives an experience of complete weightlessness as if one was in the womb or floating in space. 



We are proud to be members of the Fibromyalgia Floatation Project. If you have Fibromyalgia and are interested in floatating and being a part of our research program, please contact us for details on how to participate.



What is unique about Samadhi Tanks?

For over forty years Samadhi Tanks have been designed with optimal functionality and elegant simplicity in mind, focusing on creating the best possible float experience for the user. This means providing an environment with as few distractions as possible, a space of empty nothingness in which the floater is supported in entering the space of silence.

We place a great deal of attention on providing this simplicity.

Q - How should I prepare for this?

A- Flotation Therapy is perhaps the easiest pastime imaginable. The only precaution that you should take is you should not shave, wax, or tan at all on the day of your Float session. The high salt content of the water can be irritating to freshly shaved, tanned or waxed skin. We will provide liquid bandages if you have any small cuts or wounds. 

Please do not wear any hair or skin products prior to floating. If you have hair coloring that has not set, you cannot float until the color is set and nothing washes out in the shower. Try not to eat about an hour before the float and have an empty stomach and bladder. Avoid caffeine 4 hours prior to your Float.

There is a private shower in your room. You will need to shower before hand in order to wash all oils from hair and skin directly before entering the floatation tank. You will also need to shower immediately afterwards to wash the salt from your body. 

We provide all towels, shampoos and soaps for you so you don't need to bring anything. We will also provide all the small items needed like a blow dryer, comb , cotton swabs, and light snacks if you get hungry.  


Q -I'm claustrophobic. How will this affect me in the tank? 

A - This is a common concern, but you are in complete control and can keep the door open, lights on and get out when you see fit. It does not feel enclosed whatsoever once inside. You can start with the door fully open, then try half open, and when comfortable close the door completely if you choose. Most of our clients who are claustrophobic discover that once inside and settled, any feelings of claustrophobia completely vanish. 


Q - Is there any risk of drowning?

A - The high buoyancy of the salt water makes it impossible for the individual to go beneath the surface. Once settled it is only possible to touch the bottom of tank with great effort. There are no reported drowning accidents with floating.


Q - Can I float if I am pregnant? 

A - Absolutely! In fact heavily pregnant women probably get more relief from floating than anyone else. Just lying on a bed can be extremely uncomfortable for women in the later stages of pregnancy due to the massive gravitational strain placed on the body. This can be a magical haven to which pregnant women can escape. We just recommend that one wait until their body has adjusted to being pregnant before trying any new activities. Therefore, floating should be avoided during the first trimester. 


Q - What if I can't swim?

A - There is no need to know how to swim. You will be in no more than 12inchs of water. The 800lbs of Epsom salt will keep you buoyant for you will not need to keep yourself up. The water will do this for you effortlessly.

What we use to keep our water crystal clear, clean and safe

Our tanks have 850+ lbs of Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom salts) in 12 inches of water!  This brings our salt concentration to nearly 35%.  The effects of high levels of salt for sanitation have been known for hundreds of years.

Dr. Oscar Pancorbo, a microbiologist and Director of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) addressed the issue of microorganism viability in high salt environments.  He says, "no pathogenic organisms can survive salt concentrations above approximately 10 percent".  Our tank concentration exceeds this 3 times over!

According to Dr. David K. Ryan, Professor of Chemistry at University of MA, "The only organisms that could possibly live in this environment are halophilic or halotolerant bacteria that have adapted to high salt concentrations and are found in the environment at places like the Great Salt Lake or the Dead Sea.  These organisms are not pathogenic and do not pose a threat to humans."

While we ask that people shower and wash makeup, oil, etc. from their body, sometimes it still gets in the water.  In addition to the natural cleansing properties of Epsom salt, we also have a pool filter system.

All the water in the tank is circulated multiple times between every user to pull out any organic impurities in the water.  A 35% solution of hydrogen peroxide (h202) to help break down the organic matter so the filters do an even better job of keeping the water sparkling clean.

Why we don't use chlorine

Needless to say, floating is one of the safest therapies around.  Unlike a swimming pool, hot tub, whirlpool, etc., we will not use chlorine in our tanks to "help" kill bacteria.

Every year there are deaths due to chlorine and research is beginning to show more dangers linked to dioxin (a toxic byproduct of chlorine).  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found dioxin to be 300,000 times more potent as a carcinogen than DDT.

We are often asked if our tanks have the same chemistry as salt water pools, while salt swimming pools are becoming more popular, it is simply another way to add chlorine to the pool.  The 3% salt solution in the pool is not enough to maintain sanitation, but simply used to create a chemical reaction that creates chlorine in the water instead of it being added directly.  You will never find chlorine in our tanks.

Together with the Department of health we are here to make sure your float experience is relaxing and one of the safest experiences around!
