Why | Flotation Therapy

Elevate your wellbeing with sensory deprivation tank sessions at O-Studio

If you're looking for a unique and effective way to improve your overall wellbeing, flotation therapy may be just what you need. We offer this service as part of our comprehensive approach to wellness and recommend incorporating it into your weekly routine to reap the full benefits.

Here at O-Studio, our flotation therapy involves immersing yourself in a sensory deprivation tank filled with water at a temperature of 36.5 degrees and plenty of Epsom salt. With the option to float with soft light or complete darkness, you’ll experience deep relaxation and inner peace, as the buoyancy and sensory deprivation assists in physical recovery and mental clarity.

Physical Benefits

Flotation therapy helps reduces pressure on the joints and muscles while promoting muscle relaxation and reducing inflammation. Two of its main physical benefits include:

Pain Management

The buoyancy of the water in the sensory deprivation tank takes the pressure off the joints and muscles, allowing the body to relax and reduce pain. Additionally, the high concentration of Epsom salt in the water can help reduce inflammation and ease sore muscles. One study found that floats provided positive changes in patients presenting with chronic pain complaints, improving severe perceived pain intensity and ability to fall asleep.

Athletic Recovery

Athletes often use flotation therapy as a form of recovery after intense training or competitions. The buoyancy of the water can help reduce muscle soreness and inflammation and the relaxation benefits can aid in recovery and injury prevention.

Mental Health Benefits

In addition to the proven physical benefits, flotation therapy can also have powerful mental and emotional benefits. During a float session, you’re able to disconnect from the outside world and focus on your internal thoughts and feelings, which can lead to a greater sense of self-awareness and inner peace. Two of the main mental benefits include:

Stress Relief

This is one of the primary benefits of flotation therapy. The environment created by the tank allows the body to relax deeply, reducing stress and promoting a sense of calm. Studies have shown that flotation therapy is a good tool for countering the effects of stress in relation to physiological, wellbeing and performance measures.

Mental Clarity and Creativity

During your session, your mind will begin to clear and enter a meditative state. This can result in improved mental clarity and creativity, as the mind is free from distractions and able to focus. Many people report increased creativity and problem-solving abilities after a flotation therapy session.


All the mentioned benefits culminate in better sleep quality. Flotation therapy, relaxation and stress reduction contribute to a rejuvenating night's sleep, making it an experience with something to offer everyone.
