Serene Dreams is a one of a kind health and wellness center that specializes in stress relief and relaxation therapy. We invite you to experience true relaxation and rejuvenation through floatation therapy at our state-of-the-art float center in Kearny, New Jersey. Floatation is also known as flotation, float tank therapy, or isolation tank therapy.
What is Floatation Therapy?
Floatation is a uniquely immersive therapeutic experience that enhances your mental and physiological health. It has its roots in the scientific research of sensory deprivation. In 1954 a neuroscientist named John Lilly found that the distraction-free environment of his isolation tank led to incredibly enhanced states of mental relaxation. In the late 1970s Peter Suedfeld and Roderick Borrie of the University of British Columbia began experimenting on the therapeutic benefits of flotation/isolation tank usage. This technique was called “Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy” (REST).
Inside an Isolation Tank
When you step into our specially-designed float tanks, a precise solution of water and Epsom salts, calibrated to the body’s temperature, 98 degrees Fahrenheit, awaits. This carefully controlled environment inside the tank (quite similar to the famed waters of the Dead Sea, one of the world’s first natural health resorts) creates buoyancy that allows you to float effortlessly on the surface of the water. In this zero gravity environment you are totally free of distractions. Your muscles can relax completely, your mind can become quiet and still, and you can achieve a feeling of weightlessness and utter relaxation that cannot be found elsewhere.
Sessions in our floatation tanks usually last one hour.
