After just an hour in a float tank, Gloria Morris knew she wanted to own a float tank. Being too cost prohibitive to be put in her basement at home, Gloria created a business plan and opened her first location 9 months later. Now two years down the road, Gloria is about to open the first of its kind in Northwest Indiana, Float Sixty.
Float tanks are used by high profile CEO’s, Athletes, celebrities and anyone who just to reset their mind, body, and spirit.The primal human connection between flotation and relaxation is the principle behind one of the most inventive tools of 20th-century neuroscience: the isolation or sensory-deprivation tank. Devised in the 1950s by Dr. John C. Lilly, these dark saltwater tanks were used to isolate the brain from stimuli — light and sound, but also, to an extent, gravity — to get a clearer read of the brain at rest.
Floating, Lilly realized, helped to peel back the brain’s learned layers to its elemental core and reprogram it. “Suddenly all of the stimulation of holding one upright against gravity disappears,” he wrote. “One’s cerebellum is now freed for uses other than balancing the body.” Rather than trying to quiet my brain in order to float, I could use floating to achieve a sort of Zen stillness. Inner peace, divined by salt water…. from New York Times
The intended open date is Feb 13, 2018. I personally will be waiting in line!
