Sensory deprivation at Home

rock_zaozz (@rockzaozz) 8 years ago

So actually im looking for a hot tub for my house and adapt it to make it like a flotation tank
i dont really know how flotation tanks works , i just know they use a lot of magnesium in the solution to make you float.

But it would be awesome having something similar to a flotation tank at home and enter to a deeper state of mind whenever you want.

¿Any Ideas on this? ¿Have you experience sensory deprivation?

Cheers

Uhhh….no, they use 800 lbs. of epsom salt to make you float. You will severely fuck up your hot tub if you try to do that. Best bet is to either go to an actual sensory deprivation tank or just practice meditation. Also, binaural beats help a lot with meditation if you can’t quite get there on your own.

@rockzaozz, Where do you live? Are you sure they don’t have sensory deprivation tanks in any major cities near where you live?

@rockzaozz, I think there is a post somewhere on this site about something similar to sensory deprivation. I think it said to tape half of a long pong ball over each eye and have a light shining on them, then listen to like just static white noise

@chodebalm, @YESS I Found One (The unique xD) i will go there , but the idea was to adapt my hot tub to replicate the effects of a isolation tank , maybe i dont going to use the salt , i will look for alternatives , Cheers


@smortlur51
, Yeah i had read that in a article of cracked (http://www.cracked.com/article/127_5-ways-to-hack-your-brain-into-awesomeness/)
but i think is not the same as sensory deprivation because you dont reach that deep relax state.

“It’s called the Ganzfeld effect, and it works by blocking out most of the signals that go to your brain. It’s the same kind of effect you get when looking into a soft light for a while and lose vision, except at a larger scale.

The sound of the white noise and the light from the outside of the ping pong ball are eventually ignored by your brain. With all those signals out of the picture, your brain has to create its own, and this is where the hallucinations come in.

@rockzaozz, Oh you’re right, it was that article I saw it in. Someone above had mentioned binaural beats, I would definitely check those out

@rockzaozz, you tagged me so I guess you’re asking if I’ve done it?

I’ve never been to one. I almost went, but was in the middle of moving when I found one close by.

I have many times sat in my tub in complete darkness with no sounds, and I sit.

This isn’t like a sensory deprivation tank though – there is the sensation of the tub always hitting some part of my body, and I’m not floating.

Nothing bizarre happens, however, upon doing it while very tired, 1 hour later I am wide awake. Like morning.
