ST. LOUIS – When I would tell people that I was going to try this new place where you float in a tank in total darkness and complete silence for 90 minutes, I would get two reactions: That sounds blissful, or that sounds torturous.
F.LO.A.T. opened its doors and four float tanks to the public earlier this year, and I was one who couldn’t wait to indulge. With days filled with multitasking, juggling schedules, constantly analyzing information and relentless demands, the idea of doing nothing was welcoming.
That’s what floating is all about, the advertisements say – shutting the world out so your body can rest and heal and your mind can be free and wander.
