Floating has a range of emotional, mental and physical benefits. These include reducing body aches and pain, helping with inflammation, eliminating toxins, and assisting with insomnia, depression and anxiety.

  • Epsom salts are known for their therapeutic and calming effect on the nervous system. Sodium, potassium and calcium levels are balanced in a flotation tank.
  • War veterans are commonly finding release from PTSD with flotation tanks.
  • Float tanks have been known to assist with chronic aches and pain and sporting injuries.
  • Increased creativity, focus and concentration, and improved relationships can result from floating. Meditation is more intense, and becomes easier.

Float tanks are the ultimate relaxation experience!

Once you have tried floating for a while you may become hooked! If you are a regular floater, it may be more convenient and cost effective to purchase a residential tank for use at home. This way you can float in complete privacy, whenever you like – and for as long as you like!

It is more affordable than you may at first think. If you are a once a week floater, payinging $70 per float, the Zen Float tank will pay for itself after six months. And you can use it as often as you like, in the privacy of your own home!

While the Zen Float Tanks start at $1,850 commercial float tanks can range from $10,000 to $30,000.

Here are some reviews of the more popular residential float tanks.

Zen Float Company was started in April 2014. The owners sought funding in order to bring an affordable residential floatation tank to market.

The tent takes 10 inches of water. It is pitch blackness inside. When you use earplugs, you will hear very little – just your heart beat and maybe your eyelids fluttering. You have total peace and relaxation!

The Zen Float tent comes in three different packages. Hundreds of floaters have purchased these tanks and are now able to float regularly in the comfort of their own homes.


“I love my Zen Float Tent! It’s been great and taken my floating to a whole new level of enjoyment and convenience. The Zen Float Tent is an awesome tool for combatting anxiety & channeling focus. An absolute game changer.” – Dann D

As a Vipassana meditator, I have meditated 1000+ hours in my life. It is hard!  I also have body pain.  The Float Tent eliminates my pain from sitting or kneeling and lets me get into the Theta brain state more easily, more often. ” Christina M
