Sensory deprivation tanks in the TL

  • 25 February 2014

You, sir, are too connected.

Text, email, Secret (that's a thing, right?).

Plus, you know, gravity.

Unplug with Float Matrix, stalwart purveyors of sensory deprivation tank therapy in the Tendernob.

In a nutshell, we're talking floating on a ribbon of water so saline that you can't sink, blocking out the lights and sounds of the world and having some dedicated you-time (a whole hour of it).

Tucked into a Hyde St. basement, the space is relaxed — think yoga studio.

What you do when arrive: Hit the shower. Stow your gear. Then climb into one of their four tanks.

Instantly, your spine relaxes, distractions vanish and, best of all, absolutely nothing happens.

It's like hitting the reset button on your computer, as FM's owner puts it. The background junk that's been slowing things down disappears, and you come out fresh. Like a baby.

More efficient than sleep.

But don't expect any cinematic hallucinations. This is about clearing your psychological cache.

And don't worry: when you’re done, the weight of the real world will be right where you left it.
