Oh god no, YUK. They are back. And now the stupid Floatation Tank concept is ARTY. And apparently so stylishly holistic and relaxing that we should all be rushing out to whore ourselves for the down payment on one.
Really, i thought float-tanks went in the Eighties and now there were only a few left in rancid old suburban “relaxation centres” or in the back room of one’s local Chakra joint.
Or is this just me? And everyone else actually adores the experience of floating in the dark inside a giant womb/coffin like thing listening to whale music.
My experience was flawed. Firstly, I didn’t relax at all because my Mars in Virgo had my fists clenched the whole time just at the thought of what could be in the water. Parasites, bacteria, the whole Tinea family reunion. And then of course, this is not an experience for the even faintly claustrophobe. They prop the lid up if you want but then it takes away from the out-of-mind experience. As did the trucks that i could hear rumbling past above the dolphins/seagull squawk muzak.
However, maybe there are some peeps out there who love float tanks? Who would in fact, money and space being no object, want this luxury float tank in their house pronto. Please tell all and with your Sun/Moon/Rising Sign/other astro details if you like so we can track any patterns emerging.
Have any of you ever emerged from one, i don’t know, channelling aliens or talking in Sanskrit? Rebirthed? Any benefits whatsoever?
