    Think Tank Flotation in Newport KY

    Has anyone been to Think Tank Flotation in Newport? If not Newport has anyone been to a Flotation Tank at another location? Thoughts?

    For anyone not familiar (I'm learning), the tanks are typically sealed rooms or tanks filled with a large amount of water. The tanks are also filled with a very very large amount of epsom salts, usually around 1,000 lbs or more. The salts in the water allows you to float on top of the water. It's supposed to a very relaxing process and is still fairly new to the area.

    I bought my wife a gift card to float at the one in Mariemont. She described the experience as odd and couldn't decide how much she did or didn't liked it; however, she felt it helped with both her arthritis, tendonitis and general joint/muscle pain (we work out a lot and are always sore). She thought it was hard to keep water out of your ears with the provided plugs and that she would take her own next time. In the end she concluded that it was beneficial enough to do it periodically, but she probably wouldn't do it all that regularly.

    What is the cost of a typical visit?

    Got it, thanks for the feedback. In looking at their website and Facebook page, the one in Newport has only great reviews that I saw. Now I'm not sure if they delete the bad ones or anything like that but they had almost exclusively good reviews.

    May have to check this out at some point but may hold off for now. Not sure how well I will handle the sealed off tank aspect but I'm kinda curious to find out.

    I don't love the idea of being closed in that thing for 60 minutes, but if it works like they say I would really benefit from it.
