    If you are looking into sensory deprivation experiences I suggest reserving more than an hour inside. I went to Oakland Floats for the hour massage/hour tank combo, which was nice, but extended time in the tank will allow for a heavier experience if you are up to it. Always knowing I had been inside the tanks for less than an hour made it difficult to lose myself fully in space time. Still a worth wile experience though, I’d do it again. I hear good things about Float Matrix in SF too.

    I know what you mean. The place I go to is 90 minute floats, though I’m usually running a little late, so I only get 75-80 minutes. That last 20 minutes is usually the best part. I’d like to try something more ambitious one time, like a three hour float just to see if I can do it, and what it feels like.
