~ A.k.a: isolation tanks, float pods, floatation tanks, float cabins, float rooms, or sensory deprivation tanks ~
General info about floatation tanks and the two tanks at One Love Float.
What is a float tank
Floatation tanks come in all shapes and sizes, and vary in style and visual "eye candy", but the shape and form have little impact on the quality of the float experience (aside from enclosed and open tanks).
The common dimensions for the sensory deprivation tanks are 7ft long, 4 - 5ft wide and 4 - 5ft tall. The tank contains 10 - 11 inches of water with 750 – 1000 lbs. of salt depending on the tank. Ocean water is about 3 percent salt, while float tanks are about 35 percent salt.
We love our tanks so much we gave them names.
Meet ‘Haoka' Samadhi – She is our Closed Tank
Samadhi refers to the highest stage in meditation, in which a person experiences oneness with the universe.
Haoka (Heyoka) is thought of as being backwards-forwards, upside-down, inside out, or contrary in nature as a master teacher. She allows us to look at things through a different perspective and mirrors it back to us to see the other side.
Haoka is a water shamanic practitioner, who's medicine is silence and clarity in the dark. A deep connection to ancestral insights that guides healing comes through expanding consciousness. It is simple and that is it's wisdom.
The Samadhi float tank has been around since the conception of Floating. There is a reason it has been around from the very beginning. Sam creates a consistently smooth float to allow you to explore and discover.
For over forty years Samadhi Tanks have been designed with optimal functionality and elegant simplicity in mind, focusing on creating the best possible float experience for the user.
This is Lee and Glenn Perry who make Samadhi tanks…and give the BEST hugs ever!
Meet ‘Ed’ – He is our Open Float tank.
(He is great for anyone that has claustrophobia or limited mobility)
Calgary's ONLY open float tank!
Allow Ed to guide your theta experience while surfing the waves of creative thought, free association and inspiring renewal. This open tank room has all the traditional delights of a traditional closed tank with its own freedom personality.
A compassionate shamanic practitioner. He's got the galaxy in his hand and his feet rooted on earth. He embodies balance; the master of both worlds. An Atlantean in spirit, he heals with Light through the Pleiadian water and our connection to everything. He is named after the legendary surfer from Hawaii whos' mantra was "Eddie Would Go" because he was always in flow with his heart and followed his passion (He would surf ANY wave). It's a space people find their flow. Let him inspire you.
Named after the Hawaiian surf legend and hero, Eddie Aikau, and inspired by his inner strength when no one else would or could. Let his words inspire you: Ed Would Go.
Eddie Aikau was also the first lifeguard hired to work the North Shore in Maui. The local saying "Eddie Would Go," refers to his stoke to take on big waves that other surfers would shy away from and his courage to make a rescue in impossible situations.
