Floatation Tanks, which used to be called sensory deprivation tanks, have been on the rise over the past five years. This year, there will likely be over 450 float tanks between the US and Canada, and the number is only rising.

Graham and Ashkahn, who are deeply involved in the float industry, will be presenting on the most recent state and federal regulations that have been implemented, and on those are in development. They will also cover recent float sanitation research, and will be touching briefly on the most recent research into floatation as a practice.

This presentation is intended for people just learning about float tanks, and those who are already familiar with them and looking to learn about the most recent developments in this swiftly growing niche.
