Sensory-deprivation tanks finally let you be alone with your thoughts, such as "What time is it, assuming that time isn't a meaningless construct?" and "Do people still like parades?" Get peace of mind with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $37 for one sensory-deprivation float (up to a $75 value)
  • $99 for three sensory-deprivation floats (up to a $225 value)

Inside the 6'x8'x7' tanks, guests lie face-up in 10 inches of warm saltwater, letting their minds wander without the distractions of light, sound, or gravity. Many visitors use the 60-minute session to meditate, and others simply relax or catch up on sleep.

Zazen

At Zazen, students relax their bodies and focus their minds during sessions of Zen Buddhist seated meditation, the soothing practice for which the center is named. But both Zazen locations work to cultivate calm with other services as well. Sensory-deprivation tanks block out distracting external stimuli as guests float in 10 inches of warm saltwater, a practice many say helps them grow their awareness of the present moment. Massage sessions focus on freeing the body from tension, so it can be experienced as spaciousness rather than constraint. Yoga classes also help guests become mindful, filling hearts and limbs with enough calm energy to quiet a bawling infant with a single, whispered "shhh."
