Fringe medicine
A tank filled with water maintained at body temperature in which an individual floats without tactile, auditory or visual cues. Some have used these tanks for meditation, as they believe it enhances their meditation when sensory deprivation is reduced to a minimum. Isolation tanks are divided into flotation (wet) tanks and isolation (dry) chambers or Samahdi tanks.
