The temperature of the water is kept at 93.5° Fahrenheit, the average external temperature of the human body. This is a temperature known as Skin-Receptor Neutral, meaning the water creates no cues for the skin to report as tactile stimulation.
The tanks and the rooms around them are soundproofed to block all noise from the outside world, and light-trapped to create complete and total darkness.
The combination of these elements creates an environment that is free from all external stimulation. Your body responds to this environment by taking a gigantic mental and physical sigh of relief. No longer worried about filtering the outside world to look for potential danger, your production of stress-related hormones drop to almost nothing, your brainwaves lower in frequency to a state associated with mental relaxation and free-thinking, and there is a natural spike in the neurochemicals that makes you happy.
All of this is compounded by the inherent relaxation created by absorbing Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulfate). While used primarily in the float tank to actually make people float, Epsom salt comes with the added benefit of softening skin and hair, cleansing and detoxifying the body, and getting people the magnesium most lack.
