Floating and Relationships

Floating can be a bonding experience between couples.

That doesn’t mean couples share an isolation tank when they float. What it means is they can share experiences and use those experiences to bring them closer together. It is possible to use time in an isolation tank to deepen and strengthen your relationship with your partner.

How can your floating session strengthen your relationship?

1. Peace and serenity

The effects of a floating session are deeply personal. Couples can forge a closer bond though when they share what they experience in an isolation tank. They can discuss how it affected them and any benefits they enjoy afterward – such as a clear mind or a feeling of peace. Partners can move the discussion along through asking questions about the session. It allows each partner to figure out exactly what they learned from their experience and see how their significant other also responded to that environment. Exploring these feelings with each other can help them recreate those feelings in their home.

2. Answers to questions

Floating often coincides with efforts at soul searching. People hope to find answers to deep questions or troubling questions inside the safe confines of an isolation tank. Answers are not simply a means of satisfying curiosity. They can be a cure for serious problems. Couples can use floating sessions to seek out answers for questions related to their relationship. They can share personal moments of inspiration or revelation with each other. It can help them interpret how their individual experiences apply to their relationship.

3. Being open to more floating


Once floating is used to solve one problem, that does not mean it should be discarded like a used towel. Couples can enjoy continued benefits from floating by supporting and encouraging each other to visit an isolation tank often. Attending together can strengthen the bond between partners and help them find support in using floating to improve their lives.
