60 minutes of nothing 


Sensory deprivation consists of creating an environment without any external stimuli to your senses, which is nearly impossible to achieve. Thankfully in 1954 a clever neuroscientist named John C. Lilly invented the sensory deprivation tank and here at ReEnergize Cusco, we just happen to have one! 


What is it?

It is essentially a large bath tub, with 25cm of water inside and 500kg of Epsom salt. This creates a solution that is extremely boyaunt, in which you lie about half in and half out of the water.


The water is kept at the average temperature of your skin (37 degrees), which allows you to lose track of where your body ends and the water starts. The pod is sound proof and when you turn the light off, it is complete darkness.


No gravity, no touch, no sight and no sound. Just pure nothing. 

How does it work? 

Inside the tank is an environment free from sensory input, the muscular-skeletal system and sympathetic nervous system wind down into a state of deep relaxation and serenity, in which your body and mind can heal and replenish. 


What are the benefits of a sensory deprivation tank? 

Spending time in a sensory deprivation tank is said to offer many health benefits, including inducing a clear state of mind, improving concentration and creativity as well promoting an overall state  of relaxation. 


Who can benefit from sensory deprivation

Literally everybody, it allows us to take 60 minutes out of our busy schedules to do nothing apart from reconnect with ourselves.
