Zero Gravity Tank Allows You To Float Like An Astronaut

Updated: Tuesday, October 22 2013, 12:32 PM CDT

For the third week in a row Gravity starring Austinite Sandra Bullock, has triumphed in theatres. A popular scene being broadcasted on the movie trailer is of Bullock floating aimlessly in space. Have you ever wondered what that may feel like? Well now you can float weightless and free like an astronaut in a flotation tank.

Zero Gravity Institute located at 2919 Manchaca Road is a new business in South Austin. There floatation tanks are filled with 1,200 pounds of Epsom Salts and 10 inches of water at 93.5 degrees.  

As you float your body relaxes putting your mind in a tranquil state. Your endorphins rise and people report a sense of euphoria after an hour session in the flotation tanks. Zero Gravity Institute co-owner Kevin Johnson says time in the tanks aids your body in relaxation and repair.

Prices and packages vary. For more information visit
