500 kg of Epsom salts are added to 1000 litres of water, creating a 30 cm deep solution, which is heated to 35.5 degrees C (skin temperature).
The temperature of the water means that once you are settled in the tank, it is virtually impossible to distinguish between parts of the body that are in contact with the water, and those that aren’t, in effect “fooling” the brain into believing that the person is floating in mid-air.
I am absolutely in LOVE with every single one of these photographs….they are all beautiful curvy and yes real….I don’t mean real because they are curvy I mean real as in not Photoshopped or edited….They have a natural beauty…..WOW
