What is a flotation tank?
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 have experienced this and its just so relaxing :-)

Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond to say thank you to all those who work and worked at Caroline’s Café in Key West Florida. I ate there 4 to 5 evenings a week on my way to work and they looked after me so very well. If you ever visit Key West swing by Caroline’s on the 300 Block of Duval Street and have a bite to eat or just have a drink at the Tiki Bar there :-)
As of June 2014 this dreadful private mental health hospital Uplands (Owned by Care Tech) is being investigated by Fareham Safeguarding Team and the CQC. I will not go into details of my complaints regarding Wilful Neglect, Neglect By Omission and Institutional Neglect due to ongoing investigation, but here is a short video and slide show of the shameful filth and squalor 4 of the seriously mentally ill residents / clients / patients are living in! It is a dirty run down building anyway and care there is extremely poor. Of course its UK Tax Payers that are footing the bill to make private companies rich off the backs of our mentally ill. Uplands as it stands at this moment in time is a disgrace to health care and a disgrace to our country by letting down vulnerable adults who need help and leaving them to rot in such dreadful places. Its how I imagine a workhouse looked or how drug addicts live. It certainly does not represent what I know to be a hospital! Care Tech have some great sound bites too like “Extraordinary Days Every Day” Yeah right!!
