John Dickerson of CBS This Morning Discusses Sensory Deprivation on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert

In a special preview of upcoming news, John Dickerson explores floatation therapy with CBS News Report sensory deprivation tanks ( starting at 6:10 in the above video).

CBS This Morning Anchor John Dickerson recently stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for a chat about sensory deprivation. A growing trend in health and relaxation, Floatation Therapy is on the rise, buoyed in part by athletes and celebrities’ love of floating, as well as everyday people looking to relieve stress, ease pain, and enjoy heightened relaxation and mindfulness. If you’re new to floating, you may be wondering what floating in a sensory deprivation tank is really like.

We’re about to find out about a floaters’ first experience in a new CBS This Morning segment featuring morning show anchor John Dickerson’s experiment with floatation therapy scheduled to air Wednesday, April 25th, 2018.

At Lift, we’re always excited to see float therapy, also known as sensory deprivation, featured and discussed in the news, and this past week didn’t disappoint!

Unplugging from technology for 60 minutes in the float tank and becoming what he calls “the 19th Century” John Dickerson, Dickerson previews his experience with sensory deprivation, describing it in his interview with Colbert as “calming, controlled, concentrated meditation,” and expands on the healing benefits he experienced.
