As a multi-hyphenated talent, Joe Rogan is an established figure in Mixed Martial Arts commentary and stand up comedy. He’s known for experimenting with risky activities like taking hallucinogens. It can be said that he’s a man of many talents and hobbies. But among all the other things Rogan has a knack for is sensory deprivation.
If you've ever found yourself in a Joe Rogan podcast app, it won't be unlikely to hear him talk about it. He has talked about being inside the tank in different episodes. Catching the host praise sensory deprivation tanks is actually a part of the Joe Rogan podcast experience! People laud him to be one of the first celebrities to popularize the practice. The host owns his own tank and describes being in it as a vacation from the body. He claims that it is the most important thing that he has used to develop his mind and thinking. Sensory deprivation tanks are typically used for Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST). People go inside a tank full of salt water with the same temperature as the human body where they sit in silence. Studies suggest that the deprivation of senses promote better blood flow to organs and other parts of the body. It lowers blood pressure which is also good for alleviating anxiety. Ultimately, the practice provides a rested feeling and relieving pain. Other celebrities like Steph Curry and John Lennon are also known believers of the practice. Some people and a number of Rogan fans find the practice intriguing, but it comes with a hefty price tag. Each session costs an average of $70 per hour. If you find that pricey, you could try other relaxing alternatives by wearing meditation tech or download relaxation apps for a smaller cost.
