About Float Therapy
Float Therapy involves relaxing in an environment free of sensory input while laying weightless in a private sea of high density Epsom Salt solution, allowing ideal conditions for mental and physical rest and healing.
The solution creates a Zero Gravity Environment,
Relieving back and joint related pains.
How It Works
Six Quick Steps To Enjoy Your Session
Take a PreFloat Rinse:
This is to limit any contaminants from getting into the water, body oils, lotions, deodorants, etc.
Dry Your Face!
Drying your face and pulling your hair back help to avoid having to touch your face while floating, although a small hand towel and fresh water spray bottle are provided in the tank.
Ear Plugs In!
We provide silicone ear plugs and strongly recommend using them. Some guests choose to float without earplugs, but most choose to and find them to be extremely helpful.
No not literally. Take your time stepping into the tank. We recommend sitting down in the water then laying back. Once bouyant, adjust the lighting and audio to your preference.
For guests with a history of neck issues, we offer "The Float Halo," a small floaty that fits the head and offers additional support. Adjusting arm positions while in session can also help with comfort levels. Not to worry though, we will walk through each step when you come in.
Get Your Float On:
Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly, each float session is different in its own way. Relax, enjoy the session, focus on your breath, and enjoy whatever intention you may have set for yourself for that session.
Why It Works
Relax the body and the brain will follow...
Limiting all external sensory input allows the body to completely relax into the session, creating a deep calming effect on the mind.
Deep value comes not just from floating in a zero gravity environment, but through process of sensory deprivation.
Every guest has full control over their experience, with the options for lighting, music and keeping the tank lids or doors open. You are in a private suite throughout your session with a shower attached in the room.
RESTRICTED ENVIRONMENTAL STIMULATION THERAPY
The water contains 1,000lbs of Epsom Salt which creates a zero gravity water. Zero Gravity means fast pain relief to tension related pain. Studies have shown that magnesium helps facilitate healthy heart rhythms, normalize blood pressure, relax muscles, and is a major part of over 300 major bodily functions.
Float therapy is not just for "relaxing because you're stressed." The float experience is also for those looking for creative expansion and an opportunity to gain insight, promote self-awareness, and explore themselves. It is a place to disconnect from life so you're able to reconnect with your true self.
Improve Your Sleep
Guests frequently report obtaining a much deeper sleep the night of floating and often several days after. Clinical studies have shown an improvement in sleep efficiency with magnesium. (1)
Unplug and Meditate
Guests often say "I CAN"T MEDITATE!" Not to worry, the process of Floating allows your mind and body to relax and limit external distractions. With no distractions, the opportunity to observe yourself in presence comes easily to most.
