the floating experience

Floating provides a unique opportunity to disconnect from the five senses and turn inward for a truly relaxing experience. You'll step into a spacious, enclosed tub with about 10 inches of water, warmed to your external body temperature. As you lie back into the water, you'll float effortlessly with over 1000 pounds of salt to keep you afloat. You can choose to keep the lights on or off, and listen to music or relish in silence, as you drift into a sense of comfort and stillness. 

Float therapy is known by many names - restricted environmental stimulus therapy, sensory deprivation, sensory isolation, isolation tanks, and more. But we just like to call it floating. We don't believe you have to remove all sensory factors entirely to see benefits, so we strive to create an environment that's comfortable for YOU. That may mean you like to have the lights on or off, and you might want music on or off, and you might even bring your own audio. We just want you to float.

Benefits

Floating has many benefits, ranging from relaxation to targeting common health issues to an overall sense of wellbeing. As you float, your body will be fully supported, alleviating any pressure points. For those with chronic pain, it can be a life changer. Further, the mental break you'll get by floating is unlike any other. It opens the gateway towards a single point of focus, allowing meditation or a calm mind to come with ease. 

Floating is also known as "sensory deprivation" or "restricted environmental stimulation technique (REST)". It is known to lower cortisol (the stress hormone), lower blood pressure, dial down the "fight or flight" response, reduce bodily stress, release endorphins and dopamine.
