What is Float Therapy?

Floatation therapy also known as floating, sensory deprivation or R.E.S.T (restricted environmental stimulation therapy) involves lying in a room filled with 11 inches of water highly concentrated with 1000 lbs. of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salts. This creates such a high level of buoyancy that you are basically in a zero gravity environment. The water temperature is 93.5 degrees plus or minus .5 degrees. This is the exact temperature of your skin therefore you do not feel the water on your skin further increasing the feeling of weightlessness. The float room is sound and light proof which serves to improve the R.E.S.T. environment. It is the ultimate unplugged experience. Once you have let go the alpha and beta brain waves slow down and you achieve a deep, relaxing and rejuvenating meditative state.

Can I float with my period?

Who should not float?

How are the rooms kept clean and disinfected?

There are 1000 lbs. of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt dissolved in each of our float rooms. The high level of saline creates an eviorment that no known microorganism can survive in. After each session the entire volume of the solution is pumped out and filtered through a filtration and sterilization system three times utilizing ultra-violent light and H2O2. UV is the safest most efficient sterilization system available.

Can more than one person float in a tank at a time?

No, only one person per float per room.

What should I do to prepare for a float?

Avoid caffeine or energy drinks for several hours before floating. Eat a light meal about an hour before your float. Don’t shave or wax immediately prior to floating as the salt may irritate the fresh skin.

Will my skin wrinkle?

No. Unlike fresh water the water in float rooms contains high levels of salt so it doesn’t rob your skin of salt which causes the wrinkles. In fact floating leaves your skin soft and silky.

Is it private?

Absolutely. You float in your own individual room. Each room has its own shower and dressing area.

How long are float sessions?

Can I Drown?
