What is Floating?

Posted in:


During a float you are suspended effortlessly in a super saturated solution of epsom salt and water within a light and sound controlled environment that reduces sensory stimulation and effectively suspends the effects of gravity on the central nervous system. The water is at skin temperature and after a few minutes you lose the awareness of where the body ends and the water begins. Resting in this unique environment creates profound changes within the
mind/body system and actually improves the overall function of the brain and central
nervous system. After your first float you may think it seems amazing but it’s actually backed by over thirty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance. We have two floatation pods so you can bring a friend !
It sounds pretty interesting – and now you’re ready to float your way to the best you possible. The next step is easy, just find our prices and packages and book a float or Float Package. After your first float you’ll have a pretty good idea what floating is all about (and you’ll love it!), after your second float you will realize you barely scratched the surface with your first float and you start to see the amazing potential in front of you, after your 3rd float you’ll know what floating can really do for you.
