Float Therapy

Physical

  • People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, eliminate chronic pain, and much more.
  • Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood, leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that can last for days.
  • Without fighting gravity or external distractions, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt.

Spiritual

  • Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s a perfect time to reflect on life. Creative and personal insights are not uncommon.
  • Float tanks are like practice spaces for meditation. After about 10-15 minutes of floating, your mind starts  producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that “between waking and sleeping” state.

Learning

  • People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and even drafted whole books while floating.
  • With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is boundless.

What Exactly is a Float Tank?

They go by many names; float tanks, float cabins, float rooms, float pods, open float pools, etc.

Quiet Experience

As innovation continues to thrive in this industry there are sure to be impressive new float tank designs, and of course why wouldn’t it, as floating promotes creativity and innovation i and of itself. There are so many different modalities and practices that are complemented or even enhanced by floating, the future looks bright for many groundbreaking discoveries to enhance re-balance the human body.

No matter what the design of the float tank, the objective is the same; to have a quiet experience void of as much external stimuli as possible. This creates the perfect environment for the body to switch over to the parasympathetic nervous system.

Relax Beyond Measure

In modern society so much of our energy is utilizing our active survival instincts, and it really isn’t as common to have that long drawn out restful time in your typical day. When the body enters into the stress free space of the float tank and becomes blissfully suspended in its healing waters, it can finally relax itself beyond measure. Once shifted out of the fight or flight fast acting state of the mind and body, something that we are all too commonly stuck in, the body will switch over to its natural tendency to heal itself. In this state of restoration, rest, digest, and heal rules the day and the body begins to release beneficial endorphins which aids the body in it’s search for poise and balance.

Large Comfortable Cabins

In our center we have selected some of the most spacious float rooms available. They have 7-foot fiber optic star lit ceilings that twinkle and change colors. You have the option of listening to peaceful meditative music while you enjoy the serenity of your own private float suite. As you lean back and ease into the ten inches of water you will be amazed at how effortlessly you float, and just how spacious our float rooms are. The skin temperature waters will fully support you as you drift into a deep state of relaxation and healing. Your spine will begin to decompress from the stresses of gravity in this zero-gravity environment, further allowing your nervous system to release problematic stuck energy.

The Body Begins To Let Go

With the water at the same temperature as your skin the sensation of touch becomes imperceptible, and the body begins to let go of the chaotic external world. With little to no sound reaching you in this safe environment and when you decide to turn off your lights and allow yourself  to experience perfect darkness, you can take a deep breath knowing that there is nothing that is needed of you at this time in space. You are completely free!

The reason behind bringing yourself into a space that is void of external stimuli is that it allows your body to finally free itself from the perpetual feeling it has of being in some form of danger. It has a natural defense mechanism to stay at high alert if it needs to flee and quickly make decisions. This puts an extra burden on the body mind and spirit which disallows it to relax and address the things that may be negatively effecting it. We used to have a more contemplative winding down at the end of our days and in the modernity of our hectic lives things don’t tend to shut down and relax until we lay our heads on our pillows, if at all. How restful is your sleep?

Luckily the float will help! When we say “float – relax – restore” we mean just that. You’ll have to experience it for yourself.

The Theta State

Relaxation is the Catalyst to the next Phase of Therapy

Above all, this relaxation is the catalyst to the next phase of the therapy which brings you into a deep state, or the theta brain wave state. With no distractions and essentially no interruptions, the body begins to release the neurochemicals that correspond with joy. This is the place that many advanced meditative masters strive to reach, yet you arrive almost effortlessly.

Theta State

It may take a few times to reach Theta state or fully engage the parasympathetic. We strongly suggest to people that they give themselves the chance to experience floating more than a few times. There is a point where you will gain traction and you will likely see the amazing and prolonged benefits of floating begin to assist you through your day.

  • Arrive and check in. We’ll supply you with a robe, slippers, towels, earplugs and everything else you’ll need.
  • We will cover the basics together and answer all of your questions.
  • Wash yourself in a luxurious shower in your private suite before entering the float tank. (You will notice how pure the water is due to our advanced filtration systems we have added to ensure water purity and health before it enters our sanctuary.)
  • After your step into the tank and close the door behind you, gently lie back into the water and float effortlessly.
  • The music and lights are completely under your control from within the float room.
  • When your session is over, the music and lights will gently bring you back from your journey.
  • Step out of the float room and rinse off the salt water. Our vanity room is equipped with hairdryers & other grooming needs.
  • Enjoy a complimentary cup of tea in our lounge while you bask in your post-float glow.

Floating Facts

Added Benefit to Epson Salt

The Epsom salt solution will not prune your skin no matter how long you stay in the float. While used primarily for its ability to suspend people in water, Epsom salt comes with the added benefit of softening skin and hair, along with alleviating chronic stress patterns and pain.

Being Suspended

In addition to the stand-alone physical benefits of soaking in thousands of pounds of Epsom salts, being suspended on a medium that is in between liquid and solid has many health benefits on its own accord. While floating effortlessly it is common to have subtle and profound physical releases from tension patterns that have taken root in our earthbound bodies. Using our infrared sauna in conjunction with the float can be just the thing to help you settle into your float with ease. They pair so well together because, anything that you incorporate to help calm the body into the parasympathetic will likely enhance your float. Infrared saunas do a fantastic job at that.

Neutral Skin Temperature

Neutral skin temperature is kept at 94.5 degrees Fahrenheit which is the average temperature of the skin. This is a temperature known as skin-receptor neutral, meaning the water creates no cues for the skin to report any tactile stimulation.

Clean and Sanitary Environment

Sanitation is a very important component to floating and is not taken lightly among those that operate float centers in the industry. We have taken measures well beyond state regulations to ensure a clean and sanitary environment is in place.

We start at an already volatile environment of 35% Epsom salt. The water then passes through a 1 micron filter which is equivalent to 1/7th of the size of a red blood cell. After that it undergoes a full ozone treatment and then gets dosed with 50-100ppm of hydrogen peroxide. These 2 elements combined form what is called peroxone which is supercharged as the water travels through a UV lamp. UV lamps are designed to obliterate anything in the path of their photon rays. The water is filtered 3 to 4 full cycles in between each client. The end result is that although not potable do to the high salt content, our water is held to a drinking water standard.

We are deeply pleased by the presence of healthcare professionals that are already established in the community. We believe we will be synergistic with their practices and will enhance the existing draw and overall experience of the people. Flotation supports the natural order of the body bringing it back into balance and homeostasis. This enhances anyone’s experience in any direction in health.
