Floating is a relaxing experience with many proven health benefits.
Imagine laying in a soundproof room in a shallow tub filled with 1,000 lbs of Epsom salt (Magnesium Sulphate) to allow your body to float effortlessly and feel weightless (think Dead Sea). Picture being away from all the distractions and the noise of daily responsibilities. You will feel unadulterated relaxation as you rest in a floatation pool.
Imagine laying in complete silence in a private space while your brain heals from the negative effects of multitasking, overwork, anxiety, sleeplessness, pain, stress, and the noise of our hyper-stimulated lives.
A buoyant suspension in a shallow, warm solution allows your body to relax and be held above the water. It allows your body to lengthen while you float with no effort or pressure. Relieve inflammation and pain, as well as having your mood stabilize while regulating electrolytes in your body, ensuring proper functioning of the muscles, nerves, and enzymes.
At your first float, a float tank attendant will show you how to safely get in and out of the floatation pool and suggest a comfortable position for your body. From there, the process generally goes as follows:
Here are a few things to know before your visit:
-Be sure to use the restroom before entering the floatation room.
-The float space is completely private. You should float without clothes on.
-You should not shave the day of your float because the high salt content can irritate freshly shaven skin.
-You should use the provided ointment to cover any cuts or scrapes on the skin.
-Eat a light meal an hour and a half before floating to help minimize sounds from your belly, which can be distracting while floating.
Literally EVERYONE! Seriously! If you can step in and out of a bathtub without assistance you can float in our pools! Multiple medical studies have been conducted to support the beneficial effects of float which include deep relaxation, weight loss, decreased blood cortisol levels, relief from anxiety, stress, depression, and pain. Also studies to support blood pressure reduction, faster recovery from injury, concussion, and traumatic brain injuries. There is also reports of enhanced creativity and problem-solving abilities, and increased optimism.

Floatation Therapy is now part of the NFL’s concussion protocol as of 2019 because of the main benefit from floating that has to do with removing stimuli, including light, sound, and gravity. Because of this it is also being used for other traumatic brain injuries. Floatation Therapy allows the brain to connect with other parts of the brain to help it reset and recharge itself. During a 2016 case study at Float Zone, multiple symptoms of concussion were significantly reduced in just 4 weeks including pain, headache, anxiety, depression, sleep, daily fatigue, brain fog, auditory and visual sensitivity, appetite, focus, and productivity all improved with regular floating.
We now have multiple case studies with data to support the beneficial results of Floatation Therapy. Case studies have been conducted since 2016 on anxiety, blood pressure, cortisol blood levels, pain, traumatic brain injuries, concussion, sleep deprivation, chronic pain, neurological diseases including Parkinson’s all with extremely positive outcomes in support of floatation Therapy
Why every athlete should use the float tank:
"It truly changed my life. For 90 minutes (yes, 90!) I floated effortlessly in a tranquil, warm, 10-inch bath of Epsom salt and for the first time I felt the profound peace of quiet, solitude, and utter relaxation."
"I hear nothing except my voice whispering everything I need to hear. I’m immersed in almost spiritual waves of calming peace that can not be overstated. I feel creative and ready to create. I feel like I have a blank slate."
"Back health has always been an issue. Now after a solid month of regular visits I have gone a full week between visits and have had absolutely no pain. Something I haven’t experienced in a very long time."
"Ahhhhh. That is an oversimplification of how I felt the other day after experiencing my first, and hopefully not last, float. As a person with mild Tourette Syndrome (TS), floating helped me to actually relax!"
“I came in a 7 on the pain scale, and left a zero. Not only was I a zero, I stayed a zero for 3 days."
“I feel 20 years younger! Completely amazing! It took my anxiety from an 8 to a zero."
