"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 with 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!"
