FLOAT offers relaxing meditation tanks that free you from your senses to give you a deeper, more meaningful mental experience. For everyone looking to rise above life’s daily demands, we provide a way to relax and improve mental and physical health.
Inside every FLOAT location, you’ll find our knowledgable staff, always ready to help. Beyond an expertise in floating, our backgrounds in mental health and overall well-being give us insight to help you make the most of every float. Together, we’ve created a welcoming environment for everyone to have the rare chance to completely rest, reflect and recharge.
The tanks are not completely zero-gravity (as in outer space). But, they create a near zero-gravity state, which allows our bodies to rest and heal. This state will place your mind in a unique environment, which supports the creation of new neural networks and unique processes.
Restricted Environmental Stimulus
When we float, we are able to regulate the amount of environmental stimuli that are received through our senses. This allows a space for our mind, body, and soul to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.
Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate)
Magnesium is reported to provide better sleep, relax the nervous system, support the growth and maintenance of muscles, increase muscle flexibility, support the integrity and strength of bones, re-mineralize our teeth, alkalize the body, hydrate the body, provide relief to our digestive system, and support enzyme function. Sulfates are found in every cell within the human body and play a role in the production of collagen, detoxifying the body, supporting the digestive system, pancreas function and the secretion of digestive enzymes, as well as having antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties.
Being vs. Doing
Have you heard of the phrase: humans have become human-doings? We have. For the modern human, it is a foreign concept to set aside 90 minutes for the sole purpose of rest and relaxation. While developing a regular meditation practice is a lovely concept, it can be hard for some people to put into practice. At F.LO.A.T, you can choose to inhabit a space that is void of distraction. It will be your own quiet and peaceful sanctuary.
After you shut the door and turn off the light, you float in total darkness. During your float the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.
You won’t be fighting gravity. The 850 pounds of epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie on your back. Pretty cool, right?
It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.
The water is kept at 93.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.
