HOW FLOAT THERAPY IMPROVES YOUR WELL-BEING 
The density of 900 lbs of Epsom dissolved in 150 gallons of water makes you feel almost completely weightless, letting every single muscle in your body fully relax. Float therapy is a deliberate reduction of sensory stimulation and allows your brain to rest, reset and refresh. In this state, the brain releases vast amounts of endorphins, a “feel good” chemical. Floatation research reveals remarkable benefits from repeatedly using float tanks and the effects of floating are cumulative.


Olympians and National Champions are able to out perform the competition with a well-rounded training routine. They also have another trick - flotation therapy. Over the last several years, floating has been used by a large number of elite athletes to treat various sports-related conditions, aid in recovery and better manage the stresses in their system. Cumulative benefits of regularly floating provides:

A 50 minute Float session in our state-of-the-art pod will provide an opportunity for you to truly rest and unplug from daily stresses and rejuvenate. One float will set you off in the right direction, but a multi-float series or membership is the way to truly experience how float therapy can benefit you.
