Floatation Therapy

Floating, also known as sensory deprivation, is a therapeutic experience that allows the body to heal and the mind to recharge with renewed perspective and energy. The water density enables the body to float effortlessly, allowing every muscle to fully relax. The float tank is filled with 11 inches of water and 1000+ pounds of Epsom salt. The water and air are heated to the same temperature as the skin, creating the sensation that the body and water are one.

What Can You Expect From a Session?

Our center offers the open tank-style float room, “The Mandala Open Float.” This style of float tank is completely open with no doors or walls – great for those who may be claustrophobic or prefer a little extra space when they float. This tank still provides the sensory deprivation experience of being completely light or soundproof. The Mandala is quite spacious at 8’ by 4’8”. The Mandala has an infrared heater located on the ceiling of the pool, as well as underneath, to keep the temperature perfect for your entire float.

Keys to the Ultimate Float Experience

Going Into Your Float

Things to know before you arrive...

  • We provide shampoo, conditioner, body wash, earplugs, and towels.
  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to your float time for a brief orientation.
  • Arrive 5 minutes early for subsequent floats.
  • Eat a small meal about 1 hour prior.
  • It will be easier for your body to rest if you aren’t too full or really hungry.
  • Each of our float suites has a private dressing area and shower.
  • There is no need to bring a swimsuit unless you are more comfortable floating in a swimsuit.
  • Remove your contacts.
  • Your eyes will be more comfortable without contacts or glasses on.
  • You cannot float if you have Henna coloring in your hair or a Henna tattoo.
  • Don’t shave or wax before your float.
  • The saltwater solution may irritate your skin.
  • Don’t drink caffeine before floating.
  • Caffeine is a stimulant and will make it difficult to rest and relax.
  • DO NOT apply makeup, moisturizer, perfume, or spray tan before coming for a float.
  • DO NOT smoke cigarettes before coming in for your float.
  • We refuse service if a strong odor of smoke is brought in with you.
  • Do Not Float if you’ve dyed your hair in the past 10 days.
  • With red dye, we require waiting 30 days to float. We’ve found that red dye can leach out of hair for weeks and damage our tanks.
