How does float therapy work?
Inside our expansive Ocean Float Room (8’x7’x5′) you will float effortlessly in a warm and dense solution of epsom salt, about 10 inches deep for about an hour. The water and air in the tank is kept at 93.5 degrees fahrenheit which is skin receptor neutral. This causes you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins once you’re settled.
Your ears stay just below the water and the tanks are insulated against ambient sound, so after you shut the door and turn off the light, you’ll float in total darkness and silence for an hour (you may choose to leave the lights and music on) without forces of gravity, light, ambient sound, or tactile sensations.
Without any external stimuli, your awareness and focus will shift inward helping to reduce stress and pain, improve concentration and creativity, and bring you to a deepened state of relaxation.
When you’re not constantly taking in information, your mind, body and spirit are free to focus on what’s important. Your body pumps out dopamine and endorphins for deeper rest and healing.
It’s likely to be the most relaxing thing you’ve ever experienced.

Why float therapy?
Health & Wellness
People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more. Studies indicate that floating increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards. Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt. Please check out our benefits page for more information!
Everything you experience while floating comes from within. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound. Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state. After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there effortlessly.
People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating. With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and creativity will be enhanced.
