(also known as Float Therapy or Sensory Deprivation)
Float Therapy, sometimes referred to as Sensory Deprivation, is the practice of reducing external stimuli to the nervous system. No light, no sound, no gravity, no interruptions. What is left is YOU. Pure, peaceful, blissful, and beautiful you!
External stimuli to your nervous system is like the outside pressure on a balloon. The balloon handles normal pressure quite easily. As pressure increases, the balloon’s shape has to adapt to an unrecognizable shape. Enough pressure and the balloon will eventually explode. In people that explosion looks like a breakdown, panic attack, burnout, or just barely hanging on while saying “I’m fine, everything is fine.” The goal of Float Therapy is to ease that pressure, and with regular floating, prevent an explosion from happening.
This fast-paced world throws a lot at us. However, sometimes stress comes from our very own minds! Regardless of the source, the resulting stress can result in a whole host of adverse conditions. These include:
✔️ Decreased Immune Response
✔️ Relationship Problems
✔️ Mental Fog
✔️ Writer’s Block/Lack of Creativity
✔️ Reduced Learning Capability
Floating gives your brain a chance to reset and heal. It gives your mind a chance to observe your thoughts rather than being a slave to them.
The 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt, which is dissolved in the water, will relax your muscles. From the large muscle groups that athletes overwork to smooth muscles that move your blood throughout the body.
The Epsom Salt solution also works to reduce inflammation in the body. Your aching joints will appreciate that.
If you have a nervous system, you probably need to float!
We offer large, lighted, cabin-style Ocean Float Rooms similar to this image. No intimidating, cramped pods or black walls with no available lights.

Benefits of Floating
There have been many studies, including clinical trials, conducted on floating. Floating can positively affect you mentally, physically, and spiritually.
Studies have shown reductions in PTSD, stress, general anxiety, and depression. Those suffering from PTSD, autism, addictions, and anorexia nervosa.
Float Therapy has also been used by top athletes, like Stephen Curry, to reduce muscle fatigue and gain mental focus. It’s also great for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) sufferers
