What is a Float (or Flotation) Therapy?
Float Therapy is sometimes referred to as Sensory Deprivation. The practice of reducing external stimuli to the nervous system. If you have a nervous system, you probably need to float! This fast-paced world throws a lot at us. Sometimes our stress comes from our very own minds! 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
- And more!
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!
We offer large, lighted, cabin-style Ocean Float Rooms similar to the image below. No intimidating pods or black walls. We cater to cowards! 🙂

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
People who meditate or practice mindfulness find float offers an opportunity for even deeper levels of consciousness. Some find the quiet space a perfect time for prayer or affirmations.
