Why float?

Floating is about everything you
won’t be doing.

You won’t be fighting gravity. The 1,000 pounds of epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie on your back.

You won’t be distracted by outside noises. Your ears stay just below the water, and the tanks are insulated against sound.

The water is kept at 93.5 degrees. This is skin receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.

After you shut the door and turn off the lights, you float in total darkness.

During your float, the outside world is gone and amazing things happen.

When you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information, your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.
Your mind is free from distractions, your brain waves slow down, and your body gets to rest, destress, and heal.

It’s likely to be the most relaxing thing you’ve ever experienced.
