Reflect. Focus. Recover.

Ours is a world of stimulation, of moving faster, getting more done, being more connected (at least virtually), and doing more with less. With ever-increasing demands, our overall wellness and potential to improve necessitate time to recover and refuel. Flotation therapy provides a unique set of circumstances for just this purpose.

The Road to Wellness

Floating decreases injury healing time, post-exercise recovery time, and pain as well as stress and cortisol levels — getting you back to your training schedule ASAP.

The Performance Advantage

Regular floating can take you from performing well to performing your best. Studies show floating increases euphoria, coordination, creativity, and focus.

What's A Float Center?

A float center is a spa-like setting specifically designed for float therapy. Float therapy, or floating, is done in a private float tank containing ten inches of water and over nine hundred pounds of magnesium sulfate, or Epsom salt. The high concentration of this anti-inflammatory salt allows the body to effortlessly float on the water's surface—relieving joint pressure, allowing the spine and muscles to relax and lengthen, and bringing blood flow to injured areas.

Floating minimizes all external inputs—light, sound, temperature gradient, and in a sense, even gravity. This takes our focus away from processing our overstimulating world and instead gives energy to the body for physical healing and mental relaxation.

How will your body use its extra energy?

Why Float

Mindfulness Methods: Sorting & Sleuthing

If you struggle with anxious and depressing thoughts like so many of us do, consider trying to engage with yourself in a different way.

What is Floating REALLY??

As I witness all the things a float can be for myself and others, I have often wondered what, if anything, all floats have in common. What is it that I’ve devoted so much of my life to really?

Study: Floating's Effect on Anxiety and Depression

It is estimated that 42% of people will suffer from anxiety at some point in their lifetime. A new study on floating shows how it can help.

As a former professional skier and US Freeski team athlete, I have been trained to always be on the move. Recently retired, I am now a yoga and fitness instructor and teach close to 15 classes a week. Which sometimes brings me to not just physically but emotionally and spiritually exhausted. I love my personal yoga practice but is still something physical I end up doing to recharge. I honestly didn’t know how to just STOP… until I tried floating! For years even a recovery program involved exercise, painful ice baths or movement of some kind. With floating, there is nothing physical I have to do, nothing to do but reset and heal all aspects that I wasn’t taking time for. I will now take time for my yoga when I need movement but when I need nothing but stillness, I float… This is now my new reset.
