Minimize input, maximize output.

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

The Positive Effects of Floating

The funny thing about the uncertainty some floaters express? Most times it’s expressed while smiling. I’m not sure these floaters realize the juxtaposition between their verbal language and their body language. But we do.

Mindfulness Methods: Ho’oponopono

When I’m unable to find calm, I use practices to redirect me toward positivity and healing, like the practice of reconciliation known as Ho’oponopono.

Mindfulness Methods: Mindful Breathing

This post is part of our Mindfulness Methods series, a collection of blogs dedicated to exploring different techniques we use to enhance our float experiences. There’s no wrong way to float, but sometimes we need a little help to get the most out of our time in the tank.

Felt like a baby in a womb! Took my meditation next level. Can I stay here forever? Thanks for the beautiful space.
