Flotation Therapy

Sensory Deprivation

  • Floating is a therapy in which the environment is limited of external stimuli. The client enters into a sensory deprivation tank, also called an isolation or flotation tank, which is used for restricted environmental stimulation therapy or  (REST). The tank holds 10 to 12 inches of water and 1000 pounds of Epsom salt solution which is more buoyant than the dead sea. The weightless environment allows the body to float on the back, half in and out of the water. The tank water is roughly skin temperature, the lights are typically off and in conjunction with the restricted stimulus setting it is typical for one to lose track of ones body and surroundings and enter into a deep state of nothingness.

  • The tank is sound restricted and, when the light goes off, completely dark.

  • No gravity, no touch, no sight, and no sound.



BENEFITS OF FLOATING

  • Omitting all sensory input, allows us to look and utilize the internal power within where it all is anyway… allowing a relaxed state, Without the constant pressure of the external world, one’s body lowers levels of cortisol, the main chemical component of stress. Floating also reports to increase creative inspiration, and causes familiar feelings of wholeness,  serenity of mind, body and spirit.

  •  Without stimulus The body begins a return to balance and utilizes extra resources which it can use to focus on things from healing and resting to increased awareness, reduced stress and improved athletic performance and cognitive memory enhancement.

  • Floating has been shown to assist in chronic and acute pain relief, muscles get to fully rest. Research shows that about 1 hour of floating is equitant to 4 hours of restful sleep. Here one can enter into a parasympathetic, worry free, theta brain wave state.

  • The magnesium-based Epsom salt solution we use in the tank feels wonderful on the skin and can help with magnesium deficiencies and promote relaxation and muscle recovery.

  • Floating has been shown to have measurable benefits for PTSD, Anxiety, depression and improved sleep just to name a few.

  • The Floater …” Experiences it as a unified flowing from one moment to the next, in which he is in control of his actions, and in which there is little distinction between self and environment, between stimulus and response, between past, present, and future. “ - - The Book of Floating ©Michael Hutchinson



  • “When we view the mind and body as a single system, it becomes clear that external stimuli are constantly militating against the system’s equilibrium, every noise, every degree of temperature above or below the body’s optimal level, every encounter with other people, everything we see and feel can disrupt our homeostasis. But when we enter the tank, we abruptly stop making constant adjustments to outer stimuli. Since there are no external threats, no pressures to adapt to outside events, the system can devote all its energies to restoring itself./ The normal state, of course, is health, vigor, enthusiasm, and immense pleasure in being alive.”

  • FIRST TIME FLOATERS –


  • New clients should arrive 30 minutes before appointment time—this allows time to complete paperwork, be given a short demo of our pod and some instructions.

  • Be sure to eat a moderate meal 90 minutes to two hours before your float, that way you aren't feeling uncomfortable from being hungry or from having eaten too much.

  • Avoid caffeine and alcohol for about 4 hours before your float, they act as stimulants and can make you feel restless.

  • Avoid shaving for about a day before you float, as it can make your skin sensitive, and the salts can sting a bit if your skin is irritated. Newly colored hair will stain our tanks, please allow 10 days after coloring before entering the pod, your shower water should run clear from color.

  • It is not recommended that you float with tubes in your ears or an ear infection.

  • It is not advisable to float with a fresh tattoo. Please get the okay from your tattoo artist prior to floating to ensure the longevity of your artwork, usually 6 weeks.

  • We encourage clients to check with their doctor when beginning any new health regimen, such as flotation.
