WHAT IS FLOATING?
Flotation therapy, also known as Sensory Deprivation, Floating or R.E.S.T (Reduced Environmental Stimulation Therapy) is a beneficial wellness tool that has been proven to relieve stress and anxiety, cut physical recovery time, reduce pain, and is believed to boost creativity and focus.
It was developed in 1954 by Dr. John C Lilly, who was interested in the effects of sensory deprivation on the brain. It had surprisingly beneficial results and tanks were eventually made available commercially in 1972.
Our sound insulated cabins contain 10 inches of water that is set at approximately skin receptor temperature (94.5°) with a 1,000 to 1,200 pounds of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt. The high content of Epsom salt makes floating effortless, relieving the pressure of gravity off your muscles and joints and reducing stimulation of the body and mind.
You, the floater, have complete control of your experience. You can enter and exit the float in your private room at any time, leave the lights on or turn them off, listen to music or enjoy the silence. Personally, I relish the reset I get from the silence and total darkness in an often too busy world.
Flotation therapy is a simple way to relax the body and the mind. For more information, click on Benefits of Floating or Your First Visit.
