What is Floating?
Floating, also known as Sensory Deprivation and R.E.S.T. Therapy, is allowing yourself to float effortlessly on water that is super saturated with Epsom Salt. The water is kept at skin temperature, and the "Float Rooms" are insulated against light and sound.
For the first time ever, all stimulus is removed from your brain, and your body isn't fighting gravity. Without this constant rush of feedback, your body has a ton of extra resources at its disposal. As a result, positive hormones, such as Dopamine, are pumped out, while stress related hormones, such as Cortisol, are greatly reduced. All of the joints, muscles, and ligaments in your body are finally able to fully stretch and de-stress due to the lack of gravity, and huge dose of Magnesium from the Epsom Salt.
Our Rooms are setup so that our clients can go at their own pace. There are no locks on the tank doors, and there are interior lights that the user can switch on or off. There is about 250 Gallons of Water and 1400Lbs. of Epsom Salt dissolved in the water. The result is water that is so heavy, that it naturally holds you at the top of it. Between each user, a very powerful filtration/sanitation system is switched on. This system, which features an 80 Watt UV Light system and 35% Hydrogen Peroxide, turns the water over every 6 minutes. The water is turned over a minimum of 4 times between clients. We have never had an issue with our water staying clean, or users becoming ill during or after their float.
