Who uses float rooms?
The primary reasons people float are to reduce chronic anxiety, heighten cognitive function and relieve pain. Some people float to escape the bustle of life and relax for a few hours, while others use floating as a therapy for anxiety and stress. Floating is also used to increase creativity, attention and retention, as well as explore thoughts and emotions in a semi-conscious or meditative state. Others float to help manage and reduce pain as a supplement or replacement for pain medication and physical therapy.
Frequently Asked Questions About Floating
The interior of a float tank is exceptionally sanitary. Each tank has up to 1,500 pounds of Epsom salt dissolved in the water, which raises the salinity to levels that are inhospitable to bacteria, including microbes and other pathogens.
The Solution is sterilized between each session through a process of commercial-grade circulation, filtration and purification using a combination of UV (Ultraviolet Light) and Ozone.
No harsh chemicals (Chlorine, Bromine etc) are used in the solution at our facility.
What's in the water?
Pretty much anyone can enjoy a float. The use of float rooms is not limited to any particular demographic. The young and the old, men and women and people of all lifestyles enjoy flotation therapy.

Yes, pregnant women may use float rooms. Floating while pregnant allows you to escape the added weight of pregnancy by taking the strain off the body and spine (and feet!). It promotes excellent sleep, a lovely sense of well being, and can help with all the aches and pains normally associated with pregnancy. For many mothers, the environment creates a heightened sensitivity and connection with the baby, and some have reported a profound experience of “mirroring” from floating in a quiet, warm and secure environment while their baby does the same. Because circumstances are unique with each pregnancy, use of float tanks should be discussed with a health care professional.
This simple answer? About 1,000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt. This solution of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) is used to create a weightless suspension of your body, but also leaves your skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated. For thousands of years, millions have flocked to the Dead Sea for the relief from pain and muscle aches the salty water provides. Floating provides a modern-day way to experience the same relief.
