Floating helps the body recover from injury, relieve stress and anxiety, improve cognitive function, and help clear the mind. We have selected our rates to keep the flotation experience affordable so that you can float on a regular basis. After all, making flotation therapy a practice allows you to achieve the greatest results.
Our monthly memberships have been designed to be the best option for the regular floater. We also offer discounted floats in the form of a 3-Float package, which is a great option for a new floater since it takes a few floats to become accustomed to the process.
We also offer single floats, couple floats, gift certificates, and more! Please contact us with any questions!
Before your float, you will have 6 minutes to shower, use the shampoo, and body wash provided. Please do not use the conditioner before your float but you’re welcome to use it afterward.
We provide 2 different types of single-use earplugs. A wax earplug, and a foam one. Use whichever you prefer. We recommend putting your ear plugs in before you shower because once you're wet they won't stay in your ears as easily.
We also provide A & D Ointment for any cuts or scrapes. This helps so the salt doesn't aggravate it.
There is a float pillow hanging inside the tank to help prop up your head if you have trouble relaxing.
Inside your float room you will see 2 buttons to control the music and lights. Lights are just on and off. Music can be adjusted high, medium, low, and off.
You will hear an intro track after the 6 minutes for your shower, after that your music will come on. At the end of your float you will hear an exit track prompting you to exit the tank. You will have 5 minutes for a quick shower after your float.
After your float you can enjoy a cup of tea in our post-float lounge. We also have a powder room with a blow dryer for getting ready before you head out.
A float tank has been described as ‘the perfect bathtub’. It is roughly 8’x5’, and is enclosed but never locks. It holds just about one foot of water and has over 1200 lbs of Epsom salt dissolved inside. This allows you to effortlessly float in water that is 93.5 degrees which is skin-receptor neutral. You'll have the unique experience of weightlessness; you cannot sense where the air stops and the water begins on your body. The tanks and rooms are totally insulated from sound, and you have the opportunity for lights and music, or complete sensory deprivation. During a float, people may think of nothing, write plot of a book, visualize how to improve their golf game, meditate, or fall asleep.
Since the 1950s, float therapy has been researched extensively. There are many articles and research papers to prove that the benefits of floating go beyond the placebo effect. Many conditions and illnesses can be alleviated during a floatation session, such as muscle aches, fibromyalgia, anxiety, PTSD, depression, stress reduction, and more.
Floatation groups have shown dramatically increased scores when compared to control groups in various studies. The results show improvements in sleep quality, optimism, pain, and mindfulness. For these reasons, the Celtics, Tom Brady & the NE Patriots, and US Military use float therapy.
Our standard Float Suite can accommodate 1 person. You get to choose a colored light and a meditation soundtrack for your float, you are also able to control these while floating. The room is 7’ 6” tall and 4’ 8” wide.
Our Deluxe Float Suite can accommodate 1 or 2 people. You get to choose a colored light and a meditation soundtrack for your float, and you also have a fiber optic starlight ceiling! You are able to control all of these while floating. The room is 7’ 6” tall and 6’ 11” wide. The extra space allows 1 person to spread out, or 2 people to comfortably float together!
The water in the float tank has 1200+ pounds of Epsom salt in it which keeps most microorganisms from growing, similarly to the Dead Sea. In between every float, the water is completely pumped three full times through a UV/ozone/peroxide purification filter system, similar to those used in municipal drinking water systems. For more information visit https://www.superiorfloattanks.com/filtration our manufacturer. In addition to this, the water is tested daily to maintain required levels. Everyone who enters the float tank is required to shower thoroughly before their float. The tanks and shower area are also cleaned between each float.
The 1200+ pounds of Epsom Salt makes everything more buoyant. Think of the Dead Sea!
Typically people with claustrophobia report no problems. Once inside, you lose track of the walls and it feels as though you are in space. Doors can always be propped open if desired. The tank is just short of a queen-sized bed in width and a little longer, so it is a large space. If you don't feel claustrophobic inside your car, you likely will feel fine inside of our tanks. The ceiling is 7 feet tall, so you can comfortably stand in the tank.
If you need to remove contacts (which we recommend if you have them), bring a case for those and glasses. We have towels, ear plugs, face wipes, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a neck pillow. You are welcome to bring anything else with you prefer to wash with or get ready with after your float. As an additional tip, try to avoid shaving and caffeine on the day of your float.
The float rooms have showers and are private so you don't need a swimsuit. If you would really like one, you are free to bring one, but wearing anything in the tank typically leads to minor discomforts and distractions.
We kindly ask that if you have communicable skin disease, contagious illness, or have had chemotherapy treatment within 21 days that you wait to float. If your hair has been recently dyed, permed, or has any treatment that prevents it from being washed thoroughly, then we ask you wait to float. Hair dye is no longer a concern when it has stopped bleeding when it is being rinsed or there is no longer dye on towels. If you have recently had a tattoo, wait the allotted time before exposing it to water, typically around two weeks. If you've gotten a spray tan we have a strict policy regarding the time period. If your spray tan no longer stains towels or sheets than you are in the clear otherwise it will ruin your tan, and our tanks which will also result in a $1000 fine to accommadate sanitation fees.
It happens all the time! If you fall asleep due to the deep relaxation you experience, you will stay afloat due to the buoyancy created by the 1200+ pounds of Epsom Salt in the water. Your face will remain above the water line. When your session is complete, a voice recording will let you that it's time to get out.
Floating has been around for over 50 years and has completely changed from then. There are many studies that have been conducted. Check out Clinical Floatation for all of the studies available on float therapy.
Some people prefer to use the sauna prior and others prefer to use it after their float session. If you choose to use it prior we reccomend waiting an hour inbetween sessions or taking a cooler shower before your float. If you'd rather utilize the sauna after your float, go right ahead!
Yes! In our Sunlighten saunas there are options for music. We provide an aux cord and dongle compatable for both Apple and Samsung devices. If you prefer the radio, we've got you covered. There is one already installed in the sauna and any staff member will be glad to show you how it works. All we ask is that music is played at a respectful volume.
Yes, you can. We have speakers in the tanks, so you can bring your favorite meditation music to listen to. We have a few different tracks already loaded into the tank that you can choose from as well. A sample of these tracks can be found here. If you are going for the sensory deprivation experience, you should avoid music.
We ask that you do not bring water/liquids into the sauna. This is because of the wiring and panels in the sauna itself. However, you are more than welcome to bring water into your room and set it on the table right outside of the sauna door. It's important to stay hydrated so do drink at least 8oz before your session.
Our Sunlighten IR Sauna differs from a regluar sauna due to the distribution of heat. In a far infrared sauna you are being heated rather than the air. The heat feels like you are basking in the sun but minus the steam that other saunas have.
If you're on your menstrual cycle we suggest using a fresh tampon or menstrual cup.
Any other questions, feel free to ask our staff!
No, not yet. We do have hope it will be in the future. Some HSA cards may work for alternative therapies, but it really depends on the insurance company. It is best to call and check with your HSA provider.
Our building is wheelchair accessible. The float rooms however are not, strictly speaking, wheelchair accessible from an ADA perspective. The float tanks require stepping or being lifted 2 feet off the ground and then setting down 2 feet into the tank. We are not able to assist anyone in and out of the tank, but a family member or friend could go in the float room and assist. Floating can be a large help in assisting those who have muscle pain and soreness as well as relaxing the central nervous system. We want to be able to assist as many people who need this therapy as possible, so we are working on as many ways as we can to accommodate as many people as possible.
In order to use our float tanks, we do require full control of your bodily functions. Sadly, those with unpredictable urinary and intestinal function should not float. This is a safety concern for everyone and we strive to have a clean facility. Any known incident regarding loss of bodily functions will result in a bill of up to $1000 to accommodate sanitation fees.
