What is Floating?

Flotation Therapy is a way of achieving deep relaxation by giving yourself an hour of effortlessly floating in a solution of 41% Epsom salt and water.

We are constantly bombarded with outside stimuli & environmental forces outside of our control, the concept behind Floating is shutting off the world. During a Float session our minds and bodies are able to release from these distractions, enabling a deep relaxation/meditation. The weightlessness combined with Epsom salts, also creates an ideal environment for skeletal and muscular relief of pain & tension.
