What is Flotation?
about 3 years ago

Floating involves lying in a Pod or Room that contains 10’’ of constantly heated water mixed with 1,000 lbs of therapeutic grade Epsom Salt.

People have been using float therapy for decades as a way to pause their hectic life and enter a state of deep mental and physical relaxation.

By giving the body a break from the endless input of sensory experiences, the mind has a chance to recharge, rest and emerge to face the world with renewed perspective and energy. Otherwise known as floatation-REST (restricted environmental stimulation technique) or sensory deprivation, floating is backed by multiple research studies and offers immense potential for personal growth and healing.
