A complete relaxation session for mind and body, float therapy is the act of entering a dark, soundproof room filled with 12 inches of purified, body-temperature water that is saturated with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, allowing you to simply float, completely devoid of stimulus.

High speed filtration and rinse cycles with non-toxic UV, ozone, and hydrogen peroxide deliver safe and effective sanitation.
How Float Therapy Works
Developed by prominent neuroscientist Dr. John Lilly in the 1950s, float therapy creates a sensory-free environment that reduces the central nervous system's workload by as much as 90%.
This reduction draws a person's energy inward and promotes relaxation--also known as the parasympathetic response.
The parasympathetic response is the mechanism by which the body naturally regenerates itself and maintains chemical and metabolic balance. Old wounds and injuries are allowed to heal faster. T-cell production strengthens the immune system.
Why Float Therapy
This deep level of relaxation also benefits the cardiovascular system. While floating, your body experiences the vasodilatory effect, an increase in circulation that lowers blood pressure and improves oxygen levels.
The anti-gravity environment removes weight and tension from muscles and joints, proving particularly beneficial for people suffering from musculoskeletal and rheumatic conditions.
High concentrations of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts, which are not actually salts but naturally occurring pure mineral compounds of magnesium and sulfate, are the key:
Magnesium plays a number of roles in the body including regulating the activity of over 325 enzymes, reducing inflammation, helping muscle and nerve function, and helping to prevent artery hardening.
Sulfates help improve the absorption of nutrients, flush toxins, and help ease migraine headaches.
