Float Station is where you can get away without going away and recharge your senses. Think of the “float” as a perfect hour…free of distractions, free of gravity, free of stress. Floating is supported by science and has immediate and long-lasting, cumulative benefits—the more you float, the greater the effect! And our float spa has been meticulously engineered for one purpose: to deliver results through a premium float experience. Rewire your brain at our float center and let the evolution of you begin…

body

Float therapy has application for the bodies of athletes and office warriors alike. It speeds the recovery of muscles and joints after training sessions, and helps restore postural alignment after a long workweek. Floating also reduces cravings, making a healthy weight management goal more easily attainable. And because floating improves circulation to each of the body’s systems, including the skin, you will radiate the post-float "glow.”

mind

During a float the mind downshifts into a unique state of relaxation that was once the exclusive domain of accomplished meditators. At Float Station, even a novice floater can enjoy neurological harmony. And floating doesn't just feel good—it reduces headaches, improves sleep, releases endorphins, and provides a lasting state of balance.

results

Regular floating results in increased energy, productivity, and well-being. An immensely powerful tool, the float tank enables you to tap into heightened levels of focus and creative problem solving. And during your float, you can even explore a state of “super learning," where your fully relaxed and undistracted mind can make deep, new neural connections.

Unlock Your Potential

Here’s how: sensory deprivation—the antidote to your overloaded nervous system. It’s a 60-minute vacation for your senses, where no light can distract you, no sound can disrupt you, and no physical sensations can tether you. Float Station offers the deepest relaxation on Earth.

The 10 inches of oxygenated water that fills your pod* is maintained at your outer skin temperature, around 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and contains over 1000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate). You’re so buoyant in the pod that floating is effortless, and after a matter of minutes it feels like you’re floating in space!

You are in complete control of your float. The light…you decide if and when you want it off. The music…you determine how long it plays. The canopy door…you control whether it is open or closed or somewhere in between. It is your time…it is your float.

  • *Our float pods, also called “float tanks” measure more than 8 feet long and 5 feet wide. They are incredibly spacious.

The Science of Floating

The scientific research on floating has led to its widespread acceptance as an effective medical treatment in several European countries, like Sweden and Germany, where doctors commonly prescribe floats for stress. New studies on floating confirm its unparalleled versatility and effectiveness as a wellness tool, showing that it helps balance your chemistry, neurology, and physiology.

Floating safely replenishes your levels of magnesium—the “master mineral,” which regulates the absorption of other minerals and over 300 biochemical reactions in the body through its role as an enzyme co-factor. Magnesium also plays a vital role in the reactions that generate and use ATP, the fundamental unit of energy within the body’s cells. Stress itself depletes what little magnesium we get through our diet, literally leading to a feedback loop of further stress.

Our sympathetic nervous system, responsible for the fight-or-flight response, is overworked because we live in a modern world for which we are not biologically well-adapted. Like background neurological static noise, this fight-or-flight response is our new “normal,” and is both exhausting and damaging. Sensory deprivation is the perfect relief.

The weightlessness of floating is incredibly fun! And, it puts you in a state of gentle traction, relieving pressure on your spine and joints, soothing aches and pains in the bones and muscles of your body.
