Floatation Therapy

Floatation Therapy is a way to deeply relax in a way that blocks out all of modern life’s distractions, allowing your mind and muscles to release all their tension, so you can breathe easier and settle into a deep state of peace and calm.

You’ll step into a spacious, enclosed Float Room with about 10 inches of water, warmed to your external body temperature. As you lie back into the water, you’ll float effortlessly with over 1000 pounds of salt to keep you afloat. You can choose to keep the lights on or off, and listen to music or relish in silence, as you drift into a sense of comfort and stillness.

The benefits of floatation therapy happen even with only one float. However, like any therapy consistent and repeated usage amplifies the results. Expect to go 3 times before you can really notice the feeling and difference that floating can make.

What To Expect

INTRODUCTION

One of our team members will lead you into your floatation therapy suite. First-time guests will get a brief walk-through of the room and be introduced to floatation therapy. Our staff will make sure that you are completely comfortable before starting your session.

PRE FLOAT SHOWER

All guests are given complete privacy and are required to take a quick 5-minute shower (with shampoo & body wash only). Place ear plugs in your ears before your shower to improve the seal. Pat your face dry with a towel before entering the float room.

ENTERING THE FLOAT ROOM

Carefully enter the float room by using the handrails and allow yourself to gently lay back in the water. You have full control of the meditative music and lights from inside the float room.

YOUR FLOAT EXPERIENCE

As your body relaxes and your mind lets go, it will feel like you are floating in outer space. By focusing on your breath (or nothing at all), the brain will naturally drift into a dream-like theta state. Within minutes of zero gravity, your body can relax, decompress, and re-align.

You have the option to have all light and sound slowly fade away. 

ENDING YOUR FLOAT SESSION

As your session comes to an end, the music will gently fade and the light will kick on. Guests are given 5 minutes at the end of their float to thoroughly rinse off all the salt water and another 10 minutes to get dressed and exit the room. We ask that you please exit the room in a timely manner so we can change it over and deep clean for the next guest.

Float Therapy Benefits

Since floatation therapy works to calm the mind and body, it is an ideal practice for those that are sleep deprived, work long hours, and need to re-charge. Floating naturally lowers stress hormones and releases endorphins, which can last for days. Those who try our float tanks can look forward to:

Float Therapy Tips

Expectations are one of the greatest hindrances to having a good float.  It’s very important that you allow yourself to let go and know that whatever your experience, your body is receiving the benefits of deep relaxation.

For men, avoid shaving your face at least 6 hours before you float. For women, avoid shaving your body at least 12 hours before your float. During your float, any lesions will be distracting due to the Epsom salt sting.

Be sure to use the washroom prior to showering before you float. Talk about a distraction while in the room!

Avoid smoking at least 3 hours prior to Floating. It will stimulate you too much and most importantly, the scent will also disturb the atmosphere of our Float Rooms.

Avoid having caffeine before you float. The stimulation you experience from caffeine is the exact opposite way you’ll want to go when you are in the room.

Being dehydrated before the float may not be the best state, particularly for your brain. Therefore a healthy daily hydration practice is just good for optimal biology!

A full stomach is not great for floating, nor is and empty stomach. So having a light, easily digestible meal 1.5 to 2 hours pre-float is ideal.

For guests with recently colored hair or highlights, we recommend not floating until you have shampooed your hair at least twice. Dyes can (in some cases) bleed out or be affected by the heavy concentration of epsom salt. So we say to wait at least 7 days before floating.

Please wait at least 2 weeks after a receiving a spray tan before floating.

We have found performing physical activity (yoga, cardio, or resistance training) before you float can greatly enhance the floating experience. Your body has expended pent-up energy, your muscles and tissues are loose and flowing with blood, and your mind is clear and calm.

Although first-time floaters might feel shy about entering the float room naked, floating in the nude is the most effective way to enjoy the benefits. However, bathing suits are certainly permitted, but the way they pull on your skin will likely detract from the experience. Floating naked allows you to experience complete sensory deprivation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some answers to the questions we receive the most about our floatation therapy services. If we missed anything, please do not hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to help!

We prefer that you wear nothing but your birthday suit. Anything you wear will get very heavy with the salt solution and press against your body, becoming a distraction. Your experience is completely private from beginning to end and there are locks on every treatment room door. 

We have had several guests with varying degrees of claustrophobia and each has successfully floated and enjoyed their experience! In addition, you are in control of your environment at all times. You can open the door, leave a light on and play music if desired.

Yes! The zero-gravity environment is ideal for managing back pain and discomfort during pregnancy. There have also been reports of women having deep levels of connection with their unborn children while floating. Experiences such as hearing the baby’s heartbeat, or feeling the baby move for the first time in early pregnancy are common.

Our sensory deprivation rooms get an hour deep cleaning between each use. Our automated filtration system employs UV, ozone and a dual filtration system, to filter the water particles down. This is performed three times between each session, ensuring pristine water.

We adhere to an extremely strict set of testing protocols. The water is tested every day for hygiene, specific gravity, pH balancing, sterilization, temperatures. In addition, our specially designed filters are capable of screening the water down to as little as 1 micron (100th the size of a hair).

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb.  Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the float room.  Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, earplugs, body wash, shampoo and conditioner).

Yes, the benefits of the magnesium are known to ease the symptoms of PMS. However, we just ask that you please use the same sanitary precautions as when swimming in a pool.

What happens to your newly dyed hair when you shower at home? Is the water clear? If not, you should probably wait before you float.  To clarify, if there is still some color coming out you should wait to float after 7 or more days/showers.

That’s OK. Floating is as easy as taking a bath. You just step in, sit down, and lay back. You can touch the bottom with your hands. There is no skill required, you just let the salty water do the work – you’ll actually float like a cork and it doesn’t matter what shape or size you are.

No. Floatation therapy is not for everyone. It’s not ‘normal’, but if it connects with you the results are amazing.  Like anything it is only a tool, a practiced way to achieve a goal. The closest analogy is that of meditation. 

You may need to float a few times before you are able to relax completely, both physically and mentally. Depending on your own journey through life, a float might provide an hour of total physical relaxation. Floating can be a wonderful aid to opening doors into your inner world, gradually allowing access to those deeper levels at which real changes take place.

The benefits of floatation therapy happen even with only one float. However, like any therapy consistent and repeated usage amplifies the results. Expect to go 3 times before you can really notice the feeling and difference that floating can make.

Floatation tanks have been used since the 1950s. Although isolation tanks saw renewed popularity during the 1980s, they’ve only recently been the preferred way to unwind in the past few years.

They’re known throughout the world as an effective way of relieving stress. By bringing floatation technology to our community, we’re helping more people discover a deeper level of stress relief and healing.

While the process may not be new, most people haven’t had the opportunity to experience how peaceful they can feel through floating.

Having a massage session prior to your floatation therapy session will sooth sore muscles that have been worked on, helping reduce the level of tenderness muscles sometimes feel following a massage treatment.

Our Happy Guests

A Better Me Spa is beautifully and great therapy. When I went it was a surprise for a birthday. I did Floatation Therapy. It was awesome! So relaxing, I had a knot from sleeping wrong and afterwards it was gone. After floating I felt like a new person! I can’t say enough about the wonderful staff! I will be coming back for more floatation and bringing others with to enjoy the experience. Thank you!

The whole vibe is relaxing, the space is beautiful (even smelled amazing!) and the owners are fabulous! The float, well, it was the best thing I’ve done for myself this year. It was yesterday and I still feel the benefits of it today: peaceful, light, and refreshed. Thanks so much for making my first float experience WONDERFUL!!!!
Jill A
This was my first float experience. The staff was very helpful in explaining the process and how to get started. Plus I am very Prego so they sent info to assure it was safe. I did the full 60 min float. It was very relaxing and comfortable. I felt great during and especially after. I highly recommend just to get the strain from pregnancy off your body. But also for stress release, relaxation and joint/muscle pain relief.
