What is it?
REST— (RESTRICTED ENVIROMENTAL STIMULATION THERAPY). The basic concept is that floating reduces external stimuli as much as possible to help the body achieve a natural restorative state. Without the intense stimulation of our modern environment we are able to experience the purest form of relaxation. Float Therapy has been shown to dramatically lower cortisol, the stress hormone, which causes anxiety, surpasses the immune system and contributes to weight gain. Stress is the number one cause of disease. When we relieve stress from our body and mind we get to experience being at optimum health. Float therapy is a simple, effective way to invest in your own health and happiness. Many people experience deep euphoria, some have out-of-body experiences and everyone leaves with a deep and lasting sense of relaxation.
Benefits of Floating
Getting rid of all sensory input allows the ‘constantly-working’ part of your brain to chill out for a second, allowing the creative, relaxed part of your brain to come out. Without the constant pressure of analyzing the world around you, your body lowers its levels of cortisol, the main chemical component of stress. Your brain also releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, the neurotransmitters of happiness.

Floating is an incredible tool for Physical & Physiological recovery. An hour in this environment does wonders for your mind, body and central nervous system, Epsom salt itself is a natural anti-inflammatory. Without the persistent force of gravity pulling you down, chronic and acute pain are relieved, your muscles get to fully rest. Unlike lying on a mattress, lying in water allows blood to flow freely throughout your body, improving overall circulation. After an hour of weightlessness, your mind, joints and muscles will thank you! While enjoying this well-deserved break, your body suddenly has loads of extra resources allowing the body to focus on things like healing and resting.
Epsom Salt Benefits
Over one thousand pounds of epsom salts, which helps you float effortlessly on top of the water! Allowing for complete relaxation. When Epsom salt is dissolved in water, it releases magnesium and sulfate ions.
Many people, including some healthcare professionals, claim Epsom salt is therapeutic and use it as an alternative treatment for several conditions.
The idea is that these particles can be absorbed through your skin, providing you with magnesium and sulfates — which serve important bodily functions. Epsom salts alone can help aid in Sleep and Stress Reduction, Constipation, Exercise Performance / Recovery, and Reduced Pain and Swelling.
The Micron Filtration System is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size and is FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration). Standard competitor pool and spa filter cartridges only filter to 20-30 microns and require regular cleaning.
Advanced AOP Sanitation Science
When germicidal UV light (UV-C) and ozone react the result is the production of hydroxyl radicals. This reaction is known as Advanced Oxidation Process, or AOP. Hydroxyl radicals (•OH) are the most powerful oxidation agents available, quickly destroying bacteria, viruses, pathogens and other contaminants that occur in water. Hydroxyl radicals also destroy chlorine resistant microorganisms, such as Cryptosporidium Parvum, Giardia and E.Coli.
AOP is dramatically more powerful than Chlorine and other sanitizers, and even more powerful than Ozone alone. In AOP systems, the highly unstable hydroxyl radicals react with dissolved waterborne contaminants in a series of strong oxidation reactions. This process happens almost instantaneously.
Our Float Suites come equipped with active ventilation for removing the humidity buildup and for fresh air inside of the float suite. This makes for a more comfortable float experience from start to finish.

Are our Float Tanks Wheelchair-Accessible?
If you do not have good upper body mobility/strength, you are, of course, more than welcome to have helpers come in with you and help you in and out of the shower and float tank. We have a comfortable lounge area for assistants to hang out in while you float. This would likely be best with two helpers, one who steps into the float tank with you (there’s lots of room), holding your upper body, and a second person helping guide your legs through the door. Unfortunately our staff are not allowed to assist in this process.
Another area worth mentioning is that in order to use our float tanks, you must have full control over bodily function. Unfortunately, those with unpredictable intestinal or urinary function should not float, as this poses a risk to the quality of the water, and therefore safety of others. Any damage to the water in our float tanks from using them with a known incontinence issue will unfortunately result in a rather large bill for 2,000+ lbs of Epsom salts
