What is Floatation Therapy?
Like Seinfeld is the TV sitcom about "nothing", so too is floating. "Floatation therapy," is literally floating in nothingness. Our brains are constantly filtering, adapting and responding to outside forces...computers, TVs, cell phones, even people. The buoyancy created by the high concentration of Epsom Salt in the warm water, allows your body to float effortlessly; while the sound and light proof tank removes stimuli, creating a perfect environment of "nothingness". So with all of the excess "noise" and gravitational forces on your body removed, your brain is able to fully disengage to rest and reset.
Floating the Blue Lotus Way
To get started, follow the recipe below (or just come float with us!!) and in a few simple steps you're on your way!!
- Large vessel -- these are just two of our pods from Superior Float Tanks, the Evolution and Orb. We will also offer the Quest Float suite, pictured below.
- 10-12 inches of water heated to body temperature
- Pinch of Epsom Salt (pharmaceutical grade magnesium sulfate) around 800 to 1000 lbs will do!
Step into your private, soundproof room, equipped with a state-of-the-art float tank. Each room features a thoughtfully appointed shower with paraben free bath products, 100% organic cotton bath and face towels, earplugs, and everything you need to make your experience more comfortable. If you are heading out after your float, we even have fully equipped grooming stations!
Dissolve ingredients thoroughly and slip into the water. The buoyancy created by the salt will allow your body to relax in the weightlessness, and once the lid/door is closed you are enveloped in the darkness** and solitude allowing your brain to rest and recharge.
Emerge transformed and renewed!
If the thought of being closed in silent darkness sets off claustrophobic alarm bells for you, rest assured the recipe can be easily adjusted to suit your needs. Our tanks are equipped with lights and underwater speakers to help ease you into your experience, and can even be kept on through the duration of your session. Your comfort is paramount, so whether it's Pearl Jam or your favorite meditation track to help you get in the zone, we can customize your experience accordingly.
