Flotation therapy has been around for quite sometime and is experiencing a bit of a resurgence in popularity around the country. The health benefits of floating are well documented and supported by meaningful scientific research. The buoyant supersaturated Epsom salt water and the closed-off environment of the float tanks minimize light, sound, gravity and other sensory input we are bombarded with on a daily basis. Rest and relaxation, pain management and heightened creativity and meditation are all immediate benefits of just one float session.
A Place to Float is a new health and wellness spa bringing the clinical benefits of flotation therapy to the city of Indianapolis. In August 2014 we decided to open A Place To Float, and quickly set about researching and experiencing float centers around the country (including an apprenticeship at Float On in Portland, OR). Since then we have secured the best equipment (industry-exclusive open tanks designed by Royal Spa), negotiated a location in the Irvington Coal Factory, received the health department’s blessing and cultivated an active audience. We’ve planned with designers, architects and construction companies to flush out the complex (and very costly) requirements of a world-class float spa. We won’t have the first float tanks in Indiana, but we will have the best float spa in the Midwest!
We are excited to bring this wellness option to athletes, creatives, chronic pain sufferers and overworked professionals of Indianapolis. Our mission is to involve the community as much as we can during every step of our journey to making A Place to Float a reality. Sign up for announcements and appointments, learn more about the benefits of floating or help to spread the word about flotation therapy. If you’re interested in being part of our venture, send us an email. We hope you join us in our effort to bring a truly unique and professional flotation therapy center to Indianapolis.
