Floating is a combination of 3 basic things:
1000 pounds of Epsom Salts (magnesium sulfate) helps relieve inflammation and pain, as well as being a mood-stabilizer and regulating electrolytes in your body, ensuring proper functioning of the muscles, nerves, and enzymes.
Buoyant Suspension in a shallow, warm solution allows your body to relax and be held above the water. It allows your body to lengthen while you literally float with no effort or pressure. Even falling asleep is safe in a float tank.
Complete Silence in a secure, private space is the most important aspect of floating. Our brains need a break to balance the negative effects of multitasking, overwork, anxiety, sleeplessness, pain, stress and the noise of our hyper-stimulated lives.

It truly changed my life. For 90 minutes (yes, 90!) I floated effortlessly in a tranquil, warm, 10-inch bath of Epsom salt and for the first time I felt the profound peace of quiet, solitude, and utter relaxation.

Back health has always been an issue. Now after a solid month of regular visits I have gone a full week between visits with have had absolutely no pain. Something I haven’t experienced in a very long time.
