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 results all can benefit from in as little as one session.

Enhance Creativity & Mindfulness
Enhanced creativity is one reason people engage in the practice of floating. A study found that six 90-minute float sessions allowed university professors to generate more “creative” ideas, which coincided with a self-reported increase in free imagery and remote associations. In another study, a single hour of flotation increased student’s scores on a standardized test used to measure creativity. Creative benefits are not just limited to cognitive performance – A study of jazz students found sessions enhanced their technical performance one week after the last flotation experience, suggesting the possibility of lasting benefits.
Alternative Pain Management
Another reason people float is to manage pain resulting from arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and pregnancy discomforts. Studies has shown flotation REST to improve chronic pain conditions by relieving pain and emotional stress for fibromyalgia patients, creating an ideal environment for pain relief with weightlessness and lack of effort, and providing natural traction for a wide range of spine-related injuries.
Support Athletic Performance
For decades, floatation therapy has been the “best kept secret” of professional athletes like Steph Curry and J.J. Watt to stay in peak physical and mental condition. Now at A Place to Float, you can experience these same benefits for yourself. Because no matter what stage you’re at – and no matter what sport you’re in – there’s every chance that floating will help take your game to the next level.
