The Need for REST

Our bodies and minds are inundated with stimuli everyday – sights, sounds, cell phones, social media, even pressure on our bodies as we sit, work, walk, or exercise. We have never been more busy as a society and now we are increasingly plugged in to our devices, whether we want to be or not. We need rest outside of sleep both physically and mentally for our bodies to function optimally. 

How Floating Works

Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy or R.E.S.T., also referred to as “Sensory Deprivation,” is the process of restricting or removing sensory input and stimuli. The restriction of stimulation allows our bodies and minds to rest and restore in a natural state. You are essentially clearing the clutter and pressure of everyday life and are therefore able to reconnect. Research has also shown that R.E.S.T. aids in crystalizing thoughts, sparking creativity, and enhancing performance.

Floating feels like weightlessness enveloped within a pure, tranquil environment. The Epsom salt solution makes floating effortless. Floating lowers stress hormones, replenishes neurotransmitters, and releases endorphins, which induce ultra-deep relaxation. Many sleep like a baby afterwards or experience a lucid calm that can last for days. 

The first float can vary for clients. For many, it’s an immediate release and connection, with a feeling of unparalleled relaxation. For some, the first float can be awkward, requiring acclimation to letting go, both physically and mentally, which is a normal response. Our non-stop, digital, everyday lives do not support a practice for stillness. This is both the challenge and the necessity of floating! For all, however, floating evolves from a unique experience to an anchor for well-being, opening our body and mind to newfound serenity, clarity, and connection.

Each standard session is 50 minutes and our pods are fully customizable to help you meet all your goals for every session. 

Yes and we encourage that!

Your friend or loved one only pays $20 to join you! 

Our pods are large enough to comfortably hold two adults. 

Our pods represent the most contemporary format for floating and offer customizable options. You can dim the lights, turn them on, or off; close the lid or keep it open; play music, or float in silence. The experience is up to you. 

Yes we have two float pods! We made this change during the build out of our storefront to be able to accommodate as many people as possible. 

We provide all essential float needs. Our float rooms come with towels, ear plugs, and a flotation head-rest. You will leave with what we call the “Post-Float Glow” 

Don’t shave or wax the day of floating as the salt water may irritate your skin 

Avoid stimulants like caffeine for at least 4 hours before floating, as this can disrupt the relaxation response

We suggest floating in the nude to directly expose the skin. Our float pods are completely hygienic and private. Should you prefer, you may certainly bring your bathing suit. Some people like to wear loose, comfortable clothing so it is easy to get dressed in a post float relaxed state. 

Crystal clean. Our pods come equipped with the state-of-the-art filtration systems, providing the highest quality water available. The Evolution Filtration System is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size (smaller than a skin cell) and is FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration). Water is completely recirculated and filtered through two systems at least three times between each float, and the most up-to-date technology in UV sterilization and ozone injection systems are implemented throughout the day to maintain purity. In addition, we test the water throughout the day to maintain the highest levels of sanitation. Our pods are also seamless, so nothing can be stored within cracks and seams. Plus, epsom salt is antiviral and antibacterial, significantly reducing the potential for bacteria and germ growth. 

A healing resource for centuries, Epsom salt is composed of naturally occurring minerals magnesium and sulfate which help improve health in numerous ways. Magnesium is used for over 300 bodily functions and over 75% of Americans are deficient in their daily intake. During your float, magnesium is absorbed through the skin, the body’s largest organ, and aids in lowering blood pressure and hyperactivity, as well as reducing pain and inflammation. Sulfates, meanwhile, help the body flush toxins, form proteins in joints, and relieve lactic acid from sore muscles. Epsom salt is also a great skin exfoliant, leaving it soft and glowing.

No! 

In fact, it’s exactly the opposite. The float tank is going to provide you with a super charged dose of magnesium, which is an essential mineral for cellular hydration. After your float, you’ll notice smoother skin and hair – and a relaxed state of mind, which is a direct result of the hydrating effect of the float tank.

We have you covered … or not. Our Float Pods have a pivot lid that allows the lid to remain open or closed. The interior of our pods is over 7 feet long, providing a very spacious environment. Even those who lean on the claustrophobic side find it comforting! During a float session, the float tank may be illuminated with gentle, ambient lighting, and there is also optional, meditative music. We are big believers in there is no right or wrong way to float. This is your time to enjoy! 

We ask that you do not smoke 4 hours prior to your appointment. Smoking can make it difficult to relax while floating.  It also SMELLS and the smell is carried into the float room with you – which is unpleasant for staff & other customers.

Yes! You can let your dreadlocks float freely in the tank. You’ll want to make sure to rinse thoroughly after your float, as your dreadlocks will be very salty after your session!

Please test and ensure that your hair is not leaking any color when wet or washed before coming to float. The general rule is to wait 2 weeks after having your hair colored. This will preserve the water integrity of our pods, as well as your hair color. If your hair has been recently colored and is leaking, we will not be able to host you within the float. Cancellation fees and policies will still apply. 

If you have recently received a spray tan, we will not be able to host you within the float. The general rule is to wait two weeks to preserve the water integrity of our pods. Cancellation fees and policies will still apply. 

If you have recently had a tattoo, we will not be able to host you within the float. The general rule is to wait two weeks to preserve the water integrity of our pods. Cancellation fees and policies will still apply. 

Yes! Floating is especially enjoyed by women in their second and third trimesters, when the effects of pregnancy such as increased baby weight, sore backs, joints, and swelling can be greatly relieved. Since floating has been shown to reduce cortisol levels and increase endorphins, it can also be a helpful way to counteract hormonal changes associated with pregnancy such as insomnia, anxiety, and depression. Floating is a beautiful gift to give a mommy-to-be, offering an incredibly tranquil, rewarding, and inner bonding experience. As with most therapies, however, please consult your physician prior to floating if you have any specific health concerns. 

Yes!

If you will not bleed through a tampon in an hour, you are good to float. In fact, floating during your cycle is one of the best times to float, as your body is typically depleted of essential minerals, due to the hormonal function of your cycle. 

If you use a diva cup, ensure you are confident it won’t tip while you’re in the tank.

Yes! 

In fact, the salty water actually soothes painful sunburns and helps expedite the healing process! Which often turns that burn into a base tan!

If you have any significant open wounds, we will not be able to host you to a float. Cancellation fees and policies will still apply. Please reschedule to a time when your wounds have sufficiently healed.

It happens sometimes. The following are our best tips for getting water out of your ear.

First dissolve the salt: 

While it may seem somewhat counterproductive, you’ll want to flush your ear with warm water to dissolve the salt crystals.  Tilt your head so the problematic ear faces up, and use an eyedropper to fill your ear with water. Now wait ten seconds and then flip over so the water plugged ear faces down. The stuck and added water should drain out. You can also tug on your earlobe a bit to help slosh the water around. 

This method usually resolves the issue of water/salt in your ears. If that doesn’t work, try the following to remove water trapped in your ear. 

Vinegar and Alcohol Method

Using vinegar and alcohol has the added benefit of keeping bacteria from growing in the ears, which can help prevent ear infections. Mix one part rubbing alcohol with one part vinegar and apply to the inside of the ears with an eye dropper or saturate a cotton ball with the solution. Do not use more than three or four drops at a time. Gently drop the solution into the ear. Wait 30 seconds before tilting your head sideways to allow the ear to drain. The alcohol helps to evaporate water, while the vinegar keeps bacteria at bay

Jiggle it a Little Bit

Though it may sound strange, jiggling the ear can break any seal the stuck water may have formed and allow the water trapped in the ear to drain out. After tilting the head to the side, jiggle the earlobe. If this is not enough, shake your head carefully from side to side to dislodge the water.

Use Gravity

When all else fails, try gravity. Lay on your side with the water plugged ear facing down. Remaining in this position for several minutes can be enough to encourage the water to drain out of the ear.

Hydrogen Peroxide as a last resort! 

Hydrogen peroxide can help not only drain water from the ears but also remove earwax, bacteria, and debris. Place four drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide into the ear canal. Wait about three minutes, then tilt your head to the side with the plugged ear facing down to allow the water to drain. Never use this method if you have or suspect that you have a perforated eardrum, an ear infection, or tympanostomy (ear) tubes.

One of the first things people notice when they get out is a general relaxed feeling. Stress hormones decrease, muscle tension fades away, and feel good hormones increase. Sometimes you don’t notice all the results right away. But it is not uncommon to sleep better that night, or even find that things that would irritate you easily don’t really bother you as much (think Memphis traffic). 

Floating even once can yield great short term results. Floating three times will give you the best sense of what floating can begin to do for you. 

For the best long term, life-changing results, we recommend floating at least once per week. Just like other health practices (gym, sleep, diet) when you float regularly and within shorter time periods, the benefits compound. The difference with floating is that you don’t have to do any work.

We recommend committing to at least one float per week as an important time to clear your mind and calm your body. If you’re experiencing significant anxiety or pain, we suggest three floats within a week to stabilize your mind and body. The more you float, the faster and deeper you can achieve deep relaxation, and the more you can use that time and space for specific goals, such as meditation, problem solving, creative thinking or prayer.
