Floatation Therapy is essentially a way of achieving deep relaxation by spending an hour or more lying quietly in darkness, floating effortlessly in a warm solution of Epsom salt that is more dense that the Dead Sea. Float pools/tanks are also known as isolation tanks, sensory deprivation tanks &
REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) chambers.
Free from gravity and external stimulation, you are able to relax in a meditative state. You can listen to soothing music or float in serene silence in your private float room equipped with a shower. Floating is safe, all natural and therapeutic, and offers a multitude of benefits for body, mind and spirit.
Our Float Pools: Let go in the luxurious 8' Round Floataway Pools with optional ambient lighting and soothing sound. The Floataround pools are favoured by Dr Justin Feinstein of LIBR with their self centering shape giving that open ocean feeling. The round float pool of 8 feet in diameter is 11 inches deep and big enough to stretch the arms and legs, so it is ideal for gentle floating exercise as well as really relaxing. The high ceiling and open design prevents any thoughts of claustrophobia, ideal for first time floaters.

How to prepare for your float session:
My First Float
What will floatation therapy be like for me?
We don’t know what it will be like for you since it is such an individual experience. Nearly every client reports having profound peace and relaxation, as well as deep concentration and enhanced creativity. We like to avoid saying too much before people use our float pools, so they aren’t influenced by others’ experiences. Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself; therefore, you control your own experience. Not only will it be different for you than it is for anyone else, it will also be different each time you float. We recommend a minimum of three-four float therapy sessions to get comfortable with the floating and experience all the floatation therapy benefits. We have clients whose lives have been transformed by floating.
What to Expect & How to Prepare
Please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your float session appointment time.
Arrive 30 minutes prior if you plan on taking an oxygen aromatherapy or SALT Booth session to start the relaxation process. We will greet you, offer a tour and answer any of your questions. We want you to feel welcome and relaxed. We do not recommend drinking fluids before your session to prevent interrupting your session by needing to use the facilities or floating after a big meal. Don’t shave the day of your appointment, it might sting a bit.
Once you enter your private float room, remove your clothes and all jewelry. Shower to remove oils, deodorants, and hair products. All shower and float session items are provided for you. No conditioner is allowed prior to your session. We recommend if you have long hair, to tie it up.
Dry your face to avoid distracting water droplets, insert your ear plugs and step into the pool. Cover any small cuts with Vaseline (provided).
You have control over the light in the pool. Turn it off when you are ready to begin your session.
Lie back, resting your head into the water, legs extended, and arms over your head or extended at your side.
Your ears will be below the water line, but your face will remain above it. Find what is comfortable for you. We also provide a neck pillow should you need it.
A light will come on and a “bing bong” chime will come on when your session is over.
Exit the pool carefully, then shower again to remove any salty residue. At this point, you may now use conditioner. Once you’re dressed, please exit the room to make way for cleanup and the next floater.
You may use the bathroom for grooming. Hair dryers are provided for your convenience. We recommend bringing your own hairbrush, as well as any styling products, if necessary.
Floats may only be scheduled prior to a massage or sauna session to prevent oils from entering the pools.
