Imagine an environment free from gravity, tension, pain and stimuli.
“Once I found Zero Gravity I came off of Zoloft all the way and I was on no medications at all. I’m more inclined to learn. I’m more inclined to be in a positive mood. It’s just really something amazing they have going on here.” Cody Austill – Iraq War Veteran
“The simple act of floating in warm salty water is the most relaxing experience on Earth.”
A float tank, or float pod, is a small, enclosed pool usually just big enough for one person to lie down in. The water is less than a foot deep, but has so much Epsom salt dissolved in it that it’s more dense than the Dead Sea — each tank contains 800 to 1000 lbs of Epsom salt to provide buoyancy.! You float effortlessly.  The tank is kept warm, body temperature, and it’s enclosed so it’s completely dark and quiet.  It’s your own private world. It’s utterly relaxing.  The lid may be closed or left open, you’re in control.
Float therapy helping veterans with PTSD Youtube Float Therapy
David Manfield Clinical Psychologist on floatation therapy and PTSD  Youtube

“Great news for police and police personnel. Research into Floating has proven to be a very effective activity for reducing physical pain and overall stress.

Floating weightlessly, and effortlessly in skin temperature water infused with 1200 lbs of Epsom salt is as close to the womb experience as one could replicate.  Benefits of one session are immediately obvious, and I can see now how floating on a regular basis can be a positive and uplifting experience, mentally and physically.

From my own personal experience living with PTSD, I noticed immediately how floating reduced my anxiety levels and other PTSD related disorder symptoms.  I had achieved total relaxation and know that floating can benefit others just as well.”

 Floatation REST provides an unparalleled level of relaxation. With the elimination of external stimuli, the central nervous system’s workload is reduced by as much as 90%. This reduction draws a person’s energy inward and promotes relaxation (the parasympathetic response). Old wounds and injuries are allowed to heal faster while increased white blood cell production strengthens the immune system.

The effects of gravity on your bones, joints and muscles are also completely removed while floating. This vastly improves your circulation and allows your body to rejuvenate and heal itself. Research shows that floating measurably reduces your blood pressure and heart rate while at the same time lowering stress levels.

Can anyone float?  Yes, everybody floats regardless of size or shape.
What if I’m Claustrophobic?  This is a very common concern. Remember you are in complete control of your float experience; you can open the lid or leave the tank light on during your float session. The tanks are also very spacious and offer plenty of ceiling height.
