Floating's more scientific name is R.E.S.T., which is an acronym for Restricted Environmental Stimulus Therapy. It is a form of therapy that involves removing as many stimuli for the person floating as possible. The float tanks are filled with over a thousand pounds of magnesium sulfate (epsom salt), filled with about ten inches of water and are set to the temperature of the surface area of your skin (93.5 degrees fahrenheit). The person floating is given ear plugs to cancel out any noise and once the light in the tank is turned off, the float tank is completely dark. The epsom salt allows the water to be so buoyant that the body need make no effort to float. The temperature of the water matching your skins own temperature, makes it impossible to tell where your body ends and the water begins. There is nothing to look at and there is nothing to hear. Your experience of no external stimuli in this setting is where the healing begins. Having no distraction from the external world, the floater's internal world begins to flourish. Your own body's natural ability to heal itself goes to work in this deeply relaxed state. The greatest benefit of floating is that it teaches us to look within ourselves and not outside ourselves for true health and wellness. It is a massage for your mind and a vacation from your body.

FLOAT PLUS PROCESS
You come into Float Plus and fill out some quick and easy paperwork. You will be escorted to your own private room where the float tank is and given a couple quick instructions, dry your face thoroughly after you shower and avoid getting the tank water in your eyes because it will sting. There is a shower in each private room. You disrobe and put in your earplugs before you shower, which allows them to better stay in your ear while floating. You are provided with all organic shampoo and body wash to use both before and after you float. After the shower, you get into the float tank, close the lid or keep it open, turn off the light in the float tank (a small switch by your head), and your float experience begins. When your float is almost over, you will feel the water begin to move and you may also choose the option of music to slowly turn on to let you know that your float is coming to an end. After your float, you shower, change back into your attire, put your towels in the hamper by the door and come to the front desk to check out or book another appointment.
Can I float if I'm Pregnant?
Yes, but always consult with your doctor first.
How is the water in the tanks kept clean?
The water in the tanks is some of the cleanest water with which you'll ever come into contact. The water goes through an intense filtration system involving, uv light, ozone, and hydrogen peroxide multiple times between each float. It is a state of the art filtration system that in conjunction with the high volume of epsom salt creates a perfectly sterile environment in which to float.
Can two people float in the same tank at once?
No, floating is a solo excursion.
Is floating legit?
