What is floating?

In today's fast moving high-tech environment we are inundated with data, images, and endless forms of stimulation. Floating in a Epsom salt floatation tank for as little as one hour allows you to remove yourself from this stimulation. The result is a rejuvenation of body and mind that will reinvigorate you and help bring balance to your world.

Lack of appropriate sleep negatively effects brain function and has been linked to everything from ulcers and depression to heart disease and cancer. Floatation therapy is a form of "Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy" (R.E.ST.) and can help you make up for that lack of sleep that far too many of us experience on a regular basis. One hour of floating in the tank or float spa is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. You will leave the floatation tank relaxed, rested, refreshed and feeling great. We have the largest  floatation therapy tanks in the San Francisco, oakland Bay Area!

Floaters often mention the peaceful and euphoric feelings they experience after exiting the Epsome salt float tank. These effects can last from a few days to an entire week after your float.

About the Floatation Tanks:

The floatation tank, once called a sensory deprivation tank is approximately 8.5' long by 4' wide, and almost 4' high. It is a sound and lightproof spa in which you float effortlessly, like a cork, on the surface of Float tank10.5 inches of water that is super saturated with 1000 Lbs of medical grade Epsom salt.

The temperature in the tank is constantly maintained at 93.5 degrees, the same as your body's skin temperature, thereby creating a neutral temperature environment. Both the weightlessness of your floating body and the water temperature give your brain the illusion that you are suspended in air (or perhaps Jell-O, as many floaters remark). Your brain waves slow down to theta level, a lovely dream state, and the brain releases endorphins. Floating in a float tank will reduce elevated levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. The Epsom salt solution will pull toxins and lactic acids from your body, aiding in the recovery process and lifting your mood. Epsom salt has been used for centuries for its many health benefits

We have the largest enclosed floatation tanks in the San Francisco, Oakland Bay Area.
