Taking care of others can result in fatigue of the mind and body. Shift work, chronic stress, a fast-paced environment, repetitive movement, and compassion fatigue can all lead to poor sleep and the decline of your physical and mental well being. 

Many of our guests, including nurses, use the float tank as a tool to assist in regaining some of their work/life balance by improving sleep quality during a shift change, relaxing sore achy muscles and joints, and relieving in stress and anxiety that comes from a demanding job or home life. 

Remember, if you don't refill you cup, you won't have anything left to give. 

Known in the science works as R.E.S.T. (restricted environmental simulation technique), floating is a therapy the works by removing all external stimulation coming into the nervous system. Studies have shown this environment lowers blood cortisol levels, decreases blood pressure, and reduces activity in the default mode network of the brain, a leading cause for anxiety. 

You can use floating to help treat anxiety, combat stress, treat chronic pain, re-adjusting sleeping patterns, or to just relax and get into a deep meditative state. 

Each float tank contains ten inches of water and over 850 lbs of Epsom salt, creating a solution so buoyant, you float effortlessly and achieve a sensation of weightlessness. 

The solution is heated to skin temperature. This, along with the restriction of all light and sound creates a pure state of 'sensory' relaxation. 

It should be noted that our float tanks are very large and should not be compared to tanning beds. They are extremely spacious and much more similar in size to a small car. 

The enclosure helps maintain air temperature and humidity levels which is very important for creating a properly calibrated float environment. 

Under these unique conditions, more commonly referred to as sensory deprivation, your body has the opportunity to reconnect with its natural ability to self-regulate and restore while you lie back and rediscover the pleasure of a deeply relaxed mind.

No, you'll have a private room, so there is no need for a bathing suit and we provide everything you need such as towels, shampoo, conditioner, and earplugs. Also, you'll have access to an area with blow dryers and lotions to get ready in afterwards. You are welcome to bring other personal care products. 

We do recommend booking ahead to ensure you get the date and time of your choice. Appointments are available as early as 8:00am and as late as 8:30pm. 

You can call to book 204-477-6507 or book online.

We have five float tanks, all in private rooms. We can also accommodate you as a group of up to five if you'd like.
