What is Floating?

Our Ocean Float Room

Our customized Ocean Float Room is the elite of floatation devices and enhances the typical float tank experience by eliminating feelings of claustrophobia. The dimensions of the float room are expansive with 7 feet ceilings, almost 5 feet in width and just under 8 feet in length so that even professional athletes find plenty of additional space to float. Our Float Room offers fibre optic cathedral lights that create a peaceful illusion of a night sky with a variety of colors that enhance the relaxation response. Calming music fills the float room at the onset of your float (typically 5 minutes) to help you let go and adjust and again moments before the completion of the float, you are brought back to present time consciousness with gentle music that services to uplift and remind you that your floatation therapy session is coming to an end. Additionally, our Ocean Float Room is the first that offers a customized 2-way intercom system so that our director and founder, Dr. Weissman can directly aid those who wish to transform stress and challenges associated with PTSD, OCD and chronic pain syndromes. The 10 inches of pristine super saturated water is heated to the outside temperature of your skin, 93.5 degrees and has 1,000 pounds of premium USP pharmaceutical Epsom Salt.
