Float Therapy for Fibromyalgia, “A Miracle”

By: | Tags:

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder that affects the muscles, joints, and soft tissue. It’s very painful and affects just about every aspect of daily living. Our clients with fibromyalgia state that they’ve often tried just about every therapy and alternative solution they’ve come across before finding floating. Some are reluctant to think that simply floating for one hour would have any impact on their symptoms at all; however, we’ve seen life-changing instances of pain relief and healing. To put it lightly, we’ve seen miracles happen in front of our eyes. […]

One Breath: A Short Story on Floating and Anxiety

By: | Tags:

When I was 18, I had my first panic attack. I had experienced anxiety before but never anything that came close to a panic attack, let alone one that would completely take over my physical body. I’ll never forget the day when it happened—how my joints locked up, how I completely lost my vision and how I could feel my chest tightening so much that my heartbeat was pulsating up into my temples. This was something I never thought I’d ever have to experience in my life, but I did—and […]

How Often Should I Float?

By: | Tags:

What do we want? Better health! When do we want it? NOW! I don’t know about you but I’ve committed to my health this year in more ways than I ever have before. I’m getting up regularly with the sun, keeping my body hydrated, making healthy food choices, staying consistent with my movement practice and frequently floating.

It’s a Float Date

By: | Tags:

Our yearly calendars are jam packed with a whole variety of excuses to come together and celebrate but only one holiday is laser focused on that four little word called love. Valentine’s day has become a standard hallmark holiday with the very basic (and gladly accepted) gifts like flowers, chocolates and a prix fixe dinner date for two at that fancy restaurant you’ve both been eyeing. Why not try something different this year instead of doing the same old routine? Ditch the gifts that are “things” and instead, gift the […]

How To Float Like A Pro

By: | Tags:

The first time I booked an appointment to float, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had heard through the grapevine about this amazing healing tool that could help me destress and release body aches, so I went for it. After the float consultant dropped me off to Room #1, I knew I was in for a treat. The room had a slight salty smell in the air, the pod was glowing from the changing lights and music filled the room as the water filtered itself. […]

Floating: How to be Good at Meditation

By: | Tags:

For many of us, meditation is one of those elusive, mystical arts that is often married with the phrase, “I’m not good at it.” In actuality though, what does being “good” at meditating really even mean? Let’s start by defining what meditation is in the first place. Meditation is an acquired skill of the mind, one that takes dedication to continuously practice and one that reminds us to be present within each precious moment. Meditation can be guided by a variety of controlled breathing techniques, repetition of mantras and postural […]
