FLOAT THERAPY

TAKE RELAXATION TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL

Imagine yourself floating effortlessly in absolute tranquility.

NORTHERN MICHIGAN’S ONLY FLOAT THERAPY

WHAT IS FLOAT THERAPY?

Floating (or floatation therapy) is escape from sensation. A respite from light and sound, gently bathed in warm, shallow magnesium-enriched water. If you suffer from chronic pain, this is the relief you seek. As the mind craves order, the body craves magnesium. Vital to virtually every health function, magnesium deficiency is most often the norm. The lack of it cramps the muscles, drains energy and intensifies the impact of stress. Soaking allows magnesium absorption and lets renewal begin. Floatation therapy strips away the demands of the day. Stamina is rebuilt. Pain is relieved. Healing can begin.

FLOAT THERAPY FAQ

We will answer any questions you may have about Float Therapy. Please feel free to call or stop in and ask any questions or share your concerns. Once you try it, you will forever be hooked.

That tank looks scary…what if I’m claustrophobic / afraid?

It’s not as bad as it looks. The space inside the flotation tank is approximately 4 wide by 8.5 feet long. You are in complete control and can open the door and go in/out as you’d like. You can even float with the door open. Since there is an absence of space, time and sensation it is difficult to feel claustrophobic within the tank.

What will it be like for me?

We don’t know what it will be like for you since it is such an individual experience. Nearly every customer reports having profound peace and relaxation, deep concentration and creativity. We like to avoid saying too much before people use the tank, so that they aren’t influenced by what someone else says. Not only will it be different for you than it is for anyone else, it will be different each time.

Do you wear anything in the tank?

Since it is a private experience, most people don’t wear any clothing. Anything you wear will press against your body, becoming a distraction. In this regard imagine it as similar to getting into your bathtub.

What happens if I get salt water in my eyes?

It’s going to sting like hell. But no worries…you can just open the door, grab a towel, dab the salt water off, then get back in the tank.

How are the tanks kept clean and disinfected?

There is 1000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in our tank. Salinity is at 1.30 grams per cubic centimeter. The solution is so high in saline that no living microorganism can survive in there. After each session, the entire volume of the solution is pumped out and filtered through a three part filtration and sterilization system utilizing Ultra Violet light and H2O2. UV is the safest most effective system available. It maintains the water’s soft, clean and crystal clear appearance. In addition all clients are required to shower prior to entering the tank.

How often should I float?

While you can float every day without harm, we find that the relaxing effects of a one-hour float typically last beyond that day. For best results, we recommend regular sessions, and many clients find that floating once or twice a week provides the most benefits.

Will I be able to resume my daily activities when I get out?

Yes. And it may be good to arrange your time so you don’t have to rush. Many people enjoy savoring the peace and quiet before jumping into something hectic.

What do I need to do to prepare for this experience?

Most importantly…relax. The tank will help but if you arrive relaxed, the experience will be more beneficial for you. There are a few additional things to consider.

  • Try not to shave right before arriving. It isn’t the end of the world if you do…but salt water on freshly shaven legs isn’t the most pleasant thing on Earth.
  • Remove your contacts prior to floating (bring a container to store them in).
  • If you have caffeine before you float, it may interfere with your ability to relax.
Can two people float in one tank?

No. Flotation therapy is a solitary act. You would not want another person in your tank.

Will my skin get wrinkly?

No. The high Epsom salt content of the water means that the water will not draw the salt from your skin and cause wrinkles like a long bath does. Epsom salt has been used for centuries as a medicinal treatment for various skin conditions. It is non-toxic and is not harmful if swallowed (although it does not taste good!). Epsom salt is actually quite nourishing for the skin, which may feel silky smooth after your float session.

How long do people usually stay in the tank?

We recommend 60 or 90 minutes for first time floaters. As you become more experienced and aware of the effects, you may find that 60 or 90 minutes are effective. Others may want to float for 2, 3, or more hours.

Is there a cumulative effect of using the tank on a regular basis?

Yes. There seems to be a cumulative effect with consistent use of the tank. This is not documented by research, it is the tank users who know it is true. Relaxation is a learned art that needs practice.

Would I drown in the flotation tank if I fell asleep?

It is not possible to drown in the tank. The water is only about 10″ deep and has a very very high density of salt. This water is buoyant and will support you regardless of your size or weight. If you were to turn over the salt in the water would sting your eyes and wake you. Since you are floating you do not need to know how to swim. Additionally it’s not dangerous to fall asleep in the tank. We actually encourage it! One hour of sleep in the tank is roughly equivalent to 4 hours of regular sleep.

Are there situations in which I will not be permitted to use the flotation tank?

We will not allow you to float if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Infectious skin or respiratory disorders
  • Open wounds
  • Incontinence
  • Epilepsy or serious mental conditions
  • A high-risk pregnancy
  • Have colored or permed your hair within 7 days
  • Under the influence of any drug or alcohol
  • Currently menstruating
  • Under 18 without parental presence
  • We expect you to inform us of any conditions for your own safety and the safety of other floaters! We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time.
I’m pregnant. Can floating harm my baby?

Absolutely not. In fact, pregnant women probably get more relief from the float tank than anyone else. Just lying on a bed can be extremely uncomfortable for a woman in the later stages of pregnancy due to the massive gravitational strain placed on the body. The float tank is a wonderful haven for pregnant women. We do, however, recommend that pregnant women avoid floating during the first trimester. If you have any concerns about the effects of floating on your pregnancy, we ask you to consult and get permission from your physician before you float.
