What’s truly impressive about float tanks is that almost every one of the benefits experienced lasts for several days, beyond the float itself. In fact, the lengthier the float session and the more often float therapy is utilized, the effects become stronger and last longer. In our regular salt therapy floaters, we can see these improvements, in person, at every appointment. Fortunately, floatation creates a positive cycle of recovery and health that simply works to reinforce itself, providing people everywhere with a path – and a means – to a better life.

If you are questioning, “What is float therapy and is it for me?” review the below sections, which will reassure you that our Float8 floating tanks welcome everyone – without discrimination – for this incredibly healing ritual.

How Athletes Use Floatation Therapy

Athletes who practice various sports utilize float therapy for its wide range of benefits. Not only can floating tanks help with recuperation after an intense competition, but float sessions can also assist with quicker recovery between training sessions, so you can get back to lifting, drilling and scrimmaging at a faster pace. In addition, floating regularly can help boost focus – especially if you are experiencing difficulties from concussions – and visualization tactics to improve your sports performance. Read More

Float Therapy for Parents & Pregnant Women

What is float therapy, and how does it benefit parents, specifically? The act of floatation can provide moms and dads with life improvement tactics, like making better decisions and reacting more mindfully. Additionally, floating can be a saving grace for pregnant women seeking comfort. Known for both its psychical and psychological healing powers, Epsom salt water therapy provides a haven of relaxation while removing pressure from the body, as well as external stimuli from the equation. If you’re a parent or expectant mother feeling tense, stressed and exhausted, consider booking a visit to a float spa, which offers a natural way to recharge and reboot. Read More

How Entrepreneurs & Biohackers Use Float Therapy

When you’re hard at work, making the time to unplug isn’t always a top priority. As business owners, our days are jam-packed with both scheduled and impromptu tasks. However, instead of focusing on how to reduce tension in our day-to-day lives, we tend to take on more than we can handle. With floatation therapy and other wellness rituals factored into the mix, though, you can work toward achieving peak performance, thanks to extra energy and improved concentration. Read on to find how successful entrepreneurs – including those who are known biohackers – use Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy (REST floatation) to achieve a healthy work-life balance. Read More

Float Therapy for First Responders & Shift Workers

As a first responder, you are designated and trained to prioritize the needs of others in emergency situations. Unfortunately, the busy life of a first responder or shift worker doesn’t always provide free time to visit a float spa, a massage therapist or your favorite yoga class. However, scheduling appointments for your own self-care is critical to your work performance, as well as your mental and physical health. Learn how booking floatation sessions can help you relax, recover and reset, so you can ensure you are always ready and alert for your important work. Read More

    I’m interested in flotation therapy, however I’m getting a bit of an anxiety response when I look at the tank online and I am not sure where the feeling is coming from. Would I be able to come in person and see how I feel about it before I book?

      Of course! We can’t guarantee that a float room will be available to view as we do fill up but feel free to stop by anytime! Keep in mind that you are in complete control during your float: you can get in or out whenever, open or close it anytime and choose to have a light on or off.
