Floating is a practice where you enter into a float tank (also called an isolation tank or sensory deprivation tank), which is a well-engineered enclosed tub filled with 10 inches of water that has 1000 lbs. of Epsom salts dissolved in it. Our tank is claustrophobic-friendly as you can actually stand up when entering and exiting the tank. You lie down in the water and float effortlessly in the nude. The water is heated to the same temperature as the surface of your skin so that when the water settles and you remain relaxed and still, you do not really feel where your skin ends and the water begins. The tank is light-proof, sound-proof, and has a neutral smell. All forces of gravity on the musculoskeletal system and nervous system are eliminated from the extreme positive buoyancy — imagine a space where you don't feel, see, or hear anything. The tank's extremely unique environment is designed to allow for a minimal amount of sensory input to enter into your nervous system. This environment provides a plethora of benefits and applications for health, personal development, spirituality, and well-being.
RELIEVE STRESS AND PAIN BY FLOATING Floating offers a unique and exciting way to relieve stress, pain, anxiety, insomnia, and many other conditions without the need for prescription medication. While floatation therapy has immediate effects, it also has a cumulative effect- helping you become more relaxed with less pain. That is why we always recommend floating at least 3 times in one month to experience the full benefits of the float. Health & Wellness People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more. Studies indicate that floating increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards. Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt. Meditation Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound. Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state. After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there with hardly any effort at all. Self Improvement People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating. With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing

NEW TO FLOATING? Float Tips: Before your appointment, please try to refrain from drinking caffeine and don't eat a big meal before you float. This will minimize your distractions. If you can avoid it, please try not to shave anything on your body. It WILL sting. If you just dyed your hair don't book an appointment until the water runs clear in your shower. Your hair dye will stain our tanks and we will have to charge you a cleaning fee. Arrival: Arrive for your float about 5-10 minutes early to fill out some pre float paperwork and sign the waiver if you didn't do it online prior to your appointment. Amenities in your Float Suite: Ear Plugs, Cotton Swabs in case you need them, all towels and wash cloths needed, petroleum jelly to protect small cuts. Body Wash, Shampoo & Conditioner, and Body Lotion are also provided. Some personal hygiene supplies are provided, (such as hair brushes and combs/picks, deoderant, feminine products and face wash cloths) but if you prefer to use your own, please bring them. Pre-Float Shower: Fully disrobe and protect clothing from floor (use shelves or hooks). Place ear plugs in your ears before your shower to improve the seal. Shampoo and rinse hair thoroughly. Use wash cloth and body wash to scrub all oils from your body. Do NOT use conditioner before your float session. Carefully dry face before you enter the float tank to prevent the distraction of water trickling down your face. Enter float tank completely unclothed. Float Session: With your ear plugs in, carefully enter the float tank using the handle. Sit down in the water and lie back gently. The salt solution is heated to about 93 degrees or the temperature of your skin. The solution will lift your body allowing you to float effortlessly. Adjust the light if desired and close your eyes. Let the water cushion your body and find a comfortable floating position - arms out to side, crossed in front, whatever works the best for you. Breathe deeply and relax, notice your breath and heartbeat. Listen to your body and be aware of how your muscles are relaxing over the time you are spending. When your session is over, the tank water will begin moving from the jets coming back on. You will also notice a cool burst of water when this happens. Carefully sit up and find your way to the handle or grip bar to support you as you get out of the tank. Prepare for post-float shower by removing your ear plugs and discarding them in the small trash can. Post-Float Shower: Enter the shower and rinse the salty solution from your body thoroughly. You may use the conditioner and body lotion now.. After showering, get dressed and proceed to the lobby. Before Leaving: Check out with a Harmony team member. Make sure to take advantage of our packages and memberships that are available for purchase.
