Let the world fade away and discover the art of floating, a revolutionary practice that allows you to let go .
HOW FLOATATION THERAPY WORKS
Floatation therapy allows the body to absorb magnesium sulfate that most of us are deficient in. Magnesium sulfate calms the nervous system and allows for better blood flow - resulting in reduced cortisol levels and released endorphins. The weightlessness and quiet space provides the mind with deep relaxation suited for meditation.
Modern day living is stressful, demanding, and at times, overwhelming. Many people are overexposed to outside stimulation such as bright lights, loud sounds, marketing, advertising, and electromagnetic field's from digital devices. Being subjected to this stimuli for long periods of time can leave the mind in a constant state of stress and create physical health problems. Being in a float tank removes these external distractions. The body is able to enter into a deep state of relaxation and the mind can rest.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The practice involves entering into a sensory deprivation tank where the body experiences zero gravity by becoming buoyant in 10 inches of clean, filtered, therapeutic Epsom salt water that is the same temperature as your body. As you lay in the water, your body floats effortlessly. You have the option to have all light and sound slowly fade away. By focusing on your breath (or nothing at all), the brain will naturally drift into a dream-like theta state. With 60 or 90 minutes of zero gravity, your body can relax, decompress, and re-align. The filtered water in our tanks is environmentally friendly and free of chlorine and chloramines. We only use pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt and meet the strictest health and safety codes in the United States.
FLOAT THERAPY BENEFITS
Since floatation therapy works to calm the mind and body, it is an ideal practice for those that are sleep deprived, work long hours, and need to re-charge. Floating naturally lowers stress hormones and releases endorphins, which can last for days. It also has amazing beauty benefits such as detoxification, muscle tension relief, and gives the skin a nice afterglow.
Anyone can benefit from floating. Those who love yoga and meditation can reach new levels of spirituality. CEO's and Wall Street executives can unplug from technology. Athletes and NYC marathoners can relieve muscle tension. Artists and actors can find new creative inspiration.
Other known Benefits of Floating:
Lowered Stress, Anxiety, and Symptoms of PTSD
Lowered Chronic Fatigue
Lowered Inflammation and Pain
Faster Muscle Recovery
Increased Creativity and Meditative State
Lowered Fibromyalgia Symptoms
BENEFITS OF FLOATING DURING PREGNANCY
What makes floating so great for the pregnancy cycle?
Floatation is a zero-gravity experience, which will take away pressure from the joints and spine. Where else can you take all that strain and pressure away?
Epsom salt water contains Magnesium, which helps the body feel softer and at ease. The Epsom salt solution in the tank helps decrease inflammation in the pregnant body due to magnesium absorption.
Being in the float tank will help you connect with yourself & your baby. Many say it feels like a womb within a womb!
We have special props that can be used to support yourself during the session if needed (they are demonstrated in the video).
Floating is great during first, second or third trimester of pregnancy. We still highly recommend you consult with your physician.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN A SESSION
Each session is customized according to your needs:
WHAT TO BRING
Guests are welcome to bring their own hairbrush and/or contact case as these items are not provided.
Guests are greeted by our concierge, invited to slip into a comfortable pair of slippers, and guided to our reception area to unwind before their session.
First-time guests will be asked to fill out and sign a Client Intake Form. One of our staff members will then review your answers, invite you to share any discomforts you are currently experiencing, and answer any questions you may have.
One of our team members will lead you into your floatation therapy room. First-time guests will get a brief walk-through of the room and be introduced to floatation therapy. Our staff will make sure that you are completely comfortable before starting your session.
All guests are given complete privacy and are required to take a quick 5-minute shower (with shampoo & body wash only). Pat your face dry with a towel before entering the floatation pod or suite.
Carefully enter the floatation tank or suite by using the handrails and allow yourself to gently lay back in the water. You have full control of the meditative music and lights from inside the tank.
As your body relaxes and your mind lets go, it will feel like you are floating in outer space. Enjoy pure bliss.
As your session comes to an end, the music and light will gently fade in as you slowly ease out of your relaxed state.
Guests are given 10 minutes at the end of their float to shower (with shampoo and body wash) to remove any lingering Epsom salt and get dressed. Complementary conditioner is provided for post float showers only.
Guests are invited to drink a cup of organic herbal tea in our upstairs lounge looking over the beautiful marina. Relax, meditate and take in the experience.
In 1954 American neurophysiologist, Dr. John C. Lily developed the first isolation tank that restricted environmental stimuli and suspended the body in water. Today floatation tanks are used for their health and beauty benefits.
THE HISTORY OF FLOATING
" Got to experience the zero gravity float yesterday. Let's just say it is an out of body experience that took me through time and space, to my mother's womb, and back to Jersey City. Will definitely be back. What a way to unplug, relax, and recharge. "
" The 90 mins flew by and I actually dozed off! As a severely sleep deprived stressed out working mama of two (including an 8 month old) I woke up feeling like a brand new woman! I have no idea how long I slept for but I feel recharged and super revitalized. It's definitely a different feeling from a massage or even a spa treatment. It was next level - a true mind body experience. "
“ After showering and getting in the pod it took a little while to get used to it. The controls were easy to use - music and lights. I ended up turning off all the lights (which made it pitch dark) and the pod is pretty large ( I could not reach any side even fully stretched out) - after a few minutes it really became a surreal experience and hard to describe how cool it is - total weightless, perfect temperature and complete dark. ”
