is a safe space where you can get away and recharge your mind and body. A float is 60 or 90-minutes of total silence in a gravity-free environment…no stress, no noise, no interruptions. Floating is supported by science and has immediate and long-lasting benefits. Nirvana Float spa has been meticulously engineered to deliver results through a premium float experience.
The float pod is a large, enclosed, salt water bath that minimizes sensory input to the brain. The water is the same temperature as your body, so you will eventually not be able to tell where your body ends and the water begins.
With the lights off and soundproofed walls, the float pod gives your body, mind, and soul an environment to heal and rejuvenate, unlike any other experience you’ve had. No phones, no internet, no television, no noise, just an hour or 90 minutes of… nothing.
This meditative experience has been shown to facilitate powerful healing, deep relaxation, pain relief, self-improvement, and numerous other benefits listed below under Floating Benefits.
Why Float ?
Scientific studies on floating confirm it helps balance your chemistry, neurology, and physiology. Floating safely replenishes your levels of magnesium, which regulates the absorption of other minerals and over 300 biochemical reactions in the body through its role as an enzyme co-factor. Stress depletes what little magnesium we get through our diet, literally leading to a feedback loop of further stress.
The magnesium helps to produce serotonin, a mood-elevating chemical within the brain that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation. The mind can slip into a meditative brain wave state of Theta and Delta (between waking and sleep), typically without losing consciousness. It is a deep, pleasurable release into a safe, comfortable place.
As an antidote to personal and societal demands, multi-tasking and over-stimulation of the senses, floating can help you effectively and quickly let go of stress. Stress drains the body of magnesium and increases levels of adrenaline. When dissolved in warm water, Epsom salt is absorbed through the skin and replenishes the level of magnesium in the body.
Floating triggers a “reset” for the body and mind’s homeostasis– so in whatever way you may be out of balance – structural, neuro-chemical, metabolic, floating helps you to come back toward your particular baseline center. Although there are no guarantees, floating may be an important element in your unique healing process.
Floating will give you a shortcut to lucid dreaming. And many clients remark how much more vivid their dreams are after a session in a flotation tank.
There are studies and indications that floating helps specific conditions such as hypertension, fibromyalgia, neurological and endocrine disorders, structural imbalance, sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression.
Many people utilize the float tank as a time for prayer and reflection. For some, it is the only time they get to be by themselves and really let go of fears and distraction.
Floating can be of great benefit in athletic training. By promoting optimal utilization of resources to support focus, as well as physical and mental recovery, it effectively allows the body to regain a state of homeostasis.
By soaking in our tanks, the salt helps flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances.
Floating is a perfect complement to any treatment, traditional and alternative, accelerating and amplifying the healing process; Mentally, Physically, and Spiritually. Floating has the possibility to capitalize on the body’s utilization of resources for detoxification and restoration.
Get prepared to float
What to expect
Floating with us is a breeze. Upon arrival you will check in and be shown to your private room where you will shower and float. We ask that you shower before you enter the float tank. After showering, enter the tank completely nude, close the pod and relax. That’s it!
As your float comes to an end, calming music will begin to play letting you know that your session is over. When you exit the tank, we advise showering again to remove the salt from your skin and you will be on your way back into the world renewed.
