Nirvana Float

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 ?

Floating benefits

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.

RELAXATION

RELAXATION

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.

stress

STRESS

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.

meditation

MEDITATION

Many skilled meditators proclaim floating to be the “fast track” to meditation. Within as little as 10 minutes, floating can induce a deep meditative state. Floating can be passive or active, depending on the purpose.

PAIN

The uniquely supportive float environment may serve to release pain induced protective “body armor,” induce feel good endorphin’s and re-establish homeostasis.

homeostasis

HOMEOSTASIS

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.

dreaming

LUCID DREAMING

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.

medical-condition

MEDICAL CONDITIONS

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.

solitude

SOLITUDE

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.

athletics

ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

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.

toxins

TOXINS

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.

healing

HEALING

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.

SHAVING

For men, avoid shaving your face at least 6 hours before you float. For women, avoid shaving your body at least 12 hours before your float. Any lesions will be distracting due to the Epsom salt sting.

EATING

A super full stomach is not great for floating, nor is an empty of stomach. Having a light, easily digestible meal 1.5 to 2 hours pre-float is probably ideal.

COUPLING ACTIVITIES

We have found performing physical activity (yoga, cardio, or resistance training) before you float could greatly enhance the floating experience. Your body has expended pent-up energy, muscles and tissues are loose and flowing with blood, your mind is clear and calm. Combining floating to this state can potentially create a deeper state of meditation.

POSITIONS

The most important thing is to get comfortable. There are only two real positions in the tank: With your arms at your side, or arms over-head. Try to position your body in the middle of the tank to avoid “ping-ponging” from side to side. Once you like your position and feel comfortable try to remain still and consciously relax all of your muscles.

RESTROOM

Be sure to use the restroom prior to showering and before you enter the float tank.

SMOKING

Smoking just prior to your float may stimulate you too much. Even if you are craving a cigarette the tank may very well suppress your craving. However, you’ll need to figure out what the best formula is for you and your biochemistry.

CAFFEINE

Definitely avoid having caffeine before you float. The stimulation you experience from caffeine is the exact opposite way you’ll want to be when you are in the tank. By the end of your float you most likely will not feel like you need your fix.

BREATHING

Your breath can be an amazing tool for calming the mind and relaxing the body. Try to breathe primarily from your nose. At first, you can consciously take deep breaths, but once you settle into your experience try less to manipulate the breath and more just observing the breath. Your body will always remember to breath, there is no need to control your breath.

LET GO

Don’t "try" to do anything in the tank, don’t force something to happen, don’t expect something to happen; this is the exact opposite direction from where you may want to go while in the tank. You will not fall asleep necessarily, just be present. Repetition of a focus word such as “peace”, “relax”, or “let go” spoken in your mind in unison with your exhalation can help at first, but the message here is to just let go of conscious control.

SENSITIVITY

With external stimuli at a minimum, your nervous system will turn up the volume to try and sense anything. Since there is still “nothing” coming in, this is a great opportunity to simply sense whatever is left to be felt within your internal body. Feel your arms, legs, torso, head, as intensely as possible. Observe your thoughts, emotions and sensations.
