WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

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.

I wasn't skeptical about the benefits of floating, there's a bunch of research to show an salt soak is good for the muscles but I was reserved. After a severe car crash, my leg and ankle were disfigured and permanently damaged. I've been in physical therapy and pain management for years. Only a complete nerve block for a related surgery has stopped more of my pain and constant discomfort than a 60 minute float. I got out of the pod and I could bare weight on my ankle like before the crash. It's been about 3 days for me and the effects are starting to subside so I'm going back. I've already signed up a friend who has musculoskeletal and joint issues and told as many as I can about how just one session helped so much. The ability to just turn everything off for an hour is good, but to have lasting relief for days is worth so much more. Im going back. You... You should go, just don't take my preferred time slots.

I am hooked- I have not felt this “zen” in years. I left my float experience almost giddy (if that’s a word that’s used anymore). I cannot describe just how at peace I felt for now two days afterward. I did not intend on getting the membership but now I am absolutely going back again and again. Here is my final two cents: people who have done a float will tell you up and down how great it is, but you absolutely must experience it for yourself if only once.

The facility is very clean and the staff are welcoming. The relaxation room for after floating is very convenient and calming. There is no rush for you to leave after either, so you can relax as needed. I will definitely be returning!

Went in for my first float last night. Lovinder, the owner, did a wonderful job explaining the science of floating and orienting me to the spa. A amazing experience from start to finish - from the soothing rain shower to the incredible deep massage chair and the details of hair and makeup station at the end. But I cannot say enough about my float. You need to take this hour for yourself and have this experience just once. You will not regret it. Husbands, this is the perfect gift for your wife who needs an hour to herself. If you have an overworked body or are mentally spent, floating will help you find the place you had lost. I have had terribly insomnia most of my life. Last night, I slept better than I have in 20+ years.

Everyone was super friendly, and the owner took the time to go over everything! The float room was perfect, lovely Zen shower and really enjoyed the modern pod! My hour was over before I knew it, but I was able to make use of the amenities, like the amaaaazing huge massage chair. I usually don't like signing up for memberships but this place really sells itself! Looking forward to my next float!

Amazing experience. Everything from the greeting, to the orientation and tour. Then the float session and massage chairs afterwards. First class, professional service. Will be back and highly reccomend to anyone who needs a quick hour break from life to focus on their self. Edited to update after Covid 19 shut down. I'm very please to see Nirvana Float back open. Seeing that the staff took all precautions to ensure safty and sanitation procedures. From very first thing when you walk in you wait and get your forehead temp taken then having handsintizer on deack before you enter back in the rooms or sit in the waiting area. I can't wait to get back for more floats in the future.
