How does floatation chamber work?

Our float chamber is provided by Float Lab, the only company in the world certified for commercial use. It is a sound and light-proof environment that minimizes sensory signals; without any external information to process, the mind is redirected. The chamber is filled with 10 inches of water, infused with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt to create more buoyancy. This simulates a zero-gravity experience while floating, limiting the gravitational pulls on the musculoskeletal system.

What is floatation therapy?

Floatation therapy is a treatment utilizing a sensory restriction chamber filled with Epsom salt-infused water. The experience is calibrated to eliminate all sensory distraction and enable a stress-free environment.
