About
Imagine floating blissfully in a shallow pool with no light, no sound and no gravity. Welcome to Float8 where people come to relax, recover and reset from the stress of daily life. We offer four private rooms for floatation therapy, a holistic treatment that reduces stress and anxiety, eases chronic pain, speeds physical recovery and improves sleep. By removing light, sound and the effects of gravity, floaters reach a deep level of mental and physical relaxation, which is ideal for deep healing and meditation, whether you’re an experienced practitioner or a novice. An ever-growing body of scientific research shows floating as a promising treatment for anxiety (PTSD, ADHD, addiction), chronic pain (injuries, arthritis, fibromyalgia), high blood pressure, migraines & more. Floating aids in the recuperation of the body & also helps with mental focus, creativity & clarity. Pro athletes including Tom Brady, Steph Curry & Michael Phelps use float tanks to perform at their peak potential.

Staff was friendly, intro and instructions were brief but sufficient. There was no wait. The lounge was ok, the website's prices for concessions differed significantly from posted in the lounge. The rooms was mostly clean and cared for. Shower took forever to raise about freeing. The pod itself was roomy enough, simple to operate however the seal was very loose allowed light through until the room lights turned off. Even then the sound of voices and keys jangling leaked through the room door. After the float, the shower lacked the pressure to rinse the salt and soap off. Floor was slippery, there were a few antislip stickers but not enough to prevent injury.

I called ahead to Float8 to confirm what they had to offer and familiarize myself with their services. When I specifically asked about whether these rooms were the pod style or the suite style float chambers I was told the "pods are just a stock photo, we only have the larger suite style float chambers." However when I arrived me and my guest were taken to the pods, which are cramped and not big enough to rest your arms over head or open up fully which isn't very comfortable. Amenities they explained would be in every room were not provided for us, and their staff said they needed my phone and email which I at first refused and they said it was required, I requested they not email or call, they did not honor my requests to not send me any messages or emails, which I am still unsubscribing to.

I don't know how or why the staff wouldn't know what kind of facilities they have, and more surprised because it would make sense as a "lost in translation" situation however they specifically said the google images pictures listed were "stock photos" and the staff explained they only had the suite spaces. I would not have invested my time and money if the staff had been able to accurately describe the spaces that they run and clean daily...

Hi Evan - I am sorry to hear that you had this odd experience with our staff. We have a small team and they were all regular floaters before being hired so they should certainly be able to relay information on the type of float tanks we have. We have 3 float pods and 1 suite at our Deerfield Beach location. We are an appointment based business so we do require a phone, email and credit card in order to reserve tanks. If you hit unsubscribe on the newsletter Mailchimp will not email you again. Do you mind telling me the amenities you expected and did not receive? We have towels, shampoo, body wash, conditioner, an ear rinse, body lotion, deodorant and hair dryers. If you have any additional questions please call the float center and ask to speak with Matt, Destiny or Alex. - Destiny

I arrived to my appointment and was greeted by Jessica who was extremely informative and hospitable. The whole environment puts you at ease the moment you enter through the door. It’s almost like an urban oasis. I purchased the float with a friend deal which gave my friend and I both a 90 minute session. The session was both memorable and far exceeded my expectations. I felt relaxed and collected after leaving. The place has a great vibe and is totally worth the cost. Very impressed with this place and cannot recommend it enough!

Total bliss!! I am fairly claustrophobic but I love meditation and I had a feeling this would be the perfect place to decompress and slip into a deep and peaceful state of relaxation ... and it was.

The pods are roomy and welcoming, and of course at any time you can choose to switch on the lights or open the pod door - I didn't feel a need for this; I relaxed immediately into the silky support of the water and floated off into a happy nothingness. PERFECT.

In addition to the meditation and relaxation aspect, other things to note:
* Joints and muscles feel fantastic
* Total release of tension in my upper back and neck
* Water supports you easily to hold a gentle twist, floating on your back
* Facilities are excellent - shower, lounge, and some healthy snacks and kombuchas
* No need to rush off afterwards if you'd like to relax - there's a meditation room as well as a space to read or have a cup of tea
* Everything is explained thoroughly, so you're well prepared to float
* The owners and all the staff are super nice - friendly and professional

I have been several times to Float8, and it's always a treat for body, mind and soul. Highly recommend.

It's something everyone should experience. The atmosphere of Float8 is relaxed - from making a reservation to the float experience itself. They walk you through everything you need to know - and are eager to answer any questions.This is sure to become extremely popular over time as word spreads. Would make a great gift for the spiritual person in your family - or someone looking to enhance their mediation skills.

I have only positive things to say about Float 8. A clean functional facility with a nice ambience, accessible, very nice people, website which works well and is user-friendly. Your float is quiet, which is important, and lastly a great value, Best prices I've seen anywhere

I arrive: taking in the store front wedged between a yoga studio and a pizza parlor.
A chuckle rolls to throat: always the juxtaposition of what can be contrasting elements of contrary choice: and glance over informational posters, locking eyes on a wooden panel behind glass painted in blue hues. Her eyes are closed, dark hair rippling around her head onward as I admire the process of a sketch affixed stage right, my left...

Float8 facilitated my first float experience ever, and I am so grateful. The space is clean, inspiring, educational, and a true gem. Float8 feels like a nexus of all that is healing and good, wafting essential oils diffusing a peaceful scent through the air upon front desk check in, a plethora of books perched upon shelves for inquiring minds, with offerings of tea and kombucha for the belly,and massively creative colorful pieces of artwork adorning walls for the eyes to behold. Oh... and the float! After a brief facility tour (which, admittedly, left me with tears in my eyes: so much careful attention and intention, along with expertise went into the creation of this business!) Staff Member R. Malone familiarizes me on some float guidelines. Earplugs, shower, be with the breath... after a prep, the float Suite felt like walking into a healing spaceship suspended animation cocoon: a magenta pink light illuminating magnesium rich Epsom salt water, gentle musical tunes welcoming one into something reminding of our mother's Womb. Surely, there are technical engineering wonders to pay attention to, such as the pounds of salt each chamber pumps through at specific cycle times, along with the way the water temperature is held at just the same homeostasis as that of the human skin.
Submerged temple deep in darkness with naught else but ... nothingness...
Quelling the all too familiar rise of non-nonsensical chatter and anxiety,
I stretch.
I remain centered.
I push against walls,
i remain still.
I breath.
I reorient.
and finally,
I sing
just as the lights and music along with a pre-recorded female voice thanking... me... for choosing Float8 pop on.
I exit.
Onwards!
Take on the World!
Be Awesome!

90 minutes is forever and nowhere and just a blink of an eye.

Showering and remembering the importance of self-care while carefully drying forehead and hairline, Eyes wander again, appreciating a sunrise.
An egress to front desk upon checkout. Again, the staff is friendly.
Helpful. Informative.

It is now two days hence this experience.

While a keyboard ticks along with these words, all I can say is...
Wow.

Thank you.
I recommend Float8 to Friends, Family, any and all alike.
Transmission out.

Such a relaxing, cathartic experience for my first visit to Float8 Wellness Lounge (2nd Float ever). As a float newbie, I truly appreciated the time Matt the owner took to orient me and explain the process, from both a logistical and theoretical perspective. He even threw in some handy tips that were left out of my first float training at another facility that made all the difference (ie put your earplugs while still dry, dry your face off after shower/before float to avoid distracting tickles, etc). More than that, the lounge itself is a soothing environment, beautifully decorated w an extensive art collection, all the amenities you could think of including snacks, a kombucha bar and toiletries, and impeccably clean. I enjoyed taking some time after my float to explore the eclectic book collection in the lounge and meditate on my 2nd float experience. Headed back for #3 today! Thanks Matt and Destiny for the clearly evident time and effort you put into making Float8 a warm, welcoming safe haven from the overstimulation of life.

"Cathartic experience" - we couldn't agree more! There is so much freedom in the float tank. We're happy to hear that the tips helped. Thank you for a wonderful review!
