The place is calm and quiet, the rooms are clean and allnthe amenities are included. The pod makes the experience more intense espcially when you close the lid, tuen off the music and the light then you really feel like you are floating in space. I slept almosrt the whole time. Beware the salt makes any little scratch sting/burn like hell though ! Overall a great experience and good time/price ratio 65$ for 90 minutes.…

I've floated twice at the Carmel location. Lid down, full darkness, no sound - but you can leave lid up or play your own music, if desired. Very relaxing and unique experience for people like me who can't float in regular water. Nice, clean, friendly place too. They've thought of everything to make it comfortable.…

What a great experience! Kenny was helpful and knowledgeable - thank you. It can be a bit intimidating but was an amazing relaxing experience. Once I was really in the calm "zone" I was at peace and very relaxed. A must do if you have aches and pains.

These float centers are popping up everywhere. This particular one is close to my home so I thought I would give it a try. I suffer from chronic spine pain and had read that this might offer some relief. The fellow at the desk was welcoming and went over ever step of the float experience. I then entered one of the float rooms and took a long shower. Everything you may need is provided: towels, toiletries and even petroleum jelly in case you have a scrape or cut that needs to be covered before you get into salt water. The pod is fairly large and you have options for music, lighting and to close the gap top or leave it open. The water is body temperature. The float experience did lessen my pain and offered an hour of total relaxation. Here are some other observations: The water is heated to body temperature, for most people this is probably great but it wasn't warm enough for me. Perhaps if the room was warmer that might have been better. Ear plugs are offered, use them. I did not and I could hear the goings on in the hallway and that was a distraction. My friend that came with me used the earplugs and didn't hear a sound. I felt like the airflow in the pod was lacking if you closed it all the way. It felt stuffy. But If you want the deprivation experience , you have to close the lid. Salt: it collects on you. You get a weird thick film of it on your face. Overall, it was a good experience and did lessen my pain. My skin felt baby soft for days. Also- I slept like a baby that night. I am going to try it again for sure... Hopefully they can warm up the water a bit.…

Thanks for the review Lisa! We're glad it could help with some pain relief, and you can actually request a warmer water temperature for next time if you wish. We keep it around 94° (closer to 95° in the winter), which is skin receptor neutral for most people; however, core temperature can vary from person to person and affect the relative "temperature feel" of the water. Also, just as a side note and not implying that this was the case, a very hot shower can make the water seem colder upon entering. Other than that, definitely let us know if there's anything we can do to improve your experience for next time!
