You Have To Try This. It's Amazing!
Mar 2019 • Solo
Thank you for such an amazing experience. This was the first time that I have ever experienced floating. I love swimming but I have never been able to relax enough to float. My Float Zone experience was beyond my expectations. I have been suffering from pain do to multiple car accidents, triple hernia surgery and many other pains from past injuries. I immediately felt no pain upon exiting the float zone. That really surprised me. it was as if my whole body had been given some sort of pain relief/numbing agent.

Your facilities are amazing as well. From the private room with shower to the extra care you and your staff take to create a calm peaceful experience all the way the process.
My experience in the float zone was also amazing. Immediately, I felt myself floating as if I was being cradled in a hammock that was shaped perfectly to my body. I literally didn't want to move from that position. It was so amazing being supported like that. After a few minutes floating I realized that I was not totally relaxed. It was as if for the first time in my life I could totally let go, totally surrender control, and just relax. Once I did I felt a weight lift off of me, as I allowed myself to drift into a place of quiet and serenity. I have never felt so peaceful, and so centered in my life.

You were right by the way. After exiting the float zone, taking a shower and getting dressed, sitting in the room with the fire place was better than just leaving and getting in my car. I sat there for 10 minutes listening to the music that was available on the tablet that you provided. I again found myself experience the stillness of peace. Thank you for the experience. It has brought peace and healing to my mind, body and soul. You have found a true loyal customer. I can't wait for my next float zone session.

My wife and I will be purchasing more float sessions very soon, for us and other family members.

I wish I could do this every week!
Apr 2018 • Solo
I suffer from restless leg syndrome and pins and needles and found this place while researching ways to relieve these symptoms.

You can book an appointment on the website and they have a really good FAQ section that will answer all of your questions.

On arriving, I watched a short video on how to prepare for the float. I was then led into the float room where I showered and applied petroleum jelly to small cuts. (HINT: take this seriously, as I missed a cut and the salt really stings!)

I turned off the lights and the music and immersed myself in the salt water. (You can leave the lights and the music on if you choose) I immediately relaxed each and every muscle and felt totally weightless. I was so calm. Then, the most wonderful thing happened -- I could hear my heart beat. I focused on this to clear the incessant chatter of my mind. Well, at least I tried several dozen times -- I need to work more on meditation. I kept focusing on muscle relaxation and complete silence.

The hardest part of the float session was getting up after the session was over. I barely noticed that the lights turned on. Next time, I might choose to do a longer session, if it is available.

You follow the session up with another shower to rinse off all of the salt water and to shampoo your hair. They have hair dryers and a relaxation area too!

I would definitely recommend this experience. I would do this more often if there was a float center near my home, but unfortunately there is not one available.

Try this if you are interested in mediation and total relaxation. I felt relaxed for the entire day and night and did not have restless legs that night.

Dream state
Aug 2017 • Solo
I received a 1 hour float as a gift. My mind races and have trouble sleeping, so I was a surprised after several minutes I fell asleep and then fell asleep two more times. I was calm and almost euphoric the rest of the day. That night I slept through the night peacefully.

I found it interesting that I listed to the left of the tank.

Clean, neat and private. Very soothing.

Highly recommend!

Bought two gift certificates prior to leaving...good enough to share!

Loved the float experience at The Float Zone
Jul 2017 • Friends
This was a first time float for me and a gift for my friend who was also floating for the first time. The professionalism of the staff, the orientation process and the environment set me up for a very positive and enjoyable experience. I meditate often and have an active mindfulness practice, but did not immediately slip into a deep quiet meditative state. Curiosity about the float kept me fidgety for the first half of the float, then I found a very comfortable position and settled into more of a quiet relaxed period. My friend had a very quiet experience and fell asleep at times. I'll surely float again at The Float Zone. I found it to be a unique alternative to sitting on the cushion for meditation.

Clarity and serenity
Jun 2017 • Solo
My first float was a revelation - never before has my mind allowed me to meditate without distraction. I was concerned about how it would affect my rosacea but I needn't have worried. After relaxing in the lounge and rehydrating I felt focused and clear. My skin was and continues to be much more healthy feeling and looking. It really was a wonderful experience! Floating will be an important part of my self-care regimen.

I've now gone twice and can't say enough about my experience. My first time I wasn't able to clear my mind and ended up getting out early. Dr. Berv reached out to me and asked me some questions about my day leading up to my float. He then gave me some helpful adjustments and asked that I come back and try. I'm so glad I did! My second time I not only relaxed, but even fell asleep. When the voice welcomed me back I couldn't believe that it had been an hour already. I'm totally hooked and can't wait to come back from another float.

Incredibly relaxing, like nothing I've ever experienced!
Mar 2017 • Solo
This was my first float. i will definitely be back. A full day later I am still feeling Zen. It took me about 15 minutes to quiet my mind and then I was out. I love a good massage, but I have to say I think this was better.
