What is floating?
Lack of appropriate sleep negatively effects brain function and has been linked to everything from ulcers and depression to heart disease and cancer. Floatation therapy is a form of "Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy" (R.E.ST.) and can help you make up for that lack of sleep that far too many of us experience on a regular basis. One hour of floating in the tank or float spa is equivalent to 4 hours of sleep. You will leave the floatation tank relaxed, rested, refreshed and feeling great. We have the largest floatation therapy tanks in the San Francisco, Oakland Bay Area!
Floaters often mention the peaceful and euphoric feelings they experience after exiting the Epsome salt float tank. These effects can last from a few days to an entire week after your float. Join our FLOAT mailing list to the left for great specials on floating every 2 months.

About the Floatation Tanks:
The floatation tank, once called a sensory deprivation tank, now called a float spa is approximately 8.5' long by 4' wide, and almost 4' high. Our tanks are the most soundproof on the market, in addition they are lightproof. You will float effortlessly, like a cork, on the surface of 11 inches of water that is super saturated with 1100 Lbs of medical grade Epsom salt. Everyone floats, as it is impossible to sink in a float tank. No led lightshow, no gimmicks, just 100% pure sensory deprivation relaxation.
The temperature in the tank is constantly maintained at 93.5 degrees, the same as your body's skin temperature, thereby creating a neutral temperature environment. Both the weightlessness of your floating body and the water temperature give your brain the illusion that you are suspended in air (or perhaps Jell-O, as many floaters remark). Your brain waves slow down to theta level, a lovely dream state, and the brain releases endorphins. Floating in a float tank will reduce elevated levels of cortisol, the stress hormone. The Epsom salt solution will pull toxins and lactic acids from your body, aiding in the recovery process and lifting your mood. Epsom salt has been used for centuries for its many health benefits
