How It Works

Stress is a state of mental or emotional tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances. Sometimes we need stress to make a decision and reach out goals. Unfortunately, when stress overloads an individual, it becomes a detrimental system to the mind and body. High levels of stress over a lifetime provide a high risk for degenerative illnesses, rapid aging, and an overall decreased sense of happiness and fulfillment. Here's how floating can help overcome stress in one of the most natural ways:

A Whole New Level Of Relaxation


  1. Removes External Stimuli - Turn off external stimuli, resting your nervous system.
  2. Epsom Salts - Relax your muscles and joints with magnesium and sulfur, two super-minerals that allow your body to begin to rapidly heal and repair itself.
  3. Gravity Reduction - Float free from gravity and experience the sensation of weightlessness. Feel less physical strains and notice sustained levels of reduction in pain.
  4. Theta Waves - Feel your brain release tension and reach the same state of mind that can be found during REM sleep, giving your body a moment of ultimate rest and recovery.

  5. Reduces Stress Hormones - Lower your level of cortisol, the "stress hormone", while increasing your level of feel-good hormones, like endorphins!


Though both stress and pain seem so easy to overcome when looking at it from the outside, the work of actually doing it takes more than a pep talk. Floating is that extra boost, giving you a winning chance to take control of your body, your mind and shape your experience.
