Our Float Rooms

We have 2 private float suites that are fully equipped with custom built showers and all the amenities you will need. Our rooms have been custom designed to reduce external stimuli, with state-of-the-art sound reduction material. Outside noise is reduced dramatically and you will feel like you are in a whole new world.

Our suites are individual float rooms - these are not "tanks or pods" but more like a personal pool. The unique wave design of the interior offers wide open space at the head level - almost six feet tall from floor to ceiling. Guests have the option to control the underwater lighting from inside the float room - seven different color therapy light options are available or simply turn off for no light. You have the option to float with music on or off. It will be set to only play the first few minutes and then again to bring you back from your float, the music will turn on softly, letting you know it is time to exit the float. Please let the front desk know if you would like music on the entire time. There is also a fully integrated communication control that leads to the front desk in case there is a reason to reach our staff. The guest is complete control.

What to Bring

All necessities are provided to our guests at no charge including towels, ear plugs, cotton swabs, petroleum jelly (to cover small cuts), organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash, deodorant, body lotion, hair dryers, hair straighteners make up remover wipes. We will not supply a hair brush or comb, if you will need one, please bring one along with you. 

We have one goal in mind. That is to provide Lake County with an environment free of all stimuli, a place to unwind and reboot. Turn off your cell phone, take a moment to relax, breath and Just Be.

Benefits of Floating

Removing of all sensory input allows the Flight & Fight part of your brain to relax, allowing the creative, relaxed response of your brain to become active. Without the constant pressure of analyzing the world around you, your body lowers to its levels of cortisol, the main chemical component of stress. Your brain also releases elevated levels of dopamine and endorphins, the neurotransmitters of happiness. Here are some of the benefits:

The tank suppresses the functioning of the sympathetic nervous system which when active produces our fight or flight response. And it then activates the parasympathetic nervous system which is responsible for relaxation, healing, replenishment, etc. Some physical symptoms of the relaxation response are decreased muscle tension, decreased blood pressure, decreased stress hormones, and increased endorphins.

Arthritis, back pain, neck pain, tendinitis, bursitis, fibromyalgia, inflammation, and psychosomatic pain relief have all been documented during tank use.

Immune function is enhanced by suppressing stress hormones which not only weaken the immune system but also suppress the digestion and reproductive systems. Floating has been shown to increase ones immune functions.

Floating increases circulation to extremities, promotes greater elimination of metabolic by products, decreases the forces of gravity to help promote greater muscular relaxation, and it can prevent the body of feeling fatigue.

Floating decreases chronic muscle tension and creates greater awareness of less noticeable areas of muscle tension.

The extremely high concentration of Epsom salts are absorbed through skin and can actually supplement your diet for a mineral that has been shown to be deficient in the average populations diet. Magnesium can prevent cardiovascular disease, regulate high blood pressure, prevent osteoporosis, relieve menopause symptoms, provide PMS relief, and is involved with detoxification.

Although floating is not zero-gravity (like outer space), the density of the Epsom Salt solution does create the maximal amount of the forces of gravity to be dispersed across the greatest surface area of the body. Rigid postures and chronic muscular tension from daily life can cause ailments such as lower-back pain, neck pain, shallow breathing, high blood pressure, etc. The antigravity environment of the float tank disperses forces to the smallest amount and thus decreases the source of gravity-related stimulation to the minimum possible value providing relief to these specific areas.

Meditation has a ton of researched benefits and floating is a unique and phenomenal tool to cultivate mental stillness. It often generates a sensation of being intensely awake yet extremely relaxed; presence. It can induce theta-state brainwaves and allows for one to remain conscious in this frequency instead of falling asleep. Floating may induce an altered state of consciousness.

The tanks environment eliminates as much external input as possible. It lets your nervous system have a break. In a city with a constant buzz or hum, our systems rarely experience (if ever) the isolation and silence that the tanks environment provides. Having this experience can be very refreshing, nourishing and healthy for our bodies and minds. We are well adapted for acute stress, however, for chronic stressors such as noise and air pollution; business, social, and family pressures; war; unemployment; street crime fear; general antagonism between the sexes; we are not well adapted and have been cited to be a cause of several forms of disease.

Floating is a great way to bring greater awareness to various patterns of behavior. Floating has shown to have beneficial effects such as decreased anxiety and depression; increased calmness or sense of well-being; it has shown fantastic results towards anti-smoking assistance as well as positive effects

Floating and the relaxation response it induces flood the body with endorphins. These neurotransmitters are responsible for relieving us from pain, enhancing our mood (decreasing feelings of depression to potentially generating feelings of euphoria), they can suppress our appetite, and decrease anxiety leaving us in a calm and clear state of being.

From managing chronic stress and inducing a natural calm, to facilitating introspection and identifying various less-serving modes of thinking, many people report drastically improved sleeping abilities. The change in your physical state and your mental outlook may provide you with a healthier perspective in which to put your body and mind to rest much easier each night if sleeping is an issue. Also, 90 minutes in the tank can feel like 6-8 hours of sleep. It is extremely therapeutic, refreshing and rejuvenating. So if you pulled an all-nighter, suffer from insomnia or have a baby who never lets you sleep the night through, floating can help make up for any lack of sleep you may experiencing. Not having to fight gravity lets your muscles, joints, and bones take a well-deserved break. Your body suddenly has loads of extra resources (usually spent supporting your weight, regulating temperature, and trying not to get speeding tickets), which it gets to focus on things like healing and resting.

Without gravity pushing you down all the time, your spine lengthens an inch, chronic pain is relieved, and your muscles get to fully rest. Unlike lying on a mattress, lying in water allows blood to flow freely all throughout your body. There’s no need to readjust your position to get comfortable.

About 40 minutes into your float your brain stops producing its normal Alpha waves and starts churning out Theta waves. These are responsible for that ‘between waking-and-sleeping’ state, and you make them naturally every night before you conk out. While it only lasts for a few sparse moments in your bed, you can achieve a prolonged Theta state in the tank, a state of consciousness that is usually only seen in children and people who have spent years practicing meditation. Even the magnesium-based Epsom salts we use in the tank are good for you. They soften and replenish your skin, and help counteract the magnesium deficiency that most of us have.
