BENEFITS

 

DEEP RELAXATION

Floating in the pod, with no light or sound, is one of the fastest and most effective ways to elicit the body’s natural relaxation response and enter a state of deep relaxation. Your brain responds by removing undesirable chemicals and releasing endorphins stimulating feelings of happiness and well-being. Simply put, floating calms our overly stimulated systems and restores the body’s chemical and metabolic balance.

PAIN RELIEF

Research has shown that regular use of the float pod can help health problems that are caused or exacerbated by chronic stress such as fibromyalgia, insomnia, hypertension, anxiety disorders, and migraines. By invoking the relaxation response blood flow increases to all parts and systems of the body, including the brain, creating a whole body healing effect. Floating also provides relief from the constant downward push of gravity, the single greatest cause of wear and tear to bones, joints and body tissue.

STRESS RELIEF

Amongst the noise and craziness of city life, it’s not uncommon for people to be in a state of constant stress activating the “fight-or-flight” response multiple times during the day. This can be brought on by any number of events such as traffic jams, long lines in the grocery store, or looming deadlines at work. Over time, such low-grade chronic stress can lead to high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and muscle tension. Floating can help people counteract the toxic effects of chronic stress by slowing breathing rate, relaxing muscles, and reducing blood pressure. People often report feeling refreshed and rejuvenated and better able to cope with life’s minor annoyances after floating.

How It Works


The Float Pod creates an environment that cannot be found anywhere else on earth. During your session you are floating effortlessly in 1200Lbs. of epsom salt dissolved into 11-inch of water within a lightproof and soundproof environment. The water is maintained at the same temperature as your skin and after a few minutes you lose the awareness of where your body ends and the water begins. After you feel the effects of your first float you may wonder how something so simple can have such a profound effect on your overall well-being. However, the benefits of floating are backed by over thirty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance.

HOW TO GET STARTED

Set up an account, view prices, and book your float here.

Show up a few minutes before your scheduled float to be briefed and to have a shower.

After your float, rinse off the Epsom salts and enjoy the rest of your day!


OPTIMIZE YOUR FLOAT

Shaving

For women, avoid shaving the day of the float. For men, avoid shaving your face right before you float. After shaving, the skin may be sensitive causing distractions during the float due to the Epsom salt sting.

Washroom

Be sure to use the washroom prior to showering before you float. You do not want any distractions during your float.

Caffeine

Avoid caffeine before you float. The stimulation you experience from caffeine will inhibit your ability to relax and experience the full effect of floating.

Complimentary Activities

Performing physical activities such as yoga, cardio or strength straining before your float can greatly enhance the floating experience and help the body heal and repair itself. Combining activities can also allow you to enter a deeper state of relaxation during your float.

FAQ

Please contact us if you have further questions!

 

  • Do I need to bring anything?

No, we provide everything you need. Towels, robes, earplugs, body wash, shampoo, and blow dryers are all included. You may want to bring a brush or comb for after your float.

  • How is the water cleaned between each float?

Between each float session all the water inside the pod passes through a medical grade one micron filter 3.6 times and the 1200 lbs of Epsom salts in the water act as a natural disinfectant, inhibiting the growth of bacteria. We also use an advanced chemical free, 100% biodegradable disinfectant, which fully complies with all Alberta Health Standards and we require each floater to shower before getting in the pod to maintain the highest sanitation standards.

  • Is there anything I should do to prepare?

We recommend that you don’t drink coffee several hours before floating as it may inhibit your ability to relax. We also advise that do don’t shave or wax before floating since the salt water may irritate your skin. Other than that, there’s no specific preparation needed.

  • What do I wear in the tank?

Swimwear is not required while floating. You will have complete privacy as each room is accompanied with a shower and their own individual pod.

  • Does floating really work or is it a fad?

Floating is validated by science with over 200 published research articles on the benefits of floating.

  • Can I float if I'm pregnant?

Yes! Floating can relieve a lot of the aches and pains caused by pregnancy. If you have any hesitation or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

  • Can I float if I'm menstruating?

Yes. Just follow the same protocol you would for a swimming pool.

  • What type of tanks do you have?

Our Kensington location at 2 Float Pods and Marda Loop has 2 Float Pods and 4 Large Deluxe Rooms.

  • Can more than one person float in a tank at a time?

Only one person can float in a tank at one time.

  • Do I have to stay in the tank the whole time?

You may leave the flotation tank at anytime during the float for any reason. There are no latches on the tank doors making exiting the tank quick and easy. However, we recommend that floaters stay for the full 90-minutes to experience the full affects. Many purport that 90-minutes goes by quite quickly.

  • Can I drown if I fall asleep in the tank?

Nope. You may fall asleep, but because of the buoyancy of the water you stay afloat eliminating any possibility of drowning.
