Experience floatation at home or at a float center. Floatation tanks are known as isolation tanks, sensory deprivation tanks and float pods. Floatation rooms are the same thing as float tanks but are typically larger and have higher ceilings. If you are interested in buying an isolation tank for personal or commercial use, we list over twenty-five producers of floatation tanks and rooms. If you’ve never floated before, use our float spa locator so you can find out where to float.
You’re in control of this amazing experience. The room is private, and the light and sound levels inside the floatation tank are under your control. You can keep the door slightly open if you wish, but almost everyone who floats finds that keeping it closed enhances their experience. Read our FAQ to learn more.

A safe and tranquil environment. You float on your back and are always positively buoyant. The float tank or room typically contains between 800 and 1200 pounds of magnesium sulfate, also known as Epsom salt, which keeps you floating like a cork. The water level in the tank is only ten inches deep, and you are floating on your back at all times in warm salty water which provides needed minerals to your body.
Extremely clean. The water in a float room is far cleaner than the water in a swimming pool or hot tub because the high concentration of salts creates a sterile environment in which microorganisms cannot survive. Floatation tanks and rooms also include several well-engineered sterilization systems which filter and sanitize the water between each float. Finally, all clients are required to thoroughly shower and shampoo on-site before entering the float tank.
Scientifically proven to work. Floatation is widely accepted internationally as a treatment for a variety of ailments and conditions, and is supported by over fifty years of documented clinical and anecdotal evidence. On our site, you can view some sample scientific research articles and links, and we recommend you read online reviews (Google Places, Yelp, etc.) and testimonies from people who have floated.
Enjoy your float!
