1. What Is AquaFloat?
AquaFloat is a flotation center with four private float rooms, massage therapy, and a full spectrum infrared sauna. The float rooms are equipped with their own salt water flotation pod and shower plus a fully equipped dressing room, complete with all amenities, including towels, shampoos and soaps.
2. What Is Floating?
Aquafloat’s floating pods are in private rooms and hold 12 inches of warmed water saturated with 900-pounds of epsom salts, which allows effortless floating and creates a gravity free environment. With very little sensory input to process, your mind and body can achieve deep levels of relaxation. You are always in control of the lid, light, soft music and environment.
3. Upon Your Arrival At AquaFloat
You will be greeted by a friendly staff member, brought into a float room and given precise yet simple instructions on how to proceed with your float experience. After your float, you’re invited to extend the relaxation experience by enjoying a complimentary tea bar, fresh fruit and lemon water in a comfortable spacious lounge.
4. Benefits Associated With Floating
Studies have shown that floating reduces stress, anxiety and depression. Relieves chronic pain, recovers sore muscles, improves sleep, eliminates fatigue and enhances creativity. An overall sense of peace and well-being rises to the surface of consciousness.
5. The Science Behind Floating
Studies have proven that floating in soothing, warm salt water in the absence of sensory input decreases the floaters level of the stress hormone cortisol- a hormone that fuels our “fight or flight” response- and increases levels of endorphins and dopamine-hormones stimulating happiness. As a result, mood and general sense of well-being is experienced. Our true nature.
6. Try Coupling A Float With A Massage!
Floating and massage are very relaxing when done separately, but they’re even better when paired together. Discounted package deals make it even more attractive!

“After floating in the tank for 90 minutes, I came out relaxed, rejuvenated and slept like a champ that night!! I will 100% be getting a membership here! With social media so heavily present in our lives, it was so refreshing to just tune it all out and relax.”
9. The Team Behind AquaFloat
Ted O’Neill, a pharmacist of 25 years opened AquaFloat after falling in love with floating himself in August 2014.
