The Importance of Water
Water is an ancestral, magical, earth-living spirit, which in silence, and as a conscious organ,
vibrates in harmony with its water resources, to endow our entire existence with life, growth, and evolution
Water is harmony, health, cleanliness, transportation, ritual, and nourishment.
Water is relaxation. Water transports, cleans and heals, nourishes and hydrates, and conducts energy.
WATER IS ENERGY.
Water is not only necessary; WATER IS VITAL.
At Vital Float Centre, our floating services can help you to unlock incredible mental, physical, and performance benefits that might help you to feel calmer, more creative, and more productive. Floating may also support the strengthening of your immune system, reduce inflammation in the body, and help you to sleep better.
What is Floating?
Floating is the process of entering a tub that contains a saturated solution of Epsom salt that allows a person to float effortlessly without external stimuli (unless requested). Floating therapy can be used for many different purposes, including meditation, exploration, relaxation, and physical therapy, boosting creativity and supporting pain management. Sessions are conducted in one-hour intervals.
Float Rooms are also known as floatation tanks, float pods, float spas, float chambers, isolation tanks, sensory deprivation tanks, and other related terms.

What to Expect
Floating is a transformative experience that benefits the body, mind, and soul. Below are a few things you can expect from a sensory deprivation float session:
Loss of GravityAt Vital Float Centre, our float rooms hold roughly one foot of water, which is saturated with approximately 1000 lbs. of Epsom salt. This expertly designed solution creates a density that allows for a person to float on the surface of the water. Some have described this feeling as 'loss of gravity'.
TemperatureThe Epsom salt saturated water is kept at a temperature of around 93-95°F / 34-35°C, which is the average external temperature of your body. When the water is heated to the same temperature of the body, the floater can begin to lose track of where their own body ends and the water begins. Neat, huh?
Light & Sound
The Vital Float Centre rooms are insulated against sound. When you turn off the lights, your floating space will become completely dark.
