Floating is one of the best ways to enter deep meditation and reconnect with your subconscious. The whole experience is to get inside a cool-lit capsule with water, relax, and meditate. Salted water will keep you floating with no effort, and the water temperature is barely noticeable. Rest your body and your head, hear nothing but your pulse and see nothing but your imagination. This experience is an ideal mental escape that you need in your life!

Today was my first time doing a flotation session and it was a great experience. I have heard many great things about the health benefits of sensory tanks so I’ve been wanting to experience one for a long time. I was worried that my height, 6’3”, would mean I was too big for the tank but that was not the case. Ian was also very polite and walked me through the whole experience and what to expect. They offer many services but today I booked the sensory tank to recover from some long, recent hikes and workouts. They selected the pod for me and I was able to fit in it although if you are 5’9” or shorter it would be especially pleasant because you would touch the edges less as you float around. The water is extremely dense with salt so you don’t need a pillow you float right on the top. I suggest turning off the lights and music as floating in darkness and silence is transportive. Make sure to keep the ear plugs in the entire float session and keep a hand towel inside the tank on the handle in case you need to wipe your face. Also another bonus that after you get out your skin is especially smooth. As I was showering and finishing up I can verify that the machine cycles the water through as I watched it work. Overall great experience and I plan to try it again in the near future.
Went for a sensory deprivation tank session with two other friends. If you do the intro 3x1 package, you save $20! The vibes were great, at no point were we rushed. Plus, they had many items to take the experience home.
Nurse missed my vein, filled my arm with IV. My arm burned and swelled, she told me it would go away in 2-3 minutes… 24 hours later, still in pain with swelling. Upon second opinion, this will take up to a week to resolve and if I hadn’t noticed the swelling it could have been a serious problem considering what was in the IV (like calcium etc) extravasation. They were super nonchalant about the situation and unclear. When I emailed them about it… they basically just said “we have a waiver for this”. I paid for this horrible experience (no refunds) and now I’m dealing with several days of pain from what is supposed to be a good experience in a relaxing place. The email I got felt defensive rather than helpful. I was really excited for this place. It has such a great vibe and such cool amenities, but I will likely not return because I felt the nurse did not have great experience and the way they handled it was also not great. I did learn through this experience that there can be some dangerous effects from simple IV therapy if they miss the vein, so I will also prob do this less in the future in general or be more careful about who does it.
Fwiw, I've floated for 7 years now, started at Nova Ctr here in Woodland Hills, Just Float in Pasadena, and then Annica Float Club and Float 60 back in Chicago. I have been to this new float place twice now. First time several months ago was perfect! Exactly as I expect a float to be. This 2nd time left me a bit suspicious because the actual float room tank had a sweat sock smell. First time I've ever smelled that in the float tank! Now, I'm not a professional maintenance person, but I did contact my previous float studio owners and was told basically it should not have this smell. Nor have I ever experienced this smell previously at any float. Now, nothing bad can happen to you bec of concentration of salt in the water, but I think that some work needs to be done in their float tank room filtration system. They do have 3 pods as well, but I have not used theirs. Overall, a relaxing space, easy parking, great location, welcoming employees. Just need to address and correct that smell in float room tank bec it's not the norm. I def will go back after some time before i decide to float elsewhere bec I recognize maintaining these tanks isn't that easy and hopefully this gets addressed. ☆This review is for my visit 6 months ago but i see some other recent reviews have experienced gross floating conditions, so I will be waiting longer before I go back.
I was lucky enough to experience my very first sensory deprivation tank induced meditation at this location! The staff was extremely friendly, the tanks were clean, and the meditation was revitalizing. The 40 minute session of stimulated transcendental meditation is a dream worth more than money!
