Feel like you are floating away in space!

Floating is probably the best way to reach deep meditation. With floating you lose the connection with the real world and reconnect with your inner self. Highly concentrated saltwater and body-temperature water keep your body floating effortlessly. You feel zero gravity and no pressure on your spine. Your ears are underwater while your head is floating and completely relaxed. There is absolutely nothing to distract you. Your mind will wander to the places you could not reach because of daily distractions. Mid-session you will reach the deepest state of meditation. You will feel recharged and clear after your floating experience!

Q & A

Studies have shown a reduction in pain score in individuals with chronic pain. A 2006 study published in the International Journal of Stress Management also concluded that Float Therapy helped relieve stress-related pain, and the positive effects lasted months after the therapy. - “Effects of flotation-REST on muscle tension pain. – NCBI.” ​https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11854763​. Accessed 13 Aug. 2018.

Epsom Salts have well proven healing effects such as removal of toxins and lactic acid from muscles which shortens recovery time allowing you to return to whatever activity or sport you love at your best. The weightless environment allows the muscles and joints to relax increasing blood flow and circulation. Increasing circulation in the body has a number of benefits including facilitating faster muscle and tissue repair. - “The acute effects of flotation restricted environmental stimulation – NCBI.” https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23478477​. Accessed 13 Aug. 2018.

A 2014 study showed that “​Stress, depression, anxiety, and worst pain were significantly decreased whereas optimism and sleep quality significantly increased.” ​During your Float Therapy session, you are in an environment free from distractions allowing you to completely focus on your thoughts, breathing, meditation and relaxation. The decrease in sensory input experienced during your Float Therapy session slows brain waves until they reach the theta state, similar to what the brain experiences during meditation or deep sleep. - “Beneficial effects of treatment with sensory isolation in … – NCBI – NIH.” 25 Oct. 2014, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4219027/​.

Writer’s block? Need a fresh angle on a business deal? New marketing & branding campaign? Big trial coming up? Tax season? Research has shown that Float Therapy sessions may aid in increasing creativity. Your Float session is a great place to brainstorm free of interruptions and distractions.

The anti-gravity environment that is created by the salt solution enables the body and mind to fully relax. During San Diego Float Therapy the spine naturally straightens and lengthens, muscle tension is reduced and the brain enters the theta brainwave state that is found during the deep sleep cycle and is linked to dreaming. Additional benefits include: Creativity Stress reduction Aids in muscle Soreness Pain relief Relaxation

Sessions typically last for one hour, but we offer up to 90 minutes for an additional $25.

Sensory deprivation tanks are quite large, fitting Individuals up to 6’6 comfortably. It can be a tight squeeze for those taller than that, but with proper angling we can accommodate up to 6’8.

Yes.

Yes, you don’t want to go into the session hungry or overly full. We recommend eating within two hours of your appointment.

You can still float if you’re claustrophobic. To accommodate you, we can open the top of the float pod. You may feel a bit cold due to the lid not keeping in the water heat, however you are still experiencing all the benefits of the service.

It’s very common to fall asleep while in the pods and many find it to be an incredibly restorative nap. You are fully supported by the salt water solution so you have nothing to worry about. If you twitch in your sleep, you may get salt water in your eyes, so we have a fresh water spray to help relieve any burning. Our staff will call the intercom when your session is complete to make sure you do not oversleep.

No, it’s like laying down in bed. It might take some time to find the sweet spot in terms of body position, but once you do, it is truly effortless. The saline solution fully supports your head, so once you accept that and fully relax, the neck tension is relieved. We also include a floating neck pillow to help you fully relax. When in water, our natural instinct is to tense our neck and shoulders to keep our head above the surface. If you are concerned with this happening we recommend starting the session with the neck pillow then removing when you trust your head is supported. The saline solution completely supports your head, so lay back and rest, the neck tension is relieved.

No, our float pods are created for a private experience.

You can bring goggles and/ or a swimming cap if you are concerned about getting salt water in your eyes, however this may impact your ability to relax fully. We provide: Ear Plugs Vaseline for any cuts or scrapes Towels Shampoo Conditioner Bodywash

Sanitation is a top priority at LIVKRAFT. When the tanks are not in use, they are constantly filtering the water using Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) that kills and/or inactivates microorganisms by destroying nucleic acids and disrupting their DNA. We also use Ozone (O3) in our float pods. It has been found that ozone is 50 times more powerful than chlorine, while also killing bacteria 3,000 times faster than it. Ozone eliminates bacteria, mold and yeast, as well as organic material and viruses—while not removing dissolved minerals, such as the 1,200 pounds of magnesium sulfate in your pod! ‍ Ozone also leaves no odor, and reverts to pure oxygen once oxidation is completed, leaving no trace of its presence.

Though it is not recommended during the 1st trimester, float therapy has been found to relieve back pain in pregnant women during the 2nd and 3rd trimester. Always consult with your physician prior to undergoing any service.
