Commence obsessive mission to bring this amazing relaxation technique to the great people of Philadelphia, culminating in the place our city’s floaters now call home, Halcyon Floats.
What is Floating?
FLOATING, or Sensory Deprivation Therapy, is a relaxation and healing practice that involves restricting sensory input to achieve a deepened meditative state and pain relief. Our custom float rooms are filled with 10 inches of a highly concentrated Epsom saltwater solution. The density that results from almost 1300lbs of Epsom salt makes you completely buoyant as the healing solution supports your entire body along it’s natural supine curvature; you’re weightless in the float. The solution is skin sensor neutral, about 93.5 to 95.5 degrees, so you lose physical sensation of your own body, including aches and pains you may be use to feeling. The float spaces are sound-proof and quiet, lights can be turned off to achieve the perfect environment to rest the senses. Within the first thirty minutes of your float, you notice a dramatic drop in your stress level and an increase in your overall serenity, as the Epsom Salt solution works to heal and detox your body, and the floating position releases tension and pressure from your joints and muscles.
