Zen décor marks the private treatment suites at ifloatspa, where clients separate from external stimuli and stresses inside tranquil flotation tanks. Guided by a new management team, float experts introduce clients to the Epsom salts–infused water and discuss likely effects of the treatment, including relief for sore muscles, decreased anxiety, and, if clients are forgetful, ruined pagers. Clients then shower in their suite and enter the spacious tank to recline for one hour in 10 inches of warm, filtered water. The deeply restful process can restore artistic thinking, stimulate the mind, and impart a greater sense of peace and well-being. After the float, clients shower off and curl up on a comfy couch with a cup of tea or coffee to discuss with a staff member the creative inspirations that materialized during the session.
iFloat helps clients escape the weight of the world by forgetting the weight of their bodies. Inside the spa's quiet, dark chambers, clients float atop a warm epsom-salt solution that creates the illusion of weightlessness. The effect of this environment is to slow brain waves, producing vivid imagery, creative thoughts, and an epiphany about how to make square dancing slightly more popular. There are other benefits, too; sessions can reduce blood pressure, stress, and anxiety. After flotation sessions, clients can relax inside a comfortable lounge and sip complimentary tea.
