There's not a lot of instruction given, and it would be nice for them to provide some reminders (i.e. bring a towel with you when you get out of the float pod, bring a brush to comb your hair afterward).

Fun! But location isn't the greatest (basement of building & surroundings). Street parking is easy, tho!

It was interesting, but I think too overhyped in terms of expectations. It was a cool sensation to feel weightless, and nice to have some time to float there and think, but nothing life-altering. Don't get your expectations too high!

Appointment was for 2:30 p.m. And no one showed up. Friend and I waited until 2:40 p.m. to ask other businesses if anyone worked at Float Matrix. A young lady across the way called the owner. She was told they don't open until 3 p.m.! Sauna was uneventful and my guest was unable to use it because it was so small. Float was cold and my friend and I didn't float, we kept sinking. So, cold and not floating. Not a good first impression.

The staff was awesome and very helpful. It was a good experience and I would like to go back. I can't remember the girl's name who helped, but I know she was born in Bosnia. She made the experience welcoming and I felt reassured by her. So kind and helpful yet not overly so. I went with my son and she helped us as we were there during the same session but in separate pods. It went very smoothly.

Second time is definitely much easier. First time you really do have to get the feel; this second time around I hopped right in and got right into a float. Just be careful not to get any water into your eyes or even near them, trust me.

I tried to cancel after finding out location was only in city. When purchased, groupon showed as 3 mi away in Dublin. Not relaxing to drive 3 hr round trip with gas tolls parking!!!

My floatation pod had a green light shining through witch distorted my full experience. The staff apologiezed and explained to me that a piece of tape fell off on the outside of the pod letting light shine in. I would like a full refund or a free 1 hour floatation experience again so I can experience how it is suppose to be experienced. I see myself returning as a frequent customer. I have been looking forward to experiencing what float matrix has to offer and I feel like I wasn't given the full experience. I hope to hear from your staff a shortly. Salbernal27@yahoo.com

This place is great. There's only one shower so you sometimes have to wait, but the place is clean, calming, and an awesome experience. The staff is super nice.

From Our Editors

"I stepped out of the pod feeling almost absurdly peaceful and relaxed, wanting to do nothing more than just sit in a park somewhere and be happy and grateful." So said Mark Lukach of 7x7 after two float sessions in the 30% Epsom-salts water at Float Matrix. Named the Best Place to Alter Your Consciousness in 2010 by SF Weekly, the center lets visitors unburden themselves of stress in a soundproof, lightproof pod designed to simulate weightlessness and send brainwave patterns into a soothing theta state. The process has been scientifically researched and is based on a phenomenon called Restricted Environmental Stimulation Technique, or REST—a deeply relaxed state in which the body is believed to divert freed-up resources to address cognitive function, creativity, and conditions such as pain and broken telekinesis actuators.

Owner Kane Mantyla told Lukach, "Floating is a lot like experiencing ‘nothing,’ and there is no set narrative for ‘nothing’ in our culture.” Mantyla was inspired to found the center in 2006, after experiencing a profound healing from his own pain. He has since facilitated more than 10,000 floats, helping clients share in the blissful nothingness in a tranquil, clean environment. The saltwater—which is mostly sterile to begin with—is sanitized after each session with compound filtration, ozone, and a small amount of hydrogen peroxide. Not content to only provide one path to relaxation, the center also promotes wellness via infrared-sauna sessions.
