During floats, guests can aim for a peaceful zen-like state of complete mental and physical relaxation by entering the sound-free pod and closing the door, or simply relax with the door open and the pod's lights on. In 10 inches of water—heated to approximate the skin's temperature—a half-ton of Epsom salts helps buoy the body and induce a state of deep relaxation. Afterward, the staff provides water and tea to help bring back a dose of reality. See a description of what to expect and a list of FAQs, including contraindications. The infrared sauna further reduces stress and can promote detoxification by heating the body with tissue-penetrating rays.

Float Matrix

"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.

This is by far my favorite float therapy place! I love the ambience and the woman that was working was awesome, helpful, and really knows how to make you feel welcomed and relaxed. I like the dim lighting, opposed to the bright lights at another venue I visited. The infrared sauna really helps you relax before your float and get into the mood.

I really enjoyed my experience. The facilities are nice, it's located on the basement floor of the building.

The people working there were very friendly and accomodating. The experience was wonderfully relaxing even though the pod was somewhat small so I kept knocking against the sides. When I came out, I was painfree, something I haven't been for years. I recommend float matrix for deep relaxation and destressing.
