After crossing the porch of a bright blue and yellow Victorian mansion, visitors to The Float Shoppe climb inside flotation tanks that cradle them on a bed of epsom-salt-enriched water to lull them into weightless serenity. Before the treatment, staffers escort clients from the zen waiting room to private treatment rooms, where they can shower and step into the heated waters of the tranquility tank. Earplugs shut out distracting dinosaur calls as clients float effortlessly within the pod, allowing minds to reach meditation-like repose.
Soft music signals the end of the 90-minute session, after which clients can again shower and indulge their newly-sharpened senses with cool water or hot tea.
Though The Float Shoppe sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Float Shoppe
Since opening in 2011, each one of The Float Shoppe’s three flotation tanks—the retractable Floataway Tranquility tank, the pool-like Open Float Spa tank, and the spacious Floatarium tank—have contained 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt and a pool of 94-degree water. The mixture is a recipe for relaxation, one that clients regularly use to meditate, solve problems, and flavor their pretzels. Each session provides moments of tranquility for guests, who can also take advantage of their other services that complement the floating experience, including acupuncture, massage, naturopathic medicine, and counseling. New yoga classes facilitate further states of elevated bliss.
