Experiences from real people who love floating.


As many of my friends know, I tend towards being a very energetic, high-strung, and sometimes anxious person. But last night, I had an experience. I went for my first “float” in an isolation tank at clear float spa. Truthfully, I was sceptical. The thought of being naked and alone with my thoughts in dark silence for an hour was daunting. Way out of my comfort zone. I did not want to go…

I was wrong. It was miraculous. No exaggeration- it was the most relaxed my body has ever felt in my lifetime. Zero gravity. Floating with no stress on any joints. I felt like a little kid floating in a giant bathtub, and realized about 15 minutes in (I think) that I had been smiling the whole time without even realizing it. The guided meditation/music also enhanced my enjoyment, and when the lights came on after an hour, I was disappointed. I could have stayed another 2 hours. Peace and calmness like I have rarely experienced. Then off to the “chill room” for tea, and discussion of my experience with other floaters.

I can’t wait to go again. I intend to make this a regular part of my spiritual routine.
