If the idea of crawling into a closed space or entering an elevator gives you goosebumps, this video is for you! We have MANY clients that have floated with varying degrees of claustrophobia and guess what - they LOVE it.
While floating, you're in complete control of your environment. You may leave the lid of the Pod open for as long as you need, you have control of the lights on the interior of the Pod, and you may exit the Pod at any time...Plus, floating is INCREDIBLE for anxiety based conditions and - you guessed it - claustrophobia is one of them. Check out the video to learn more!

Good morning, float friends!
I took over the blog for a minute this morning, because I wanted to share a few thoughts that have been spinning around my brain lately. As many of you know, this has been a dream project for me - mostly because I understand how flotation can help all of us in our day to day lives. This is something of a mission statement, I suppose, but far too long to be a formal one. I hope you'll come and experience floating for yourself.
The image above most simply describes my personal mission in life. I hope that I am all of those things - to my family, to my friends, to people I meet in passing...
I hope that our center will be a physical extension of that. I hope that it's a place of peace and serenity, but also of energy and inspiration. I hope, if you come in with the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you leave feeling lighter and loved.
I hope that you understand that there's a place for you there. The real you....the most authentic version. I hope that if you don't know what that is, we can help you discover it. This center, for me, must be a place of acceptance.
If you're sick and tired of being sick and tired, if you've worn out your body, if you've pushed your brain too far, if you're exhausted - physically, mentally, or both, if you wake every day to fight demons in your brain that are trying to drag you down - I hope you find us.
I hope you know you can share your story - whatever your story is - and feel it's safe here with us. I hope you know that there's space in my heart for you.
I hope we can empower you to find your voice and step into your purpose.
I hope, that if you're a creative, you unlock ideas and visions in your mind that you haven't given your brain the space to see before.
I hope, if you're a healer of people - a doctor, a nurse, a surgeon, that your Pod time allows you to wash the exhaustion and sad stories away and re-energizes your mind and your hands to continue your work.
I hope, that if you're a responder - a police officer, a firefighter...a warrior against our America's enemies, you find healing and hope and strength to continue to run towards the danger and do what most of us can't or won't. I hope you feel our constant gratitude for your willingness to carry that weight.
I hope, if you're a parent, you find this a place of self-care and true rest so that you can continue to approach parenthood with love and peace and discipline and patience....and that 20,000th rendition of your kiddo/s's favorite song.
I hope, if you're a caregiver, our center provides a place for YOU so that you may heal and recover and revitalize yourself along your journey. You deserve to be thought of, and, you cannot fill the cups of others if your own cup is empty. I hope you know we have open arms for hugging and Kleenex for tears and time to listen if you need it.
I hope, if you've suffered with pain for ages, you can find relief here.
I hope, no matter what your walk or your path or your need, that you'll come into the shop excited for your session and leave feeling lighter and inspired.
I hope that you'll bring us your sore muscles and back pain and head back out into the world feeling rested and recovered.
I hope that, if you're anxious or feeling down or battling something in your personal life, the peaceful time in the Pod helps clear your brain, allows you peace, and helps you find your answers.
I hope that you find it a place of recovery.
I hope to see you all very soon and to have the chance to meet every single one of you.
Please feel free to share this message with whomever you think might need to find us. We're here for the journey.
All my love,
FloatPod Technologies has a great breakdown of their reasons for including an mp3 dock on the pods...and they're brilliant! Word has it that the SEALs are using flotation to learn languages faster - would that benefit you?
Check out what FloatPod has to say:
The Float Pod® is the perfect place for guests to bring and experience a guided meditation. Once the brain begins producing Theta waves, an ideal meditative state is entered—as a result we are more open to suggestion and visual and auditory cues. Floating has the advantage of maintaining an aware “awakeness” in this state, whereas we are likely to fall asleep otherwise.
This same deeply relaxed Theta state is sought out by hypnotherapy-based techniques, which thrive in the deepest relaxation possible. Bringing in recordings of affirmations and positive suggestions can be more easily assimilated when the brain is in this state!
It is said that “greater conscious effort = less subconscious response”—thus the effortless experience of a float is perfect for therapies that seek access to this part of the brain.
Speeches, Rehearsals, Dance Routines
While in the deeply relaxed state of a float, we gain greater access to our ability to envision and imagine.
Visualization while floating isn’t just for athletes—who have been using the tool for years to imagine themselves making the play, winning the game and more—it can enhance any type of performance. Speeches, presentations, dance routines and more are just a few examples. Using the Mp3 integration allows guests the opportunity to bring in the supporting audio for visualization (such as the song or a recording of a speech)
Have you heard of Super Learning? It’s been found that the ideal state to retain and learn information in is one in which we are relaxed—yet aware. Sound familiar? Yes, the Float Pod® is built for this, as well.
When the brain is in an Alpha or Theta brainwave state, our ability to learn material is enhanced. In the super learning state connections are more easily made, information is better assimilated and retention is higher!
Flotation is recognized as the easiest way to enter this state and remain conscious. Other techniques to slow the brain waves, such as deep breathing and closing the eyes are easy to bring into a float session as well.
Bring the audio you are ready to learn—whether it be a language, music or other and hook it right into your Float Pod® to experience super learning for yourself.
Whatever audio you and your clients wish to experience, visualize or learn— the unique state offered by flotation and the Mp3 integration that comes standard with the Float Pod work hand in hand to provide it for you on the deepest level possible.
