About Float Therapy in Utah
Our Sensory Deprivation Suite
A sensory deprivation suite, also known as a floatation pool, is where the benefits and relief of float therapy happens. It is simple.
Our suite is quite vast and you can stand inside comfortably until you are ready to float; our suite contains an 8’ by 9’ pool of sterile water at a comfortable temperature, between 94-96 degrees, saturated with medical-grade Epsom salts. The high concentration of salt ensures that any person can float on the water.
It is referred to as a sensory deprivation pool because is it a quiet suite where light and sound are subdued for total relaxation. You will simply wash off body products and natural oils in the adjacent shower, then enter the pool and gently lie on your back and just relax. You can breathe easily as there is plenty of oxygen, the suite is equipped with an air circulation/ ventilation system. You will experience weightlessness, comfort, and freedom.

The benefits and relief of float therapy improve with each subsequent session. Essentially, the more you float, the better it gets. It took time for stress, pain, and tension to build in your life and it takes time to experience the most relief as well. Thankfully, floating in our float spa is effortless, fun and relaxing.
When a person is in the posture of floating at the right temperature, the natural tendency of the body is to dilate the blood vessels, maximizing the blood flow and reducing blood pressure. Brain activity typically correlated with your muscles is relaxed greatly. While in this state, natural endorphins are released which lessen pain.
