What is Floating?

You want to experience relaxation, but can't turn off the environment around you? Then a wellness day at Surrender to the Float would be just right. Experience the deepest level of peace you have ever felt. 1 hour in a float room is like 4 hours of sleep.

The water itself is kept at the average skin temperature (93.5° F), which allows you to lose track of your body. The float room is sound proof and, when you turn off the light, completely dark.

No gravity, no touch, no sound, and no sight.


People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating. With nothing to distract you, your level of concentration and knowledge absorption is astonishing.


People float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more. Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards. Without the need to fight gravity or take-in external information, you'll likely experience the most complete relaxation you've ever felt.


Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It's the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound. Float tanks can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that 'between waking & sleeping' state. After years of practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Float tanks get you there effortlessly.

  • Can I float if I’m pregnant?

    Like a pickle covered in maple syrup, pregnant women love floating!  There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of the baby off of the mother's body.  If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.

  • Is there anything I should do to prepare?

    Don't drink coffee for several hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don't shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from sounding like an angry monster while you float. Other than that, there's no specific preparation needed.

  • Can I drown if I fall asleep in there?

    Nope.  Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat.  The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

Float Experiences

2nd float was analogous to dreaming while I was awake. I ventured into memories and thoughts that were clear and vivid. By a 3rd of the way through I snapped out of it, then restless. Until next time. James, 2-25-14
Wow. Beautiful experience. Body says "AHHH". Mind doesn't say much. Would love the mind to say less next time! M.N, 2-25-14
We are all waves in the ocean. Thanks for a great experience. John, 2-23-14
