We get it all the time, "How the hell is floating in water gonna help me?" 

Well, I'm here to tell you, FLOATING CHANGED MY LIFE! First, know it's not just "floating in water."

You're in a super comfortable, temperature controlled environment, floating on an epsom salt solution so dense that you are completely buoyant. (We're talking 1000+lbs of Epsom salt dissolved in only 10 inches of water!) It's as close as you're going to get to zero gravity, unless you're an astronaut.

Hey all!
 

Our grand-reopening of our Roxborough Float Spa, exact date TBD, is just around the corner, and we can't wait for you to see what we've done with the space! We've been getting a ton of inquiries about what changes have been made, so I thought I'd write a little note to update our Float Fam about our new and improved shop.

At Halcyon Floats, our clients are a mixed bag of awesome folks looking to enrich their lives with more healthful habits, often layering practices of mindfulness and fitness, in order to increase happiness and overall wellbeing. The consensus seems to be that floatation therapy is an amazing way to incorporate meditative practice into anyones's fitness routine. That said, I’d like to shine a big old spotlight on how sensory deprivation seems to be an especially wonderful compliment to yoga. By now, some of you “in the know” might be saying,”DUH!” Eve...
