Have you ever considered floating to help improve your sleep?

You may be asking: What is “a float?” 

It’s essentially a one-hour session spent floating in a highly concentrated solution of Epsom salts. There are music, lighting, and lid closure options, but to make it simple, imagine returning to your mother’s womb for an hour: free-floating in a warm, dark, quiet confine, allowing your mind to empty, to drift, and to eventually ponder what life might be like when birthed anew! The float pod creates that type of environment, minus the tight quarters of the womb.

Float pods have many proven benefits, including improved sleep following a session, but floating also supports:
