A conversation about the relaxing and restorative properties of floating: Inside the float tank, eight hundred pounds of pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt is dissolved in ten inches of water warmed to skin temperature. This extremely dense solution, like the Dead Sea, enables people of all body types to float effortlessly and, to a large extent, escape the pull of gravity. The float tank is light-proof and sound-proof, greatly reducing sensory stimulation. Floating offers relief for back and neck aches, fibromyalgia symptoms, migraines, and muscle and joint soreness. This is the first and only floatation therapy center in Rochester.
