Typically a busy, stimulated person (long distance runner) initially I was very skeptical whether I would be able to float in complete silence and darkness for 90 minutes. I LOVED IT! November was my fourth float and I live in Bellingham Washington (meaning I have to travel)… When I visit Portland I now make time to float while I’m there. The elements for aiding recovery (anti-gravity, gigantic, supersaturated epsom salt bath, quiet time) found at the Float Shoppe are unique and hugely helpful for recovering after long physical efforts. I’ve also found that amidst the stresses of everyday life giving myself 90 minutes away from any demands on my mind or body helps ground me and make me more effective.
I was hugely skeptical, but now I wish I could float weekly!
