We offer individuals floats in any of our 4 float tanks. We also have massage and acupuncture which can be combined wonderfully with floating. Given space to think, we can see our dreams more clearly. Given time to rest, we can be propelled by the kind of inspiration the comes from simply being still. Welcome to The Float Shoppe: a place to pause the rushing world and clear your mind as you float weightlessly in restorative saltwater and enjoy the deep rest of true peace and quiet. Start out with a cup of tea comfortable lounge where our friendly and experienced staff will guide you through all you need to know in order to have a wonderful float experience. After being shown to your own private room, it is up to you to develop your time as needed - in play, in reflection, in creation, or in deep rest. Relax into a thousand pounds of detoxifying epsom salts and allow warm water to cradle you for ninety minutes of relief from the outside world. Limiting external sound and light leaves you with the calming sounds of your own breath, your rich heartbeat, and even your eyelashes brushing together.

Enjoyed the Tranquility float tank - it even had the option to turn on little lights on the lid to simulate the stars if I wanted. shower was right in the room with towel and robe and all the little things that make floating more enjoyable - earplugs, neck pillow etc. I'll be back for sure!

This was my first float experience and it was more than I could have expected. My body felt restored to a relaxin in space. I highly recommend the experience! I enjoyed it so much I've already booked my next float. Thank you

I had visited the Float Shoppe earlier in the week to ask all of my questions, which Johnny (at the front desk) patiently and enthusiastically answered, for nearly 30 minutes. One of the owners was around and was offering tea to guests who had just arrived and were removing their shoes to soak their feet in the foot bath before... More

Awesome place to float. Really feels welcoming and accepting for the experience. The 90 minute float sessions are perfect. I did a float into a massage and it's been great, even (over) a week later!

It was enjoyable and relaxing, my only complaint was I got cold an hr into my 90 minute float time. Then I found myself trying to stay warm by moving around not relaxing.

Friendliest staff who explained everything so well. The float was so relaxing and just after my first float, I experienced immediate pain/soreness relief!

I suffer from anxiety and my husband, from RLS and poor cartilage in his knees. We could not wait to reap the benefits of this experience! The tank has a large amount of epsom salt to allow you to float and the magnesium absorbs into your body for mood balance and to rid muscle soreness goodbye. It took us a... More

Such a wonderful first time experience. Emily was so kind and helpful. She did a great job of easing me into the process and gave me many helpful tips for my first float. The facility itself is adorable and welcoming. Very peaceful, relaxing environment. I didn't soak my feet in the tub up front but next time I definitely will.... More

After doing a good amount of research on floating and different places that offer the service, I decided my first time would be at Float Shoppe. Everything from just talking about floating, to my first float, and chatting afterwards was amazing. This place and it's employees are top notch. I have never been so relaxed in my life. I deal...
