Floating goes mainstream in California

Want to float your way to less stress, anxiety, depression, and pain?

Though it sounds too good to be true, science says it’s possible. Floating decreases anxiety and depression and improves sleep.

Developed in the United States in 1950’s by John Lilly, a University of Pennsylvania neuroscientist, the idea is to provide people with a safe, quiet, contained environment that promotes relaxation via sensory deprivation. Popular in the 90’s this technique consists of meditating in peace, floating in the dark for about 60 minutes in water kept at body temperature. The perfect formula for learning to let go and lose track of time.
