Being in the float pod gives the mind a chance for complete rest and relaxation. This mental release allows the brain to produce profoundly positive mental effects and release a surge of positive neurochemicals. Studies have shown the use of floatation therapy to be extremely beneficial for mental health.
Stress Reduction – In the floatation environment, without the burdens of the world imposing itself on us, people experience a deep calmness of mind. This break allows for stress management, offers the psychological benefits of a feeling of inner peace, and is a perfect complement to many alternative wellness regimens.
Increased Creativity – Sensory deprivation allows the mind to enter into the theta state, a somewhat dreamlike state that most people only experience when on the brink of sleep or right after waking in the morning. These lower frequency brain waves have been called “the state of inspiration” and there is evidence to support an increase in feelings of creativity and mental focus associated with these types of brain waves.
Improved Sleep – Float pods have seen much success as an aid to those with insomnia or other sleep disorders. Floating can even be used to alleviate feelings of jet-lag or reset sleep schedules for those needing to maintain a healthy level of sleep, which many medications attempt to resolve but often have unwanted and serious side effects.
Increased Reaction Time and Sensory Awareness – The float pod environment has been shown to bolster reaction time and heighten the senses post-float. This can lead to increased sensory awareness for days after floating. Colors may seem brighter, you may experience improved sensation and awakening of the soul.
Euphoria – Floating also offers a natural increase in dopamine, endorphin and natural oxytocin production as well as other neurotransmitters which create feelings of euphoria and promote mood stabilization and mental relaxation. This has both the subjective benefits of a feeling of well-being and the mental benefits of a more balanced brain chemistry.
For anyone with more serious stress induced or related diseases, such as hypertension, ulcers, heart disease, and many others, the float pod offers a mental solution to the physical symptom. By combating the stress which is at the root of these issues, Float Therapy can help to heal the body and the mind. Even more mental issues, such as depression, anxiety, even PTSD, have been shown to be alleviated in the float pod environment due to shifts in brain chemistry.
Float Therapy Spa is the premiere float spa in Orange County. Randy and Maria built Float Therapy Spa from the ground up in 2015. After floating at other facilities, they experienced such profound benefits that they decided to build their own in Huntington Beach where they are life-time residents. They believe in the power of floating and have dedicated their lives to bringing it to as many people as they possibly can. Their mission is to create a better world through Floating. When we improve the quality of our lives, we are better to ourselves and everyone around us.
Floatation therapy offers a safe, natural, and scientifically proven alternative to many medications and other inappropriate treatments which have adverse and potentially dangerous side effects..

In our modern world, it's extremely rare to be free from the continuous bombardment of our lives, whether it be work, family or emotional burdens. As you might imagine, being zero-gravity in a silent and dark float pod gives the body a chance to relax. While the healing benefits of relaxation have long been documented, the intense relaxation of Float Therapy is unique due to the environment that float pods provide. The anti-gravity benefits permit decompression of the spine, elimination of pressure points from the body, increases endorphin and dopamine levels, leaving you feeling blissful for days. The more you float the more benefits you get!
Athletic Performance – Since the effects of gravity are virtually eliminated in the float pod, the body is able to more efficiently distribute it’s natural energy towards healing and maintenance. The body will rest up to 4 times faster after only 60 minutes in the float pod. This means you can train yourself harder and reap the benefits of faster recovery times. Water in the float pod has the added benefit of being saturated with 1,200 lbs of Epsom salts, which have well-established healing effects helping to draw out toxins and lactic acid from intense work outs, speeding up recovery time and allowing athletes and fitness enthusiasts to train harder, improve their athletic ability and reach their health and performance goals with lower risk of injury and fatigue.
Pain Management – Floatation therapy has seen success in easing and even eliminating chronic pains of the shoulder, knee, back and other parts of the body. It has also been shown to lessen the pain and discomfort from such conditions as arthritis and fibromyalgia, which have few natural treatment options.
Improved Blood Circulation – The near-weightless environment of floating in skin-temperature water, infused with 1,200 lbs of Epsom salt eliminates all pressure points of the body and allows for the muscles and joints to completely relax, increasing blood flow and helping to more quickly repair muscle tissue and heal the body. This is especially beneficial for those with injuries or chronic pain.
Increased Healing Potential – The float pod environment has been shown to accelerate the healing of broken bones and sprained joints, sometimes healing twice as fast as without floatation therapy. This leads to a more profound rest, and allows our bodies to recuperate faster and more thoroughly.
Strengthen Immune System – The body has vast amounts of healing energy but it's used up by gravity and the processing of external stimuli. The no-impact blissfully quiet shield of the Float pod from the pollution of life gives your body the chance to experience true rest and recuperation, giving your immune system the opportunity to shift into a higher gear, strengthening your body’s immune response.
