Floating is cumulative ~ Start building pain relief NOW.

A Vacation From Pain:

People in pain, particularly chronic pain, can experience both immediate and long-term relief from floating. For a veteran often dealing with constant chronic pain - both physical and emotional - the effortless floating experience to eliminate gravitational pull and dispersing body weight can be a relief from the signature illnesses of veterans and first responders alike.


Also for an arthritis sufferer, a pregnant woman or anyone else dealing with sore muscles and joints, a float session can be a 60- to 90-minute vacation from pain.  As one veteran said after a float: "I forgot all the @#&* I've been through."  His comment still brings tears.  We are blessed to bring relief.  God Bless our relief.
