Float Therapy

St. Pete's first Float Tank

Enjoy the most soothing and restful experience you’ll ever have.

Imagine floating on your back, in complete weightlessness. With each deep breath, the tension leaves your body and escapes into the surrounding water. There’s no stress nor distractions, just a warm blanket of peace and quiet. Time seems to stand still as every single worry you have evaporates into the dark air. It’s just you, your body, and your mind floating in what feels like the air. It’s like a refreshing nap but better because you’re awake the entire time – daydreaming without a care in the world.


How good would that feel?


That’s what we call float therapy. It’s possibly the last quiet sanctuary of peace and calm in this chaotic world.


At Best Day Fitness, our professional and knowledgeable team has helped many of our clients experience the weightlessness and relaxation of floating in our “Dream Pod” that’s filled with over 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, which allows you to float effortlessly.

Mental Clarity

We all have 1,000 things pulling our attention on a daily basis. Let go for 60 minutes, and you’ll be shocked with how sharp your mind will be.

Physical Recovery

One hour of floating is equivalent to a 4 hour nap. Help your body recover from an intense workout, daily fatigue, or persistent jetlag.

Deepen Your Spirit

Total sensory deprivation allows you to find presence in the moment, and deepen your connection to the spiritual.

What is floating all about?

Floating, or float therapy, is the act of floating in salt water for physical, emotional, and mental benefits. you step into a private spa “tub” of warm water to float and relax. This “tub”, or pod as we call it, is filled with 1000+ pounds of Epsom salt. The buoyancy is higher than the Dead Sea, so you’re fully supported and float effortlessly. This effect is similar to the anti-gravity effect astronauts experience in space. Feel free to twist, bend, stretch, or stay still and release tension in areas that are normally compressed. The water is heated to skin temperature and feels warm at first, but eventually feels as if there is no separation between body and water.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

What a fantastic experience I had doing a float this past Friday! The tank and the room the tank was in were immaculately clean. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful and informative. What a great way to unplug and get a complete “reset” in the middle of a hectic day! I highly recommend anyone who has ever considered trying an isolation tank to come here. First class operation!

Highly recommend!!! What a great experience. My husband purchased a float session package for me for my birthday. I was able to finally use it today and I am speechless. I had an incredible experience!!! It feels like the water is hugging you. It also felt like I hit a reset button from the stress and anxiety that I have been feeling due to the current pandemic. The facility was so clean and the service was excellent.

What an amazing experience! I had never heard of this until now and thought I’d see what it was all about. The staff was very welcoming. the facility was very clean and the atmosphere was very relaxing. I opted for no music and switched between lights on and lights off. I was very relaxed and may have fallen asleep for a bit of it. I did have to go back to work after and was worried I’d be tired but I’m feeling really good, actually energized. My skin feels great! I will definitely do this again and recommend it for anyone looking to relax, heal, rejuvenate or recover from pushing yourself so hard.

The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The float area is super clean and private. This was my first experience in the float tank and I can’t wait to go back. If you have been contemplating trying it out, I highly recommend you do. It is amazing! I look forward to my next session!

Ricky R. via Google

If you haven’t tried a Float do it now! The staff in there are super friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful. Pick something you want to listen to and go spend an hour floating and letting your muscles completely relax and reset. I loved it the first time I went but they have done a great job of reworking their space and making the float experience even easier to use and that has made the experience even better than the first time. Thank you Best day fitness for this experience as you have a customer for life!

I am a physician and was invited to try out this thing called floating. Long story short we absolutely loved the experience and I will recommend it to all my patients. As a doctor at LevMed Health I try to preach the importance of meditation and creating a buffer between us and life stressors, however personally this is difficult for me to achieve with all the distraction that my mind gets caught up in. I would describe floating as a cheat code to meditation where the lack of data your brain brings in, in this setting, creates an optimal state to truly relax your mind and your body. Leaving the floating tank we were pleasantly overwhelmed by a feeling of relaxation where life stressors were put in perspective. People pay hundreds at a spa to feel the way we felt leaving the floating tank.

Control your float experience

People float for many different reasons, and that means there isn’t a one size fits all experience. Music and lights(both inside and outside the pod) are optional.

  • Those who have difficulty with sensory processing find deep meditation works best with no lights or music, allowing them to be totally in the moment.


  • Those looking for inspiration opt to listen to binaural beats to improve concentration, alertness, problem solving and memory


  • Those looking to recharge their physical body may just want to enjoy colorful lights and pleasant soundscapes while they float effortlessly in the healing effects of the Epsom salts.

Mental and physical benefits can be felt hours, days, and weeks after a single float. If you choose to float regularly (about 1x-2x a month or more), you may see major improvements in your mental, physical, and emotional health long term.

FAQ's

Q: It's my first time, what should I bring?

You don’t need to bring anything, except a gift card if you have one! We provide everything: towels, ear plugs, a blow dryer, make-up remover wipes, Q-tips, contact holders, and combs. However, we do ask that all first-time floaters fill out an intake form before coming to the studio.

Q: What should I wear?

Because any sensory input can take away from the experience, we recommend you float in the nude. You’re in a completely private room, so there’s no fear of running into anyone else.

Q: Who's allowed to float?

Everyone! Even those under 18 are allowed to float, because the experience benefits everyone.


Pregnant women are encouraged to float (with doctor’s approval) because of the shown benefits of floating during pregnancy, such as: Mother/child bonding; release of stress on the joints and muscles of the body; decreased stress and pain. Some mommas have even reported being able to hear their baby’s heartbeat while floating!


For more information, check out our intake form

Q: Is it sanitary?

More than just sanitary. The water contains 1000 lbs of epsom salts which hinders the ability of any germ to survive, plus, the DreamPod has a filtration system similar to that of a small pool or a hot tub. It filters itself up to 7 times between each float. We add natural chemicals (such as Vitamin C) and bromine (a very gentle chlorine type of disenfectant) to maintain the cleanliness of the pod.

Q: Can I drown or sink? If I fall asleep, will I roll onto my face?

Due to the high salt content in the water you literally float on the water, much like a buoy in the ocean. You will not drown! Rolling over takes a great amount of exertion, so you can float without worry. Its only 12 inches deep also.

Q: What does it look like? I’m claustrophobic, does the lid have to be closed?

Nope, you can leave it wide open if you choose. Our pod looks like a giant egg, or a spaceship pod. The lid closes and opens easily without much effort. We recommend trying it with the lid closed first, because the pod is surprisingly spacious once you’re in there. You have the choice between closing the lid completely, cracking it open, or having it open all the way.

Q: How long is a float session?

We have two standard options: a 1 hour float (1 ½ hours total to include time for preparation and showering) and a 30 minute float (1 hour total).


If you’re interested in longer floats, (for deep meditation and astral projection, for example), contact us directly so we can discuss pricing and scheduling options.
