Discover the deepest relaxation available

Floating is about everything that you won’t be doing.

You won’t be fighting gravity. The 1200 pounds of USP, USA-made epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie on your back in stillness. The water is kept at 93.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.

Your ears stay just below the water, and the tanks are insulated against sound. Noise from the outside doesn’t reach you.

After you shut the door to your level of comfort and turn off the light, you float in total darkness. Of course, you have the option to display a blue underwater light, a starry skylight, or no light, to help assist in your float journey. The room has plenty of air circulation bringing fresh air into the room for an extraordinary peaceful, relaxing and safe experience.

During your float the outside world disappears, and amazing things begin to happen.

It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in sensory information, your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.

Your mind becomes free to mull things over without distraction as your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body gets to deeply rest, destress, and heal.

It’s likely to be the most relaxing thing you’ve ever experienced.

Why float?

Health & Wellness

Come float to relieve stress, recover from injuries, eliminate or better manage chronic pain, shift addiction, explore and expand consciousness, or just unplug from your daily grind.

Floating naturally increases your dopamine and endorphin levels, boosting your mood and leaving you with a pleasant afterglow that lasts for days afterwards.

You’ll likely experience the most complete relaxation you’ve ever felt without the need to fight gravity or take in external information.


Everything you experience while floating comes from within yourself. It’s the perfect time to reflect on your life, and reports of creative and personal insights abound. Using a mantra like, “Let go!” while floating assists in increasing mindfulness and shifting tension and constriction to peace and possibilities.

Floatation can also be thought of as training wheels for meditation. After about 30-45 minutes of floating, your mind starts producing theta brainwaves, which are responsible for that ‘between waking & sleeping’ state.

After years of rigorous practice, people can enter theta state through deep meditation. Floating gets you there effortlessly.

Self Improvement

People have cut strokes off their golf game, developed complex scientific theories, and drafted whole portions of books while floating.

With the left hemisphere of your brain turning off, your level of insight, awareness and knowledge absorption becomes accentuated.

The benefits start to compound with a consistent practice

We recommend 3 floats within 30 days to experience the full benefits. Plus, the longer you float, the better the experience as you become accustomed to the environment and release more stress.

“My first float experience was fabulous!! Eva was absolutely the best when it came to getting me comfortable with the process!! The space is clean and we'll kept!! I purchased a 3 pack and can't wait to go back!! I highly recommend!!”

Kristy M.Verified 5-Star Review on Google

“Excellent facility, very calming and the staff is very professional. Conveniently located for the north suburbs. The float tanks themselves are of higher quality than commonly found. I did two floats and can't say enough good about the Chicago Stress Relief Center. Of course anyone who has a good experience becomes a walking advert for the company so I can't stop telling people about it.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How are the tanks kept clean?

The highly sterile salt water is fully filtered three times between each float and is sanitized with UV light.

What if I’m claustrophobic?

People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating. Our float cabins are some of the largest environments to float in. Plus, you’re always in control of your environment, there are lights that you can have on throughout your float session if you prefer.

Can I drown if I fall asleep?

Nope. Some fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yes, just yourself and towels. Robes, earplugs, and everything else you need are provided and if you forget a towel, they are available for rent. Members get a courtesy spa towel. 

Can I bring a friend?

Absolutely. We have two float rooms. You can’t float together in the same tank, but you can book floats simultaneously or float while they are getting a massage.

Is there anything I need to do before I float?

  • Don’t drink caffeine before.
  • Don’t shave or wax the day of your float.
  • Eat a small meal 1 1/2 hours prior.
  • Remove your contacts.
