What an amazing experience! My first time in a float tank. I was given a tour of the facility, and everything explained. I'm not a person who likes to hang out in a bathtub so I was a little skeptical if I would like the hour in the tank. But it flew by. Total darkness and silence, weightlessness... you feel like you're floating in space, no gravity, and you lose the sense of inside/outside your body. It was total peace, relaxation and bliss. I'd just taken a long trip from Europe and was jetlagged, it was the perfect antidote. On a practical level, everything is spotless, light, and Euro-modern, there is great shampoo/conditioner and lotion, space where you can comb/blowdry your hair, a robe to wear in case you need to visit the washroom. Upstairs there's a gorgeous area with skylights where there are interesting books to browse through and tea to drink as you prepare for your return to the real world. I will be giving gift certificates to this place for everyone I know!
