What if you could charge your mind and body like you charge your cell phone battery? Flotation therapy (also known as Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy or Sensory Deprivation Therapy) is quickly gaining popularity around the world as a means of deep relaxation and recovery. The practice of flotation is an exciting solution to help us deal with our stressful lifestyles. It is a wonderful complement to current wellness activities. We provide northeast Florida with an authentic, state of the art float facility where members will develop their floating practice. We are NOT a spa. A spa is for special occasions, a luxury. We are a place where one can develop their practice of floating, like a yoga studio or the gym. Be Still Float Studio is one more tool in your toolkit for self-care.
First Time Guests
We welcome first-time guests to discover the restorative benefits of floating in our safe and calming studio.
When you arrive, a professional attendant will personally show you the flotation tank and provide an overview of what to expect during your visit. A member of our team will be available to answer any questions you may have before, during and after your floating session.
Our float tanks are filled with a shallow solution made with purified water and pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt. The salinity allows the body to float naturally and without any effort. The solution is heated to the same temperature as your skin. As you settle into the tank, your ability to distinguish between your body and the solution will dissolve – leaving you with a freeing absence of pressure, stimuli and physical distraction.
Many first-time guests report a renewed sense of calm and well-being upon the conclusion of their visit. We encourage guests to return for a second session; knowing what to expect can contribute to faster, deeper relaxation.
Guests who have floated in the past
You already know the calming and restorative benefits of floating. We welcome you to further advance your floating practice at Be Still Float Studio.
Our studio features a welcoming lobby, soothing and minimally appointed relaxation lounge and private float rooms with top-of-the-line tanks. We use pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt for our solution to ensure the highest quality solution for each guest. Our spacious tanks effectively reduce light, sound and external stimuli to allow for deep meditation. Additionally, our state-of-the-art studio offers enhancement experiences such as our oxygen bar, sound therapy chair, massage chairs and Muse meditation sessions.
We look forward to helping you reclaim your sense of calm and well-being through the practice of floating.
Members of the health and wellness community
Floating is a practice that complements a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Be Still Float Studio offers float sessions and other relaxation services that encourage guests to relax deeply and live fully.
Our float tanks are filled with a shallow solution made with purified water and pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salt. The high salinity allows the body to float naturally and without any effort. As guests settle into the tank, they experience an absence of pressure, stimuli, and physical distraction as the central nervous system releases is relieved of its need to process gravity, light, sound and touch. As a result of this reduction in nervous system activity, the body’s production of harmful hormones decreases while beneficial hormone production increases.
The physical benefits of floating have been reported in clinical trials and research studies. Floating can recalibrate Circadian rhythms and cortisol levels, provide a sense of weightlessness that reduces gravitational stress and pressure, reduce blood pressure and heart rate, and increase the production of endorphins.
The mental benefits of floating are equally compelling and include shifts in brain wave frequency, deep meditation, improvement of mental clarity and heightened senses immediately after a floating session.
A recent study by the Laureate Institute for Brain Research in Tulsa, OK showed that floating can be impactful for individuals with anxiety or stress-related disorders, with most participants reporting a significant reduction in stress, muscle tension, pain, depression and negative affect immediately after a float session. Participants also experienced sensations of serenity, relaxation and happiness.
Here at Be Still Float Studio, our mission is to create a ripple effect of wellness; we believe that the benefits of individual float sessions will naturally extend throughout families, social groups and entire communities. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with health and wellness professionals to encourage floating as part of a balanced lifestyle.
