Float Decatur

If you’ve never heard of flotation therapy before, it's a stress-relieving experience involving 1600 pounds of Epsom salt in a tank of skin temperature water. Your ears stay just below the water level, and you float in total darkness.  

Float therapy is often called sensory deprivation, as all external stimuli are cut off for a while. Studies suggest floating may help with muscle relaxation, better sleep, decreased pain, and reduced stress and anxiety.

Local reviewers say, “Floating is something you cannot describe....it is an experience....I would highly recommend” and “90 min of pure relaxation. I feel such a calmness that is hard to explain.”

Float Decatur is offering three specials for Mother’s Day:

  • 45-minute float + 15-minute sauna session for $71
  • 60-minute float + 30-minute sauna session for $98
