Welcome to Floating Lotus


From the stillness within, a new sense of Self arises







Be. Weightless.


Floating offers a unique environment which promotes deep and restorative relaxation of body and mind.


Rest is essential to a healthy life quality, without it our movements are incomplete. Floating returns us to that state of restful stillness.


Sensory input is brought back to a minimum and gravity is bypassed with high amounts of epsom salt. This magnesium rich salt has you float effortlessly and is great for the body. 


Enjoy the totality of stillness or choose for the integration of music, light and guided meditations.


We offer 60, 90 and 120 minute floats, of which 90 minutes is our most popular duration. Time perception fades quickly once inside the tank.





Rest, Meditate, Vitalize, Heal


Floating has been around since the early 1950's. Developed by the neuroscientist Dr. J.C. Lilly. The effectiveness of Floating has proven itself and is supported scientifically by various researches

Floating relieves the entire bodily system of the bonds of gravity, restoring health through this incredible tension relief. The skin and muscles enjoy high amounts of magnesium while body and mind are deprived of all external sensory stresses.

    How about the water quality? The water consists of 35% Epsom Salt, which is an environment in which pathogenic organisms like viruses and bacteria cannot survive. Additionally, the filtration system employs UV-light, Hydrogen-Peroxide and a cotton-filter to ensure optimal cleanliness. The entire body of water is filtered 3 times after each float and the water quality is checked regularly. This way we guarantee optimal water quality.
    What if I'm claustrophobic? This has proven to be a wonderful environment for the exploration and transformation of fears such as claustrophobia. You can float with the door open and the music and lights on. Over time you may experiment with closing the lid, until you find yourself floating in stillness with your phobia long gone.
