Sukhino Float Center and Salt Cave

Ever wonder HOW a regular floatation practice makes your life better? Sukhino Float Center and Salt Cave explains:

Why is floating just soooooo relaxing? Neurotransmitters and hormones, that's why! ENJOY! (Volume up!)

Thich Nhat Hanh Quote Collective

"Nothingness is really like
the nothingness of space,
which contains the whole Universe.
All the sun and the stars
and the mountains and rivers
and the good men and the bad men
the animals and the insects,
the whole bit: all contained in the void.
So out of this void comes everything
and you are it."

~ Alan Watts

Dr. Joseph Mercola

Devotees claim it can be the answer for everything from hypertension to insomnia. Also, it can be linked to reducing anxiety and pain, relieving addiction, improving sleep and improving symptoms associated with burnout. Is it really true? Here's what the science says.

This one had us laughing, @hillaryschickspicks! It’s true what they say, everyone has their own experience inside the tank. We’re glad it ended up being a positive experience and we look forward to hearing what future floats hold for you!🙌

“8 days of sore muscles and sensory overload. Where to go? GF & CP Cashier Suzanne said let’s “Float.” Sensory Deprivation Tanks OmFloat In Ashburn. Thank goodness the owner explains process of leaving the tank door cracked if needed* for your 90 minutes in 850 pounds of epsom salt water in total darkness in a “coffin.” As an Olympian, he touts improved performance and ethereal sensations. Mind expanding, “altered states” and keen focus is what Deepak Chopra attests. Personally, I thought of every buried alive movie (Kill Bill), thought the Cuban auditory terrorism may be happening, could hear the arthritis in my neck, swayed like a metronome, wondered if Lady Gaga likes her toned down look, kept realizing I NEED GUIDED MEDITATION!! I decided if I cannot quiet my mind, I would just appreciate the jello/cozy blanket-like feeling, the salt on my belly and stretching. And then I relaxed. Tapped into some thoughts that had been suppressed. I never did sleep. Suzanne thinks she did. I hear it’s better the second time since the learning curve is a whole situation. I did sleep well and feel uber alert today.”

- @hillaryschickspicks (from IG)

“What if I’m claustrophobic?” We get this question at least a few times per day here at OmFloat.

While a float tank may seem intimidating initially, surprisingly, there is no feeling of being confined in a tight space because the walls seem to disappear once you’re inside the tank. This is why people compare floating to being in outer space! 👨‍🚀

You can also sit up all the way and stretch out completely, even if you’re 6’3 like Matt, here!

Listen to what he has to say about the size of the tanks in the video. ☝️☝️ Thanks, Matt!🙌

“So, I trained legs and glutes on Friday and was SUPER sore. Then, I tried out the float and my soreness is completely gone today and I had THE BEST sleep. 💤 Floating is now my new favorite way to recover from working out!”
- Susan Kim 🏋🏻‍♀️ (@_susankim on IG)

Our floaters frequently comment how they crave time in the float tank after working out or performing various physical activities.

People use the floating experience to optimize the effects of their training routines, manage fatigue, and speed-up their recovery from sports injuries or muscle soreness after a tough workout or yoga class.

Everyone needs to float – David Head – Medium

“I’ve been meditating for the last 7 years. Normally it’s often hard to reach a deep meditative state. My back and legs cramp up after a while. In the float tank, you’re completely suspended. There’s none of that. If normal meditation is like driving in congested city traffic, float tank meditation is like taking the highway express lane.

I was in the zone within 5 minutes. It felt like being in the womb: a level of comfort, peace, and contentment that I never knew existed. I thought the description of “your body melts away” was hyperbole. No. That’s exactly what happened.

I was in the deepest meditative state of my life: thinking about everything from my family, to my friends, to the nature of life and my role in it, to the impact I plan to make in the world, to why that’s important, to why anything is important.”

- David Head
Co-founder / CEO @ Sixty

Read the article below to learn about how David Head, CEO & Co-Founder of Sixty, utilizes floating to cope with the stresses of being an entrepreneur & running a startup company and why he believes that "Everyone needs to float." 👇👇👇

medium.com Startups are stressful. My team was gearing up for fundraising, and launching the most important product update in our company’s history…

Looking for a highly productive & enlightening way to wrap up the weekend?

Several recent studies done at Texas A&M and the University of Colorado have shown that floating increases production of theta waves, which are accompanied by vivid memories, free association, sudden insights, creative inspiration, feelings of serenity, and oneness with the universe.

Floaters quickly enter the theta state while remaining awake, consciously aware of all of the vivid imagery and creative thoughts that pass through their minds. More importantly, the studies also showed that after getting out of the flotation environment, floaters continue to generate larger amounts of creativity-promoting theta waves for as long as three weeks!

Since the production of Theta waves are strongest during or immediately after a float, we often encourage our floaters to spend some time in our “Quiet Room” (pictured here) after each float to gather their thoughts, jot down some notes, meditate, hang out on the bean bags (like you see @4carla2njoy and her son doing in the pictures), and/or leave an entry in our Guest Book.

Mr. Joe Rogan explains the benefits he achieves by meditating in his float tank:

“The thing about tanks is, you can do all the meditation in tanks, but you have way more disconnection from your body. And I think that’s important. It disconnects your mind and your thoughts and your ideas from your physical frame.

That’s what people are trying to do when they meditate, you’re trying to sit down in a comfortable spot and just concentrate on your thoughts, and you absolutely can achieve these amazing states of mind in that way, but I feel like those states are elevated substantially from the tank. And everyone that I know that disagrees has never done the tank.”

Wise Words of Wisdom from Jacob Yakoubi:

“Every time I go for a Float, I always leave the tank with a Smile. You must be brave to go out and explore the world, but it takes courage when diving into your inner world.

Lesson from last night's session: We all forget, all the time and that's how it's suppost to be. Rediscovering your passion is a matter of remembering that you have your own unique story to share with the world.

Thanks OmFLOAT for another wonderful experience.”

Thank YOU for sharing, Jacob! 🙌🙌🙌

“Last week I tried another new (to me) therapy on my selfcare journey. If you would like to take your workout recovery or your meditation practice to the next level, go for a float. This is the chamber I was in for 90 minutes. You might be thinking it’s too much, but truly it’s the perfect amount of time to meditate and sink into a deep self awareness. @omfloat takes care of you! They think of everything to make your experience the very best. I challenge you to give it a try! Comment with your thoughts below, especially if you’ve already experienced it. 🧘‍♀️”

- @glow_kellyzak (from IG)

It’s part of human nature, we overthink, we over rationalize, we stress about what’s to come to the point where it causes anxiety and fears...we ALL do it. True clarity comes from NOT thinking. It comes from silence, not the overthinking and agonizing over decisions. Find YOUR clarity at OmFLOAT by booking your first 90-minute float session today!😌✌️

The Hype Over Sensory Deprivation Tanks Is Real. Here's Why.

"While many floaters come for the stress relief, a fair number of others come for the athletic-performance benefits the salt soak offers. It’s even become a favorite recovery method for some pro athletes.

“This is one of the best things you can do after a hard workout for sore muscles,” says Charles. [owner of Chill Space NYC]

It was the physical perks that inspired my visit to Chill Space after a Sunday-morning 22-mile run. Sore calves, screaming quads, a tight back—sure, there’s Advil (and alcohol). But an hour soaking in the mother lode of Epsom salt baths? Sign me up."

When we attended the Float Conference last weekend, we had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Justin Feinstein share some incredible research being done by him and his team at the Float Clinic & Research Center (FCRC) at Laureate Institute for Brain Research.

When the Float Clinic & Research Center (FCRC) was built several years ago, it was constructed with the notion that floating could help individuals who suffer from anxiety develop a new relationship with their internal body, one which ultimately would lead to less suffering in everyday life. While Dr. Feinstein and his team still have a ways to go before fully testing this idea, we are pleased to share with you the publication of their 2nd float study, a randomized controlled trial in patients with high levels of anxiety sensitivity.

The full paper can be read here: https://goo.gl/jMRYmE

A quote from Dr. Feinstein regarding the results of their research:

"I have been truly inspired by the results, with patients reporting significant short-term improvement in depression and anxiety after floating. More than simply reducing symptoms of mental illness, the float experience seems to enhance mental wellness, allowing patients the opportunity to experience life in a peaceful and serene state. It should be noted that many of these patients have tried other forms of treatment, including medication and psychotherapy, and unfortunately, none of these other treatments have provided much in terms of relief."

Please help us spread the word about these exciting new findings by sharing this post or tagging a friend who might be interested in the research!
