Floating Basics


Floating is an amazing experience that allows you to destress and recharge. To float, you simply enter the specialized chamber and lie down in the water. The water in each of Float Valley’s 6 float tanks contains 800 pounds of magnesium-rich Epsom salts. This dense solution allows you to float effortlessly to the top.

Our float tanks are completely light-proof, sound-proof, and odorless. You can’t feel the water because it is heated to the exact temperature of your skin. This environment puts your body into a state of profound relaxation.

Freed from the constant stress of gravity and external stimulation, the float tank allows you to completely relax your body and mind. This reduced sensory environment has been researched by neuroscientists for its overwhelmingly positive effects on stress, anxiety, and pain. There is nothing like the complete stillness of floating!

The Room

Clean

The water in the tank is fully filtered 3 times between each float using a 10 micron filter and UV filter. Also, Epsom salt is a powerful natural disinfectant.

Private

You get your own room with a shower and change area. The door to the room is lockable from the inside and you can get in and out of the float tank and the float room as you please.

Testimonial


  • I reached a place of bliss in my floating session and my body went into a self diagnostics mode, after it attempted to reboot multiple times, my body and mind went into a safe mode where I was not conscious, but I was not asleep, similar to a runners high.

    Kimani Lewis - Toronto
  • When I first got into the tank, my mind was racing. I felt like I was thinking about a million things at once, so I decided to focus on my breathing. After what felt like 5 mins, my mind started to clear and I thought I fell asleep, however I think I fell into a state of deep meditation because I then realized my eyes were still open! While in the tank you feel like you're flying in space. Your body is weightless! The hour seemed to fly by and before I knew it, my session was over. I must have fell into that deep state at least 4 times throughout my session. It really helped to disconnect from my stresses and put a lot of things into perspective.

    Jon Celis - Toronto
  • It felt like I had slept for 18 hours. I was very relaxed and happy with myself as a whole. Nadeem & Alex treated me with some amazing tea while I relaxed in the Earth Room, followed by some stretching in the yoga room. When I went to bed that night, I had one of the deepest sleeps I can remember. My dream was so vivid and I woke up feeling 100%.

    James Hemingway - Toronto
  • Visiting Float Valley was a unique and totally enjoyable experience. The closest thing I have experienced previously is scuba diving. If I were floating in space, I think the vastness would be disturbing. Floating in one of your chambers is a totally comforting experience. To say it is relaxing is an understatement. It is difficult to describe the incredible feeling. Although this was my first time "floating", I am hooked. Thank you for introducing me to this wholly beautiful experience.

    Fred Roberts - Los Angeles
  • Thank you for providing a place to find some peace and quiet in a busy life. What a clean spacious, and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy floatation therapy in!

    Anand - Toronto
  • Thank you for letting me experience the float for the very first time. It allowed me to zone out and leave everything behind. It allowed me to relax completely. My skin felt amazing and brand new. I am looking forward to becoming a member at Float Valley.

Our Story


What is Float Valley?

At Float Valley, we offer customized floatation therapy to help you improve your health and reach new levels of self-development. Our unique floating experience not only helps facilitate creativity, but is also therapeutic, extremely relaxing, and all natural. From the beginning, Float Valley was created with three principles in mind: Health, Clarity, and Peace.

About the Owner

Nadeem

Before founding Float Valley, Nadeem Majored in Economics at Waterloo with Minors in Psychology and Business. When he discovered floating and its effect on the mind and body, he was hooked. Originally using it as a way to relax and heal after workouts, he loved it so much that he became the first hire at Waterloo's float center, Flowt K-W. To Nadeem, there was nothing as inspiring as seeing the post-float glow of smiling customers every day. One day while in the float tank, he came to the realization that he wanted to open his own float center and facilitate this same experience for others.

Float Valley is a place to care for both your physical and mental health. The hyperbuoyancy of a float tank releases your body from a lifetime of gravity-related stress.

FAQ


The water is fully filtered 3 times between each float, passing through a hot tub caliber filter (10 micron) and a UV filter. The Epsom salts are a natural disinfectant and there is an extremely high concentration in the water. We also put a small amount of a disinfectant (hydrogen peroxide) which also keeps the tank extremely clean and safe.

For those that are very claustrophobic we suggest you use our Ocean Float Cabins which have very high ceilings and don’t give you the feeling of being enclosed in a small space. For those that are not as bothered we urge you to try the Oasis tanks as they are also very large and roomy. Your environment is in your control throughout your session so if you feel like leaving the tank door open until you are comfortable that is also acceptable. Many people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems at all during their session and some even find that floating helps ease their symptoms.

After every use, an array of filters and cleaning agents are applied to the water. Every week we perform an extensive, in-depth maintenance of the facility and our tanks. We add fresh Epsom salt and water, with the entire volume being replaced over a period of 10 weeks. Between the super-concentrated salt solution, an approved disinfectant agent (hydrogen peroxide), a UV light disinfectant filter, and 10-micron cartridge filter, these are probably the cleanest recreational water sources you’ll encounter!

The best way to tell is to check if the water running through your hair in the shower at home is fully clear. We recommend a few days for blonde hair dye and a week for darker colors. Those with more vibrant colors like red and blue may have to wait up till a month or more before floating.

Don’t drink coffee for several hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don’t shave or wax since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from grumbling and feeling hungry. Other than that, there’s no specific preparation needed.

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank. Other than that, we provide everything you need (towels, robes, earplugs, body wash/shampoo, blow dryer, etc.).

We have 4 Oasis float tanks and 2 Ocean float cabins with plans to add 2 more cabins.

Our facilities are fully accessible for special need customers in a wheel chair. This includes our float cabins, entry doors, and washrooms. However, the float tanks are not accessible if you use a wheelchair. As for other conditions, please contact us if you are unsure if you can float. We have dealt with many different ailments and situations and want to make sure everyone is floating safely and comfortably. Floating can be good for many different conditions but for some like low blood pressure and epilepsy it should be avoided.

Only one person per tank. Fortunately, we do have 6 float rooms so bring your friends, family and loved ones to float too!

You can get out at any time. For the duration of your session your entire room and experience are in your control. Having said that the 60 mins goes by very quickly once you are relaxed in the water.

No. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat. The worst that can happen is getting woken up by a bit of salt water in your eyes.

Floating has been around for over 40 years and has hundreds of published research to back up its benefits. See our More About Floating page for more information.

Your float room will have an area for you to hang your jacket and keep your clothes during your session. The room has two locks to protect your privacy and your belongings.

Yes. We have the option of booking back to back floats which give you 2.5 hours of floating time (since no change over is needed). Also, if no one is scheduled to float after you, we'll always offer to extend your float.

We will give you ear plugs prior to your float. But if you don't want to use them, or if salt water accidentally gets in your ears, we have the solution for you. In every room we provide a solution of half white vinegar and half water. Just rinse out your ears with fresh water first, then squirt this solution in each ear one or two times. That should do it.

Nope - your skin doesn’t even prune up at all! The magnesium sulfate actually makes your skin very silky and soft. You will absorb some of the Epsom salt, so it’s advised that you drink plenty of water or tea after your float.

When your session is complete you will hear some calm music fade in. This is your signal to leave the tank and begin showering.
