Sensory Deprivation


About Floating

Floatation Therapy is a luxurious way to soothe and heal the body from the constant stress of life's daily pressure. You can leave the noise and confusion behind and perhaps, for the first time in your life, experience total relaxation and deep healing in your private, peaceful space. It is truly the ultimate ESCAPE at our brand new float center at New You Oasis in South Bend!


How It Works

Floatation therapy is a unique type of hydrotherapy that simulates zero gravity by dissolving 800 to 1000 pounds of Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate) into approximately 200 hundred gallons of water in a small shallow pool 8-12 inches deep.  Our room is a 6' x 8' luxurious and very spacious room to provide ultimate comfort!  It is equipped with LED underlighting, underwater music, and both water and air temperature controlled.   The room also has a vent in the ceiling that provides fresh air for the folks who might struggle with anxiety or panic attacks plus to assist with breathing if needed.  All amenities needed to float are provided to all our customers so that way we can put your mind to rest and you can solely focus on floating and your relaxation needs! 



The deep mental relaxation initiated by floating allows the brain to produce a greater amount of theta waves, which are accompanied by an increase in mental clarity, creativity, imagery, and memory. In addition, the release of the endorphins induces the feeling of elevated mood states which are effective in helping alleviate anxiety, depression, and negative mental habits.  There are also many other great benefits that come with floating such as improving your sleep, enhancing athletic performance, relieving physical pain, decreasing muscle tension.  And don't forget the benefits of the salt (magnesium sulfate) as well such as sore muscle reduction, skin hydration and potential overall body recovery!
