A float tank is a small shallow pool filled with water nearly saturated with Epsom salt, so you float completely effortlessly. The tank is kept warm, body temperature, and it's enclosed so it's completely dark and quiet. It's completely relaxing.

We are the largest and oldest float center in Metro Boston, with four tanks. Our mission is to offer float therapy for wellness and stress relief. Let it go.

About Floating

letting go (lack of effort)
Don’t “try” to do anything in the tank, don't push something to happen, don't expect something to happen: it happens on its own. Let it go.


Please watch our orientation video to learn what you'll need to know when you float.

Programs and Events

Project Skullbaby

Through January 2022

We're making a shirt out of one of our favorite pieces of float art, and you can have one! Project Skullbaby is a collaboration between us, artist Sean Shinnock, and Telescreen Printing, benefiting local OCD advocacy nonprofit Hard Quirk.

Community Hours

Monday mornings

We want to do something to help out people in the community who need a float but maybe can't afford our regular prices. We're all in this together. Community Hours are appointments starting before noon on Monday mornings.

For health and wellness professionals


You might get questions from your clients about whether floating makes sense for them. If you've never tried floating, we want to give you the chance for free. We think you'll find it interesting! Offer is open to anyone working in the medical, holistic wellness, or fitness spaces.


Floating is an unusual thing. Lots of people have questions, so please see our FAQ for answers.

Please watch our orientation video to learn what you’ll need to know before floating.
