There’s a Subscription for That: Floatation Therapy

THERE’S A SUBSCRIPTION FOR THAT is a series spotlighting subscriptions the team at My Subscription Addiction finds interesting and is excited to share with readers. 

In the last two years, I have made an effort to actively reduce my stress levels. Mainly because I noticed my stress had begun to affect my everyday life: I'd wake up dreading the day, I would barely leave my apartment, every task seemed daunting, and I was moodier than usual. And let's not even start with the pain I constantly felt all over my body. My stress had started to manifest itself physically and I needed to put a stop to it as soon as possible.

Doing my research, I discovered a thing called floatation therapy and floatation tanks. Basically, floatation therapy is a type of sensory deprivation therapy where you just float inside an Epsom salt-heavy tank. It provides the perfect combination of relaxation and recovery that will leave you feeling better than when you came in. And no, I'm not talking about a massive and deep pool. It's literally a tank or a pod filled with saltwater. This will help you stay buoyant as you just let yourself relax. You'll be weightless to the point where you will question if you're asleep. Additionally, the pods or tanks are sound-proof and some even have the ability to play calming music or a guided meditation.

The first time I tried it out, I'll admit that I was nervous. I hate putting myself in situations where I'm not in control of my body and that's exactly what this was. But the benefits convinced me and I tried it. It took me a while to get used to being sensory deprived but when I did, oh boy. It was the most relaxed I had felt in my life. I almost didn't want it to end. That's why when I heard about Lift Next Level Floats, I knew I had to share the news.

Lift Floats believes that having somewhere to relax — a refuge to escape from it all — is key to staying grounded. Their floats will allow you to experience true inner stillness, bursts of insight, and relief from any pain or inflammation in your body. It's the perfect place to go when you've had a hectic week or when you want to take some time to find yourself again. And yes, you can actually buy a package which you can use for a certain amount of visits – and it's definitely cheaper than paying for one-time visits all the time.
Lift Floats currently only has two locations: one in Brooklyn, New York, and a second in Huntington, New York. And they both have different packages.
  • New customers get a one-hour float for $59
  • Returning customers pay $85 for one-hour floats
  • New customers can purchase a package of 3-floats for $158
  • New customers get a one-hour float for $89
  • New customers can purchase a package of 3-floats for $199
  • Returning customers can purchase a package of 3-floats for $249
  • But they also offer memberships of one float a month for $89 with additional floats going for $79
  • Two floats a month for $138 with additional floats going for $69
  • Four floats a month for $260 with additional floats going for $65

THE DETAILS:
  • Both Huntington and Brooklyn locations offer various package options, but only Brooklyn offers monthly memberships.
  • You can pick a membership depending on how many times a month you want to go.
  • They offer earplugs so water doesn't get in your ears, plus relaxing music and meditations in each room.
  • You can choose to float in a pod or in a tank room.
  • They have showers for you to rinse off after your floatation.
  • Expect to feel extra relaxed at the end of your visit.

I don’t know about this company in particular, but went to a float spa several times in my old city pre-pandemic and really enjoyed it. I do have a couple suggestions if I may: try to go when you have not had any caffeine at all (so mornings if possible) or at least not in the past several hours. Even if you’re one of those people who doesn’t seem to be affected by caffeine, for some reason, it’s often just enough to keep you from relaxing, which negates the point! Ideally, you need to drift off to sleep to some degree (dozing) because otherwise, after several minutes, you’re gonna get bored/restless and wonder how much time you have left in there! Also, you don’t need to know how to swim: the salt is enough to hold you up. That said, if you’ve JUST shaved your legs, know it might be a bit unpleasant due to microscopic nicks from the razor…and if you have any actual cuts, you’ll maybe want to skip until you’re a little healed. Although, a good float spa will provide petroleum jelly to put on. Lastly, wear earplugs! Most spas will provide some, but you want to be able to relax and float around and not have to worry about getting water in your ears 🙂
