#22 of 38 in Spas in Virginia
The Float Zone is Richmond's premiere floatation destination. Four state of the art float pods are in operation 7 days a week with convenient hours.

Floating has tremendous health benefits, ranging from pain and stress management, to helping with anxiety, sleep disorders, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, recovery from injury, illness or cancer and a myriad of other conditions. Floating opens the doors for incredible creativity, inspiration and recreational relaxation.

Floating can be transformational when used in conjunction with other lifestyle management therapies like chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, physical therapy, behavioral counseling, personal training, medical management of most all health conditions, weight loss, meditation...endless.

In your own private room inside your own float pod, you effortlessly float face up in 10" of skin temperature, ultra-filtered, crystal clear water that is saturated with 1000 pounds of epsom or magnesium salts. With restricted light and sound along with the anti-gravity state of floating, your brain is able to unplug and enter a meditative state. You emerge after an hour, feeling distinctly different in both your mind and your body. An hour of floating is equivalent to four hours of restful sleep.

Come to The Float Zone to relax, to rejuvenate, reduce pain, recover from injury, for heightened inspiration and creativity, or just for fun.

We support you and your healthy lifestyle and we reward those who use our center in conjunction with other healthy lifestyle choices.

Come float with us!

  • What an amazing experience! Cliff was awesome - very professional and helpful! He answered all of my questions when I booked my appointment and then gave me a tour and some quick tips and reminders the day of. The facility is pristine and incredibly peaceful. I meditate but this experience took it to a whole new level. I highly recommend checking it out and they even offer a discounted package... I took full advantage of that! Thanks for your help Cliff!
  • Thank you for such an amazing experience. This was the first time that I have ever experienced floating. I love swimming but I have never been able to relax enough to float. My Float Zone experience was beyond my expectations. I have been suffering from pain do to multiple car accidents, triple hernia surgery and many other pains from past injuries. I immediately felt no pain upon exiting the float zone. That really surprised me. it was as if my whole body had been given some sort of pain relief/numbing agent. Your facilities are amazing as well. From the private room with shower to the extra care you and your staff take to create a calm peaceful experience all the way the process. My experience in the float zone was also amazing. Immediately, I felt myself floating as if I was being cradled in a hammock that was shaped perfectly to my body. I literally didn't want to move from that position. It was so amazing being supported like that. After a few minutes floating I realized that I was not totally relaxed. It was as if for the first time in my life I could totally let go, totally surrender control, and just relax. Once I did I felt a weight lift off of me, as I allowed myself to drift into a place of quiet and serenity. I have never felt so peaceful, and so centered in my life. You were right by the way. After exiting the float zone, taking a shower and getting dressed, sitting in the room with the fire place was better than just leaving and getting in my car. I sat there for 10 minutes listening to the music that was available on the tablet that you provided. I again found myself experience the stillness of peace. Thank you for the experience. It has brought peace and healing to my mind, body and soul. You have found a true loyal customer. I can't wait for my next float zone session. My wife and I will be purchasing more float sessions very soon, for us and other family members. Steven Walker Entercom Media
