National Trend of Float Therapy Debuts in Destin

The ultimate in relaxation…that’s one way to describe a new form of water therapy that has made a popular debut here in Destin. The Float Brothers Float Spa is the Emerald Coast’s first and only float therapy spa.

What is float therapy? Imagine yourself being in a space of perfect tranquility, floating like a cork in salt water, where you don’t experience the pull of gravity, sight, sound, or touch.

How does it work? You typically enter a private spa room outfitted with a flotation tank that holds warm water (93.5 degrees) containing pharmaceutical-grade Epsom salts. The water is as dense as the Dead Sea, where you can float on the surface effortlessly without any body manipulation. Clients enter the tank either nude or in a swimsuit, wearing earplugs. You then lie back and float for 60 to 90 minutes. Because the temperature of the water is the same as your skin temperature, within a few minutes you lose the sensation of where the body stops and the water starts.National Trend of Float Therapy Debuts in Destin.

Why should I float? It’s a luxurious way to soothe and heal the body. You experience total relaxation and deep healing. Flotation therapy has been academically studied in the United States and Sweden with published results showing reduction of both pain and stress. The relaxed state can also lower blood pressure, encourage maximum blood flow, enhance athletic performance, and shorten recovery time.

Float Brothers Float Spa opened in January. The “brothers” behind this adventure are Trey and Chris Hearn. Trey is an Air Force Reserve Officer and Dept. of Defense civil servant while Chris is also an Air Force veteran. The brothers are leading the charge for float therapy to be used for our military to help treat post traumatic stress disorder. The float spa has a special program for military/veterans medically diagnosed with PTSD, which gives them the opportunity to float free at certain times in the patriot float room.

This is from a recent review of Float Brothers Float Spa on TripAdvisor: “I went for my first float yesterday and it was such a cool experience! I know I didn’t fall asleep, but I feel like I got so relaxed that I almost went in and out of consciousness…almost a dream-like state. I recently started working out more and have had muscle soreness. After getting out of the float pod, my body felt like jello, which was a very welcome sensation! I highly recommend the Float Brothers! The staff was so nice & informative! Be ready for the ultimate relaxation!”

To experience your own ultimate escape, visit the Float Brothers Float Spa at 4495 Commons Drive, located next to Fresh Market and Home Depot. You can make appointments to float on the Float Brothers website.

Happy Floating!
