rest. relax. recover.

at Grand Rapids' one and only
flotation therapy studio

EXPLORE A DIFFERENT state of mind

it turns out that when you float in a warm, Epsom salt solution that is housed in an environment which frees you from almost all of your senses, wonderful things happen. with external stimuli at a minimum, our bodies have a profoundly intense relaxation response. the body is no longer in “fight or flight” mode and switches to “rest and digest”. this natural transition carries a wide array of health benefits. the brain reduces cortisol output (stress hormone) and increases dopamine and serotonin, the “feel good” endorphins. it is essentially a reboot switch for your mind. this warm, salty bath dissolves stress stored in muscles, decompresses joints and elongates the spine, and puts the body in an ultra deep state of rest and relaxation. floating helps with rest and recovery, stress, anxiety, can alleviate chronic pain, and so much more!

The staff (Tyler) was incredible! While waiting, I overheard a conversation between a potential customer and Tyler; he was informative, patient and had an answer to everything.... Phlot values its new and existing customers - will definitely consider going again! The facilities are very clean, the atmosphere is relaxing and the floats are life changing. Will definitely recommend to friends.read more

Every single detail was meticulously thought of for the phloter’s premium experience. I will most certainly be back, and inviting friends and buying gift cards. Thank you, Tyler, for making it such a comfortable experience for my husband and I.read more

Way more than just a float. This is an experience of serenity; in a world that is becoming more distracting by the minute. The attention to detail is staggering. Not a single item... in the building demands your attention; but when it does have your attention it commands it. An excellent example is the shampoo dispenser, which is magnificently solid but blend in unnoticed. The whole building could be described as such. The result is a incredibly unique experience that starts the moment you walk in.read more

Hey everyone, My name is David and I suffer from chronic low back pain. I had a four level fusion on June 11th. I would... say that I was recovering well with mild pain. On July 12th I suffered a trip and fall. The pain since then has been unmanageable at times. Slower progress with significant pain. I am prescribed numerous pain medications that help lessen the pain and make some activities tolerable. On August 1 I overheard my wife talking about going to phlot with one of her friends. I called ahead and much to my surprise they had an opening. Now I’ve been to phlot before so I know the benefits of floating in an isolation chamber. What I did not expect was for that hour I felt no pain. I completely disconnected from myself. Being pain-free for one hour was amazing. Thank you.read more

If you've been considering checking this place out, stop considering and go!! I've been twice now and it's absolutely... amazing! The staff had always been wonderful. Today's float I was more relaxed than my first time and did not want to get out of the tank when the music and light came on. I would have stayed all day if I could 😉 It is such a nice way to break away from the world for a bit. You feel so relaxed and at peace ♡read more

The serenity begins when you walk in the door. We were given a tour before before our first float. The filtration... system keep everything in the tank clean, the rooms are well thought out and everything is provided from shampoo to earplugs. The experience itself is a step away from our busy lives. The water itself feels kind of silky and warm, very pleasant and relaxing. Afterwards a cup of tea before we returned to the hectic world. A day later and I continue to feel very relaxed and zen. I will certain Phlot again soon.read more

This was the best experience to unplug and really get in my head. I am a novice meditator and this was just what I... needed to jump start my daily practice. The facility itself has everything you need for your experience. It’s calm, relaxing, and simplistic. The 60 minutes flew by and I didn’t want to be done. I can see how this can become a weekly/monthly self care option. The staff was friendly and welcoming.read more

Had my first phlot session this morning after receiving it as a Christmas gift from my wife. It was a great experience... and the place is first class in every way. So clean, neat and great decor. I’ve been learning to meditate over the last year and thought this would be a good next step in that journey. I was right! Tyler (owner) is a great host. He makes it easy for first timers like me, explaining the process and what to expect. Benis: I’m feeling great physically from taking weight off my joints for an hour and mentally from the sensory deprivation and forced mindfulness. Highly recommend.read more

Zen thoughts- A healing experience to”phlot” in the salts. Whether relaxing or meditating a calmness resounds.... Controlled breathing enhances the experience as you are floating void of outside influences and stimuli. Mix in some gentle stretching and flexing to get a total experience. As a business owner, educator, & certified massage therapist I would highly recommend this experience on a regular basis. Two days later my chiropractor at Chiropractic Unlimited reported that I was the most relaxed ever and my adjustment was easily done. Yes I took him the Phlot phamplet. One week later I am still enjoying the positive effects of the salt and sustained relaxation!🧜🏾‍♀️ Practical Thoughts- Everything is provided for the experience including hair dryers, lotions, ear plugs, facility shoes, etc. you can leave the phlot chamber door open with room lights on - they are movement sensitive. Additionally, they provide a relaxation room with hot tea. You receive the full hour and the time to change before and after. They book the rooms with 2 hour segments so you are not rushed and they have time to filter water and properly clean for the next client. This was one of the best birthday gift ever from my son Josh Stauffer/Blue Flame Thinking, who also bought me a phlot shirt. Clients can also earn Birthday phlots and phlots for referring a certain number of new clients. The Best part of this review is that the float owner caught me out in the community at Metro Cruise last Saturday night wearing my “phlot” shirt, so he gifted me a phlot. Thank you to a great Phlot staff and experience!read more
