On Sunday my parents, sister, and nephew came up which allowed Matt and I to indulge in a couple's float. Say what?! What is THAT?! Let me indulge you....
For Christmas we were gifted a gift certificate for a couple's float at Rochester's Bodymind Float Center. Neither of us had heard about this and we were very intrigued. After looking at the website we were skeptical - a little nervous - but definitely excited to try something new together. When we got there we were shown to our tank room. Before you get into the tank you have to shower and then you get into the tank and float. Yes, you will automatically float. The water is like the Dead Sea - high density thanks to lots and lots and lots of salt. So basically anyone of any size will float. Once you get into the tank the lights turn off and it's pitch black. There is no background noise. There is nothing. You're just there - floating in total darkness and total silence. And let me tell ya - it was freeing. The float was an hour and a half - and neither of us thought we could do it for that long. But we did. In fact, I fell asleep briefly and Matt almost did. And I gotta say - it WAS relaxing - so relaxing. I would have preferred the water to be warmer than it was and I would have liked some soothing music (though I totally get why they don't. There is something about complete and utter silence that is just so relaxing and calming.) But it was definitely interesting and a cool experience. I'd totally do again! So if you are in the Rochester area check them out! Don't we all need a little relaxation in our lives?!?!
