I LOVED IT! I enjoyed my first float yesterday – It was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had to date. My daughter gave me the gift certificate for Christmas and joked that she was sending me to a watery grave. I know that she was just scared and wanted mom to go first. I was happy to report that it was not like a watery grave, it was kinda like an ethereal cave. I LOVED it!!!
What an amazing experience! I wasn’t sure what to expect during my first float. I had heard stories, seen movies, etc and tried not to have too many pre-concieved expectations. I can say it was VERY relaxing and when the music came on to let me know it was time to end, I was so relaxed I didn’t think I could stand up and get out of the tank! There was a definite ‘glow’ afterwards that lasted a long time. Can’t wait to go back for a second float!
The most relaxing experience! I floated for the first time and it was a great experience. Any hesitation I had about floating was completely erased as soon as I was greeted at the door by the staff member. It took me about 15 minutes to relax after I entered the tank, but after that it was the most relaxing experience. It was more than I could have imagined. I continued in a calm state for an additional two days. Thanks for the experience. I will return and bring others to try this experience.
I was just introduced to floating about a month ago. Was a unsure if it was for me. I bought a Groupon and booked my first float. I was surprised at how big the tank is. I guess I had an image of something similar to a tanning bed. Could be more further from the truth. The float tank was spacious so I never felt closed in. Looking forward to my next visit.
Worth the two hour drive! I have wanted to try this for years but could never find a place that offered the service. This spa is a two hour drive for me but worth every minute…………it could not have come at a better time in my life. I float, open my mind, relax my body and am able to put things in perspective and let go of things …………….. it is a terrific value.
Saturday’s Float (2nd Timer)… While I enjoyed my first float in July, the new ownership made my second float more amazing. The additional salt in the tank made a big difference in the neck support achieved, the infused waters were a tasty addition, the atmosphere (while a work in progress) shows wonderful improvements, and the new owners are very personable and enthusiastic about the business. Purchased a “package” and can’t wait for my next floats!
Great experience! I was so excited to be one of the first in charleston to experience this. I was skeptical, and it was interesting at first, but after my body got used to total relaxation, it was AMAZING! I did an hour, but I def recommend 2 hours. I’m going to next time. I fell almost into a trance and time flies by. I got up super relaxed.
Benefits for chronic pain…. As a Registered Nurse and Student Nurse Anesthetist at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, I have had many years of study and experience with pain and disease. As a health care professional, I see many benefits to the healing properties of floating, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Through my professional knowledge and personal experience of floating, I see enormous healing benefits for people with chronic pain issues.
First time, though I had read a good bit about float tanks. It was great. A nice large tank, not confining at all. The staff were very kind and not intrusive. They have the process down nicely. I tried the neck pillow at first, but preferred without. I hope to do this regularly in the future! Though I live in Wisconsin!
WOW… Happy Birthday! A surprise birthday gift from my husband, I was not exactly prepared for my first float, so I really didn”t have any per-conceived notions or fears going in….WOW! what an enlightening experience!!! Made peace with my heartbeat and friends with my breath in the most relaxing state of being. Can’t wait to get a package deal and gift an hour’s float to my husband…who really needs it! And, I can think of a few others….
One of the better ones… I’ve floated at numerous places in the past few years, and glowspa is one of the better ones, and one of the least expensive. I’ve found that besides the obvious physical benefits of isolation tanks, it’s also one of the greatest tools humans have to explore your own consciousness, and to untether your mind from your body in order to release it’s true potential. The most beneficial aspect of sensory deprivation tanks is the transcendence and personal evolution that takes place inside. Everyone should do it, and do it often.
TRY IT!!! I tried this for the first time yesterday. This was my first spa experience, and it was fantastic. It is one of the most relaxing things I’ve ever done. The time passes really quickly once you get used to the feeling and relax. TRY IT!!!
Weightless and Wonderful. I deal with a lot of neck and back pain, so for me this weightless experience was top notch and just what I needed!! It’s probably different for everyone but the same rule of letting yourself go needs to be applied to really experience the benefits of Floating. I look forward to doing it again!
I highly recommend this place The owner was wonderful! She did a really great job explaining the process and giving me a tour of the facility, which was very clean. The atmosphere is very relaxing, and they have done everything I could ever think of to make you feel comfortable before, during, and after your floating experience. My first float was amazing. It took a few moments to clam my mind and find a comfortable position in the super buoyant water, but once I did it felt great. I had the feeling toward the end that I had been in there well over an hour, but it was a trick of the mind. Overall I had a great experience and will definitely do this again and possibly make it a weekly ritual. I highly recommend this place
Very hospitable, made me feel welcome and right at home, in a “safe” place where I could relax and let go as I floated my tensions away. I did 120 minutes, and it went quickly as I reviewed different areas of my life, made some plans for improvements, and focused on just being there in a positive state. Funny but I got out and did a few minutes of a standing meditation when I heard the water start to circulate back in the tank as a signal time was up. We certainly can have an uncanny ability to listen to the internal clock. Although it’s a bit of a drive for me I can’t wait to schedule my next float. Tanks for the memories!
Awesome for recovery… I am a runner, avid exerciser and because of my intense training, I often have little (and big) aches and pains in my joint and muscles. After my floatation experiences I find that my pains are gone and I feel refreshed and invigorated. Floating really helps in my recovery process and leaves me fresh and ready for the next physical challenge.
Totally worth the money! I went for my first float yesterday and it was so relaxing. They have thought of everything from showers, shampoo, conditioner, soap, towels, robes, flip flops, ear plugs, hair dryer you name it they have it. It was amazing like being in a totally dark cave. I am claustrophobic and it didn’t bother me at all. Another super little thing is they give you a spray bottle of water just in case you accidently get the salt water in your eyes. Like I said they thought of everything. I loved the staff and the spa so much I am going back for 3 more luxury treatments tomorrow. Totally worth the money. We all need some time to just tune out the world and relax in a perfectly calm environment.
I slept great after… Floating was the most ethereal experience I’ve ever had. I can’t wait to experience that state of consciousness again. I’m still feeling a deep sense of peace and well-being over 24 hours out. Slept like a baby last night too. I can’t say enough good about this. I’m telling everyone to try it.
I had my first float last night–what an awesome experience!! Everyone should try it at least once. I honestly don’t think I have ever slept as well as I did after the float. Caroline and Jeremy were incredibly friendly and helpful, and the spa itself is immaculate and full of warmth. I will definitely be back!
AMAZING!!!! In a word – AMAZING!!! I had done a little research in preparation for my float, and honestly, you get all kinds of “experiences”, etc. when researching or watching YouTube vids about people’s floating experiences. With that, I had some apprehension, but still “had my mind right” for my first float. I’ve never had so much fun floating in the dark. OK, I’ve never floated in the dark before, but still… Sooooo relaxing and totally enjoyable. When the soft chanting/music crept into the tank signifying that my time was up, I got a HUGE smile on my face, but didn’t want to get out. Now I know what bears feel like when coming out of hibernation! Can’t wait for my next one – gonna go 120 mins. for sure! Thanks!
Peaceful and healing! Floating was a surprisingly profound experience. During my session I found myself fully and completely supported on all levels. I felt so safe that I lost track of time. I didn’t sleep and yet I didn’t know if I had been in the float room for 15 minutes or five hours. The muscle tensions melted away – my mind fully relaxed and by the end of the hour I felt renewed, energized and in deep peace. It was as if I had … found the peace and internal sense of spaciousness that usually only comes for me after some form of yoga or meditation retreat. The effects were noticeable for at least a week. I strongly recommend floating as a healing and rejuvenating treatment.
Best relaxation you’ll ever get … Glow Spa has the best tanks and facilities I\’ve ever seen. Prices are very reasonable. You\’d pay twice as much for a float like this in NYC, SD or LA.
