Natural Awakenings Richmond

Meditation is Better While Floating

Richmond’s largest float center, The Float Zone, has collaborated with The Innerwork Center to offer a floating guided meditation experience. This body scan is the first in a series of underwater meditations that The Float Zone will offer and is presently a staple component of The Innerwork Center’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) eight-week course. All body scan participants will receive $10 off an annual membership at The Innerwork Center.

While floating inside a large, oval, fiberglass pod in 10 inches of warm water saturated with 1,000 pounds of Epsom Salt, the brain shifts to a deeply relaxed state similar to sleep that increases serenity and decreases stress, anxiety and pain. Results are both immediate and cumulative and studies show significant and lasting effects. Many local medical doctors, nurses, physical therapists, chiropractors, counselors and coaches refer clients to The Float Zone.
