RELIEF FROM PAIN
My husband has severe back pain and he said that he felt no pain while he was in the pod…
“My husband and I floated for the first time today, it was awesome!!! We were both a little nervous as this was out of our element, but the directions they email you in advance were spot on and when we arrived, we were immediately greeted by name and given a short (but thorough) introduction. The whole place was spotless, very nicely done, all of the amenities available were great. It’s a very weird feeling to not have to fight the water and just float, but oh so lovely once you relax into it. It’s an awesome feeling to just float and not really know where the water line ends and the air begins. The gentleman that gave us our intro gave us a lot of little tips to try so that we had the best experience. My husband has severe back pain and he said that he felt no pain while he was in the pod, and that is great to hear! He said he also feels pretty good since he got out of the session. I think it’s perfect for anyone who is just looking to relax (which was me) and for anyone trying to get some pain relief (my husband). I highly recommend it!”
I had a serious back injury last year… It was so nice to be able to float and have my body relax to the point of relieving my pain now going on 3 days.
“I called last week and made an appointment for my wife and myself. It was our first float session. It was Friday morning at 11am. It was fantastic! As a part time Lyft driver I am always letting everyone know about Float Milwaukee. I hope you are around a long time. I had a serious back injury last year and the pain has really slowed me down. It was so nice to be able to float and have my body relax to the point of relieving my pain now going on 3 days. Thank you. The staff was friendly and caring and gave us a pre-float tour. This business is well run, because from the call and booking and the emails we received, our appointment was flawless. My wife loved the recover chairs and amenities, it was all very inviting. We will be back!”
I have never in my life felt more at peace and more relaxed. My mind was at ease, my muscles no longer were sore, my back pain was gone…
“YA’LL LISTEN UP… if you haven’t tried floating, you are legit missing out on one of the most relaxing experiences. I have never in my life felt more at peace and more relaxed. My mind was at ease, my muscles no longer were sore, my back pain was gone…sensory deprivation is something you MUST try. Float Milwaukee is so amazing and their staff is the best. I felt warm and welcomed before and after my experience. I even rested a bit afterwards in the relaxation area and enjoyed some reading and tea.”
I have one bad ankle and the float helps releasing the pain for 3 days now.
“Wow! I was a little nervous about trying FLOAT. Keith was awesome to give us the tour and explained what to do. I had the open pool and it was a little struggle to stay in the pool at first 15 minutes. I let my body release out and felt very relaxed! Awesome experience. I have one bad ankle and the float helps releasing the pain for 3 days now. Will go back later! Thank you, Keith and Dianne for assisting to interpret…”
I’ve had a stressful few weeks and my neck and shoulders were beyond tight as a result. After my float I now feel like complete mush–very relaxed mush.
“I had my 2nd float tonight at Float MKE and had a chance to try the newer open float pools. It was amazing! I didn’t mind the pod at all my first time, but enjoyed the larger pool because I didn’t hit any sides at all. I’ve had a stressful few weeks and my neck and shoulders were beyond tight as a result. After my float I now feel like complete mush–very relaxed mush. I can’t wait to float again!”
I suffer from chronic pain and sensory overload on a regular basis; this takes it all away.
“I can’t say enough about this floating experience. I suffer from chronic pain and sensory overload on a regular basis; this takes it all away. The tea room and meditation area are wonderful. The staff is very Zen and explains anything that you need to know. The float itself is amazing. I find myself wishing it was longer so will opt for a 90 minute whenever I can . It is a wonderful noises off treat for your body mind and soul . All in all this is a wonderful spa experience. The relaxation feeling lasts for 2 to 3 days for me sometimes better than any massage can do for me. Try it I think you would like it.”
I didn’t know until after float #1 that the knots in my neck & shoulders would release, even more so than after a massage.
“I purchased 3 floats & have done one each week, the last one on 1/19/16. I knew it would be relaxing but I didn’t know until after float #1 that the knots in my neck & shoulders would release, even more so than after a massage. My skin & hair feels so silky- smooth post float. I’m 67. Floating is a fountain of youth.”
…found relief with my chronic pain.
“A must have experience…found relief with my chronic pain…resolution with a current huge emotional conflict…and a mental release from mind chatter …resulting in blissful joy!!!…beautiful facility…fantastic staff!”
RELAXATION & STRESS REDUCTION
More relaxing than any massage I’ve ever had.
“More relaxing than any massage I’ve ever had. If you have aches and painful arthritis, it relieves it at least for a little while. Highly recommended.”
I don’t think my body & mind have been this relaxed ever!
“What a wonderful experience. I don’t think my body and mind have been this relaxed ever! Calming, relaxing environment. Super friendly, knowledgeable owner and staff. Definitely coming back!”
More relaxed than I’ve been in years.
“More relaxed than I’ve been in years. Lighting and music enhance the experience. This was my first float ever. All was explained to me well ahead of time. I feared I would be claustrophobic, but I was not. Andy and staff make all feel comfortable as soon as they walk in the door. Relaxation and tea room is great. Clean and comfortable accommodations; great after float changing room. I will be buying a 3-session package and bringing a friend.”
The closest way to describe it would be to imagine resting on a cloud for an hour.
“I floated recently and it was one of the coolest experiences I’ve had in a while. The closest way to describe it would be to imagine resting on a cloud for an hour. Andy and crew were super nice and the place was accommodating on all fronts including a place to collect yourself and enjoy some tea. Would definitely recommend giving this a try if you’re looking for a new way to relieve stress and chill for awhile.”
I drifted off and in what felt like seconds later my session was over.
“Nap time for adults! I’ve “floated” several times and on each occasion it has been different. My first time I couldn’t get relaxed enough for my mind to turn off and stop pondering how many minutes were left. However, by my most recent float, I drifted off and in what felt like seconds later my session was over.
The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the facilities are immaculate. I would recommend the experience to anyone who is curious about meditation through sensory deprivation, or just wants some true peace and quiet. The only improvement I might suggest is the offer of a post float massage.”
I’m not sure if I fell asleep or just blanked out but after all was said and done, I feel amazing even a day later.
“This was an incredible experience, from the moment I walked in the door to the moment I left. It takes some getting used to at first and it’s hard to turn off the brain especially for someone who has anxiety and overthinks everything. I’m not sure if I fell asleep or just blanked out but after all was said and done, I feel amazing even a day later. I still have a little tension in my shoulders and back but the calmness that I feel is amazing. If I could do this once or twice a week, I most definitely would.”
My stress from the week feels like it just melted off and I’m feeling invigorated and restored.
“I feel fantastic after my first float. The rooms were spotless and the staff was courteous. Toiletries, robes, towels and extra comfortable slippers are available for your personal use. You can also sip tea in the waiting area before or after the floating session. Once you get the hang of floating, it is extremely enjoyable, but the greatest benefit is how you feel afterwards. My stress from the week feels like it just melted off and I’m feeling invigorated and restored. I highly recommend visiting Float Milwaukee.”
Floating in a pod, or in the open pool, put me to sleep. As someone who has suffered from claustrophobia, I had absolutely no issue…
“As a Veteran and hard working single woman, this was the absolute best gift I have given myself in a long time. Floating in a pod, or in the open pool, put me to sleep. As someone who has suffered from claustrophobia, I had absolutely no issue in the Pod because it is huge and gives you enough space to sit up and also see what’s going on because the light is on in side of the Pod when you close the top. I felt as if I was floating in heaven, I was able to turn my mind off and actually relax and unwind. It’s better than getting a massage, acupuncture, Etc. I actually have color treated hair and it did not damage my hair or cause any damage to my skin, in fact I feel softer and healthier as a result of my floats. A must try for anyone who has ever even considered taking this path. Thank you so much for the opportunity which allowed Veterans a chance to take a break from our PTSD and any struggles we have ever faced.”
I feel so relaxed and my skin feels really nice!
“Very relaxing & clean! I was gifted this experience for my birthday, it’s not the type of thing I would normally do but I really enjoyed it and will do it again. I feel so relaxed and my skin feels really nice!”
Left feeling like I had had a 3 hour massage and 3 glasses of wine after my hour float.
“Loved everything about my first float. A little hesitant at first but staff and facility are great. Have a lot of stress and craziness going on right now and this was a great help. Left feeling like I had had a 3 hour massage and 3 glasses of wine after my hour float. Very relaxed. Cannot wait for my 2nd float, bet it will be even better!”
I was very apprehensive going in, but once I settled in and consciously relaxed it was an amazing, weightless, daydream-ish experience.
“Fantastic first experience. The facility is beautiful, the staff is friendly and super welcoming and helpful! I was very apprehensive going in but once I settled in and consciously relaxed it was an amazing, weightless, daydream-ish experience. I left feeling energized and relaxed at the same time. I would definitely do this again!”
I couldn’t believe my hour was up.
“I was a little apprehensive about this. But it was one of the most relaxing experiences. I did a 1 hour to try it out. I honestly didn’t think I would make it laying there 1 hour. But I was wrong. You leave everything behind and relax fully. I couldn’t believe my hour was up.”
Even my skeptic of a son went in feeling crabby & tense, running on only 3 hours of sleep the night before & came out feeling great!
“Just got back from my first visit to Float Milwaukee. First but definitely not the last visit. I feel like I just got back from vacation! It takes a few minutes to get used to but then time just flies. I feel so relaxed & refreshed. I feel like this is something everyone needs to try. Even my skeptic of a son went in feeling crabby & tense, running on only 3 hours of sleep the night before & came out feeling great! Try it for yourself, you won’t be sorry.”
Felt relaxed and clear-headed right away, with the sense of calmness staying with me for hours…
“I had an enlightening float and can’t wait to go back! Felt relaxed and clear-headed right away, with the sense of calmness staying with me for hours afterward. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the facilities were spotlessly clean. Thank you Float Milwaukee!”
I was so relaxed I fell asleep in the pool.
“Had a wonderful first float here. Staff were friendly and helpful. Very relaxing environment and unique experience I highly recommend. I was so relaxed I fell asleep in the pool. Not sure about the pods, will try them next, but the pool was great for ‘starfish’ style floating.”
Wish I would’ve realized just how relaxing and calming the effects are.
“This place is phenomenal. My son bought me a float for Christmas and it took me over a year to use it. Wish I would’ve realized just how relaxing and calming the effects are. I love this place & I love how military friendly they are. I HIGHLY recommend any & everyone to try an hour long float session. It will refresh you. The employees here have always been exceptionally helpful & friendly!”
I am a very high stressed person so I wasn’t sure if I could turn my mind off but after about ten minutes, I was totally relaxed.
“The email they send you before is very helpful as to what to expect before your first float. The actual room was nice. They walked us through how to do everything and said to expect a voice to tell you when to begin and end. I used the neck pillow provided as I didn’t wanna get water in my ears, worked great.
I am a very high stressed person so I wasn’t sure if I could turn my mind off but after about ten minutes, I was totally relaxed. The salt water seemed a bit slimy but I attribute that to the high salt content. Highly recommend to anyone with higher stress and looking for a way to unwind.”
“By float 3, I was able to relax pretty quickly and get into some really cool meditative states.”
“Awesome float center. The interior is beautiful and spacious. The owner, Andy, was working when I came in to float and was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was very clean and I had a wonderful float in one of their spacious pods. This is one of those places in Milwaukee that you need to check out. I highly recommend committing to at least 3 floats. I had a wonderful first float, but it took me a bit to relax. By float 3, I was able to relax pretty quickly and get into some really cool meditative states. Happy floating!”
At one moment it felt as if I was in a spaceship, moving forward through an outer corridor that had windows looking at all the stars in the universe.
“Fantastic and friendly staff. Both of them shook my hand and introduced themselves. Talked to them a bit about Joe Rogan/Duncan Trussell and their floating experiences.
Well, the actual float was more than I expected. I had known about them for a couple years and I have a daily meditation practice, but this is a truly novel environment and it was entirely worth it.
The float I did was 90 minutes, I believe the most common route is 60 minutes, but for me that last 30 minutes was crucial and is where I got to much deeper feelings in there. At one moment it felt as if I was in a spaceship, moving forward through an outer corridor that had windows looking at all the stars in the universe.
The room is perfect with the shower and with your own pod and double sound-proofed room, but once you’re inside the pod with the lights turned off, you feel like you’re someplace entirely different. I definitely didn’t feel like I was in Wisconsin. Simply, it was cosmic.
When I exited the room, I was shaking my head in disbelief that I haven’t tried it up until now, and I want to tell everyone I know that they should head over there.
Afterwards, it was a more than relaxed environment, as the other 2 floaters were sipping tea and chatting with the employee. They provide complimentary tea and there’s a relaxation room with an extraordinary book compiling 150 Portland artists’ work inspired from their float sessions.
There was a thunderstorm as I was driving home, and the street lights reflecting in the water on the street all appeared different. Also, I was listening to Sgt. Pepper directly after being sensory deprived, and it sounded even better than usual. Seriously just go to Float Milwaukee and see for yourselves.”
Floating allowed me to completely relax and clear my mind.
“Loved this experience! I often suffer from too many thoughts rushing through my mind and never just being in the moment. Floating allowed me to completely relax and clear my mind. I felt completely rejuvenated after! Thank you for the great experience!”
…I won’t be needing a massage at a high price salon any more!
“I am a first time floater and I had an amazing experience. The receptionist was amazing with getting me prepared for my float session and we talked for awhile after I was done. Thank you for feeling like a home away from home and I won’t be needing a massage at a high price salon any more!
I’m trying to achieve clarity and focus right now as my life is in a major transition. Float really helped me with something I always struggled with, attaining inner solace.
The staff here is so accommodating and pleasant. The experience of floating is absolutely wonderful. This facility is well-maintained and pristine. It’s easy to find the location and parking nearby.”
Very purifying and transformative for those wanting to ‘let go’.
“I stopped by out of curiosity and Heather offered me a cup of tea and an appointment if willing to wait for about an hour. Listening to others coming and going, people LOVE this place.
I browsed a neat book, ‘Blue Mind’ (Wallace Nichols) in the waiting area, reminded me of another I had read – ‘The True Power of Water’ (Masaru Emoto). When aware of these concepts, the float is optimized and the relaxation is amazing. Stress melts away!
When finished, I never felt so clean and refreshed! Very purifying and transformative for those wanting to ‘let go’.”
Fun to play and experience different perceptions…
“Such a great place! I went in with little expectations and just wanted to let myself experience the float however I see fit. I didn’t want to pressure my mind into this deep meditation the first time. The place is really serene with modern decor and a place for decompressing after your float. They have community journals, coloring books, water/tea, other mindfulness books to look through and contribute to after you are done with your float. They give you good instructions on how to prepare for the float. I would suggest to wear the earplugs. My friend did not and her ear canals were caked in salt after we got out and the water evaporated. Fun to play and experience different perceptions and feel weird weight of your arms and how taking away sight and hearing impacts the rest of your senses. Will definitely be going back!”
At 36 weeks pregnant I was so excited at the thought of finding some weightlessness and comfort. I found this and more!
“I had such a wonderful experience here! At 36 weeks pregnant I was so excited at the thought of finding some weightlessness and comfort. I found this and more! The staff was so kind and knowledgeable, they really added to the whole experience. I look forward to my next visit.”
This is the perfect way to turn off your brain and just let go of your body…
“The first time I came out of this place I felt as though I was high on a sedative, and I was pregnant. This is the perfect way to turn off your brain and just let go of your body for a short amount of time.”
VETERANS & PTSD
From the setting, even before I float, I feel such peace.
“Float’s staff is so kind and down-to-earth–they always have been, including the owner. From the setting, even before I float, I feel such peace. They have really outdone themselves in setting up the rhetorical situation. Embodying an essence of peace is pinnacle here.
Back some time they were doing phenomenal military vet and family discounts, which my mother and I reaped; that was SO thoughtful! And such an applicable gift for those who have served. The toll of the experiences had by vets and their families are some no others will ever fully understand. Float MKE offered a solution of great value, I believe, and I am very grateful for that.
Nonetheless, the product is fabulous. I don’t think the price is bad relative to–let’s say–a spa. You should want to float, and you will want to float again–at Float MKE!”
QUALITY OF SERVICE
The experience here from start to finish is by far the best I have encountered in the float industry around the state!
“The experience here from start to finish is by far the best I have encountered in the float industry around the state! From start to finish I knew what to expect and the helpful tips to make my float experience much more relaxing is something that no other float place had provided in the initial float. I recommend this place to everyone I know. Take some time in the post-float lounge and the herbal tea provided was the first tea I’ve ever liked. Thank you so much for providing excellent service! I can’t wait to go back!”
The staff were friendly and made me feel comfortable.
“Floated for the first time yesterday and had an amazing experience. The staff were friendly and made me feel comfortable. The place was WAY cleaner and nicer than I expected. The whole float procedure was easy to follow and I wasn’t confused at all, albeit a little nervous. After the float there is a clean little room to “freshen up”, and then a zen sitting room with some books and stuff to unwind and gather yourself a bit before heading out. I’ll definitely be back and will recommend to anyone who is interested in floating.”
Float has a very clean, welcoming atmosphere.
“I would highly recommend this experience to everyone I know!! Float has a very clean, welcoming atmosphere. This was my first float ever. The staff did an excellent job of explaining everything. It is such a relaxing experience!! Amazing!”
Every time I go to Float Milwaukee, I fall in love a little more.
“Every time I go to Float Milwaukee, I fall in love a little more. The entire atmosphere is relaxing yet inviting. The staff is absolutely amazing! The pods and pools are very clean! There is nothing bad I can day about this little piece of heaven.”
The facility was quiet, calm, and clean.
“My first time floating I came here. Was a great experience. The facility was quiet, calm, and clean. They have a nice post float area to put yourself together if you’d like before stepping back into the world. The rooms themselves are warm, with a shower right there. The pod has an optional light and music that can be turned off. The water is mostly body temp, could be slightly warmer and is an option if asked for. It was amazing, very relaxing. I fell asleep at one point which I totally didn’t expect but it was that wonderful. I can’t wait to go back!”
The atmosphere is pure bliss…
“The atmosphere is pure bliss…the staff is awesome and the float is magical..don’t sleep on this thing!”
“The ambiance is beautiful and serene. Everything is always crystal clean.”
“Float Milwaukee is an amazing place. The Owner, Andy, put extra thought into setting up the environment in order for it to be free of sounds and vibrations while you are floating and I for one totally appreciate the time spent!! The staff has always been friendly and enthusiastic about floating. The ambiance is beautiful and serene. Everything is always crystal clean. I have floated a lot and Float Milwaukee always comes out on top and my favorite float place! Try the open floats, more room and a different feel than the pods!”
Float Milwaukee is fantastic!
“Float Milwaukee is fantastic! Floating is amazing on so many levels…physical, emotional, spiritual….Very unique and wonderful!”
Clean environment, friendly staff…
Clean environment, friendly staff and plenty of restaurants nearby in case you’d like a good meal after your Float experience. I went on a Sunday and traffic was minimal, with easy-access parking right across the road from the business.
The staff had thought of EVERYTHING I could possibly desire…
“I cannot even say how wonderful the entire experience at Float MKE was – it blew my mind! From my first call to the moment I walked out the door, zen and grateful, Andy was beyond helpful. The staff had thought of EVERYTHING I could possibly desire in my floating experience, and Andy took his time showing me around, explaining everything thoroughly, and assuaged any fears I was having come up around the experience. While the float itself was beautiful, you can float lots of places. I will be going back to Andy at Float Milwaukee because of the incredible customer service and attention to detail, and his commitment to quality and care. If you’ve been thinking about trying it, I recommend it 1000%!”
