Float tank center opens to help relieve stress and repair body pain

This month, a new Nashville business, Float Horizen, opened four float tanks in Nashville. The float tanks contain 10 inches of water so saturated with Epsom salts that they are more buoyant than the dead sea.

The tanks are thoroughly sound-proofed, and you float in complete darkness.
“Floating is the perfect way to de-stress, meditate, and recover from strenuous exercise,” says Zane Ritter, one of the founders of Float Horizen.

According to Ritter, about 30-minutes into floating, your brain starts producing extra dopamine and endorphins, which boost your mood.

He says the float tank has been shown to relieve stress, accelerate recovery from injuries, fight addiction, eliminate chronic pain, and much more. Mental benefits include enhanced concentration and information absorption.

Float Horizen, which is located at 1012 Russell Street and 10th Avenue South.

Float Horizen offers salt therapy and alternative wellness services including small group yoga and Harmonic Meditation. Spending time in our Salt Room is like “spending a day at the beach.” Our pure salt is a natural sterilizer and anti-inflammatory agent designed to promote and support relaxation and general wellness.
