Rise Above Floatation is Westchester’s first and only floatation center dedicated to deep relaxation and exceptional awareness through the power of sensory deprivation.

What makes your business special? 

Discovered in the 1950s at the National Institute of Mental Health and popularized as a therapy in the 1970s, floatation therapy (also known as sensory deprivation) removes all stimulation to the senses in order to trigger a deep relaxation response. Through various float environments, such as float pods, tanks and open float rooms, sessions are designed to keep out all light and sound as the client floats like a cork in a hyper-salinated solution of magnesium sulfate (Epsom salts). The only thing you may hear is your heart beating. After 30 to 40 minutes in this perfect dark, you will find yourself thinking one thought at a time accompanied by a mental and physical calm much like the calm you experience when you first wake up from a restful sleep. It’s a highly effective, truly unique experience.

What services do you offer?

We offer private floatation sessions starting at one hour long. We provide everything needed for floating and after floating: shampoos, conditioners, earplugs, towels, lotions, tea, water and more. We also offer massage therapy. Gift cards are available. 

What’s it like coming to your business?

With three different float environments to choose from, Rise Above Floatation allows clients to have more control over their experience. The more control the floater has, the more relaxed they become. Soundproof, lightproof and extremely welcoming, the float session allows the floater to experience their body in a different way than in their usual waking life.
