Benefits of Floating


The Journey Within

Did you know that up to 90% of your brain in consumed with the effects of routine environmental stimulation? Light, sound, temperature, touch and gravity bombard your brain capacity daily. Imagine yourself void of all external stimuli, in a space where you are able to completely quiet the mind and find ultimate relaxation; a state that promotes recovery and mindfulness with ease, with traits and benefits of a deep slumber or meditative state.

Welcome to salt 360.

In the heart of Durango, a glowing Southwest mountain town surrounded by towering mountains and the flowing water of the Animas River, you pass through the doorway of salt 360 and begin the transition from your bustling life to restorative calm. Your purpose today is to recharge your mind, body and spirit.

The space is contemporary, comfortable, and void of powerful sounds and harsh lights. The staff is aware of your visit and greets you with the warmth of a trusted friend. Guided to your own state-of-the-art custom designed floatation room, you are immediately comfortable in a space carefully crafted for cleanliness and calm. After simple instruction, a refreshing pre-float shower starts the restorative process, clean and relaxed, your float pool awaits.

Filled with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt and 12 inches of water, the saline solution is warmed to about 95 degrees, your body is effortlessly suspended, the feeling between the air and water vanishes.  The lights fade. Silence. You begin to drift. Unsure of where your body ends and your surroundings begin. The voice inside quiets. The mind opens to oneness as you float motionless. The restorative effects, both mental and physical, begin to take hold.
