Unlike anything you've ever experienced
Floating creates an environment that cannot be found anywhere else on Earth. When you float, you enter a private float tank filled with 10″ of water with 1200 lbs. of Epsom salts dissolved into it. You lie down in the water, where your body immediately floats because of the incredibly high concentration of Epsom salts.
The water is maintained at the same temperature as the surface of your skin so that in a few minutes, you do not feel the water anymore and remain relaxed and still. The tank has many options, and you can choose to float with the door open or closed, with the lights on or off, and you can listen to a meditation track or rest in silence.
Escape all of the noise and distractions
When floating there are no distractions and very limited sensory inputs, creating the feeling as if time has stood still. The incredibly buoyancy of
the water eliminates all forces of gravity on the musculoskeletal system and nervous system. These two unique facets of floating create
an experience that is deeply relaxing, calms overly stimulated systems, and provides many health benefits.
At Float Canmore all of our regular floating sessions are 60 to 120 minutes long. You can book your first appointment here.
We also offer great memberships for those looking to float on a regular basis.

”This was my first time at Float and my first time floating. What an amazing experience. I did the complete package and it was so worth every single cent. Victoria was very kind and accommodating.Lisa P.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
Elizabeth did my massage and it was honestly the best massage I've had in years. I can't recall a better massage ever! And so needed after a long winter and Covid. I highly recommend this experience to anyone looking for exceptional care in their self care.
”Seriously awesome. I did the 60 minute float, and i feel like I've slept all night in the most comfortable bed. I feel energized and awake. Customer service was awesome. This was mine and my wives first time floating and I felt completely comfortable because everything was explained to us before getting in.Nick M.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
”I absolutely loved my first experience at Float Canmore. As soon as I walked in I felt very comfortable. Travis is very approachable, and is very passionate about his work, which I love! I was excited, but unsure of what I was getting myself into. I do a lot of CrossFit, and I have seen some top level athletes floating, and was always interested to try it. I received a gift card for a birthday present, and was so excited to try it. I had an amazing first float, and can't wait to go back again. Well done Float Canmore!Andrea K.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
”I got a GC for my birthday for a float, and I had no idea what to expect. FC feels like a spa as soon as you walk in. The receptionist was super helpful and explained everything you needed to know. The float is a totally crazy experience if it's your first time. You step into a pod filled with warm water, mavbe half a meter high. as you sit down, then lay down you start to float. It seems obvious, but you don't need to put effort into floating, which in turn helps you completely shut off, meditate, or even sleep. Lights and music on or off, it's a relaxing time. Highly recommend it! Glad Canmore has a float place! 🙂Lacey S.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
”Float Canmore is a wonderful experience to enjoy! It is a time, where for 1 hour, you get a complete rest. You are first welcomed by very friendly and knowledgeable staff and then walked through to a "world" of relaxation! In today's world, even in Canmore... this is a bit of a heavenly place 🙂Isaac H.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
”First time floater and I'II definitely be returning. So relaxing and very much needed for these bones as I spend my work days upright and on the move. Excellent service and I can't say enough good things about the owner/operator. Such a kind soul and always looking out for others first! See you again soon!!Rick M.Verified 5-Star Review on Google
Frequently asked questions
It is very spacious inside our float tanks with light, music, and good ventilation. Most people who are claustrophobic (and you can include the owner in this category) feel an expansiveness and report no issues with floating. Remember that you are always in control of your float experience and can start with the door open, if you prefer.
No worries. Floating is like taking a bath. All you have to do is step in and lay back. You will be able to touch the bottom of the pool with your hands. The salty water will keep you afloat and you will not need to do anything but relax. Some people have float tanks in their home and use them to sleep in and it is completely safe to do so (even while unconscious or sleeping you will remain afloat at all times).
No. Our pools are continuously heated at 34.5 C, the ideal temperature for floating. We are aiming for exact body temperature. You shouldn’t be hot or cold in our float pods.
No. With the epsom salt solution we use (1200lb of epsom salts are dissolved in the water of the tank), everyone floats in our pools. Everyone!
Yes! The tank is not airtight, there is a vent at the top for the air to leave and fresh air enters continuously from the rear. If you are concerned you may want to lay at that end of the tank.
That’s up to you. There is a light switch in all of our float pools that you control. You can choose to have the lights on or off. You can also choose to play music throughout your float session if you would like. Many people find that silence and darkness are the best ways for them to relax and achieve the optimum results through their float experience.
Yes. You must wash your hair before and after each float session. Lacquers and water based dyes are not allowed in the pool. Be sure to take this into consideration when scheduling your appointment. We supply wonderful soaps, shampoos and conditioners from Rocky Mountain Soap Company which is a local company here in Canmore.
Some people are fearful of floating at first and feel as if they will not be in control. You are completely in control of every aspect of your floating experience. You can float with the door open or closed, you can leave lights on, turn on music and you can even go in and out of the tank as you please. The door is very light weight and opens easily from the inside at anytime. When you get into the tank for the first time we suggest opening and closing the door a few times so you have a good understanding of how it feels. If you choose to float in the dark this will help you find the door when you are done.
Pregnant women often find great relief from pain and stiffness while floating, We recommend that pregnant women float in the prone position with elbows on the floor of the tank and chin cupped in hands. In fact, while in this position the fetus is fully floating which allows the mother’s back and pelvic girdle release from the load.
