Kind Words From Our Clients

"Oakland Floats is *the* best floatation place I’ve ever been to. Easiest to book, cleanest by far, excellent value, and most hassle-free and pleasant in just about every way you can think of."
Shara M.
"The folks at Oakland Floats are also super warm. Really professional place. Highly recommend giving it a shot, especially if you feel some resistance to trying."
Thomas N.
"In a 75-minute ‘float’ I managed to relieve a lot of tension in my upper and lower back, my knees, and even in my neck. I feel rested without having slept and feeling strong without having exercised. I will be returning!"
Kira G.
"I found it incredibly beneficial – like a 'reset' button had been pushed. I felt so very relaxed, but clear and alert afterwards. I would recommend anyone to go check it out."
Kristina S.
"The atmosphere is perfect. The water feels amazing and nurturing, the staff are friendly and helpful, the facility is super clean and the experience is well worth it!"
N. Y.
"I highly recommend this place because the owner and staff are amazing, soft, accommodating and caring. I always feel like a family friend visiting their home when I go there. Cheers!"
Michelle Y.
"Clean, well organized, pleasant & welcoming staff. Great experience--very relaxing!"
Susan T.
"They provide you with a room all to yourself where you shower before and after entering the float. The water is body temperature, so it was perfect. You don't have to worry about anything."
Elizabeth C.
"From the knowledgeable and friendly staff, to the cleanliness and welcoming feel, to the experience itself and the ultimate feeling of relaxation after-- I love Oakland Floats."
Leilani W.
"Without the ever-present bombardment of sight, sound, touch, gravity, smell, heat or cold, who are we? In the tank, we get a hint. And for me it is different every time."
Brad N.
"This place solidly deserves five stars for many reasons. The environment is spa-like and service oriented while being down to earth and without pretension."
Bill P.
"What an amazing experience! Hats off to the others who were able to put such a sensation into words. This is definitely something that I can use to balance out my busy life."
Jackie H.
"You exit clear-minded, creative, rested and healed in many ways. I think it's like defragmenting your internal hard drive. WAY better than a massage--much deeper and longer lasting."
David B.
"While visiting family, I thought I might stop by Oakland Floats for comparison to my spot in LA and I must say, I am impressed. Oakland Floats is on-point with the experience I want to have."
Carly M.
"Floating is an incredible experience both physically and mentally. I highly recommend it for anyone who practices meditation and wants to take it to the next level."
Mari W.
"I'm definitely going to recommend Oakland floats to many of my patients as a perfect way to complement their chiropractic care. John and his team are amazing, thank you!"
Jordan F.
"Thank you for being the best 75 minutes of stillness in my life. I refer my clients here because just like massage therapy, we all need some time to calm the nervous system and refocus our intentions."
Kaylie S.
"My float was incredibly relaxing. When your float time is up, they play relaxing music so you know to wash up. It was a great experience and I will definitely come back!"
Danielle G.
"It was nice to have all the usual environmental stimulation and noise removed and be just with your mind and body. I drifted off. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
Nat F.
"Love this place. Conveniently located, lovely helpful staff, and an amazing experience. Floating is like being back in the womb, there's really nothing else out there like it."
Laura P.
"I was ready to fall into a deep slumber afterward. If you need some weight lifted off your shoulders, this is the place to let your troubles float away."
James B.
"This place is amazing!! To sum things up everyone loved it, and I fell into a state of deep relaxation I could not reach before. I will absolutely be coming back here."
Pucca C.
"Thanks for all the amazing moments, experiences, creative ideas, reconnection (with my body and my self) and the quiet quiet quiet times that we as humans seem to be missing out on more and more."
Ashley E.
