Excerpts from our community journals
Today I got to have an honest conversation with myself.
With every visit to Palm Ave Float Club, my sessions in the tank grow increasingly profound and life-altering. At first I used the tank to overcome my fear of water. Then as an athlete I floated for the tremendous, immediately-noticeable benefits of muscle recovery and race visualization. Through it all, I’ve gained much clarity and mindfulness in the way I approach life. The best part is, every friend I’ve convinced to try floating has emerged amazed and thoroughly converted as well.
The power of the mind is greater than what I imagined. I learnt to decide how much power each thought should hold.
I’ve been on the road for some months, and praying and wishing I would find some city that had a float tank, and I’m really happy that I just had this experience. I floated here at Palm Ave Float Club for three hours, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget it. I’m very grateful for the experience – I have many more months on the road ahead of me and there will be many many days, hours, that I wish PAFC would just appear in my path again. I feel incredible, it feels like the bath that I never knew I was missing. I feel like I let go of some grime that had accumulated over several months. I’m rested and looking forward to meditating in the evening and seeing how things have changed.
Better than a massage, you enter into nothingness, then awareness.
I have floated about 90 times since 2015. It’s been a 3 year journey. That’s about 135 hours, which is about 6 full days of meditation. The main benefits of this experience are: 1. Better focus and concentration 2. Knowledge of where I store tension in my body (usually stomach muscles) !! 3. Creativity! I can hear music in the tank 4. Overall rest and relaxation 5. Many life insights that make me not procrastinate and act on things 6. Knowing the feeling of deep rest.. 7. Friends! Meeting weird people at the float club 8. Coming to terms with difficult issues and facing them directly 9. Lifestyle changes: adopting yoga and meditation The awareness of where tension is stored is the biggest gain. Without the floatation tank I would have moved through my entire life not knowing that I actually have tension at certain points in body. The float tank gave me that awareness.. and without awareness you can’t dissolve the tension.
This was our first experience to “floatation”. I went through curiosity after hearing a friend talk about it. My friend went for the same reason and we both left the place with the same reaction of WOW! After the session, we walked 3 km into the city of Singapore and then returned by taxi back to our hotel where we slept for 12 hours. Our experience has taught us how floatation eases all the stress and pain of everyday life leaving you with the energy to go on forever. Thank you for this chance to finally overcome our curiosities.
This is an amazing place to visit. Just go there and forget yourself, as the float energizes your mind. body and soul.
Today I finally caught a glimpse of how it feels like to let go. When you are left with nothing except darkness and complete silence, so silent that white noise could be heard. Every thought that’s residing at the back of your mind is amplified, ten-folds or even a hundred. And you are made to face your worst demons, in that safe little pod. And that is how you learn to let go.
Floating gets me out of my head by reminding me I have control of what’s inside it.
What I like most is the honest interaction. A little bit of trust goes a long way. I would highly recommend a visit it is a surreal experience cutting yourself off from the world for 60/90 mins when you constantly have to work with people.
Got lost in the sauce. Atmosphere and hospitality was a 12/10. Would recommend.
I’m an alien. So I felt like i was home, relaxing in my universe.
When you lie down in infinity your body disappears – and the void smiles at us.
I came out of the experience with more questions, but fortunately, I’m a fan of questions.
When all stimulus is taken away, no light, no sound, no weight; the mind is allowed/able to perceive itself. To look within and see that the outside is temporary, the inside is infinite.
