FUNDRAISER

Help us raise donations and benefit yourself in the process. 
Life Connections Peer Recovery Services has partnered with Integrated Functional Health to
help raise funds for our cause.

How It Works:

  • Book an appointment at Integrated Functional Health and engage in a Float Tank Session.  
  • Tell them you floating to support Life Connections Peer Recovery Services.
  • IFH will donate $20 to the Life Connections for every regularly priced Float Tank Session designated for Life Connections Peer Recovery

A Float Tank is pretty much what is sounds like. A tank filled with about 10-11 inches of water, densely saturated with Magnesium Sulfate (Epsom Salt). The solution is so dense, that you actually float at the surface of the water with no effort at all. The water is heated to approximate the temperature of the surface of your skin. Light and sound are reduced or eliminated depending on the setup of the tank and room. There are different styles of float tanks, each with their own unique advantages.

Regardless of the type of flotation tank, the principles are the same:
Produce an environment where the person floats at the surface of the water effortlessly
Reduce sensory input by removing light, sound, and touch inputs
Create an environment ideal to facilitate a profound level of physical and mental relaxation
