The Wave Elite is not a pod nor tank, Wave Float Rooms offer the perfect solution. The preferred comfort of a float room along with the signature Wave contour ceiling, will provide the ideal atmosphere for the perfect float experience. Our "Room within a Room" design, provides a heated buffer zone that allows for a condensation free float, with precise air temperature control allows for a consistent float therapy session.
The Wave exclusive design offers a glass entry door and roomy interior with a spacious, bright and welcoming atmosphere. Effectively eliminating the fear factor associated with pods and tanks, you can see why the Wave Float Room has been called the perfect hybrid between a pod and other float rooms.

• Minimum of eight turnovers of solution between clients
• Three points of suction for the most thorough cleaning
• Automatically dossed, UV, ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide
This is why VIVE invested in the ultimate in next generation float therapy equipment.
Floating is defined as:
Resting or remaining buoyant on the surface of a liquid made up of 10 inches of water and 1,000 pounds of pharmaceutical grade magnesium sulfate (Epsom salt)
During a float you are suspended effortlessly in a super saturated solution of Epsom salt and water within a light- and sound-controlled environment that reduces sensory stimulation and effectively suspends the effects of gravity on the central nervous system.
The water is at skin temperature and after a few minutes you lose the awareness of where the body ends and the water begins. Resting in this unique environment creates profound changes within the mind/body system and actually improves the overall function of the brain and central nervous system. After your first float you may think it seems like magic but it’s actually backed by over forty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance.
Floating is about everything that you WON'T be doing.
You won't be fighting gravity. The 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie passively and effortlessly on your back. As you lay in absolute tranquility, every muscle is allowed to gradually relieve it’s functional tensions. Your entire body, including internal organs, muscles and bones will be, for the first time, completely rested and at ease.
While underwater music and color light therapy can be provided, there is typically no light or sound, during your float session. The water and air in the float rooms are kept at skin temperature – 93.5 degrees. This means you lose track of where your body ends and the water and air begins. Free from the functions of interpreting and processing light, sound, temperature, gravitational forces and other sensations, the brain is able to expand into areas ordinarily inaccessible except during deep meditation. It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal. Thus, a wonderfully freeing and opening process begins to take effect, stress is left behind, healing takes place more rapidly, learning and creativity is enhanced, sudden insights and inspirations may unfold and problems are more easily solved.
Feelings of profound peace and joy are induced by the release of dopamine and endorphin's, the body’s natural mood elevators and pain reducers. A beautiful silence is experienced and a lightness of being that cannot be felt in any other way unfolds.
After your float you’ll feel refreshed, rejuvenated and reVIVEd, a feeling that can last for days.
Our Float Rooms are 4.5 feet wide by 8 feet long, creating a very open environment. While tanks, pods and rooms offer the same 'gravity-free' experience, it is often said that the sensory-free aspect can vary between the three. What we focused on while selecting our float rooms was the ability to obtain a 'near' perfect sensory-free environment. Our rooms allow us to control the water and air temperature within a degree of our 93.5 skin temperature therefore creating a void of touch. Light, smell and noise are kept at a bare minimum creating a near perfect sensory-free experience. Of course not all are ready for a complete sensory-free environment so the light and music are controlled by you should you choose. It is our hope that eventually you will be able to go sensory-free.
What are the benefits of float rooms? There are added benefits to a float room. Float rooms are significantly larger than a pod (or tank), and they are large enough to stand up and walk in and out, with a low entry point as well. The opening glass door allows easy entry into the room, especially for those with reduced mobility or muscle soreness. In addition, an advanced heating system allows us to control the air and water minimizing humidity and condensation which can disturb the float experience by dripping. The Wave Elite float rooms have been designed to create a void of senses and gravitational pull allowing your mind and body to solely focus on mental and physical rest and recovery.
