Because of Covid-19 Cloud Nine has instituted a few new safety steps for all of our protection.
- If you would like us to wear a mask, we are happy to accommodate your request.
- When you walk in the door your Flotitian will take your temperature with a "no touch" digital thermometer. If it is high, (we are in Tucson and it does get hot) we will wait a few minutes for you to cool down and take your temperature again. If it's still high, we'll have to postpone your appointment.
- We are a community. After your float you will be asked to wipe down the inside of your float cabin with Hydrogen Peroxide Wipes that we make here. 20 minutes after your float, your flotitician will also spray the inside of the float cabin with more hydrogen peroxide.
- After you leave your flotitican will wipe down all surfaces in the float rooms and bathroom including door knobs and handles.
And now back to our normal sanitation practices. At Cloud Nine Flotation we follow the sanitation practices that the CDC and Floatation Tank Association recommend, plus extras. The water is pristine and filtered twice daily and 3-5 times between float clients using a 5 stage purification system. At Cloud Nine we start with Reverse Osmosis Water (not Tucson municipal), which is further filtered through a structured water filter with shungite. The first line of defense is 800 pounds of epsom salts. Nothing can live or grow in that environment. The float solution is treated with 27% Hydrogen Peroxide, travels through a swimming pool type microfilter, moves through a UV light, then an Ozonator before it makes it's way back into the tank. Using Doctor Masaru Emoto's (from The Hidden Message in Water) method of structured water, words of encouragement and purity are also strategically placed on the tanks. Our bathroom, floors and walls are cleaned daily with hydrogen peroxide, vinegar and bleach when needed.
A word about the air quality at Cloud Nine Flotation. We have an AirScrubber® installed in our air ducts and A/C system. And AirScrubber® uses UV and Ozone technology to clear the air of mold spores, bacteria and virus. We've had the system for 4 years and it is on 24/7. The science behind this system is solid and really works. You might want to ask your HVAC guy about having one installed at your house.
Floating in a solution of high density Epsom salts and clean, pure water, heightens your intuition, deepens your sense of self and allows you to be free of all outside distractions and noise that can make you feel off balance. It is a place to heal your heart, your mind, your body. It is immersing yourself in liquid calm.

What Sets Cloud Nine Flotation Apart From Other Float Centers?
Glad you asked! What sets Cloud Nine Flotation apart from other float centers, is we are set in a quiet adobe home studio where you can relax and experience a gravity free environment, free from light and sound, in neutral temperature water; A TRUE Sensory Deprivation session. In essence, your body will feel like it’s disappearing, giving you blissful stress and pain reduction, and an expanded experience of yourself. After your float you will walk into a hallway that is dimly lit, and a naturally lit bathroom. No harsh lights to disturb your chill. After your shower, you walk into a peaceful space, and your car is right outside. You can take a quiet walk after your float if you desire, or meander in the neighborhood before having to navigate heavy traffic.
What are others saying about Float Therapy?
“I’m so used to trying to control or controlling as much of my life as possible, that the feeling of detachment in the tank was scary. Then the ideas came. I flipped them like a weird Rubik’s Cube over and over til I started to ask if this idea was even important to me; What does this mean to me; Do I even care for the answer anymore? I feel like I have more questions about the new questions I found.”
“Having never experienced floating before, I was a little concerned about how it would go. An entire 60 minutes of nothing? I wasn’t sure if I could handle it. But as soon as I got in the tank and felt the sensation of weightlessness, my concerns faded away. Floating is a great experience for mind, body and spirit. My body felt relaxed, my mind felt awake, yet relaxed and my spirit felt renewed. I highly recommend this experience to athletes and professionals to decrease stress levels and unplug.”
