Essential Wellness Center is an independent, local business created out of passion to help people in need, enthusiasm and a belief that floating , as a practice, can help the majority of people. The float tank (isolation tank or sensory deprivation tank) is an amazingly simple yet powerful tool that can enhance ones overall living experience. Whether you use it for personal development, physiological benefits or for psychological benefits, we believe it has the ability to deeply aid and impact everyone.
We wanted to provide a service that was affordable, practical and inspiring. Amongst any other alternative and holistic health practice we believe floating in a true sensory deprived environment is second to none. We wanted to create a center with float tanks, oxygen bar, essential products and massage therapy for out clients.
