Float Room or Float Pod…that is the question.

Does the floating equipment make a difference?

In one simple answer, yes!

There are tons of different ways that you can experience sensory deprivation with devices such as float rooms, float pods, or float rooms. Although each device does the same thing, we’ve found that the float room has a few extra benefits. Here’re some of the features that you can expect when floating in a float room.


It was found that less than 50% of people were comfortable with the smaller float rooms or float pods typically offered by floatation spas. At iSofloat, we have eliminated this fear by providing float rooms that are over 50% larger than float pods and capsules. Each of our four float rooms measures 8ft in length, 6ft wide and are high enough that you can easily stand up and walk around.

**Just to compare, a float pod typically measures 85” in length and 55” in width.  The key difference is how close the lid can be to your face when floating.  Our goal at iSofloat is to provide a relaxed, stress-free environment and our mission was to eliminate the feeling of claustrophobia or confinement.


In addition to more space, the large and light side-opening doors and internal grab handles make getting in and out of the room a breeze. Many people in San Antonio have turned to float therapy due to injury.  By allowing ease of entrance into the float room, this creates a sense of independence for floaters who typically would need assistance. To compare to float rooms and float pods which offer top hatch lids, our doors are easy to close and open. Our private, light-sealed rooms also allow you to float with the door open while achieving all the benefits of sensory deprivation.

Float therapy is a new adventure for many San Antonio residents.  While the reason are endless for floating, it was our mission to provide the very best floating experience available.  Please contact our therapy center for more information.
