I haven’t gotten a decent night of sleep for 3 years due to my Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), a neurological disorder, and Insomnia. It kept getting progressively worse, to the point of averaging 1-3 hours of sleep per night. As you would imagine, this has caused quite the exhaustion to my days as I still have to work and run my business. I have been on quite the journey to figure out what has been causing this mysterious health issues. After seeing Eastern, holistic, and Western doctors to no avail, as well as spending thousands of dollars on all sorts of treatments and meds, nothing seemed to cure me. Regretfully, the only thing that would ever offer a decent night of sleep was taking a narcotic and/or xanax. But this was a dark path I did not wish to get addicted to, so I avoided it as much as possible. After countless frustrating nights of no sleep, I found something that worked! [Enter FLOAT THERAPY into my life!] I learned about Float during a tasting I was doing for my cookie company at their spa. Who would’ve thunk the relief I was searching for all these years came from a therapy so simple and natural from floating in 1000 lbs of epson salt. Since starting Float, I’ve been sleeping close to 6 hours per night and my RLS is gone! After I float, I feel brand new and rebooted. I am happy and full of energy and life.
My experience has also been very spiritual for me as well. You honestly feel like you’re escaping and unplugging from the chaotic world we live in–especially living in the city. The calming and therapeutic environment provided by Float Vietnam takes you to another place you cannot find anywhere else because it forces you to be with yourself and your thoughts. We spend so much time and money working out at the gym and getting our hair and make-up done at the spa, but we fail to realize how important it is to nourish our soul as well.
Lastly, as embarrassing as this sounds, at 42 years old, I never floated a day in my life. It’s been a life-long fear I was never able to conquer. Grant it, I know salt makes us more buoyant, but can you imagine how gratifying it was for me to literally float for the first time?! I think this will be my secret weapon to crack through my fear of never learning to swim. I honestly think I’ll finally be able to “let go” and trust I can learn to swim at my age.
What I thought would be a relaxing experience turned out to be life changing. For years I was given herbs, supplements, opiates, and xanax, and it turns out all I needed was the natural healing from God’s salt and FLOAT !
This is an absolutley amazing find in Hanoi. I always tell people that floating is the perfect practice if your looking to improve your health, inner peace, and general wellbeing - and that is certainly the case at 'float Hanoi' as well! I have been floating regularly for a few years in the US, and I can say that the tanks and facilities here are truly top of the line. Also Minh, one of the owners, was incredibly welcoming and helpful - he even took me to find an ATM machine after my float so i could pay him! Then followed by showing me a gas station so I could fill up my motorbike (Ive only been here two days). 🙂 Float Hanoi exemplifies what selfless service is all about - I feel at home in Hanoi already just from my first experience here (Of course im also relaxed and rejuvinated from the float itself). I bought a package of 5 "one hour" floats, and when those are up, I will be buying a package of 5 "ninety minute" floats. All that said, just do yourself a big favor and give this place a real shot! You wont be at all dossapointed. ????
I recieved a voucher for my birthday and was sceptical about the new experience. I was really impressed with the friendly gentleman who explian the process very well to me in English and make me feel at ease and relaxed. The actual float experience blew me away. I havent been so relaxed after my session and continued the zen feeling well throughout the day. I highly recommend making an appointment and experiencing this wonderful sensory deprivation technique. They also sell CBD oils which ca be used to relax your mind and body. 5 stars is a no brainer.
We tried the couple float room. Each person has her or his own floatation pod. The staff, Duc, is responsible and details the steps and common doubts that we have. It’s relaxing and an interesting experience. It’s like being in a world of your own. Recommended for getting back your inner peace and calm 🙂 TIPS on getting there: make sure you enter the 51 alley.
The last time I floated was back in Bangkok in 2019. My husband and I were regulars at the facility there. The Hanoi float center feels much more “homemade” than the one in Bangkok. Not saying that neither is better than the other; the setting feels very different, which is something to keep in mind. Otherwise, the tanks work the same - the only difference would be that you have the option to pry the tank’s cover open slightly with the ones in BKK but here, it’s either fully close or open, which can be uncomfortable for first-time floaters. Also, if you haven’t meditated for a long time, it can be pretty challenging during the first few sessions as your mind WILL keep wandering. We did the couple floating session for 60 minutes, and we didn’t regret giving it a try. It was nice, dark, and quiet (something you don’t get much from living in Hanoi). The staff understands and speaks English very well. The online reservation was hassle free, and the team will contact you a day before by phone to reconfirm. Note that they are not really responsive on Facebook messenger, so it’s better to call. It’s a straight forward experience, you go in, pay, rinse a bit, float, get out, rinse again, dress up and leave. Nothing to complain about and would personally return.
I had incredible good session although the staff wasn't very welcoming. I had a feeling that the guy was a bit shy but he introduced me to the whole ceremony. Place is good and quite outside of the whole chaos. Prices are reasonable and youve got everything you need.
I can’t say enough amazing things about my experience with Float Therapy. I am so grateful. You guys are doing something pretty amazing, and I sure hope more people are able to learn about and benefit from your therapy.
