Our Philosophy

Eastern medicine sees us all as a set of carefully balanced forces or energies. These forces animate and give us the ability to create an inspired and healthy human life. When they fall out of harmony, we experience disease, fatigue, anxiety, depression, pain and other sufferings.

We founded Floating Lotus to help bring those inner forces back into balance. Every one of our treatments is designed to enhance your appearance and engender and release the natural healing energy of your body:
We use the needles of acupuncture to speak to your body and ask it to release blockages of energy or to bring more energy to weak areas. We use the ancient technique of Cupping to draw energy to the surface, boosting your body’s natural defense systems. We use Essential oils – powerful psychoactive chemicals – that act as neurotransmitters and create lasting changes in your mood. Our Infrared Sauna causes a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. Our floatation tank treatments, in which you float in a warm bath of healing salt water in total darkness and silence can be life changing.

When you come to Floating Lotus, we consider and treat every aspect of your emotional, spiritual, social and physical well being. This includes: Enhancing your physical appearance, with facial rejuvenation treatments, and holistic laser hair removal. Breaking addiction and cravings to harmful foods and substances.
Reducing physical pain – anywhere in your body. Clearing emotions and negative mental states that are keeping you from fully actualizing the vision that you have for your life.

We are a group of inspired and creative people with powerful tools. We are always learning and experimenting with new ideas and new techniques. Lao Tsu, the founder of Taoism, said that the journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. Floating Lotus is a basecamp where you can begin the exciting journey towards wholeness.
