"Let your troubles just float away"

Founded: April, 2011

Led by: Terri L. Stangl

Why They’re Unique:The floating experience limits external stimuli and virtually eliminates the effects of gravity, giving your mind less environmental and sensory input to deal with and process. It can be an aid both to people who already have a meditation practice, as well as those who have had difficulty meditating. While floating, the slowest brainwaves are accessed, offering a state of deep rest and awareness not available in the bustle of everyday life. Groups who are curious about flotation and its connection to physical and mental well-being may want to check out examples of the informational presentations available from owner Terri Stangl.

The flotation tank is fully enclosed and temperature controlled. It contains a dense solution of water and Epsom Salts so you lie back and float weightlessly on the surface.

"Super relaxing. Terri was fantastic to deal with, extremely flexible, and offered great information on flotation, among other things. i've never floated prior, but i will again, and i'm very happy i went."

"This was a very relaxing and therapeutic experience!"

"It was amazing! I would highly recommend it and plan to tell everyone I know about it, and return myself."

"Wonderful experience"

"This is amazing experience. Highly recommend a visit here! Completely relaxing and my skin felt hydrated after. Will definitely be back!"

"I had never heard of flotation as a relaxation tool. What a wonderful experience! The owner was cordial and professional. The facility was sparkling clean. All the various aspects of the experience were clearly explained to me before I entered the bathroom/shower area. The flotation chamber itself was large enough to prevent any feeling of claustrophobia. The water temperature was comfortable, and the Epsom salt created a perfect environment for floating on the surface. The hour I spent in the water was deeply relaxing and therapeutic. I will definitely return to Great Lakes Flotation."

Meet The Relaxation Expert

Terri L. Stangl started as an attorney and Executive Director of Center for Civil Justice in Saginaw. Graduated from Yale with a B.A. and studied Law at the University of Michigan.

Terri became interested in floating because she wanted to make flotation available to more people in Michigan as a tool for relaxation and personal change. She recognized the value of an experience that helps people relax deeply, access their slower brain waves, and that quiets the inner dialogue. Many of the busy and successful people she knew - from attorneys to non-profit managers to business owners to parents - told her that they found it difficult to slow down long enough to access the creative and problem-solving potential available from their own minds.
