What if you could float weightlessly in water and relax?
That's exactly what Rosanne Ramirez and Jeff Brion want you to do at their new Laguna Beach business, Float Lounge, where customers can pay to float in one of two enclosed saltwater tanks.
The facility at 1891 S. Coast Hwy. has been open for about a month. It's the first of its kind in Orange County, according to Ramirez.
Float Lounge has two private rooms, each with one enclosed 5-by-9-foot tank that holds 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt and 10 inches of warm filtered water for a person to float in. There are also private showers in the room that use filtered water, and all of Float Lounge's products are organic, Ramirez said.
Each tank is heated to 93 degrees, which is close to a person's body temperature, and after 10 to 15 minutes the body can't even decipher it's in water, Brion said.
