Excellent/Unbeatable customer service & superb facilities!

I went for the first time to use the infrared sauna.Once I stepped out of the elevator- I felt relaxed and calmer - forgetting the noise and chaos of nyc living. The woman at the front desk greeted me and after a short intake I was led to the upstairs sauna.It was a very relaxing sauna - in its own room with adjacent spa shower. It was truly a nice way to take a break and receive the benefits of the sauna on my aching, tense muscles. I would highly recommend trying the sauna and I am planning my next visit to try the flotation therapy. I also saw they offer yoga classes and other spa services. More...

I have been coming here for years after groupon introduced me to this spa a long time ago. I always get my microdermabrasions with Natalia she is the absolute best. I am very particular about my skin and only trust Natalia. The receptionist Camille is very helpful and friendly, I have seen many receptionists go through this office and Camille is a great addition hopefully she stays. Go here for the best facials by Natalia More...

I went here for my first infrared session and I felt so comfortable from the moment I stepped in. The sauna was comfortable and clean and I had a lovely shower afterwards. Lotions and gel and shampoo and conditioner all provided. The receptionist was lovely and welcoming and there is a great airy solarium where they do yoga; I'll definitely try that again. More...

I have floated in the past, but I found the facilities & equipment/setup preferable to the other I've been to. The staff was clearly & concisely informative about operation. They don't use pods - they have a superior design with a glass door (which doesn't impact the experience negatively whatsoever) to lower anyone's chances of claustrophobia (which isn't a problem for me but others I know won't try for that reason). The technology makes it work well, but feel less closed in. So that's a score! They had nice products for your use when the float ends. She was also nice & helpful. They had a lot more services there too that looked interesting - next time I'm in town I hope to check some of them out. My boyfriend had been wanting to try floating, so we both were able to go at the same time in different spaces & he really enjoyed it as well. A very peaceful & much needed experience that I am grateful I stumbled across. More...

I did one float. It was fine, obviously relaxing, and I enjoyed it. A few years later I tried it again and it was a WHOLE OTHER LEVEL of relaxation. It was transporting. It was so relaxing that I lost mental touch with my body. I was 95% asleep and would've sworn I was in bed at home - I could feel the pillow and sheets - but obviously I was not. I have NEVER been that relaxed, ever, in any environment or under ANY chemical, physical, or other circumstances. It felt at least 3 times longer than it really was. When it was over it took me at least a full minute to be able to use my brain to convince my body to move. I was SO relaxed that it was a little freaky. If you need this kind of relaxation in your life, give this place a try - and try going more than once, because like other kinds of experiences, it seems the first time you're just figuring out what it IS, and the second time and thereafter you can actually fully enjoy its benefits.The whole place is sparkling clean, peaceful, and welcoming. Alena at the front desk was SO nice. More...

I loved the gal that greeted me and spent time answering each of my questions. I would love to have her acknowledged for such great customer service and knowledge that she displayed. The space has a sacred feeling. So please omg to the senses. The salt room is where I visited first and within a few seconds I was engulfed into this bean pod that was so comfortable. Before I knew it 45 mins had flown by. I was shown the other areas and I will go soon to the floating pool. That looks so relaxing. I can't wait to return. Everyone needs to experience the Floating Lotus. More...

I tried the salt room and infrared sauna.  I didn't really see the benefit of the salt room but the dry sauna was great.  The salt room is a very small room with just one bed and heating laps .  If there's a yoga class in session, the room is not sound-proof and you can actually heard the instructor talk, but I was so tired that day I actually fell asleep for a short while.  The sauna is right across the hall and has it's own shower (not full bathroom, no toilet) so it was an easy transition.  The sauna was already heated and set to 30 minutes, I started sweating at 15 minute mark but it felt very comfortable.  There are water and towels in the room and they also automatically build in extra 20-30 minutes for you to shower after the sauna so no one will interrupt you.Online appointment is very easy and payment and quick at the end of the session.

Had a wonderful experience using the infrared sauna and salt bath for the first time.  The treatment was incredible and I left feeling so de-stressed.  The young lady who helped us was incredibly warm and kind.  My partner and I signed up for more sauna and salt bath treatments...as well as floating sessions.  I felt like I had a week's vacation in an hour and a half!  Can't wait for more.

Came to this establishment as a first time floater and was blown away! Beth immediately greeted me and answered all my questions before I was seated in their beautiful lobby and helped myself to some delicious tea. Beth then brought me to the beautifully designed floating room and thoroughly explained how everything worked. My floating experience was incredible! The tank was very comfortable, clean and spacious. I did not feel remotely frightened or claustrophobic which were my fears. Will be returning again! More...

Had such a wonderful experience here. Everyone was so nice, the facility is clean and beautiful. I celebrated my 30th birthday here with a float, salt cave, and sauna session and it was so relaxing and exactly what I was looking for. I mentioned that I was having some sinus issues lately and asked for recommendations and the woman up front called the acupuncturist and let me speak to him directly. He even offered to give me his number so I could text him with questions. I highly recommend any service they offer here. More...

Perfect place for an infrared spa break. Appreciated the warmth and quiet intimacy of the lobby as a transition from the bustle (and cold) sidewalk outside. The sauna was warmed for me while I checked in on the ipad, reassuring me that the time I booked could be taken advantage of in full.The sauna room was impeccably clean with towels already laid out within the sauna itself and more available post-shower, slippers were available (though I'd brought my own out of habit). I appreciated the brief introduction to adjusting the temperature controls and the full array of toiletries provided alongside plenty of drinking water and a great hair dryer. With a lockable door and inviting lighting, having a little sanctuary absorbing all that heat for only thirty minutes, upon leaving it felt like the equivalent of a full day out of the office!

It's great for relaxation of the body and mind. Definitely recommend for those wanting to be more healthy this year. Doing one session a week after your week of working out makes it a great recovery tool!!!

Barbara was amazing, so helpful & just a lovely spirit. Answered all of my (ridiculous) questions & made me feel so calm & comfortable. The facility is beautiful -- such a great vibe & aesthetically perfect. Every detail has been thought of from walking in the door to the float itself. Loved everything. I thought the float would be scary or claustrophobic, but it's not AT ALL, at least not how Floating Lotus has set it up. It's literally genius & just feels like you're getting into bed for the perfect rest, except in a pool of warm, floaty water. First, you enter into a "changing" room, equipped with anything you may need -- qtips, lotion, etc. they've thought of it. You put your ear plugs in & take a shower, in such a beautifully designed stone shower with a PERFECT shower head, you never want to get out lol. They give you towels, shampoo, conditioner, & body wash. Now, you already have your ear plugs in, so you've gotten used to the sound piece. The lights in the changing room are on a motion sensor. You step into the pod to float & there is another light in there that you control. You can leave it on or turn it off at your leisure once you feel all cozy resting on your headpiece. So you flip that off like a night stand light then as you're laying with your eyes closed, the motion sensor light goes off. So you gradually & gracefully go into darkness. It's not like you're plunged into darkness / zero sound and have to get used to it. This to me was the biggest deal and the most well thought out part. THIS is what made it not terrifying. No one shuts you into a tank, into the sound proof total darkness and leaves you for an hour while you breathe through a pounding heart & anxiety ridden body attempting to get used to it & convince yourself yes, this was a good idea! NO. Quite the opposite in fact. A lovely soul gives you a tour, explains everything, & then you gradually slip into zero sound, zero light, & zero gravity, and float like it's the most natural thing to do ... and then you get to shower again after :)))And the next day What chronic pain? It was the first time in 10 years I stepped out of bed without wincing. I can't say I was cured, but I can say the difference was extreme. I felt it in my day to day & in my yoga practice. The difference in my spine was amazing, as well as other areas I experience pain from prior injuries. So, whether you want to relax or you're going for chronic pain, I highly recommend. I've never experienced anything like it and will certainly return. ONLY to Floating Lotus though!! (Hope this review helped you!) More...

I have tried a few places for flotation therapy in Manhattan and this is by far the best. The room is private and very quiet,. The shower is modern and clean. The tub is spacious and the neck pillow is comfortable. All amenities are provided and there is no rushing after the service. Reception is friendly and everything is fully explained before the float. Very relaxing! More...

Reiki This review is for Reiki only: I had just one session with Flor - and she is absolutely wonderful! I felt immediate results and am very happy that I got to meet Flor. If you are looking for a good Reiki - go ahead and schedule your appointment! BTW this place is like an oasis of calm in the chaos of NYC and the receptionist is very friendly and will help you to schedule your appointment with great professionalism! More...

I found Floating Lotus through a Living Social deal and I will definitely be returning! I was looking for a a float spa in the city and this one was highly rated. The space is really nice and clean and the floating room itself is gorgeous. The staff were very helpful and thorough guiding me through the process of how the float session works, and after my session when I wanted tour of the space, the staff was glad to show me around. Plus, for first time clients, you are eligible for more AMAZING discounts on future services! I wound up purchasing 3 more float sessions with significant savings! This is an excellent demonstration of customer service and a great way to keep people coming back for regular self-care. I'm glad I found my floating spa! More...

There are not many places in New York City that allow you to escape from the craziness of New York City. I walked into floating Lotus and was greeted by an incredibly welcoming staff. The space is calming, clean, and creatively designed. I showed up to float for the first time (a gift from a friend) and it was exactly what I needed to relax and de-stress. I immediately purchased another one for a future date because I was so impressed with Floating Lotus. The staff was so nice and they were just good down to earth people. They were all available and patient. Answered all of my questions.  Made me feel welcome and comfortable. I'm definitely going back multiple times. And I look forward to it. More...

I have been taking Floating Lotus's yoga classes for about 30 days now and really enjoy it.  Everyone is very friendly and it's a great yoga community. The studio space hold about 10 people comfortably and there is a glass ceiling so you can enjoy the views of NYC skyscrapers during shavasana. The entrance has a cute lounge area and self-serving teas. Overall it's a great space and I would recommend it! More...

I have been floating for over 15 years and I really enjoyed finding this gem!  The staff was so friendly and welcoming it started my experience off on a great note.  The room has a nice vanity with everything you will need is there (water, towels, ear plugs, etc.) . The shower is super clean with shampoo, shower gel and conditioner.  The float rooms have plenty of space (not a pod, but an actual room with a door you can close or leave open).  When I was done I was offered tea (I chose, Lazy Daze as it matched my relaxed mood after a wonderful float).  I chatted with the staff members while drinking my tea and had some good laughs.  They offered a special price for my next three floats and I grabbed the opportunity.  This will be my new relax location!

I love this place.  I have been only once-Used a Groupon for a microdermabrasion.  Fantastic experience overall.  I was expecting a 'normal' NY midtown environment and was happily surprised to enter an oasis!  Such a delightful respite from the summer grit of NYC.  I have been to many 'spas' as the term is very loosely applied these days, but FLOATING LOTUS is true to the name.  Calm, pretty and staffed with friendly, helpful and talented staff.  I bought a 3 pack and will be trying deep cleansing and the tank many people rave about.Another thing!  No PUSHING product by shaming one into thinking they're not taking care of their skin.  Thank you Natalya and the rest!

Floating Lotus has one of the best Beginners Yoga Classes around. Before I took Aliza's beginner class here, I was dead set against yoga. She changed my perspective and its really changed my life. The studio itself is also lovely- so sooo nice to see the sky as you flow. I was THRILLED to see Aliza on the schedule for the power flow class- this was a great progression and advance from her beginner's class. I only rated one less star because I wished they offered more classes and sometimes the rush hour classes are full to the brim, but it doesn't keep me away when my fave teacher is around! #worthit More...

I had such a great experience with the facial that right after it ended I bought another 2 facials for future use.  The staff and friendly and very knowledgeable! !! Aside from the deep facial, I took yoga in the plan and just started again.  Each class is very unique based on the instructor but they have all been good experiences.  Floating Lotus is truly a gem hidden in the concrete jungle.

My favorite place to get a facial! I got their Groupon promotion for 2 deep cleansing facials. I read the reviews and wanted to book a session with Natalia because everyone was raving about her. And I have to agree!! Natalia is so sweet and so knowledgeable with everything skincare. She listens to your concerns-- like when I told her my face is oily and I'm concerned about breaking out after a facial again because the last time I did one (at a different spa), I broke out the next day. I felt so refreshed after my facial. I was a little red on the spots that she extracted but the irritation and redness went away after a couple of hours. I came back today and again, she's still amazing!! Their front desk staff are also really friendly. Highly recommended! Thank you, Natalia More...

I tried Floating Lotus for the first time and loved it!  There is calming zen and welcoming vibe as soon as you enter.  I did the Flotation Therapy and it was amazing - I would highly recommend for anyone as a wonderful way to relax and gain a peaceful perspective.  My hour floating went by so quickly and when I was done, I felt more relaxed that I have in months.  It felt like I was waking up from the best nap ever.  I would highly recommend Floating Lotus and I will definitely be back for more floating and to try the Infrared Sauna and Massages.  I have been looking for a spot like Floating Lotus for a long time and it is a huge bonus that it is located in midtown and easy to get to from any where.  I can't wait to book my next visit!  :D More...

I've been going to Floating Lotus for acupuncture with Joel for 2 years now, and first floated there a few months before that. I am so grateful to have a haven like this in the city. It's calm and such a relief to encounter after the craziness of midtown. Joel is an amazing practitioner. He's full of information, creates such a soothing atmosphere, and is so kind. I credit him for a great deal of my peace of mind. The floatations were a great intro to the practice for me, since the rooms aren't nearly as claustrophobic as I'd imagine more common floating pods are. There's no closing lid, just a glass door, with lovely shower facilities adjoining. The staff is very well informed of the details of these services, leaving very little to an anxious imagination. They also know the other services and practitioners super well and can make great recommendations.Thank you always, FloLo! More...

I did the floating meditation for an hour and was hooked ever since. The staff were very attentive and the facility was clean and tranquil. After the session I was very spacey and had to rest a bit before leaving. But my mind was clear and soul was calm. The hour felt super short as I was told people who meditate often find the hour to feel short. I ended up purchasing another session shortly afterI highly recommend flying lotus for floating meditation and all other services they offer. Go check it out. More...

Joel(Acupuncture) and Nadim(PT) took time to listen to my issues and history with injuries and designed the therapy accordingly. An important part of healing is the feeling that you are in good hands; that's the feeling I get here. More...

Love this spot for yoga and the float tank. Best float I've been too - some are noisy which defeats the whole purpose. If you haven't floated yet you should. I always lather my self in the soaps that they have because they make me smell fresh as lettuce. Their yoga classes are great as well. Instructors are very friendly and welcoming. The space is great because they have glass ceilings to see around NYC. This is my spot when I come back to NY More...

I've been twice and the second time you know what works well with your skin. I came on time and I had the microdermabrasion facial done. This time they put an aloe gel which is non-irritating, a disinfectant so that I won't be breaking out and the facialist spent a lot of time on my cheeks which she said had some damaging spots. I would like to have focused on the forehead too because I'm starting to see some wrinkles I never saw a few years ago. Probably because I haven't been wearing broad spectrum sunscreen or hats to the beach. I guess I could get fillers but I prefer the natural look. My facialist recommend I get a chemical peel next time. I'm just starting to dip into microdermabrasion, chemical peels and lasers. It is recommended to have at least half to a dozen more consistently to see results. But I have to say my cheeks do feel soo nice like supple and soft! I highly recommend the facialist I had my second time here! Because she catered to my skin type which is sensitive and prone to break outs. When normal people can thrive in sleeping masks the silicones in the cream will make me break out. That's why I've been only moisturizing with serums. But the aloe gel my facialist used was non-irritating and after a 12 hours I haven't had any break outs  I was nervous about the micro being too abrasive but at this place the tools are very gentle. After she went over my cheeks I don't have any red spots, irritation, or any negatives side effects. I was nervous but after going here I learned there's no need to worry. I'm so happy I found Floating Lotus! More...

I came here for the first time in early May because I had gotten a Groupon for a facial. I wasn't expecting much more than your average experience but then I met Jill! I was about two months away from my wedding and had gotten a couple of facials from various places... still trying to find the right spot. Before coming here my hormonal acne was really bad... I was panicking because I was about to get married and I really wanted to look my best. Jill assured me that my face would be wedding-ready by the end of June. I came for just 4 facials over the course of two months, one was two days before my wedding day. During these facials, Jill did a combination of treatments including UV, which did wonders for my skin. She even gave me her phone number (and checked in on me post-facial) and several tips for everything from vitamins to pre-wedding beauty practices. First, I can't even begin to explain the transformation my skin made in just two short months. I can honestly say my skin was completely clear and glowing on the day of my wedding and it is 100% because of Jill. The most incredible part of all this was that leading up to my most recent appointment I was having severe throat and neck pains. I felt like I was about to be sick on my wedding day. Jill spent over an hour working on me and sent me home with a homemade tea recipe that she said helped with her pre-wedding stress. I felt so relaxed immediately after the facial and decided to make the tea she suggested. By the time I woke up for my wedding day I felt 100% better. I truly believe that between my facial and the tea I was able to heal in time for my wedding day. Jill is hilarious, kind, and genuinely cares about her clients. I cannot say enough good things about her. If you want an incredible facial with a true expert do yourself a favor and go see Jill! More...

My experience at floating lotus was an indulgent atmosphere; that enabled reflection resting on or in water to move freely once out of the space.

So I have gone to floating lotus a few times for facials and microdermabrasion. My first few times was a decent experience nothing too extravagant, however during one of my recent facials I was scheduled with a women named Jill. To say she was god sent to help my face is an understatement. I recently had a baby and my face was a mess. The hormones made me break out everywhere and I had a ton of dark marks from the blackheads and pimples I decided to pick at. As soon as I met Jill she was very nice and accommodating. Throughout the entire facial she was very informative and listened to all my concerns. She even told me not to get microdermabrasion while I have active acne because is spreads the bacteria and causes more breakouts, which made complete sense because when I previously got micros there (not from Jill) the next few days I would break out like crazy.Anyways, since my initial appointment with Jill, I have gone back three more times. I actually look forward to my upcoming appointments because my face has done a 360. Her facials are AMAZING, I actually call it a face massage because it is so relaxing. Even the extractions she makes seem so easy. Since that first facial with HER (a month and a half ago) I have gotten only one pimple!!! She sent me home with and at home regimen and suggested a few facial products for my oily/sensitive skin. She even gave me her email address so if I had any questions or concerns I could contact her. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, professional, relaxing experience with someone who knows what they are doing then most definitely book with Jill. I cannot wait until my next appointment with her because I am well on my way to beautiful skin.I only gave it 4stars because of past experiences and the receptionists are very cold and unwelcoming. However I give JILL 5 STARS!!!! More...

I have a bad back and the instructor couldn't have been more concerned or gentler.  She helped me with the poses and watched to make sure I was in a good position so I wouldn't hurt myself.  It was my first class and I'm not very flexible but I felt very comfortable and welcomed.  It's in a great location, the space is beautiful with a glass ceiling.  It's a lovely experience and I will be going back.  I highly recommend it.

Had a wonderful experience at Floating Lotus !!! I had a deep Cleansing Facial with Ariel. And she was a delight ! Friendly and warm and has a way with her hands. She ask me if I was comfortable and kept asking me if I was ok with what she was doing . She did amazing job ! Ariel gave some good advice on skincare and products .

I absolutely loved my floating session and immediately booked another one before I left. ;-) The facility is beautiful, so clean, and really peaceful, which is so great coming in from the NYC streets. Most of all the staff was amazing! The 2 young ladies were delightful, personable, and able to answer all of my questions. I will be back for sure! More...

Cozy and calming environment, one of my favorite spots to sweat it out in the infrared sauna. The infrared sauna has its own little private room with a shower and sink, I throughly enjoyed the privacy of having my own little space, and the shower head is delightful. But I wish they had better lighting in front of the mirror, since I like to fix myself up after my shower. Also wish it was a tad bit more spacious for me to lay down in the infrared sauna. I'm 5'7, so I'm not crazy tall and I would've like having room to put my legs up. More...

I have to say, after years in New York I've visited lots and lots of SPAs and beauty salons. Well, Floating Lotus is truly one of my favorites. The environment feels warm and welcoming as opposed to the sterile feel of many SPAs. Love the fact that they let you leave your shoes and cost at the entrance. I usually come for facials (deep clean, microdermabrasion etc). The staff is amazing and the girls truly bring your skin back to life! Prices are also really good and competitive for NY standards. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to treat himself/herself. I will definitely keep coming back! More...

I had a great time at Floating lotus. All the staff was very friendly. The beautician take good care of my skin. It was my first microdermabrasion but must say that my brown skin scares look already lighter and the general shape of my face better. It will surely take several sessions but I can see that it is going to work on me. Very good location , just closed to Central Park. highly recommend this spa!!! More...

I've been here a few times for yoga/meditation classes and have always had a positive experience. The yoga room is beautiful, especially with the ceiling. Only part that I'm not a fan of is how small the area where the front desk is located. You have to take off your shoes there, so not only is it a narrow space, but the footwear is all over the place as well. Other than that, I haven't had any problems. However, i haven't tried any of their other services like the sauna, salt cave, and facials. It looks like from other reviews that people have had mixed experiences but unfortunately, I can't comment on that. I did think about getting facials at floating lotus but I might just stick to the classes for now. More...

Been here twice for the infrared sauna.  It's a really clean facility and what a peaceful place.  I love the sauna it is so relaxing and I feel really good afterwards.

I first came here a few months ago for a facial and it was done efficiently and did not make my face worse off than before (a lot of rushed facials usually lead to botched acne that can lead to more scarring, thus worse off than if you didn't get the facial). They really promoted their organic mask and facial products, which was fine--it didn't feel like an overt pitch at least. The face / upper body massage was a nice touch to finish the session. After a week my pores did seem noticeably clearer and without scarring.I then came today for my first yoga class (I almost forgot they had a yoga studio) with Nixa de Bellis. It was challenging but I felt I was in a welcome / non-judgmental environment. That's all that mattered. I like how the instructor emphasized the spiritual part of the practice as opposed to just the physical. It was reassuring to know that she knew many of her students by name (that means she took the time to remember faces, a definite plus). To top it off, the yoga studio is gorgeous: a solarium with minimal natural art. It really felt zen just to be in that room.In terms of the decor, Floating Lotus really ties in their brand with warm colors and a touch of purple. If the ambience they wanted to create was calm but uplifting with a splash of creativity, they got it right! I also appreciate that they promote and sell local art pieces (that work with the general theme). Its always soul-warming to see business promote local artists.I see Floating Lotus becoming my new place of peace in bustling an chaotic NYC. Check it out for all your beauty, exercise, and relaxing needs!UPDATE 02/18: They started charging for mats :( not cool More...

As a regretfully relocated New Yorker, I was excited for a trip back - and even more excited when my best friend invited me to Floating Lotus. She's a regular & suggested a visit to cope with stress & anxiety. We booked a sauna & salt cave session together. Upon arriving, the front desk receptionist welcomed us, checked us in, & offered us tea. I was delighted when Joel, the founder & owner, came out to greet us! He discussed treatment benefits, expressed genuine happiness seeing my friend back, and gave me a warm welcome. You can just tell Joel sincerely cares about each individual treated and strives to create a relaxing space.A staff member walked us up to the sauna, gave us comfy robes, explained the room, & offered walking us to the salt cave after. Since my friend comes often, we declined as she knew the cave's location. Even with a yoga class outside the sauna, we didn't hear anything and chatted and reveled in the relaxing heat. After, we showered & walked to the salt cave where we laid beside each other, listened to soft music, & enjoyed each other's company. There's a remote so we could control light & heat when we got hot. At the end, the same staff member greeted us at the door to walk us to shower, but we declined (liking our salty, wavy beach hair!). She walked us to check out. As some reviews stated, the cave isn't very big. For me, its the perfect size to sense the pure air. Due to the cave & bed size, they usually recommend 1 at a time, but were so accomodating with our request to do it together. If you do book for 2 people, I suggest it be with your partner or close friend as the cave is very intimate. The sauna, shower, & salt cave were very clean. The shower had all the luxury essentials to clean yourself up. The whole space has a relaxing, oasis-like aura & feel. The change in our moods was amazing. My friend & I began with ranting about work & stress. By the end, we simply daydreamed aloud or enjoyed each other's silent company. After we left, I felt calmer, less anxious, and was breathing easier. That night, I seriously had the best sleep in my life. I couldn't be more happy with my experience. My friend and I are already planning a 2 person float & salt cave session next time I'm in NYC. I can't wait! More...

A very zen, beautiful, clean and calm environment in midtown. Surprisingly you won't hear any of the noise outside in this penthouse spa. Upon my arrival i was greeted and asked to take off my shoes as i did so. i arrived early and luckily i was able to start my appointment early.i booked the infrared salt cave on groupon for $35, where i got to sit in the room for 30 minutes. It was a pleasant but short experience. time flies when you're relaxing! upon my exit i showed them my free yelp check in offer and was given the option of a freebie. i chose the moisturizer which smells AMAZING! i cannot wait to use it this cold cold winter. To close this review i would like to highlight to extremely sweet staff that work there! More...

Lauren (the instructor) was super nice and funny i have never met any instructor that can make Yoga this fun and professional/spiritual in the same time. She also cares about the students and would spend extra time after class to talk and give advice on practice.Not to mention how beautiful this studio is! Glass ceiling so that you can see the reflection of yourself while you do your yoga flows. Mirror on the ceiling! (Gaga song if you know what im talking about) More...

12 November 2017

I had gotten into a bicycle accident and fractured my skull in August. I had such severe headaches, light and noise sensitivity that left me feeling debilitated for weeks. I was in physical therapy/rehab 4 days a week in addition to my numerous doctors appointments which made my symptoms come back with a vengeance,I then came across a gilt group deal for flotation therapy and decided to give it a try. It was a good thing that I was a stranger things fan because i would have never tried it had I not seen it. the flotation itself was crazy weird, but i have to say it was he only thing that abated my debilitating symptoms (lasted for 2 days). They provide you with all the toiletries you'd need in the flotation room. My only gripe about the place is that it gets REAL hot and humid in the room while blowdrying hair. But I could just be a sweaty girl. :) More...

Sometimes I think that I should just be selfish and keep this place to myself!  Yup, it's THAT great, and I am very picky.  What's really amazing is that it is only two blocks away from where I live and yet I never knew about it until I saw it on Groupon.  I bought the Groupon deal for 30 days of yoga and, unlike many places that treat Groupon customers like second-class citizens, I was welcomed warmly. There are only a few yoga classes offered each day, but the instructors are all topnotch and really nice too.  I have practiced yoga for the past nine years and have gone to many different yoga studios in the city.  None have the beauty or charm of this studio, which is small but cozy and warm, with a glass skylight roof that adds to the ambience.  Best yet, they don't charge you for a loaner yoga mat in the event that you forgot YOUR mat, which is something I also appreciate.  In addition to offering yoga, Floating Lotus also offers facials, massages, laser hair removal, acupuncture and two flotation rooms.  When you come for the first time, you are offered a deal to purchase whatever the monthly specials are (three or four different spa services, offered at a substantially reduced price).  The place is immaculately maintained and the reception staff are all very nice.

I wanted to write this review (my first) to tell some future floaters about my positive experience with float therapy. I came to Yelp before going and read the negative reviews and I will say that the thoughts and concerns stayed with me through my entire float- to a point that was so distracting I don't think I was fully able to enjoy myself. So here we go! a great experience at Floating Lotus!Warmly received and greeted by the staff, filled out paperwork and escorted to my room where I was briefed on the logistics. The space was CLEAN- towels were neatly folded, q-tips and other toiletries were full. I was made to feel this was my personal experience by the employee who escorted me over. Sometimes it can feel like you are being read a script when you're given the run through of these sort of things. The actual float experience was a trip and I don't think my own personal experience of it needs to be included in the review of the facility... but, whoa.. super cool and I've already gone ahead and booked another session to enjoy further now knowing what I'm in for (physically and mentally). When I left, I wasn't rushed through the check out process. I was asked if I had any questions, they wanted to know about my experience and we ended up chatting for like 20 minutes. Why I'm giving 5 stars:It was an all around good experience. I didn't feel any issue I had was worth a full star deduction. My one wish was that there would be a hair dryer in the room as I remembered reading but can imagine the sound might be disruptive to other sessions. Regardless, if the hair dryer was supposed to be included and just forgotten from my room for whatever reason, I didn't feel it was work a FULL star deduction for something so small as that. It seemed harsh to leave 4 stars without being able to identify real issues I had with the place. Am I blown away? I mean... kind of..It was cool and clean, what more can I ask for? More...

It was my first time doing a float session and I was definitely not disappointed. The ambience is what you would expect, calming. Chelsea at the front desk was immediately friendly and gave me the full explanation of what to expect when I told her it was my first time. They certainly hire the right people to do the job. She was awesome! Once in the room, I spent my hour in complete sensory deprivation. It is hard to describe but my advice would be not to go in with expectations. Also, try to keep your eyes open long enough to forget your eyes are open (it is completely dark). Overall an excellent experience and one that I would recommend. More...

The facility is beautiful and relaxing with a spiritually peaceful vibe. The room in which I received my facial was dimly lit with a candle burning and clouds painted on the ceiling. Jade, who was my clinician, was kind, gentle, and meticulous. The bed I laid in was so comfortable and a soft blanket was provided. The treatment was amazing and lasted the full hour. I could feel the city pollution being washed away with each step of the treatment. The face and shoulder massage was very relaxing. More...

I came to Floating Lotus while searching for a place in the city to do Reiki energy work at. When I walked out of the elevator and looked off to the left at the waiting/reading area I knew this was a place I could see myself working. The whole vibe emanates healing. Long story short I didn't end up working there, but  I did end up booking a floating session with a dear friend of mine who also does healing work. I loved the space so much I brought my partner with me the second time and we met the owner/operators of Floating Lotus. They are super sweet and have a wonderful energy about them. The floating tanks are beautiful, and top-notch and we really loved our sessions. The whole space is gorgeous, from the salt cave to the sauna to the yoga/meditation room to the waiting room to the reiki/acupuncture/facial rooms. All the staff are really friendly and very helpful.

What a serene space. You enter a private room with hair and body products, towels, a rain shower and the rectangular like tub. You first shower to remove any lotions, etc and then you enter the adjacent pod which feels like a grotto.  The lights in the room are off and a gentle green light is on in the grotto like space. Once you settle in and float, you can shut the light so you're completely in the dark which I recommend. Between the dark and the earplugs which you put in before showering, your left in a warm womb like space and you just breathe and float letting thoughts flow in and out of you.  I left feeling relaxed in mind and body. I look forward to another session. More...

I got a deal off Groupon and used it the first time. I loved Natalia, she was so nice and gentle. The reason I couldn't give five stars because 1. They have the offer on yelp if you checked in, you get 30 mins sauna, but the front desk said it not available, and 2. Both of my appointments, I had to wait 20 minutes after my appointment time. The technician is superb! I'd recommend Natalia if you want a good facial with a super nice and sweet person. The front desk people arent warming, but if you don't mind that, it's good. Just come in, sit down and wait while listening to calming music. More...

We had a beautiful time. Everyone was lovely and accommodating, especially Alexis. We were a little late due to streets being closed but she did her best to give us the full experience. Do note that if you are late, it does take away from your float time, however we got lucky. This was my first time floating and my experience was interesting, it took me a while to shake off the day to day hustle and bustle but once I got into a zone I felt transported. Sipping tea on the rooftop complimented the post float nicely. Total contrast. We ended our visit upstairs in the Himalayan Salt cave for half hour and then we continued detoxing another half hour, sweating it out with a sauna session. Thank you Floating Lotus we look forward to floating again! More...

I came here a few weeks ago for a meditation for manifesting & celebration of the Chinese New Year. Upon entering the penthouse floor, I stepped off the elevator walked into complete Zen. Prior to heading up to the meditation room, I was greeted by someone with burning white sage, to clean my energy (from head to toe). The meditation room was very peaceful, with a glass ceiling (you can see the stars & the moon- it was beautiful). The facilitator (Sarah) was wonderful. It was a peaceful, enlightening experience. I would love to come back for another class and maybe a spa service. They have vinyasa yoga classes, as well as mindfulness meditation, and special event workshops. It is pretty pricey ($200 for a reiki session). I might try a facial or a massage. I would highly recommend this place, and I will most definitely return. More...

Nikki was great! She took the time to explain the microdermabrasion procedure since it was my first time. I didn't feel any pain at all. It was absolutely relaxing and my face feels a lot cleaner afterwards. I highly recommend Nikki and I will be going back again! More...

Great clean cozy spot! Booked a microdermabrasion with Nikki and she was very thorough and good with my micro. Straight to the point. Whole experience was very relaxing, the atmosphere was calming. It took 30 min exact. You have to take your shoes off when you get there which I guess is ok bc they do have house slippers. So if you want to be in and out no small talk or anything this is the place, especially during a lunch break . Looking forward to going back soon More...

I started out at the Floting Lotus about a month and a half ago. I started the sensory deprivation tank. It quickened my healing time on my injury in my lower back. I hadn't been able to sit, stand or walk for 4 months. I started to get the sessions twice a week. They worked out a great deal with me to help me through this challenging and painful time. There were many benefits that I felt. First I had an hour of complete meditation and relaxation. Helped ease my anxiety and made me feel less hopeless about my medical situation of being temporarily partially paralyzed. I also noticed within 3 weeks, going twice a week that the speed of the injury  recovery was so much faster. After each session I'd feel a tad sore because the treatments softened my muscles and there are some benefits neurologicaly as well. I can walk and sit again at ease..I'm standing better but continuing with my sessions now going once a week. I have started going to the gym again. My physical therapy said this was great and at this point I hardly needed it. I can't explain how I feel about having this help me and give me my life back. At the time that I started this therapy all others forms only caused pain. I tried everything.  The sensory deprivation tank sped my recovery time up so much. I noticed a huge difference by the 2nd week. Jackie really helped me create a feasible budget and this may have saved me.  This was a great experience for me.. Thanks Floting Lotus for helping me heal a horrendous debilitating injury without having to go through with surgery.             Thank you,             Anna Magdalena h. More...

A wonderful, exceptional, relaxing experience.Front desk and practitioners are friendly, attentive, welcoming. Atmosphere and space is calming, clean and inviting. Services are top notch (I did the float, yoga class and reiki). *Yoga class cannot be beat, the location is beautiful, a skylight opens up to an expansive, relaxing view. I recommend this beautiful and convenient location for anyone who seeks relaxation and wellness. More...

Great place! I went for microdermabrasion treatment, my first one ever, and it was better than I expected. What I liked most though was the attentiveness and warmth of the staff. Customer service means a great deal to me and they exceeded my expectations. More...

My boyfriend loves anything that relates to meditation, so for his birthday, I took him here for a floating therapy. The reservations do get booked up quickly, so I would recommend making a reservation at least a week in advance. This is my first time floating so this review is more about my actual floating experience and less about the facility. The receptionist took us to our room. The room has a counter for you to get ready, a shower for you to rinse your body before and after the float, and the actual floating room with just a tub of water. You don't need to bring anything unless you want to change to a different outfit after. You also have to option to wear bathing suit or stay naked in the tub. The facility is really clean. The receptionist gave us a brief explanation of the buttons within the room (light switch, intercom that connects to the front desk, and this other thing that idk what it was), but I was too curious about the room so I didn't absorb a lot of the information. First 5 minutes of floating, I couldn't settle down. I kept looking around and wondering what's going on. Could not relax. Stepped out and got a floating pillow Bc I kept consciously lifting my head up. After I got the pillow, I decided to turn off the light. I was nervous about being in complete darkness, but I also know that keeping the lights on will prevent me from actually relaxing. Within the next 10 minutes, I was able to relax my neck and let my head sink. After a little while I got anxious and wanted to turn the light back on. But while I was floating, my position shifted, and the light switch was no longer on my right! I freaked out for a bit Bc it's pitch black in there, and I was nervous that I'd slip and hit my head trying to get out.Once I found the button, I kept the lights on for another 15 mins before turning it off. The second time I turned off the light, I was able to relax more and became less anxious until I heard these door knocking noise and thought someone knocked on my door. The someone was vacuuming outside and walking back and forth. I felt like I could hear everything outside towards the end of the session. So I left the tub before times up (they'd let you know that your 60 mins is up by turning all the lights on). When I left, I wouldn't say I feel relaxed as I was disturbed. Overall, I like the facility as it's clean. The temperature of the water got cooler as time goes by, maybe you should ask how to keep up the temperature. I also wish the water could be deeper so I can float more. Meditation isn't really my thing, so idk if I'd come back. More...

I friend recommended coming here for a facial. I was in luck because they had a Groupon for the deep cleansing facial so it felt like a steal. When you arrive you take your shoes off and they have an area for coats. In the waiting area you can pick out a tea and relax. In the room they had a wrap to wear and then you can get settled on the bed under the blanket.My aesthetician was Nikki and she was super sweet and informative. We did a brief consultation to discuss my concerns and have her evaluate my skin before starting. I liked that she gave me an overview before we started and reviewed what we did at the end, so during the facial I was able to just unwind and relax, I almost fell asleep. She was very gentle with the extractions and my skin has been glowing all day, no blotches at all! Nikki was just great and gave me some pointers to help take care of my skin moving forward, she recommended some products but was not at all pushy or trying to sell me. I would definitely recommend scheduling with her!Front desk was a little awkward at check out with multiple people at the desk and I also didn't realize they wanted me to give her the tip right then (they had envelopes for cash tips so I thought they had an area to drop it off in). Overall: clean, relaxing, great price especially for NYC and I'm so happy with my results. More...

I first came to Floating Lotus on a whim after seeing a special on Groupon for a facial at what looked like a really cool space, and am so glad I did. I've been coming here regularly for about 6 months. My skin has calmed down in the last year or so, but I have a history of bad breakouts and have had a lot of facials. Angel is so amazing. The facials here are really top notch, and a great value for the price. The overall service itself is very thorough, and unlike some salons really includes everything up front - no need to add on a bunch of separate services to get a really complete facial. The treatment rooms are really relaxing, and the space itself is clean, bright, and relaxing.I agree with other reviews that the salt therapy room is small and not very worth the price. You don't have anywhere to change and so I ended up partially disrobing once I was inside which was also weird and a bit cramped. More...

I had an amazing first experience with acupuncture and cupping. Joel is absolutely incredible at his craft and has such a positive energy. You can tell he truly cares about his clients and the help he provides. Additionally, ALL of the Floating Lotus staff made us feel welcome and at home. More...

Came here last night for a deep cleansing facial and was pleasantly surprised.  The place was very relaxing and immediately coming in, they had me take off my shoes so it seemed more homey. I had the facial with Angel.  They actually called and emailed me prior about possibly rescheduling due to an anniversary party after and they were worried that it would be somewhat loud and would disturb my session.  I declined because I figured I could stop by the party afterward and the noise to prep wouldn't really disturb me.  The session was quite nice - Angel was very easy to talk to and addressed some of my concerns (dry skin now that it's cold).  There was also this thing at the end where she pretty much zapped my entire face to bring the serum up.  She explained it to me but honestly, I'm still not quite sure.  It was the only thing in the session where it was more on the uncomfortable side since I just felt random parts on my face being zapped.  It wasn't painful just uncomfortable.At the end, I didn't end up going to the party because it was still quite early and the space was quite small for how many they were expecting (400-500).  I would definitely like to come back again.  They seem to have a lot of nice other services that they offer that I would like to try.

Situated in the penthouse atop of 39 W. 56th Street in NYC is Floating Lotus. Here you can experience yoga, a salt cave, reiki, a floatation tank, acupuncture, massage, infrared sauna and more. It's like a one stop shop for all your holistic needs.I signed up for a yoga class and a 30-minute session in the salt cave. I was excited for both and knew that I was going to experience some Zen that day - and that I did!Both the Yoga studio and the salt cave are situated upstairs.  Yoga is held in an atrium-type room with skylights overhead. The scenery is spectacular with views of skyscrapers and sky. Lots of sky. It is indeed beautiful. The rooftop studio has been dubbed, "One of the most blissful places to practice," and I do agree. Our instructor, Tiana taught a flow type Vinyasa class. Her initial movements were very circular which helped us warm up and generate heat in the body. Some of the poses I tried during class felt like they required less effort which I attributed to Tiana's prerequisite warm-up and breathing exercises. She stressed that we should move at our own pace but at the same time encouraged and motivated us. It worked, because I was closer to mastering some poses that I struggled with in the past - thank you Tiana!Next the salt cave -The combination of yoga followed by the salt cave is a winning duo. The yoga class leaves you feeling totally relaxed, which in my opinion helps you reap the benefits of the salt experience even faster.I love heat and I love saunas, so I was very excited about experiencing the salt cave. This particular salt cave uses infrared light, which in combination with the Himalayan salt, helps the body detox faster.  Studies have shown that when people inhale this type of salt air, it can help stimulate the natural ability of the respiratory system and can reduce inflammation, fight infection, clear blockages and discomfort. The walls of the salt cave are lined with what looks like shimmery bricks. In actuality these bricks are made of Himalayan salt and have a beautiful pink/orange hue. The appearance is mesmerizing as you lie there and wonder how the structure is actually salt.The combination of the infrared heat, the Himalayan salt and Himalayan music that is playing nearby soothes you into a deep sense of relaxation. Eventually, you become completely immersed in the serenity of this beautiful ancient healing therapy. Check out this review on Sisters Visit at sistersvisit.info More...

I did a vinyasa class here early morning and the facility is just amazing, Jackie and the rest of the staff are very friendly and helpful. As soon as you walk in you need to take off your shoes, making this a great experience overall. Would recommend to anyone interested in the services they offer here =) More...

I did my first facial microdermabrasion yesterday and my schedule got messed up because I waited longer for my dental appointment than scheduled. I called them a couple of times to change the schedule and it was easy and fuzz-free. When I got there, the first thing I notice was how calming the ambiance was. My therapist was Natalia. She's very informative, friendly and she knew what she was doing.I left with a big smile on my face. I'll definitely come back for another treatment. Thank you! More...

This was my first experience with both acupuncture and reiki, not only did I not know what to expect, but had high expectations. Those expectations were absolutely met. Both Joel and Jackie were wonderful, calming and explained everything as we went through the process. Jackie was incredibly patient and warm, I would recommend her and Floating Lotus to anyone looking for a relaxing hour and an overall peaceful experience. I am looking forward to going back. More...
