About
SOULEX float spa, DC's first flotation and sensory deprivation wellness center, offers natural, holistic healing for the mind, body, and soul. Our pods/pool are built with the highest standards of safety and sanitation in mind and meticulously cared for so that you can relax in meditative quietness with a clear, calm mind. Floating is a powerful stress-relief and wellness tool. It takes place in a shallow, sensory-free pool of water, heated to body temperature and saturated with 1500 pounds of pharmaceutical grade Epsom salt and Deadsea salt. This enables the body to float effortlessly.

Overall I enjoyed the float experience. Garage parking is available directly across for street. However, I would not recommend this location due to dishonest practices. I booked my visit directly with the owner (Pedramin). I requested two rooms, one for myself and a friend. During the booking call, I requested the ability to play a customized playlist during my float. Unfortunately, upon arrival, my pod was not functional. I asked to switch rooms, but the staff could not accommodate me, stating customers with a subscription receive room preference. My float consisted of 90 minutes of thunder; it was not as relaxing as I hoped. Following my session, I requested to contact the owner. The owner has yet to return my call or respond to my email. Staff should only allow booking if the room and amenities are not fully functional. This was a bait-and-switch experience. I suggest researching other locations.

My girlfriend and I had our first float session today. We each had separate pods. I can’t say enough about the spa and the people. The experience was phenomenal. So relaxing. I look forward to my next visit. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

These days’ meditation and reflection have both been a major part of my life. After my 2nd lay off during covid – I thought I would try something different. I was nervous but looking to connect with myself and take my meditation, reflection and healing to another level. In my search for meditation and spa services I found SoulEx DC. I went to their website, and it was easy to navigate which I love! They even have a 1st time float special! I was looking to treat myself and discount and reflect – and thought why not.

When I walked in – I was greeted by the owner and asked to wash my hands at a portable sink or use hand sanitizer. After that, I was taken to my Spa Room, where I was going to float for 1 whole hour. A little nervous but also excited. The SouldEx Employee walked me through the service and amenities in the room. What I loved most was that there were individual showers in each Spa Room. The depravation tank which is actually like a cocoon fills up rather quick under 10 minutes which is just enough time for you to get ready to enter. I had a lite music playlist play during my float which only added to the total relaxation I was experiencing.
When people ask me to describe it – It is warm and cozy. There is more than enough room to stretch out. I opted to fold my arms like an “X” on my chest which in my opinion only added to my reflection and meditation. I went with the flow during my experience and just let my body completely relax into the experience. This was the best experience I have had in 2020 – I was able to completely detach from the world.

I plan to add this into my monthly – or bi-monthly self-care routine.

The atmosphere, the energy, the intention.... it was a magical experience. Although I arrived with a bit of fear of what sensory deprivation is like, it didn’t last long.
I was fortunate enough to have been greeted and escorted through to my private room by the founder, Pedramin. She had a peaceful and safe energy about her. With a safe, clean, modern, cozy space.... the rest was up to me!
I closed the lid of my SD tank all the way and was greeted by the healing sounds of dolphins (you get to choose!) and with faint lights inside. After some time the lights and sounds go off.
Hang with the darkness!
You can do it!
Once the fear leaves you can really go deep.
I will absolutely go back again and again. I can’t say enough about this experience.

I had some free time, and I was in the neighborhood, so I booked an appointment for an hour float. I couldn't believe how fast the hour went by, and the experience was truly relaxing. Would definitely do this again.

I’ve floated once before many years ago but thought I’d give it a try to cure some aches and pains in my feet and also some stress at work.

I paid $100 for an hour introductory offer and booked for a slot the same evening.

The facility was spotlessly clean, the rooms spacious and well equipped. The float tank was very high tech and near perfect save for the sliver of light the lid let in and the gentle hum of the pump. Total darkness and silence would be best.

Once the lights go out and you are “freed” inside you own consciousness you will feel very different. Time goes quickly when you float and the hour will zoom by, as will your thoughts.

This was a very good experience for me and highly recommended for anyone who wants to try a float. I came away mentally and physically refreshed and I would come back here again as the facilities and care were excellent.

My husband and I had some extra time in DC while there for a conference so we decided to try this float spa -- a new experience for both of us. We each had our own tank and we both enjoyed the experience immensely! Not only was it very relaxing mentally but we left the spa without the aches & pains we walked in with. Can't wait to do this again!

I went to Soulex DC for a float. I made my reservation online with ease. I had been to another facility and was very pleased so I thought it would be hard to beat. Soulex blew it out of the water! Every little detail was perfection. The staff was very welcoming, the space was absolutely gorgeous, and I wish I could go here every week. I choose the open room for my float, received a full orientation to the room, spa, and all amenities. Each room has a private shower, robes, towels, etc. I LOVED this place and will be making my next reservation ASAP!

This spa is new and it appears to be very well run and very clean. A staff member (Brian) was extremely professional and explained the entire process. This was my first time at SOULEX but not my first "float". The pod was fine for me (I'm 5'9") but I can see where a larger person may not have a positive float experience in a pod of this size. I'm returning to DC in a few weeks and I intend to book another session.
