calm your mind
meditate with a muse session
While Floating is at the core of our business, Float Sixty offers a dedicated meditation room in our 2,500 square foot facility in addition to our five float suites. Meditation has been scientifically shown to reduce symptoms associated with stress, depression and anxiety as well as improve productivity and quality of life.
- Muse gives you real-time feedback and lets you hear whats happening in your brain as you meditate
- Includes simple exercises that show you exactly what to do to get the most out of your meditation practise
- Challenges, milestones and awards are included to keep you motivated
It motivates you to change your brain
Muse is the first tool in the world that can give you accurate, real-time feedback on what’s happening in your brain while you meditate. It provides motivational challenges and rewards to encourage you to build a regular practice.
It improves how you respond to stress
In the short-term, meditation has been shown to trigger the natural relaxation response – a state of deep rest that changes the physiological and emotional responses to stress. Your metabolism decreases and your hearbeat slows. The muscles relax, breathing becomes slower, and your blood pressure decreases.
Extended use can have amazing and lasting results
A study showed that 20 minutes of meditation for 3 days in a row reduced anxiety, improved mood, and reduced heart rate. Research on longer sessions has documented other benefits, like increased grey matter density, reduced thinning of the prefrontal cortex, decreasing amygdala activity (associated with stress response), and increased resilience – basically, an overall beneficial change of the brain’s structure and function.
It is designed to help you form the habit
Research has shown using an app and starting with 3-5 minutes can dramatically help you build a meditation practice. Muse starts you with 3 minute sessions and rewards you for your achievements, making sure it’s easy and motivating to train with Muse (What are people saying?).

BEFORE, DURING & AFTER MUSE
Muse in the Press
“…the product that offers the most pleasant experience overall is the $299 Muse (choosemuse.com), a sleek headband that rests across your forehead and over your ear”
“Muse made meditation less intimidating.”
“It’s creating a frenzy of excitement…”
“Imagine a gadget that knows your mind…”
“…amazingly effective at helping me to focus and relax quickly.”
“…an EEG device that teaches us non-Buddhists to attain focused serenity”
“He told the Observer that the auditory biofeedback provided by the Muse headset has helped to sell both professional and aspiring golfers he works with on mindful practice”
“For those who need a tech aid, this brain-wave monitor and accompanying app can sense when you are agitated and help you calm down. ”
“As thoughts enter my mind and begin to run amok, the winds pick up, signalling me to come back into the moment and calm my mind. When my mind is very calm, I’m rewarded with more points and the sound of birds tweeting.”
“His current go-to is a brain sensing-headset called Muse which he uses 4-5 times a week. It is designed to aid meditation, detecting electrical activity in the brain, which can then guide a user to a more effective practice.”
“It’s the gift of a sound mind.”
“Using electroencephalography (EEG), which records electrical activity of the brain, Muse “passively detects changes in your brain” using the headband’s seven sensors.”
“After several sessions with Muse, I did feel that I was able to maintain my focus better. I also felt relaxed and clearheaded after each session.”
“The Muse headband is a part of a new group of devices that merge relaxation with wearable technology to make you more aware of your overall being.”
“Muse, however, has been stripped so thoroughly of any hint of mysticism that its parent company refuses to even call it a meditation tool, preferring instead the term “brain fitness.” Just like you do reps at the gym to build your body muscle, it treats practicing focus like doing mental reps for your brain muscle.”
“Despite the chaos in my life, there was no doubt that this little device had made me a calmer person in just two weeks.”
“If this is a journey from Type A to zen, I’ve still only taken a few tentative steps from my starting point. Still, they’re steps I wouldn’t have taken on my own — and for that, i give Muse one big, stress-busting, deep breath of approval.”
“Just three minutes set aside to be completely still each day will leave you feeling refreshed and less stressed.”
“The Muse, formerly an Indiegogo campaign, costs $299 — not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, although that’s still $50 below the bottom-end Apple Watch. But what you get for that money could pay for itself in therapy sessions and mindfulness classes… And that’s the beauty of the Muse – it operates in that space in your life taken up by smartphones, couches and Candy Crush.”
“Wearables and apps that help you relax are a new trend in tech.”
“Normally, we don’t associate technology with meditation — unless we’re using the ancient mindfulness practice to take time away from technology and clear our heads.”
“Sometimes technology distracts, but sometimes it can actually help us focus. The Muse headband aspires to do the latter.”
“A new gadget that’s just hit the market comes closer than ever to reading a person’s mind. It’s not science fiction, but actual science that’s packed into the high-tech headband called Muse.”
“Muse is a very designed product, more Apple store than CVS, a sleek plastic band embedded with seven electroencephalography (EEG) sensors that monitor your brain activity.”
