What to Expect
You will spend around one hour lying quietly in the dark, suspended in a warm solution of Epsom salt, about 10” deep, which is so dense that you will float on its surface. Gentle music can be played to help you relax. In this gravity- and sensory-free environment you will experience complete mental and physical relaxation.
What to Bring
Just an open mind! We will provide everything else: towels, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, ear plugs and a hairdryer. There is no need to bring a bathing suit, as your environment will be private, and the sensation of the suit against your skin may be distracting.
- Eat a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes before your appointment.
- Do not drink caffeine for several hours beforehand.
- Avoid shaving or waxing the day of your float, as the salt water can irritate your skin. If you have small cuts, Vaseline is provided.
- Avoid use of hair and skin products.
- You should shower prior to entering the float room to wash off any oils or chemicals you may have on your hair and body.
- Drying your face with a towel can help avoid touching your face while floating and getting salt water into your eyes. If this does happen, there is a bottle of fresh water in the room you can use to rinse off.
In the pool:
Your breath can be an amazing tool for calming the mind and relaxing the body. Try to slow everything down with some deep, long breaths; once you settle into your experience try not to manipulate the breath and instead just observe it.
There is no “right” way to float, the most important thing is to get comfortable. The two main positions in the pool are with your arms at your side or with your arms overhead, palms facing up. The arms up position is recommended to anyone who has neck or back concerns because it brings the spine further into alignment. Play around with the two to see which feels better for your body. When you are comfortable in your position, try to remain still and relax each body part from head to toe.
In order for your body to fully relax and heal, it’s important to stay hydrated – this is just as true for everyday life as when you’re floating.
Avoid excessive movement in the pool; it will prevent full relaxation and thus the many benefits of floating. Also, the more you move, the more likely you are to get salt water in your eyes and/or mouth. The pool's strong Epsom salt solution has an unpleasant taste and will sting the eyes. If this happens, slowly exit the pool and rinse your mouth and/or eyes in the shower.
After Your Float
For the novice, your first float primarily involves getting your body accustomed to the new environment. Try to take notice of how you feel shortly afterwards and in the days following your float. Most people experience a boost of energy, enhanced awareness, deeper capacity to relax, and improved performance and creativity.
We recommended a course of three to five visits to initially understand the process of flotation and begin to reap its long-term advantages. The benefits are cumulative, which explains why flotation devotees incorporate this therapy into their everyday lives.
