Floating is about everything that you won't be doing.
You won’t be fighting gravity. The 850 pounds of epsom salt in the water takes care of that while you lie on your back. Pretty cool, right?
The water is kept at 93.5 degrees. This is skin-receptor neutral, which means you lose track of where your body ends and the water begins.
Your ears stay just below the water, and the tanks are insulated against sound. Noise from the outside doesn’t reach you.
After you shut the door and turn off the light, you float in total darkness. During your float the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.
It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in information your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.
Your mind is free to mull things over without distraction, your brain pumps out dopamine and endorphins, and your body gets to rest, de-stress, and heal.
We'll cover the basics together and answer your questions.
Hop in the Shower
Step into the float tank, turn off the lights and prepare to float!
When your time is up, music fades in easing you out of your float.
Turn on the lights and step out
Rinse off the salt water
Get dressed and bask in your post-float glow. Congrats on your first float!
Before You Float
1. Don’t shave or wax before your float – because the salt water solution can irritate your raw skin.
2. If anything, only have a snack in the hour before floating because eating will activate your digestive system and not allow your body to rest
3. Remove your contacts before floating – because this will increase your eye comfort during your float
4. Don’t drink caffeine before floating – because caffeine is a stimulant and this counteracts the process of rest and relaxation
