First Time Floating


What to Expect When you Float

We want to use the term expectation lightly here. When you float, especially for the first time, we want you to try to have as little expectations as possible. Each and every float is different and when you have certain expectations, you aren’t getting the full benefits. You aren’t allowing yourself to surrender to whatever your body needs on that day. Try to come with an open mind and a willingness to let go, and relax. That being said, here is a preview of what you can expect when you arrive at our space and how it all works!

** We will provide everything you need to float, just bring a contact case if you wear them and an open mind**

When you arrive you will watch a short orientation video and choose your music preference. Then as long as you have filled out the waiver that was sent to you via email, you will be directed to our pre/post float lounge. This is a safe space to decompress from your day, kick up your feet, and enjoy some complimentary tea. You will chill here for a bit while we make sure your room is perfect for you. Before your first float you will be given a tour of our space as well as our float rooms. We will go over some important last minute things and answer any questions you may have from the video.

Before your session begins you will need to insert the ear plugs (if you prefer), shower, and rinse off the body oils and products, appy the vaseline to any cuts or scrapes. Once you are in the float tank you will have complete control of the sound and lights, or lack there of. An intro track will play at the beginning and again when your session has ended. You can choose to keep the music on for the entire duration of your float or turn it off at any time.  If you fall asleep, great! that means you were relaxed, and honestly we expect it. The pump will kick on 5 mins after your float, and will gently wake you up by the movement of water.

After your session ends and you have a quick shower, you will have access to our fully equipped vanity area. Feel free to take your time getting ready and stay in our lounge after your float for as long as you like.  Sign our guest book and chat with others. Since we are a new business we also would LOVE if you gave us a positive review on Facebook and Google, only if you had a positive experience of course.

Lastly…you can expect to enjoy the “post-float glow” long after you leave. Be mindful of how you feel for the rest of the day because often the most profound benefits to floating are felt hours later. Happy Floating!!


Preparing For Your Float


So, you’ve made an appointment and are preparing to come in for your first float…yay!! But now what? What do you do? What do you bring? All that we ask you to bring is an open mind and yourself.

Here are some helpful tips to ensure you get the most out of your floats:

​ Show up a at least 20 minutes early for your first float, or as early as you like thereafter. You will receive an introduction to floating and have time to hangout in our lounge before your session. Sign our guestbook, relax and enjoy some complimentary tea.

Have a small meal an hour or two before your appointment, nothing too heavy.

We recommend floating nude. You will have an entirely private room with a shower but of course we want you to do whatever you feel comfortable with.

Avoid caffeine for roughly four hours before your float. If you need your coffee to get going in the morning…we feel you, just try to limit it to one cup.

If you wear contacts, you will want to remove them before your float. Please bring lens solution, a case, and anything else you might need.

Unfortunately we have a strict "no hair color" policy. Hair dye is a float tank's worst enemy, and the solution has a very high chance of ruining your fresh hair. We are only concerned with dark and brightly colored hair (blonde is fine), but some semi-permanent hair-dye loves to run for up to 6 weeks. A good rule of thumb is once your hair stops bleeding on your towels at home, you are good to go.

We will provide you with everything you need, including a towel, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, ear plugs, lotion, Q-tips, Moroccan oil, and hairdryers.

It’s a good idea to avoid shaving for at least 6 hours beforehand, however shaving your face is usually not a problem. We also advise not to float with any open wounds as the Epsom salt can have an irritating effect on the skin.

Feel free to explore different positions, and utilize the float props. The halo behind your head is amazing for helping the neck muscles relax, and arms over your head is a little slice of heaven.
