First Float

Your First Float

What to expect

Prior to your float session:
  • Eat a small meal at least 90 minutes prior to your session
  • Avoid caffeine
  • Do not shave or wax 24 hours prior to your float

Arrive at least 10 minutes early and check-in at the reception desk. We'll review the process with you, answer any questions you have and show you to one of our suites.

Remove contact lenses and put in earplugs to prepare for your pre-float shower. Shower thoroughly and wash hair (approximately 5 minutes).

Carefully step out of the shower and into Float Pod.

Turn off Interior Float Pod Light. Music will play for the first 10 minutes as you settle into your float session.

5 minutes before the end of your float session, music will fade in to gently bring you back.

Turn the interior pod light on when the music stops and be careful exiting the float pod.

Carefully step back into the shower to rinse off salt water and condition hair (approximately 10 minutes).

Get dressed and make your way to the post-float lounge to reflect on your float experience!

FAQs

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Hair brush and deodorant if you wish. Towels, earplugs, and everything else that you might need for your float session are provided.

WHAT IF I’M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating. You are in control... feel free to leave the light on, pod door open, music playing. Ease into the experience if need be.

HOW ARE TANKS KEPT CLEAN?
The salt water is fully filtered and sanitized with UV light between each float to ensure a safe and clean environment.

WHAT IF I DON'T FLOAT?
A very common question, as some people struggle to float in other bodies of water. Rest assured, because of the high density of Epsom salt, you will absolutely float.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely. It can be great to have someone around to talk to about the experience afterwards.

IS FLOATING NEW?
Floating has been around for over 60 years, and has a lot of published research supporting the benefits of floating.
