We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your first appointment, allowing time for us to show you how the float tank works, to sign the consent form, turn off your phone, and to use the bathroom.
We provide towels, comb, make up remover, hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Please bring any additional personal care items that you may want to use before / after your float.
We also provide ear plugs. It is your choice if you wear earplugs, as your ears will be under water. Using the ear plugs can help maximize the sensory deprivation aspect of floating and prevent salty water from entering the ear canal. Many people float without earplugs, it’s all your own preference.
If you have any cuts or scrapes we provide A&D Ointment to prevent the cut from stinging. Again, using the A&D is your choice, as the salt water is actually a great antiseptic and can accelerate healing.
After getting undressed and removing any jewelry, it is important to remove any oil from your hair and skin, so we require you to shower.
Prior to floating, you should only use shampoo and body wash. Conditioner is not to be used before floating as the oils can affect the water in the tank.
When entering the tank, you will see three buttons: one for lights, one for sound, and an intercom to communicate with an employee during your session.
When you first enter the tank, you should be careful not to get salt water in your eyes but if you do, there is a dry wash cloth and spray bottle on your right to rinse your eyes.
The light in the shower/dressing area will automatically turn off and your session will begin.
It is common to have trouble completely relaxing at the beginning of your first float. Once you familiarize yourself with the experience and environment a deeper state of relaxation will follow.
When your session is complete, the music will chime and a voice will tell you the session has ended.
After slowly standing, you should carefully step into the shower and use the provided body wash, shampoo, and conditioner.
We recommend thoroughly rinsing including your ears to remove any excess salt.
First Time floater Tips!
-Put the ear plugs in before showering, it helps it get a better seal
-After showering, before you get in the tank, dry your face off. This will prevent you from touching your face with salty hands!
-Don’t expect anything- even if you floated 100 times it will always be different
-If you choose not to wear ear plugs, rinse ears out in the shower afterwards to help remove any salt. Days after your float, you might experience pressure in your ears. To alleviate this pressure, we suggest using ½ water ½ white vinegar mixture to flush.
