Beginner's Guide to Floating
The idea behind float therapy is that the body is fully relaxed and removed from external noises or distractions. You will be floating in 500 kilograms of Epsom salt and water, which keeps you a float while lying on your back. The water is maintained at 35 degrees Celcius. The water temperature 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 are in total darkness. During your float, the outside world is gone and amazing things start to 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 think deeply without distraction, your brainwaves slow down and your body gets to rest and reduce anxiety and stress. It’s likely to be the most relaxing thing you’ve ever experienced.
Going Into The Float:
Don’t drink caffeine before and remove contacts. Eat a small meal 1-2 hours prior. Don’t shave or wax before. Arrive and check-in. You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. We’ll cover the basics together and answer your questions. Chat with us for a bit if you’d like, and float on. Put in earplugs, then shower and step into the float tank, close the door behind you and float. After an hour, the music fades in, easing you out of your float. Turn on the lights and step out when you’re ready. Rinse off the saltwater. Get dressed, and bask in your post-float glow.
