First, create an account and book your float.
what to know before your float
- Arrive 15 minutes before your float time and check in. All you have to bring is yourself, positive vibes, and an open mind. We provide towels, robes, soap, shampoo, conditioner, earplugs, neck supports, and everything else you will need. Each room is fully private, and you go into the tanks nude, so there’s no need to bring a bathing suit. We'll go over the basics with you and answer any questions you may have. (If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb. Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the tank).
- Apply earplugs, remove makeup, shower (using soap & shampoo only), dry your face, and then step into the tank. Lay back slowly (don't touch your face), and allow yourself to float effortlessly. The music that begins your float will slowly fade out.
- Find a comfortable position and relax. Focus on your breathing and enjoy the weightlessness.
- When your time's up, music will slowly fade in to end your session. When ready, exit the tank. Shower off any excess salt water off your body and get dressed.
- Enjoy your post-float glow! Have some complimentary tea or water with us in our lounge area if you'd like.
We don't recommend shaving or waxing the same day of your float as your skin will sting for a bit from the saltwater.
Avoid drinking coffee or anything else with caffeine 3-4 hours before your float. It tends to make it difficult to relax.
SHOULD I EAT?
We recommend eating 90 minutes before your float, and keep it clean. This will help avoid hearing loud digestive or hunger noises during your float.
If you wear contacts, please bring your case & saline as you will want to remove them prior to your float.
If you've recently dyed your hair and it still washes out in the shower (or leaves traces on towels), you must wait until that stops before you float. The salt solution can strip the product from your hair and also does a number on our float tanks. Depending on the type of dye used, it usually takes 1-2 weeks for the dye to stop coming out. Thank you for waiting to float :).
Floating and fresh tattoos do not mix! Not only could floating with a fresh tattoo be painful (salt + open wounds = ouch) but the epsom salt solution could cause fading or discoloration of your tattoo and permanently ruin its aesthetic appeal. How long you should wait before floating depends on the tattoo and how quickly it heals, but tattoo artists/floaters we have talked to have suggested waiting 4-6 weeks.
To make everything less stressful on you (and to make sure you get your full time in the tank), please arrive 15 minutes before your float time and always plan for traffic. Be sure to use the restroom before your first shower to avoid any discomfort during your float.
Please respect that this is a quiet zone. Use soft voices and ensure your cell phone is either off or turned to silent mode. If you need to take a call, please do so outside the center.
Please keep your pre & post-float showers to 5-minutes each. This helps conserve water and keeps our floats on schedule.
