It is actually defined as resting or remaining buoyant on the surface of 12 inches of water that contains 900 pounds of pharmaceutical grade magnesium sulfate, also known as Epsom salt. The water is at skin temperature and after a few minutes you lose the awareness of where the body ends and the water begins. Resting in this unique environment creates profound changes within the mind/body system and actually improves the overall function of the brain and the central nervous system. A lot of times with your first floating experience can seem a little unusual because of the unfamiliar process of floating but as you continue to float and there are less floating firsts it will allow your mind to truly embrace the process. Float therapy is backed by over forty years of mainstream scientific research in human performance.
The 900 pounds of Epsom salt in the water allows you to stop fighting gravity and lie passively and effortlessly on your back. As you lay in absolute tranquility, every muscle is allowed to gradually relieve all of its tensions. Your entire body, including internal organs, muscles and bones will be, for the first time, completely rested and at ease. There is the option of underwater music and lights but it is typically recommended to take all sensory stimulants away. We however always suggest to float at your own comfort level. Every person experiences floating in there own way. The water is kept at an exact 93.5 degrees or skin temperature. This allows you to lose track of where your body ends and the water and air begins. When your body is free of gravitational forces, sound, light, and temperature the brain is actually able to truly expand into areas that usually can only be reached in the deepest of meditations.
How do I prepare and what do I bring for my float???
Please arrive for your float 15 minutes prior to your float to sign the waiver and receive the initial float orientation
You will want to bring a brush for post float and something to put your contact lenses into while you are in the tank. Our room is fully private and you will be floating nude so there is no need to bring a swimsuit. Other than that the float bar is stocked with everything that you will need. One towel, robe, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, ear plugs, cotton swab, a vinegar solution to dissolve salt from ears if needed, and petroleum jelly for small cuts.
We recommend that you do not shave or wax right beforehand because the Epsom salt can sting.
We recommend that you do not have any caffeine a couple hours prior to your float and that you eat a small meal or snack 1 hour prior to floating so your tummy growling doesn’t interrupt your sensory deprivation.
If you are getting in a workout that same day we recommend that it is prior to your float since the float will reduce muscle tension, helps align the spine and help the body recover more quickly.
If your hair is newly dyed please check to make sure that when you are showering at home that the water that is running through your hair is fully clear. If there is still some color coming out you should wait a couple more days/showers. This will ensure the integrity of the float water and your newly dyed luscious locks!
Our water is extremely clean. It will most likely be some of the cleanest water you’ve been in. We completely recirculate our water 3 times through our filtration system between each float. This system uses a combination of UV sterilizer with ozone, a Unicel filter, and hydrogen peroxide (which is a non-toxic alternative to cholrine and bromine). In addition the float tank has an extremely high salt concentration which makes it incredibly difficult for bacterial growth. There is a reason it is called the Dead Sea. We also measure and adjust the pH, alkalinity, temperature, and specific gravity daily.
Absolutely. The pod is actually pretty spacious at 5.8 feet wide and 8.6 feet long. It is very important to try and stay calm and remember that you are always always in control of your float. You can stop the float and exit the pod at any time as there is not a latch. We have actually found it very peaceful when you turn it all off and close your eyes. You feel like you are truly floating in outer space rather than in a pod. It really is magical!
Yes. We do ask that you change your tampon prior to your float and highly recommend changing it immediately after. Some women do experience some discomfort in their feminine areas before or during this time.
They were invented in 1954 by a man named John C. Lily. When they first came to light it involved full submersion in water with a breathing device. In the early 1970’s the first actual lay down commercial tanks were invented.
Nopers. When people do fall asleep the high buoyancy of the water will keep you afloat. The worst might be that you get salt in your eye.
Are you ready for this mouthful?!?! When you get rid of all the noise in our crazy world your brain is actually able to chill out for a second and dive into a deep relaxation that takes our minds and bodies to places they otherwise could not go!!!!
This list seriously goes on and on. Like we have said before it is really important to remember that every persons float experience is very different. You may experience some, all, or even new benefits from your float!!!
