You always remember the
first time you try something new. The feeling of excitement and nervousness all
tied into one can leave its mark on you. The first time you float will be one
of those memories you’ll never want to forget. Maybe you heard about it through
a friend, or through a publication of some kind, or maybe you’ve had an
interest but haven’t had the chance to try it out yet. Whatever the reason is
that brought you here today, we’ve got you covered on how to ace your first
Here’s a simple to follow list of exactly what
not to do before the first time you try flotation therapy.
- Caffeinate: Ditch the coffee, tea and soda pop
for a few hours before the time of your appointment and opt for an extra glass
of h2o instead. That buzzy feeling you get from drinking caffeine could prevent
your body and mind from fully relaxing during the float. Let your body seize
the moment and deeply indulge in the RnR that floating provides and we’ll have
hot tea ready for you when you come out (caffeine free, of course).
- Shave: Skip the shave and leave that stubble
right where it belongs! Shaving before a float can cause an itchy sensation
during your session which will keep your mind preoccupied and active instead of
relaxed and meditative.
We love all colors of the rainbow but we don’t love them leaking into our
precious salty water. If you have a recent dye job (and by recent we mean the
color is still bleeding in the shower), please reschedule your appointment
until the dye no longer bleeds while wet. The salt in our water solution can
strip your hair of it’s recent color makeover and that’s no fun for anyone.
Avoid the $500 contamination fee and instead, soak in the health benefits of
magnesium for your hair, skin and nails. Win, win for everyone.
- Overindulge: Consuming overly sugary or greasy foods before your float can
potentially cause nausea during the session. We’d suggest going a for a lighter
snack and enjoying a full meal after your appointment. You’d be surprised how
hungry you can get after just 60 minutes and how delicious food can taste from
your post float heightened senses.
- Splash : Avoid splashing the salt water into your eyes. Do not touch your
face during the float. Trust us, salt finds a way. We’ve provided a hand towel
& fresh water spray bottle for each floater to use.
We all make rookie mistakes sometimes (it happens to the best of us). We felt it’s important to provide you a list of all these things NOT to do before your float so that the first time you do experience it, you walk out feeling your best.
