A Guide to your First Float
Arrive 15 minutes early - Welcome! Meet our friendly float guide and check in.
Your guide will show you to your private float suite, introduce you to our amazing float pod, give you a walk-through of the whole process, and answer any questions you may have.
Place your phone on silent or airplane mode. The next hour is all about you.
Put in your supplied silicon earplugs and shower thoroughly with our organic soap and shampoo. Even if you’ve just showered at home you’re still require to do this step before floating to remove any oils, fragrances, hair product, make up, etc.
For the best experience, turn off any additional lights in the room before you enter the pod.
Step into your pod slowly and lie down to effortlessly float. Music will ease you in for the first ten mins, and the last five minutes before your session ends. This is where we could explain what the next 60 minutes would be like for you but... every float is as unique as the person in the pod, so just lay back, chill and enjoy the ultimate relaxation and the countless health benefits :-)
Rinse & Reflect
Shower to wash off the salt, as you slowly return to reality. Body lotion, facial moisturiser and a hairdryer are also available for you post float.
Bask in your post float glow in our lounge while enjoying a warm cup of herbal tea.
You’ll feel the beneficial effects of floatation for days after, or even weeks with regular practice.
Pre Float Suggestions
Avoid eating or drinking anything substantial at least 2 hours before floating.
Avoid caffeine or alcohol or any chemical stimulants 4 hours before floating as they may disrupt your relaxation.
Avoid smoking 2 hour before floating
Avoid shaving on the same day of your float. Your skin may be a little sensitive when floating in the highly concentrated Epsom Salt water.
Avoid colour treatment of your hair at least 14 days before your float.
Avoid spray tans 10 days before your float
Floating puts you gently in a different state of consciousness, one that’s meditative and has characteristics of the consciousness of sleep. Your body and mind undergo a level of relaxation that may be new for you.
To maximise the benefits of this experience, and keep you from feeling jarred by re-entry to the world, make sure you give yourself at least an hour on the other side of your float session to gradually recover and reflect on the experience.
You can head off and bask in that post-float glow or stick around for as long as you like and enjoy a Peppermint tea, chat about your experience / add an entry into our journal to share your experience with fellow first time floaters.
Empowerment is integral to each float experience, which is why our guests remain in control of their sessions from beginning to end.
