RECOMMENDATIONS BEFORE & DURING FLOATS
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your session. This allows for enough time for check-in and room preparation so that you can start your session on time.
Avoid shaving your body at least 12 hours before your float. Avoid shaving your face at least 6 hours before your float. Any cuts or openings can be distracting due to the Epsom salt stinging.
If you have recently colored hair or highlights we recommend not floating for roughly a week or more after treatment. Sometimes the dyes can bleed out or be affected by the epsom salt. The best way to check and see if you can float is by rinsing your hair in water. If the color doesn’t run then you’re good to float!
We strongly recommend avoiding caffeine before floating. The stimulation is the exact opposite of what you want to feel during your float session.
You don’t want to be super full or empty. Having a light, easily digestible meal 1.5 to 2 hours pre-float is probably ideal.
Drink a bit of water before your float to avoid dehydration but don’t overdo it otherwise you’ll have to go to the washroom mid float.
Be sure to use the washrooms provided before entering your session. It can be very distracting and annoying during the float.
Smoking prior to your session may be too stimulating. However, you’ll need to figure out what the best formula is for you and your biochemistry.
We have found that performing physical activity before your float can greatly enhance the float experience. Relaxation of the muscles, increased blood flow and a clear and calm mind are fantastic, post-workout. Check out our benefits page for more information.
We recommend waiting 4 weeks after getting a tattoo before floating. If it is a larger piece then we advise 6+ weeks in order to protect your art.
