floating procedure

  • Arrive and check in (you don’t need to bring anything but yourself). 

  • New clients are asked to arrive 20 minutes before scheduled float time. There is a brief waiver to read and sign. 

  • We’ll cover the basics together and answer your questions.

  • Shower – put in ear plugs – step into the tank. Close the door. Light will turn off and your float session begins. 

  • When your time is up, music fades in, easing you out of your float. 

  • Opening door to the tank will turn the lights on. Carefully step out of the tank. 

  • Shower, get dressed and feel free to relax in "The Parlor" or "Movement Room"​

pre-float optimization

Avoid shaving, tanning, waxing—or anything else that would increase the sensitivity of your skin. Any cuts or lesions will be distracting due to the Epsom salt sting. 

If  you recently dyed your hair, you must wait at least two weeks before floating.

Hair that is not dyed professionally must wait a minimum of three weeks before floating.

If you eat too much before a float there may be some discomfort. On the other hand, floating on an empty stomach may cause some stomach grumbling. Somewhere in the middle is preferable. If possible, eat a light, clean meal 1.5-2 hours before your float.

It is good to be hydrated before a float. In order for your body to fully relax and heal, its important to stay hydrated. ​


Please be sure to use the restrooms before your float begins. Getting out of the tank to use the restroom can interrupt the flow of a float.

Avoid caffeine and other stimulants at least 4 hours before floating for the most relaxing experience. The float tank is trying to reduce stimulation and elicit the ‘relaxation response.'

Getting active before your float is a great idea. Yoga, running, and resistance training are all activities that pair well with floating. Your muscles and fascia will be loose and flowing with blood which helps to cleanse and repair your tissues. By using up any excess energy, your body will naturally ease into a deeper state of relaxation and meditation. Think of your float as the ultimate Savasana!
