It is now optional to listen to something (music, white noise, meditations) from either Spotify, Apple Music or Youtube while floating.
While we feel the silent/traditional float is best for maximizing the benefits from sensory reduction we do recognize that people relax in different ways and that some people would enjoy something to listen to while in the tank.
If you feel that some soft music, meditations, or white noise etc. will aid in a more enjoyable experience, simply let our staff know at check-in what you’ll prefer and we’ll be happy to help.
Each float tank at Float Tank Barrie is wired to play anything available on Spotify, Apple Music or Youtube. Let us know what you enjoy listening to and we'll cue it up.
Once you have made your request we will begin playing your audio 10 minutes after you have entered the room.
At the end of your float we will switch your audio over to our Wake Up Music. Two chimes will play at the end of the song followed by a brief message letting you know your float has come to an end.
We recommend being prepared in advance for what you would like to listen to (example - Beatles White Album, a certain ambient chill playlist, white noise playlist etc.) So we can easily and quickly look it from either Apple Music, Spotify, or Youtube as you will not be refunded due to not enjoying any particular soundscapes you have requested.
There is only the option to start playing audio at the beginning of your float. For example you cannot request to have music begin 30 mins after you enter the room.
If you would like to customize your experience anymore we recommend creating your own playlist on either iTunes/Apple Music, Spotify, or Youtube to play in the tank. (example - create a playlist that is silent for 30 minutes then plays music the next 30 minutes)
You can share your playlist via email with Float Tank Barrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) before coming into float and we can cue it up.
