The Float - Tips To Optimize Your Experience

Before...

We provide just about everything you need at the centre, so just bring yourself. You do not need a bathing suit as you float in the nude. We have a hair dryer, flat iron, hair brushes, & different hair and skin products at our vanity. But feel free to bring your own brush and post-float vanity products. 


If this is your first time floating, here's how to best prepare:


  1. Please try to arrive about 15 minutes before your appointment.
  2. We will ask you to fill out a short waiver and we will give you a walk through of our space.
  3. You will be asked to remove any outdoor footwear. You may bring slippers or indoor shoes of you wish. 
  4. Float sessions are 90 minutes total. Including: 10 minutes pre-float & post-float for a shower & change. 60 minutes in the Float Tank. 5-10 Minutes for us to clean the room for the next customer.
  5. Avoid caffeine for 3-4 hours before your float.
  6. Avoid shaving or waxing for at least 1 day before floating.
  7. Try to eat a light meal 60-90 minutes before your float.
  8. Make sure to use the washroom before your session so you are not distracted.
  9. If you wear contacts, bring something to put them in.

During...

  1. Shower and rinse off using the unscented pre-float body wash and shampoo.
  2. Dry your face and hairline completely.
  3. Insert the earplugs of your choice – be sure to dry your ears beforehand to create an effective seal.
  4. Get into the tank and allow yourself time to adjust and feel comfortable.
  5.  Feel free to experiment with different body and arm positioning: some options include arms above your head, fingers interlaced behind your head, arms by your side, hands on your belly, and anything else you find comfortable! There is no right or wrong way to float – body position will vary for each individual based on spinal alignment, past injuries, etc.…
  6.  Feel free to take the mini pool noodle into the tank for extra support behind your head.
  7.  To achieve a deep state of relaxation, find a comfortable position and let the water settle.
  8.  If at any time you get salt-water in your face, use the towel and spray bottle provided on the tank handle.
  9.  When your session comes to an end, soft music will gently fade in through underwater speakers.
  10.  Stand up before exiting the tank and allow yourself a few moments to re-adjust to the post-float world, letting the water drip off of your body while you take a few deep breaths.
  11.  The floor might feel slippery – mind your step.
  12.  If you get any salt-water in your ears, be sure to take the vinegar ear rinse into the shower with you.
  13.  Shower thoroughly, being sure to rinse all of the salt-water from your body and hair.

After...

  1. There is a vanity and additional toiletries provided for your convenience at the front of the hall.
  2. Feel free to use gym space afterwards (if available) for a stretch or exercise 
  3.  Relax and enjoy a cup of tea in our lounge.  
  4. Book your next float
  5. Enjoy the post-float GLOW!
