Here are a few things you will want to familiarize yourself with before you arrive for your floatation appointment: ·For your first visit orientation and to ensure you receive the full hour floatation session, please insure that you arrive to your appointment on time. If you are running behind schedule, you must be sure to contact us and confirm that your appointment will still be valid, as the next wave of floaters would otherwise be kept waiting. Arrival of up to 15 minutes late will result in the forfeiture of your scheduled slot, along with 100% of the cost of the float.
·Try to schedule your appointment at a time when it is easiest for you to relax, similar to a time when you would book a massage. It is recommended that you plan ahead as not to have strenuous or stressful activities post the session, so that you can slowly unwind and absorb your experience in a calm, relaxed state to get the most out of it.
·Any physical activity such as yard work, working out, etc. prior to your appointment will enhance your overall experience. Your body and mind will be more ready to deeply relax and succumb to the healing properties of the Epson salts, as well as to let go metaphysically.
·In the event you have showered at home prior to your session, it is still required that you will take advantage of our shower facilities in your private spa, before entering the Dreampod. This is an extra measure to insure the overall hygiene and cleanliness of our facilities for the next floaters. Accordingly all deodorant, hair products, body lotions, makeup, perfumes, and colognes must be removed prior to floating. Additionally, we also recommend the removal of any jewelry and accessories, as they will only distract from the weightlessness of your overall experience.
·The salt water will not harm colored or treated hair, however, we ask that you wait a minimum of 72 hours after your hair treatment so as not to contaminate the water in the pod.
·If you have large cuts or open wounds, are experiencing an illness, or your session falls during your menstrual cycle, please contact us so we may advise you properly. As a general rule floating under such physical conditions is not recommended.
·It is very important and best not to have a big meal or any caffeine within a minimum of two hours prior to your scheduled appointment. You should avoid caffeine even longer before your appointment if you are sensitive to it.
·Do not shave for at least 4-6 hours before your float, as the highly concentrated salt solution will sting your skin. If you have any smaller cuts or scratches, we will provide liquid band-aid to cover those up.
·Towels, shampoo, soap, earplugs, and other amenities are provided for you. You will have your own personal room with Dreampod, private shower, and dressing area.
· In order to maximize the full transcendental potential of the experience, it is imperative that you arrive to the Float Center with the right attitude and preparedness. ·You will not need to bring any swimsuit gear or other clothing for you to float with. As mentioned, no clothing of any kind is allowed in the pods for sanitary reasons, as well as both the overall physical and spiritual aspects of the experience. It’s easy to understand how even the feel of any clothing becomes an attachment to the ‘physical’ awareness and distractive to the ultimate purpose of the float. In the tanks you are intimately in tune with your Body and Mind, and can truly let everything go and enjoy the ride. It’s fun!
