WHAT IS FLOTATION THERAPY? https://www.healthline.com/health/sensory-deprivation-tank
A sensory deprivation tank also call an isolation tank or float tank. It is used for R.E.S.T. Restrictive Environmental Stimulus Therapy. It is a dark, soundproof tank filled with 12-18 inches of warm salt water.
The first tank was designed by Dr. John C. Lilly in 1954 an American Physician and a Neuro Scientist. He designed the tank to study the origins of consciousness by cutting off all external stimuli.
Studies suggest that time spent floating in a sensory deprivation tank may have some benefits in healthy people. Such as muscle relaxation, better sleep, decrease in pain, stress and anxiety. The link below will provide you more indepth information and what to expect from your float session.
PREPARE FOR YOUR FLOAT
Should you even float?
Floating has some great benefits for may people, but there are some people who shouldn't float. If you have uncontrolled Epilepsy, recent surgeries, alcohol or drug use, infectious disease, open wounds, serious psychological conditions. if you are menstruating or if you are in the last month of your pregnancy. If your in doubt of your circumstances or conditions, please give us a call to discuss this with us prior to scheduling your float time.
Avoid caffeine or any stimulants 4-6 hours ahead of your float. That can interrupt the relaxation response!
Have a bit of food on your stomach. A snack or small meal 60-90 minutes ahead of time can reduce the chances of your belly growling, which turns out is super loud disruption when you're in the tank.
Don't shave the day of your float. Shaving can irritate skin which can be rather ouch-y when you get into the 33% salk water solution.
Consider some transition time into your plan. Don't hurry to make it to on time through traffic may leve you feeling frazzled. We encourage people to stack their float with another service to help them relax and prepare for their float. You don't have to, but it will greatly enhance your experience.
Make sure you bring everything you need.
Which may be nothing? Your float tank is in a heated room 78+ degrees. You will have 5 minutes to shower before and 10 minutes after your float session. Please stay within that time to allow us proper cleaning and sanitzation between clients. There is only 30 minutes between clients floats, minimum. So, if you take a 20 minutes shower post float, we have no time to properly clean and disinfect for the next person floating after you. That will put everyone behind that floats following you. Please respect those time constraints. We provide free bath products, q-tips and even some A & D ointment should you have a small cut that needs to be protected from burning salt-water.
Your can grab some cold water or prepare a cup of hot tea and plan for time to let the experience settle into your bones.
Some also plan for a massage post float. With your muscle tissue soft, it is more pliable for the massage therapist and requires less time warming the tissue before getting in for deeper work.
THINGS TO CONSIDER
Remember that floating is a journey, seriously consider committing to a three float series. Just like doing Yoga, learning the movements over several classes improves your flexibility and mobility. In time your body learns to stretch with the movements.
It's the same with floating. One float is not enough to judge. The first float your brain is confused by the lack of signals from the central nervous system. It starts creating its own input and you can feel a little restless or not able to shut your mind off for the first float. But, when you buy a three series, we encourage you to come back once a week or once every other week and see the change from the first to the third float. Just like everything else in life, it is a beautiful process that unfolds and goes deeper with each float. Using some of the tips above will help you have the best float possible! We hope you love it as much as we do!
HAVE YOU RECENTLY COLORED YOUR HAIR?
If you have recently colored your hair and after washing, the water does not rinse clear, you'll need to wait to float. Hair dye can color the tank so we ask that you wait until your dye is set and excess is completely out before making your float appointment.
USE THE RESTROOM PRE-FLOAT
Please DO NOT pee in the float tank. This will contaminate the tank and require it to be completely drained and disinfected. This will result in a $1200 cleaning fee to you. You are asked to shower before to remove any lotions, hair care products, makeup or any other products you have on your body for this same reason. Please don't contaminate the float tank! If you have any scrapes or tiny cuts, be sure to apply a thin film of A & D Ointment that is provided for you onto that area. This does not come off in the tank.
If you wear contacts, you may want to bring a contact case or wear glasses. If salt water gets in your eyes during your float, having ocntacts in makes it difficult to rinse water out quickly. We have contact solution for you in the room should you need it.
