Environmental Factors Causing You Pain?
Do you sit all day? Are you on your feet a lot? Have an otherwise physically demanding job? Floatation Therapy is an excellent practice for regularly combatting the stresses our body’s face due to the nature of our work environments. Remember, we are working for about a third of our life most days, which is a lot of accumulated stress that we need to strategically manage.
If the decades worth of scientific research isn’t enough for you, we have hundreds of clients who have experienced relief and regularly share their incredible stories with us.
While most people experience relief on their very first visit, for truly optimal results, we recommend floating 2-3 times a month for 2-3 months. It’s a great way to dive into a practice of wellness that will help effectively manage your pain naturally.
For those really keen, floating once a week is incredible. However, even 1-2 floats / month for 4-6 months is very beneficial too and is a good start before reducing the frequency of needing to float. But you may find that you look forward to your personal retreat and want to continue floating at the same pace or even increase the frequency like a lot of our clients.
Many people can easily sink into the depths of a float session on their very first try. However, we are all formed by our life experiences a little differently and for others it make take 2-3 floats before a deeper connection is made, this is normal.
Once you've cleared your first 10 floats, done within one of the frequencies suggested above, you should be able to to see how floating can benefit you and your life. Then typically 1-2 floats / month is a great place to be. Even taking little breaks is good and then coming back with greater intensity (e.g. 3 floats in 2 weeks) is excellent. If life is getting busy and you are FEELING the stress accumulate this is the SIGN that you should float, this is when you want floating to be supporting you and your life. By opting to find time to float during these busy times will help you strategically manage stress!

What is Floatation Therapy?
Imagine the most calm, serene, and tranquil environment - perfect for relaxation.
A meditative setting free from the noises and distractions of the outside world, allowing your mind to slow down, unplug, and focus on what's important to you.
Your body escapes the stresses and strains of gravity that weigh you down, as you effortlessly Float. It's the ultimate relaxation and de-stressing experience that you simply can't replicate anywhere else!

RECOMMENDATIONS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR FIRST FLOAT:
Avoid having heavy meal immediately before floating, don't be too hungry either as you don’t want your stomach to be a distraction: a similar balance as if you were about to exercise,
Avoid caffeine at least 3-4 hours before the float, caffeine is a stimulant and it takes us in the exact opposite direction from where we are trying to go as in a float psycho-physiologically speaking.
Use your breath to help you relax; slow and deep inhalations through the nose into the lower belly will take you into deeper states of relaxation. Focus on your breath
If you are generally a restless person doing some form of physicality (as simple as a 10-20 min. walk) is very complimentary before a float as it can help encourage greater stillness once you've allowed any disjointed or pent-up energy to be released.
Decompress and get centered with a session in our Zero-Gravity Massage Chairs immediately before your Float.
FIRST FLOAT JITTERS? RELAX EASIER WITH THESE TIPS:
Opt to keep soft meditation music on to encourage peace and tranquility. Music can be very welcoming to the space and as it fades to silence it will be like you're being laid down into a soft bed of feathers (metaphorically), although we do usually recommend Floating in silence for deeper healing, connection, and relaxation.
Let go and trust the water. Allow the water to hold your entire body, observe if you are holding onto any tension unconsciously that could prevent you from fully letting go.
Consider using the neck pillow provided for extra neck support if you find yourself having a hard time letting go and trusting the water, as everyone floats effortlessly
Give yourself what YOU need to relax and remember that you are always in complete control of the experience, you can get out whenever you want so there is no need to stress or panic, floating is supposed to be and is (with some practice) a beautiful, personal, deeply rejuvenating experience.
Pre-first-float-apprehension is common, so work with yourself and give yourself what you need to feel great, to trust and to relax. This is a part of the learning curve of floating. Use compassion and non-judgment to give yourself full permission to "LET GO". Connecting with the deeper float experiences can happen on the first float for some, for others it is not uncommon to need to try floating 2-3 times before they experience that deeper connection, the true surrendering and letting go. So it's best to look at floating as a process, as a practice.
