What isFloat Therapy
Float therapy is entering a state of complete relaxation. In order to achieve total peace, you will lie in a tank or pool that is filled with a concentrated salt solution. The high concentration of salt allows your body to float effortlessly (even if you have never been able to float before). The solution remains at skin temperature, accompanied by a room void of light and sound, this is the perfect combination for your body and mind to experience a deeply relaxed state.
Float therapy was first discovered by the neuroscientist John C. Lilly in the mid-1950’s. Floating was originally coined the term “sensory deprivation” or “isolation tank,” and that was because Lilly’s primary study was based on the question “Do our brains need external stimuli to maintain it’s consciousness?”
How to get the most out of yourfloat experience
First You Shower
There is a shower in every room. You will want to shower before getting into the tank/pool for two reasons. One, we ask that you remove all debris and oils from your skin. Second, showering preps the skin and it will not be a shock getting into the tank/pool.
Step into the Tank/Pool
Now you’re on your way. It’s time to dive in (not literally of course). Take this time to play around in the tank/pool. This will allow your mind to get more comfortable being in this new environment.
Lay Down and Relax
This will be the second hardest thing you will have to do. For some, the relaxing part can be difficult, but just give it time and focus on your breathing and you will get there.
Let your mind wander
Now that you made it past the second hardest part, it’s time to take on the hardest part of the experience, letting your mind wander. The best advice we can give you is to focus on your breathing. Once you let go you’ll wonder why you ever held on.
Get Out Slowly
At this point, the session has come to an end. Bummer, I know. You will want to take your time when stepping out of the tank/pool. You may have to take a few moments to get your bearings again and remember you just floated.
Shower The Salt off
Don’t forget to shower, again. You will want to get all the salt off of yourself. Otherwise once you leave you will start to get all crusty from the drying salt.
Embrace your new self
This is by far the most important step. We all experience floating differently, but the one thing we all have in common is we become more accepting of ourselves. Embrace that acceptance and carry it with throughout the day and week.
