We offer 90-minute floatation therapy sessions, or “floats,” in one of our three modern, clean and very spacious float tanks. Choose from an open float room or two float cabins.
We recommend those who are new to this type of therapy try floating two or even three times within a relatively short period of time to settle into the experience. That’s not to say first-time floaters don’t have amazing experiences—they often do. But it can take a few sessions to truly relax and let go. That’s when the really good stuff happens!
How it Works
Book online by clicking the "Book A Float" button above, or give us a call.
Reminders / notices
We will send you an email reminder in advance of your scheduled float. If you need to cancel, we understand, we simply ask that you please give at least 24-hours notice when possible.
What to bring
Everything you should need before, during and after your float is provided. Just bring yourself and an open mind. If you wear contact lenses, you may want to bring something to store them in. For those that would like a hairbrush for after your float, please bring your own.
When you come in, please mute your phone. It sucks having your float interrupted by a beeping phone. If you are a first-time floater, please show up 10 minutes prior to your float so we can familiarize you with the centre, our float tanks and the pre and post-float process.
You will get your own private room with a shower and a float tank. After your pre-float shower, move to the tank, sit down slowly, lie back and let the Epsom salt solution do the rest. At this point, just breathe, try to relax mind and body, and enjoy the experience!
When it’s Over
You will hear music begin to play, followed by a soft light turning on inside the tank to notify you that time is up. Take your time while getting out of the tank, then shower again to remove any salt.
If we do not engage you in conversation immediately following your float, please don’t take it personally - we actually don’t do it because we believe it can be for your benefit! The post-float state can be a great time to readjust, reflect or even just smile uncontrollably, so we like to give you some space. If and when you are ready to chat, we would love to hear about your experience.
You are welcome to chill out in our post-float space for as long as you like. There is a prep area with hairdryers, lotions and other toiletries that you are free to use. We provide complimentary tea and water, reading material, chalkboard wall and a post-float journal for anyone who wants to leave comments or document their experience for others to read.
The more often we float, the more we discover what works for us. In the meantime, we can try to help you make the most of your float.
Remove Expectations Each float experience is unique to the individual and the moment. Try to let go of expectations of what a float may or may not be. Instead, an open mind is best and if you want to set intentions, this can also be helpful.
Avoid Caffeine. For at least four hours before your float. Caffeine activates the body’s stress response and can hinder your ability to relax.
Pre-Float Food A super full stomach is not great for floating, nor is the emptiest of stomachs. Having a light, easily digestible meal 1.5 to 2 hours pre-float is ideal.
Shaving For men, avoid shaving your face at least 6 hours before you float. For women, avoid shaving your body at least 12 hours before your float. Any lesions will be distracting due to the Epsom salt sting.
Smoking Smoking just prior to the tank may stimulate you too much. Even if you are craving a cigarette the tank may very well suppress your craving. However, you’ll need to figure out what the best formula is for you and your biochemistry.
Bathroom Once you are in the tank we are pretty confident you won’t want to get out. If you need to go to the bathroom during your float, be sure to rinse in the shower, throw on a towel and head to the bathroom.
Quiet The Body and Mind. To help enter a state of deep relaxation sooner, try to focus on your breath. This helps calm the mind and gives you something to come back to when your mind begins to wander.
Salt Water on the Face/Eyes. Hang the small face towel provided, in the float tank, where it is easily accessible so if you get a little salt water on your face you won’t have to get out to dry it off. If you get salt water in your eyes use the spray bottle of fresh water hanging on the tank to rinse.
Hair Dye For guests with recently coloured hair or highlights, we recommend not floating until roughly 3 weeks or more after treatment. Dyes can (in some cases) bleed out or be affected by the heavy concentration of epsom salt and skin temperature water. With hair dye it's best to play it safe than sorry.
"Floating gives you amazing energy. The tension release from a couple hours in the float tank is incredible. You feel lighter, you feel like there is more oxygen in your body, you feel more vibrant, and it's because you have calmed the tension."-Joe Rogan, comedian, UFC commentator, podcaster
