Before You Float

The day of your float session...

What to bring?

The directions, we are challenging to find, so if you have not been here before please plan on getting to us 15 minutes early. Call us a or text @ 510-535-1702 if you will be late, on busy days late appointments will generally be canceled 15 minutes after your scheduled time.

We supply towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face & body moisturizers, disposable ear plugs, hair dryer, tea and water. For sanitation reasons you will need to bring a comb or brush and any special lotions or cosmetics you care to use after your float. You do not need to bring a bathing suit as it is preferable to float in the nude.

Other things…

Know before you float

The most important thing is to relax and enjoy!

If you are a first time floater we recommend that you plan for three float sessions, scheduled approximately one week to one month apart. Although there are many exceptions, generally it can take up to 3 floats to receive the full benefits of floating and get accustomed to the process. We offer many packages to help reduce the cost of multiple float sessions. You can also sign-up for our mailing list to receive float customer specials.

What to expect:

If you are coming alone put please plan on spending 1.5 hours with us for a 1 hour float. Couples should plan on 2 hours.

As a new floater this is what you can expect...

You will be given water to ensure that you are well hydrated before the float, followed by a 10 minute orientation with a little history about floatation tanks, and how to safely enter and exit the tank. Please feel free to ask any questions about floating at this time. Then you will be asked to shower, and you must be 100% clean prior to entering the tank. Robes, shoes and disposable ear plugs are provided. Once your hour is up, we will knock on the tank letting you know it's time to exit the tank. You need to then ensure you are dry, and not dripping with salt when you walk to the shower. The bathroom is well supplied with shampoo, conditioner body wash and moisturizers, along with blow dryers. Once you return to the gallery, we will have water and a cup of hot tea waiting for you, it is best to sit and relax after your float. On a sunny day, please bring your sunglasses as it will be super bright outside.
