How to float…

Floating is a very personal experience, as each person has a unique experience. Even those who float regularly may have a different experience every time, there is no right or wrong way to float.

The main focus of your floatation session is to try and relax and letting the water hold you while you allow yourself to drift off into your own thoughts.

Within the float cabin, the water is only shallow so it is easy to sit up in the water and we suggest you get your bearings before lying back into the water. When you feel ready, lie back in the float cabin as if you were going to swim backstroke and allow the water to support you. If you really struggle with supporting your neck there are neck pillows available to help you feel more comfortable

Your neck may feel a little strange or heavy at first because we rarely re-align our spines these days due to a lot of computer time. Your arms are the strangest thing when floating and it may take a few tries to find a comfortable position for them.

Some customers like to starfish others like to put their hands on their belly, it’s totally up to you, just go with what’s most comfortable for you and try different positions. We have listed a few of the most popular ones below which you can try.

If you are a little nervous of the dark there is a handy button in each float cabin to turn the lights on or off.  You can also easily open the float cabin door if you are nervous or feeling claustrophobic.

All you need to remember is that you are in control of the floatation experience, and while it seems a little strange in the beginning, you’ll see that is unlike anything else in the world.
