What to expect before, during and after your first float


Please refrain from dying your hair for a minimum of 3 days (or washes) before your float. If color is showing on a towel, you will not be able to float without damaging our tanks and will be asked to reschedule.


Please wait a minimum of a week after receiving a tattoo to book your float.


If you wear contact lenses, we recommend taking them out and bringing glasses if possible.


It’s best not to float too hungry or full, and to avoid caffeine just before your float. We also recommend not waxing or shaving because of the high salt content in our tanks.


Arrive 5-10 minutes before your appointment to complete your client intake form.


A friendly, knowledgeable team member will give you a full orientation, and you’ll be able to ask any questions you may have.


Everything you need to float comfortably will be provided for you, and is included in the cost of your service.



It’s best to avoid touching your face to prevent getting salt in your eyes. (But not to worry! A bottle of fresh water and a washcloth are provided for you in the tank should you forget.)


Try different arm positions to help fully ease and relax your muscles. Once you’ve settled in, we recommend staying in that position if possible as it helps with temperature regulation. 


Experiment with lights, music and head support to discover your preferred experience.


Every float is different. Sometimes it’s easy to slip into a quiet mind or sleep (don’t worry- it’s safe!), and other times your monkey mind might chatter. Rest assured that each experience in the tank is beneficial to your well-being.


When the session concludes, the lights will fade on and a gentle voice will let you know the session is complete.



Hair dryers and other useful items are provided in our rest rooms


Make your way to the relaxation lounge, and help yourself to a cup of tea from our neighbor Sacred Tree Herbals. Our beautiful porch overlooking Meredith’s historic Main Street is also available when weather permits.
