Is Float Therapy something new-age?, floatation therapy has been around for 50 years. Floatation therapy, also known as sensory deprivation, is based on a scientific approach to deep relaxation called R.E.S.T. for short. The idea was developed in 1954 at NIMH in Washington. It is one of the most effective and incredible means of stress relief and relaxation available.
How often should I float? There are no rules as to how often you should float, however when you start floating, it is ideal if you are able to manage several floats within a fairly short time say one float per 1-2 week for 3-5 sessions. We know that this isn’t always possible however & most people will find they feel real benefit from even just one float.For long-term benefits, it is preferable to float regularly (monthly or weekly) to help maintain reduced stress levels, muscle tension & improve overall well-being rather than using it as a reactionary treatment when stress & tension levels are already high. The common sense approach that prevention is better than cure also applies to floating.
Is there anything I should do to prepare? Try to abstain from caffeine or other stimulants for several hours beforehand. Also, try not to wax or shave the day of your float since the salt water will sting irritated/sensitive skin— the same goes for fresh tattoos and more serious cuts or scrapes. Eat a light meal an hour or two ahead of time to keep your stomach from making potentially distracting noise.
Can two people float together? It is physically possible for two people to float together, but we do not recommend more than one person in the tank at a time. Once you have floated you will realise that the experience is quite personal and worrying about disturbing someone else lying next to you really defeats the purpose of the experience.
Can I float if I just dyed my hair? Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that the Epsom salt won’t strip some color from your hair. If you're willing to take that risk all we ask is that you've given time for the dye to set, and that no color comes out when you shower at home. If your hair dye doesn't leach out onto your towels after drying, then you should be alright in the tank.
Do I wear anything inside of the tank? Floating is a private experience, so most people don’t wear anything. To get the most out of R.E.S.T. we recommend floating in the nude.
Is there an age restriction for Float Therapy? Minors must be at least 14 years old to use any service at Mohler Recovery. A parent of a minor between the ages of 14 and 17 must sign, in person at Mohler Recovery, a waiver of liability for the minor before the minor may use any service.
Will I drown if I fall asleep? Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that everyone, whatever shape or size, floats effortlessly. Just remember not to wipe your eyes when you wake or else you’ll be in for a short bout of saltwater pain.
What if I’m claustrophobic? People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating; being in the tanks feels more like drifting in a vast empty space than being "trapped" inside of a box. Just remember that you’re in total control of the environment and can get in and out of the tank anytime.
Can I float if I’m pregnant? Pregnant women love floating! There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of the baby off of the mother’s body. If you are in your third trimester, or have any concerns, please consult with your physician before coming in.
I just got a tattoo, should I float? Floating and fresh tattoos do not mix! Not only could floating with a fresh tattoo be painful (salt + open wounds = ouch) but the water solution could cause fading or discoloration of your tattoo and permanently ruin its aesthetic appeal. How long you should wait before floating depends on the tattoo and how quickly it heals, but tattoo artists/floaters we have talked to have suggested waiting 4-6 weeks.
Will my skin get dehydrated from soaking for so long? No- your skin doesn’t even prune up, but it does become silky soft afterwards.
How do you clean the tanks? Every 20 minutes and between each float, our water is filtered 4x through a 1-10 micron filter, and treated with UV light, Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide. Our filtration system is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size and is FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration).
Is it better to use the sauna before or after the float? We recommend a Ozone sauna session prior to your float. This detoxifies your body and opens your pores, allowing the magnesium from the Epsom salts to easily absorb into your body.
What affects does flotation therapy have on the mind? During a float, you produce slower brainwave patterns, known as theta waves, which are normally only experienced during a deep meditation or just before falling asleep. This is usually accompanied by vivid imagery, very clear, creative thoughts, sudden insights and inspirations or feelings of profound peace and joy. Because of these effects, floating is used effectively in the treatment of depression and addictions.
Is floating successful for everyone? Floating, as with other treatments, does not suit everybody. It requires willingness on your part to let go and see what happens, and you may need to float a few times before you are able to relax completely, both physically and mentally. Depending on your own journey through life, a float might provide an hour of total physical relaxation – or a profound healing experience, emotionally and spiritually transforming. Floating can be a wonderful aid to opening doors into your inner world, gradually allowing access to those deeper levels at which real changes take place.
