My Chicago Experience

  • body felt like a brick
  • shoulders in tonic hunch
  • became very hydrated
  • arms began to unroll
  • extreme difficulty returning to right brain activity!

Preparing for your float

  • Avoid drinking coffee or black tea and eating for one hour before floating.
  • The use of drugs or alcohol before floating is not advisable.
  • Shaving or depilating within three hours of floating is not recommended as the salt water could sting the skin.
  • Floating is not allowed on a day when you have your period or can reasonably expect it.
  • If you have major cuts or wounds floating is not permitted.
  • Don’t forget solution and carrying case if you intend to remove your contact lenses.
  • If you are pregnant or recovering from childbirth, please confer with us beforehand.
  • Consult with your physician before floating if you have any physical or mental complaints.

Water Pump

  • be sure to get clear hose in sections of 20' and clamps for each section... after using the hose one time, sections of it (usually near the clamps) will accumulate epsom salt, and block the flow of water the next time you try to drain water... when the hose is clear, then you can see where to slam the hose against concrete to break the salt crystallizations.
