What You Need to Know Before Your First Floatation Experience!

08, Feb 2021 in Education & Resources

Have you been thinking about giving floatation therapy a try, but unsure what it’s all about? We have you covered!

Floatation therapy utilises a precise solution of water and Epsom salts to give you the sensation of effortless floating. This allows you to completely unwind and tune out to the outside world. As well as providing a unique buoyancy that allows you to float without any strain on your muscles, the ingredients are soft on your skin for an after-treatment glow.

Floatation therapy has many benefits including:

  • Increased relaxation
  • Muscle recovery after exercise
  • Alleviated headaches
  • Inflammation reduction
  • Recovery from Sports or injury
  • Alleviated fatigue
  • Enhanced circulation
  • Management of acute or chronic pain
  • A reduction in depression
  • Lowered blood pressure
  • Reduction in anxiety and stress and
  • Improved sleep patterns

There are a few things you need to be aware of to prepare yourself for a floatation therapy session:

  1. Stay hydrated and don’t skip meals prior to your float
  2. Cover any cuts or scrapes with a waterproof dressing
  3. Remove contact lenses and jewellery
  4. Contact us to reschedule if you are menstruating or unwell
  5. Don’t shave or wax within 24hrs of your session
  6. Contact us to reschedule if you have coloured your hair in the last 7 days
  7. Don’t consume drugs or alcohol prior to your appointment
