A. Although floating can take some getting used to for the first time, most say it’s a very relaxing experience.

A. No special preparation is required. We recommend avoiding caffeine for 90 minutes before the float if possible. Also avoid shaving or waxing a couple days before floating, as the salty water can cause some stinging if it contacts irritated skin.

The Most Important Things To Look For In A Float Center

A float center can offer a patient a wide range of benefits and before you decide to embark on this form of therapy, it is important to know exactly what you need to look for. The float center has been around in one incarnation or another since the 1950s and those who wish to get the most out of their treatment are typically of the special things that they need to be looking for.

What about those who are slightly less familiar with this concept? What are the things that you need to be looking for when you are trying to choose a float center that works best for you? Be sure to read on and learn more, so that you can make the best possible choice for you and your future.

Setup and Equipment

Before you agree to use a facility, you should be taking the time to check on their setup and find out more about the actual configuration that you are going to be using to float in. Since the majority of facilities rely on floating tanks and pods, there are no shortage of options for you to choose from and there is nothing wrong with taking the time to shop around a little bit. Don’t ever accept anything less than the best.

You need to choose equipment that will allow you to achieve a maximum state of comfort in order to get the most out of the experience. If you have any reservations about the setup of the equipment or how it is being used, this is a sure sign that you need to find a different facility. This leads us directly into the next point, which is….

The Facility

A subpar facility can still have state of the art equipment and you should never let yourself be fooled by the presence of fancy new machinery. Even if a facility has the most expensive equipment known to man, they are still going to need to take the time to ensure that the facility is fully clean and well kept before being able to assist patients.

The facility’s hiring policies are also crucial. While the facility may be well run, well kept and full of the latest equipment, it is all essentially meaningless without the presence of the right staff and we have now arrived at our final pointer…

The Staff

The best float center is a float center that can combine the best of all three worlds that we have just discussed. You need a facility that relies on a team of friendly and skilled associates to operate all of the equipment on hand and this team should be willing to put the patients’ mind at ease.

In a perfect world, the staff would have the ability to help create a positive vibe and remove any and all of negative energy from the equation. This form of therapy can be nerve wracking and that’s why friendly staff members are so pivotal. If the staff does not field questions and provide the proper answers, this is not a positive sign.
