POST FLOAT TIPS
These post float tips may come in handy...
Don't stress if you find salt build up in your hair after a float. A wash at home with your favourite cleansing shampoo will remove any build up. Salt + Soap can bond creating the clumpy feeling in your hair. Prevent salt and soap from meeting to easily avoid this in the future - ask us for tips. Feel free to bring your own hair products, just no conditioner in the pre shower.
If you hear salt in your ear canal after a float, rinse them well with a mixture of 50/50 vinegar and warm water. Some people will add an equal part rubbing alcohol to the mixture to help the ear canal dry faster. Next time be mindful to get a good clean in your post float shower.
It's important to hydrate well after your float. Add electrolytes for bonus points. Try a Flow water next time, or bring your favourite hydro flask and add an oGoFloat sticker!
next time try,
You only need to learn how to float once, and from there it's all practice. There are so many ways to play within your float practice and find deeper healing and discovery.
Guided Meditation or Music,
We have a few meditations and tracks on queue. If you have a specific recording you would like to listen to please bring your device. The sound platform must be able to Cast to a Google Chromecast audio only device. The audio only aspect means YouTube isn't available. Spotify works great.
Get yourself a journal and keep it with you when you come to float. Capture your pre-float thoughts and intentions, then after your float note any observations or epiphanies you had. oGoFloat has designed a float guidebook including journal prompts and further suggestions to maximize your practice. Get it for FREE HERE!
Combine floating with...
Floating pairs excellently with all of your existing self care practices. Maybe incorporate a long walk, paddleboard, or delicious meal after your float. Catch a yoga class before or after, or schedule your float on the same day as a massage or acupuncture.
Pre-Float Elixir or CBD,
Ask us for a recommendation for a pre-float elixir tailored to meet your goals. Incorporate your own pre float calming teas including CBD or cacao, remember to avoid caffeine.
Post Float Flow Water,
Hydration is important after your float. We stock Flow waters to encourage optimal hydration. Available in 500ml and 1L options in a variety of flavours.
Why does it feel so good?
Is it the exorbitant amount of Epsom salt? Is it the dark, or time alone with your thoughts? We all know water has massive healing properties, is it the feeling of returning to the womb? Or maybe it’s some kind of witchcraft or black magic?
The truth is, science doesn’t know exactly which component of floating makes it so special. More likely, it's the combination of everything, or rather the lack of anything that makes it so impactful. Although the ‘How’ is open for creative interpretation, floating is a science backed modality with numerous studies supporting it’s pain and anxiety reducing effects.
If you want to dig into the science of floating visit ClinicalFloat.com. It’s an excellent resource which includes a list of all of the peer reviewed, published studies, as well as a TED Talk, and presentations from the Float Conference.
Much like sculpting a six-pack at the gym, achieving lasting benefits from float therapy takes time and dedication. While some people experience profound changes in a single session, it's important to remember that floating is a journey, not a one-time fix. Just as life continues to present its challenges, float therapy offers an ongoing source of healing and rejuvenation. After experiencing the transformative power of the float tank, you'll find it irresistible to stay away, as it continually unveils new layers of well-being and relaxation.
We have a variety of options to guide you on a path to salty serenity.
