WHAT IS FLOATATION THERAPY?
Effortlessly unwind and soothe yourself from life's daily stresses with Floatation Therapy.
Here at Flōt Nōla, our large float spa's allow you to comfortably drift in a dream-like state. Buoyancy is created within the 9 foot round system with 800-1000 lbs of Epsom salt blended into water to create a dense ten inches of saline solution which is continuously warmed to match skin temperature. The room and float spa are typically kept dark and silent during the floatation experience but upon request, calming lights and relaxing music may be incorporated. The float spa is unique because you may also choose to keep the top of the spa closed or easily allow the top to remain open during your session. When floating, you are comfortably lying on your back while your body is effortlessly being supported by the dense saline solution. With this full support of the solution, you will feel weightless and free from the strain of gravity, allowing your body to fully relax.
Backed by scientific research, floating has instant and lasting cumulative benefits. The research has also shown that the effects are better with regular floatation sessions. Our float spa systems have been carefully designed to provide healthful benefits.
Floatation Therapy is mostly used as a method to alleviate discomfort and stress while helping many achieve a state of deep relaxation and healing. While the body recovers from pain and stress, you may also experience vivid dreaming and a shift in consciousness.
THE FOLLOWING ARE EXAMPLES OF THE MANY BENEFITS ONE MAY EXPECT TO ACHIEVE WITH FLOATATION THERAPY.
KNOW BEFORE YOU FLOAT
Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled float to complete necessary paperwork and to also receive a quick tour of our float spa.
Freshly colored hair: Wait two weeks before floating.
Spray/Faux Tanning: Wait 5 days before you float.
It is always best if caffeine is avoided before your float.
You may experience a certain level of discomfort while floating if you shave or wax the same day before your appointment.
Hydrate and be sure to eat a light meal 2 hours prior to your float.
Keep a contact lease case and solution with you if needed.
A swimsuit is not necessary - you will always have privacy at our spa.
Hygiene is of the utmost importance to us, that’s why our float spa is drained and disinfected after each use. The saline solution is filtered through an extensive system to ensure all impurities are removed while any residue left behind on the interior float spa walls is wiped down and sanitized. All towels, robes, amenities are replenished after each use to ensure proper cleanliness and a safe environment for each guest.
WHAT WE PROVIDE
ADVICE FOR A BETTER FLOAT
Having an extra hot shower before your float may cause you to feel cool when first laying in skin temperature solution. We suggest that by keeping the temperature on a comfortably warm setting will help you ease into your floaty bliss without a stark disturbance in temperature change (the water is kept at 95 degrees Fahrenheit in the float spa).
Try various positions with your arms to alleviate any discomfort with your neck. A massage before your float might just be what you need if you experience any muscular tension/pain.
Steady yourself and allow yourself to drift during your float-try to not push off the walls with too much force.
Progressive relaxation is a technique used by many who float. Imagine each muscle and joint starting with your feet. Mentally release tension from each muscle, working your way up the body while taking full, deep breaths into your lungs and belly.
Expect nothing and just let everything go.
