First time float
Before your Float Therapy appointment, it is recommended to stay hydrated. Be sure to eat about an hour/hour and a half before your appointment, something filling but light on your belly.
It is not recommended to shave prior to your appointment, or the day of if you can help it, unless you shaved in the morning and are Floating at night. This can make your experience uncomfortable.

It is up to each individual to take caution to prevent slipping or falling as floor surfaces may be wet.

HOW TO FLOAT:
Shape silicone ear plugs into ears.
Shower to remove all oils, creams, makeup, & any hair products, no conditioner needed before you go in to the pod.
Dry your face and be sure to not touch your eyes once you enter the pod.
Step into pod carefully, your choice to leave pod opened or closed, it is recommended to close it, as it will keep the heat in.
Gain comfort in the water, allow the salt to carry you and the warm water to embrace you. Don’t be afraid to adjust your position until you find a comfortable spot, feel free to stretch, move around until you find comfort in the pod. The water will move you around, don’t be alarmed if you suddenly touch the side of the pod.
The front desk will notify you with a 5 minute closing time, then again when your time is up. Please feel free to play your own music during your float. Alexa is provided with Pandora playlist options as well.
When your float time is up, be sure to tilt your head back to wipe any salt water from your face before sitting up.
Open the pod door and exit the pod carefully as floors may still be wet from your shower. Please close the pod lid door upon exiting.
Shower again removing the excess salt from your skin and hair. Should you decide beach wavy hair will work, no need for shampooing a second time, only rinse.
Towel dry and redress!
There is a small area outside of the bathroom and pod room to reapply makeup/blow dry hair (touch ups and dry offs only, please don’t take longer than 10 minutes).
Aster Blue is a home away from home, please treat amenities kindly. **DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, these amenities have been discontinued until further notice.**
