Thank you for buying a Beginner package! We’ve found that “three times is the charm” when trying floating. The first float is all about the novelty, and the second is about breaking any expectations about floating you might have brought with you. After floating three times you should start to have a good sense of what floating might do for you.
How often should I float? We field this question frequently, and of course every person is different: maybe a monthly refresh is perfect, or maybe you need a weekly float – or more – to feel your best. But how do you figure it out? One possibility is to float every week for a month, and then start widening the intervals: float every other week for a bit, then every three, then once a month. Somewhere in there, your body will tell you what’s right for you.
By the way – to help you answer this question for yourself, our membership is flexible and includes two free bonus floats to use in the first month!
If you’d like to learn more about floating, our blog is a great starting place. You might find these posts interesting:
If you haven’t signed up for our monthly newsletter, you can do that here. (Our archive is here, if you want to see what we’re up to first). Consider following us on social media too, if you haven’t already. We’re @FloatBoston on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Interested in why and how floating works? Here’s everything in our blog tagged “science,” and we also love ClinicalFloatation.com for their archive of float-related research.
Finally, did you know that you can save and reuse our provided silicone earplugs multiple times? We also sell Elvex earplugs at FLOAT for $5. You may also bring your own, but avoid foam earplugs! They’re comfy, but you’ll be hanging out all float listening to the tick-tick-tick of water slowly infiltrating the foam.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
