The Driftwood mission is to provide our community with the ultimate relaxation in a safe and welcoming setting. We invite you to unwind in our private float room and experience the many benefits floating has to offer. This is your time to relax, heal and grow.

Before Your Float

  • Give yourself enough time to get to your appointment, it's best to avoid rushing into your float as you may find it difficult to relax. If it's your first float arrive 15 minutes early for a full walk through.
  • Try to avoid stimulants like Caffiene before your float, it will help you to relax.
  • Avoid shaving before your float, salty, ouch!
  • Avoid going into the tank full or hungry, it can be distracting and may impact your experience.
  • Turn off your phone or put into aeroplane mode
  • Bring a Towel

During Your Float

  • Dry your face before getting in the tank and avoid touching your face with salty hands, use the face cloth provided
  • Get comfy, have a play with different arm positions to see what will work for you. If your neck is holding tension and won’t relax, you can use the neck support provided to give your head and neck a bit of extra support for a more comfortable float.
  • Lie still, once you figure out how your body wants to be positioned, do your best to remain still during your float. The more you move around, the more water will move you from wall to wall (Pong anyone?). Also, you’ll maintain a more comfortable body temperature by lying still – eventually you won’t even feel where the water and the air meet, it feels like you’re floating in space!
  • Be inquisitive and open-minded, but don’t let your analytical self take too strong a hold. Become absorbed in what psychologists call flow or the zone, allowing yourself to be immersed in the feeling of energised focus, full involvement and enjoyment of the process of floating.

After Your Float

  • Try to plan relaxed time after your float when you can forget about time and schedules, just for a little bit.
  • Stay hydrated and try to avoid caffeine. After a float when you feel energised and refreshed it's nice to eat healthy foods that support your mood.
  • Enjoy an extended break from the grips of technology and experience a connectedness with your introspective, stress-free state of mind. If you couldn't resist taking a few selfies or snaps in the float room, then please tag us on Facebook @driftwoodfloatspa or Instagram @driftwood_floating

What Happens After Your Float?

While the feeling of floating is phenomenal, the real benefit is the long tail of effects after you float. When your central nervous system and brain are given a chance to fully, totally relax they do what they naturally always want to do; increase beneficial neurotransmitters such as endorphins, serotonin and dopamine and, decrease “fight or flight” stress chemicals, such as adrenaline and cortisol.

Some floaters describe a state of being “high” right  after their float; for others the effect can last up to a week.  For many, this adjustment of neurochemistry over time minimises or eliminates symptoms of many chronic conditions.

Check in with your body and mind during the days that follow your float and see how you’re feeling. It’s different for everybody and you are the best judge of how floating is helping you. All it takes is mindfulness.
