1.What to do beclipboardfore you arrive:
Make an appt – we will confirm with you the day before. Reschedule if you have recently received any stitches, cuts, surgeries, tattoos, developed a severe rash or have done spray tanning or hair coloring within the last 5 days. Avoid irritated skin, don’t wax or shave before coming.  And don’t wear  contact lenses, or bring extras.  We do supply case & solution for you to use if  you forget.
doorsign2.Arriving at Soothing Solutions: As you arrive at Soothing Solutions you will be greeted with a cozy spa like atmosphere of a fireplace, aromatherapy, the trickle of water, candle light & soft music.
What sets us apart from other float centers is that we are owned & operated by a Holistic Practitioner with over 17 years of floating experience. Our priority is to help you discover the amazing benefits & possibilities the tank has to offer. If this is your first float it includes a detailed orientation & we will sit and chat about what floating is like, making sure any questions or concerns are answered. We will give you plenty of tips on how to have a great first float. Also, since we consider the 1st float a practice float, we give you your second session free.
float room3.Our Float Room:
The moment you step into the room you know you are in for the ultimate relaxing experience. As you close the door behind you, the glow of the room soothes your spirit. You are already forgetting about that stressful world you are about to leave behind you.
1209141230a4.Your Float: With a mirrored vanity, ear plugs, towels and all amenities you might need at your fingertips, you put your earplugs in and take a brief shower. Naked as the day you were born, you open the door of the tank and step right from the shower into the tank. You slip into the silky warm solution where the quiet and darkness welcomes you to “float” into deep relaxation. The water only 10” deep, with 800lbs of Epsom salts makes it impossible for you to sink. You just sit down on the bottom of the tank and slowly lay back as you feel the water gently lift you off the bottom and cradle you into an almost weightless comfort. Try different positions, enjoy the solitude and serenity. Become friends with the tank. Let your mind flow and ebb until it’s usual chatter subsides. It’s ok if you lose track of time, or even fall asleep.
clock5.When your time is up: Music will let you know when your time is done. Stretch, breathe deep & bring yourself to the real world. The water is the same temp as your skin, you won’t feel it as it runs towards your eyes, so as you sit up, push the salt solution back away from your face. Slowly open the door & step out as the world welcomes you back with a candle lit shower.
Tank Thoughts6.Reacclimate Yourself. It may take a few moments to acclimate yourself back to the hustle & bustle of life. Some say the world seems clearer & sharper. We would love to hear about your experience. Before you leave, please stop to write something on the “Tank Thoughts Wall Scroll” a brief description, a sentence, one word summary or a sketch. Leave feeling tranquil, relaxed, refreshed and with a sense of spiritual wholeness that stays with you long after the float is through.
