Review of my floatlife appointment in Marda Loop:
My appointment was at 8:30am, so I was the first one of the day to use the tank. Everything was extremely clean and easy to check in. They supplied towel, silicon earplugs, facecloth, neck pillow if required and bodywash/shampoo/conditioner. The private room is decently sized considering it is meant for single use; two stools, hooks on the door, nice sized shower and of course the pod. Pod itself was bigger than expected, about the size of a king sized bed and Id guess at least 7 feet tall inside. It had buttons on the inside for lights (pink) and music.
Water in the pod was quite warm and I was surprised with how easy it was to simply float. (Didnt need the neck pillow at all) I found the pink light distracting, so I went with the lights and music off. (Could barely hear the music with earplugs in anyways) I'd say I lasted ~40mins trying to do some deep breathing/not moving before I got a little bored and started messing around. (pushing from wall to wall, stretching, seeing if I could sink myself etc..) When your session is over the lights automatically turn on to signal you to get out and shower. This location didnt seem to have any sort of post float tea lounge, so I showered, paid and went to Starbucks.
For the next few hours I felt extremely relaxed, pretty similiar feeling to just getting out of a massage (minus the soreness) I definitely enjoyed it and the person working there said it normally takes a few times to get used to it and really work on relaxing. At $35 I could see doing it a few times, at $50 Im not so sure. The $35/60mins deal is for the month of March, so it may be worth trying if you are at all interested.
