Floating

In a magnesium rich Epsom salt solution that is more buoyant than the Dead Sea, you will float effortlessly. Nothing can reach you, the outside world is non-existent. The water maintained at body temperature will lead you to lose track of the boundary between the water and your body.

Choose between darkness or light in the pod. Listen to calming music in the beginning and end of the float. Feel the liberation of no gravitational pull on your body as you float. Experience to be in that state between being awake and asleep. It might be followed by an incredible night`s sleep and a calm mind.

  • Our aim at Metime is to promote our treatments to an audience as wide as possible. But there is a few inevitable restrictions in terms of hygiene, health and safety. It is your responsibility to read our waiver and notify us of all medical conditions and medications.


  • Before floating
    • Avoid large or heavy meals beforehand. But try to have eaten something. If not, you may well spend most of your float listening to the sounds of your stomach.
    • Avoid shaving or waxing directly beforehand as this may be irritating with the epsom salt in the water. Avoid shaving your face for at least 6 hours prior to your float and allow 12 hours after shaving your body.
    • You are not permitted to float whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
    • Avoid caffeine, nicotine or any or stimulants in the lead up to a float. These may interfere with your ability to relax.
    • Do not use hair dye or fake tan. Your hair must run clear in the shower.
    • Remove your contacts prior to floating. Bring a container to store them.

      How to get the best floating experience?
    • Put in earplugs.
    • Quick shower with soap and shampo your hair.
    • Recline in the float pod naked. Shut the lid or leave it open.
    • Choose to have lights on or off in the pod. Let us know if you want music all the time, or just in the beginning and end of the session.
    • An hour of bliss.
    • Sound will always gently fade in to welcome you back.
    • Rinse off, especially your ears.
    • Reflect as you relax after in our relax room.


      For your information

    It often takes up to three sessions for you to experience or start to noticeably appreciate the benefits of floating. During the first session, play around and enjoy the sensation of floating. Find a position that is comfortable for you. For the next two sessions, just try and completely let go and relax.

    Use a neck rest if you wish (we will have it at Metime during july). You will be surprised at how far you have to tilt your head back to completely relax. Try floating your hands interlocked behind the back of your head with your chest pushed out or with your arms by your sides.

    After three floats, you can start to be more focused with each session. Write pre float intentions, use different meditation techniques, try different audio and try longer sessions.

    Ultimately, there’s no wrong way to float. Keep the lights off or turn them on. Listen to music or float in silence. Leave immediately or hang out after in our relax room. You float any way you like. It’s what works best for you.
