Before You Arrive

How It Began


Flotation tanks were invented by a neuroscientist named John C Lilly in the 1950s, who was using sensory deprivation as a part of his experiments on human metaprogramming. He developed the first version of what has evolved into the modern float tanks and rooms that you see today. Through his work he discovered benefits of using a float tank combined with the removal of external sensory input. 

When You Arrive

Enjoy The Bliss

​After the float is over, feel free to hang out, read, chat,or just bask in your post-float glow. Stay as long or as little as you like after your float is over.

Plan For Your Visit

  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. We will greet you, offer a tour and answer any of your questions; we want you to feel welcome and relaxed.
  • You will change into a robe, leaving your belongings in your personal locker, (please place your cell phone on silent and leave it in your locker).
  • If you need to remove any makeup etc you can do so in the vanity area as to not impact your float schedule, (makeup remover and supplies will be available).
  • To start your relaxation journey, you will spend 15-20 minutes in a zero-gravity massage chair. (This will get you in the right frame to start your float)  
  • Once you enter the float room, shower to remove oils, fragrances and hair products; all shower and float essentials are provided for you.
  • Dry your face to avoid distracting water droplets, insert your foam ear plugs and step into the tank.
  • Lie back, resting your head into the water, legs extended and arms over your head or extended at your side. Your ears will be under the water line, but your face will remain above it. A floating halo is available to support your head and neck if you need to. Find what’s comfortable for you.
  • The audio and lights will fade out leaving you in total darkness and silence to enjoy your float journey. (Both lights and sound are fully configurable to suits your preference)
  • The audio will gently fade on and a chime will sound when your session is complete.
  • Exit the tank, then shower again to remove any salty residue and please exit the room to make way for our next floater.
  • No need to rush away; continue to relax in the post float room or enjoy some conversation in our communal area. Tea and water are provided.

How it Works

Important Reminders

  • Don't shave 8 hours before (salt can sting open cuts). 
  • Nothing to bring but an open mind. 
  • Everything you need is provided (towel, ear plugs, shampoo, conditioner, and make-up remover). 
  • Swimsuit not necessary. 
  • Preferably no caffeine. 
  • Light meal an hour before your float (suggested, but not necessary as both a full or an empty stomach can be distracting while floating). 
  • Arrive about 15 minutes before your float to get checked in and acquainted with the space

What To Expect


You float for at least an hour in a room that is filled with about 10” of skin temperature water that has a high concentration of magnesium sulfide, otherwise known as Epson salt. By increasing the density of the water with Epson salt, your body will float effortlessly giving you the effect of being in a zero-gravity environment. This allows your spine to decompress and realign, relieving back & neck pain, as well as helping with muscular or joint pain.

Most importantly floating provides you with the perfect environment to unplug from your over stimulated environment and offers a complete relaxation experience to recharge, heal and detoxify. Epsom salt also has a high level of magnesium that your body absorbs replenishing and softening your skin. It is the ultimate mattress!

If for any reason, you cannot attend the scheduled float time, please contact us at info@blissfulwatersfloat.com or by phone at 281-978-4037. Please be aware that our rooms are reserved especially for you therefore appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice prior to the scheduled start time will incur a fee of 50% of the full price. No call, no shows will be charged 100% of the services scheduled. Gift certificates or vouchers will be marked as used.

Please ensure that you arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time for your first float and 10 minutes for subsequent floats. If you are more than 10 minutes late, we will need to reschedule to avoid scheduling conflicts. No refund will be given. Thank you for your understanding.

To start off we recommend trying at least 3 floats as floating has a learning curve and accumulation effect. The more often you float the better and more effective it becomes.
