What do we want? Better health!
When do we want it? NOW!

I don’t know about you but I’ve committed to my health this year in more ways than I ever have before. I’m getting up regularly with the sun, keeping my body hydrated, making healthy food choices, staying consistent with my movement practice and frequently floating. My main focus is on self care and achieving better health. I’m talking less pain and more relief – regularly!

On a recent trip, a fellow traveler sparked up a conversation with me about my health and wellness routine. “How often do you float?” “Does it help with your headaches?” “How often do the benefits last?” That little talk inspired this How Often to Float guide — Check it out!


A Monthly Float (1 Float / Month)

A monthly float gives a person their foundation for a monthly self care routine and can be a great way to give the body a much needed reset.

  • Recommended for those with little to no pain and an active lifestyle.
  • One float per month is the best choice for those on a budget.
  • A monthly boost when you need it most
  • Best for those with a very busy schedule
  • A revival of the senses and a monthly opportunity for reflection and goal setting

A Bi-Monthly Float (2 Floats / Month)

Floating twice per month can give you an energy boost, keep you aligned, and strengthen the immune system by allowing you to catch up on rest.

  • Recommended for those who are seated daily for long periods of time. Help to realign the spine, decrease inflammation, and reduce pain.
  • Recommended for clients with a moderately active routine to aid in recovery
  • Reduce symptoms of moderate to mild chronic pain and migraines

A Weekly Float (4 Floats / Month)

Floating weekly can help provide extended relief for chronic pain, improve overall mental health, and help achieve next-level performance.

  • Recommended for athletes, trainers, and those with an active lifestyle
  • Training and/or preparation for an upcoming event, exam, competition, or trip.
  • Increase feelings of serenity and well-being
  • Help reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression
  • Improve sleep quality and prevent insomnia

A Daily Float (Unlimited Floating)

If you are looking for a fast track to transforming your life—whether it is mentally, physically, emotionally or spiritually—consider floating more frequently for the first month or two before switching to one of the maintenance programs above.

  • The best choice for rehabilitation or recovering from an injury.
  • Preparation for a significant event or major competition
  • Help break a habit, or help form new ones
  • Float more frequently to aid with lucid dreaming and profound meditation states
  • A great method of self reflection / journaling
  • A “fast-track” to your highest potential – establish a solid foundation of mind, body, & spirit for peak performance

The potential of floating is maximized when you can develop a “float schedule” that fits with your unique goals and challenges. Recent studies show that consistent and frequent float sessions are the key to obtaining full range of benefits.

 So, what’s your float schedule look like?
