all things in life, practice makes perfect. The more you float, the faster you will ease into a calm state of mind. Each person’s floating experience is unique because we are all built differently. Your body will absorb a lot of magnesium from the Epsom salt, but don’t worry, you won’t overdose. In fact, your body will stop absorbing magnesium once you have reached the optimum levels. Just remember not to drink coffee for four hours beforehand (it can make your system jittery). Also, don’t shave or wax since the saltwater can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal for about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from sounding like an angry monster while you float. If you want to try a luxurious escape from the constant stress of life’s daily pressures, go to Terapung Float, opens from Monday to Sunday from 9 AM to 9 PM at Jl. Drupadi 99A Seminyak. Or call +62 811 8180 999 and e-email float@terapung.com
