A few months ago, I was walking along the Danforth and noticed a storefront that said “H2O Float Spa….Opening Soon”. When I got home I looked them up and added them to my facebook feed so I could follow their updates. (a smart move).
Over the last months, I was intrigued with what I was seeing on their facebook page.
After months of anticipation, they finally opened their doors on April 11th. Naturally I wanted to try it - STAT. So on Sunday, I had the opportunity to try it. Lucky me!!
Here’s what I experienced:
a) I walked in and was warmly greeted by Shelley (who is the owner). I was given a pair of shower shoes and then we proceeded into the change room where I was given a fluffy robe and 2 towels as well as a locker and a key.
b) We then went in the room where the pod was located. I was instructed to shower (including washing my hair) before entering the pod. Once I was in the pod, I could shut the pod door whenever I wanted. There was also a call button in the pod in the event I had a question etc.
As soon as I was alone, I went into the pod and shut the door. I did not feel claustrophobic at all, as their was a glowing blue light. (which I had the option of turning on or off) I floated for an hour – and felt totally relaxed. I swear I don’t know where time passed. Perhaps I slept. I could not tell you. LOL.
ps if you aren’t inclined to try the pod then there is a massive open bath where you can float – as an alternative.
c) the jets kick in after an hour – and this indicates that my “float” is over. Sniff.
d) I then showered and got back into clothes. Sniff.
e) a bottle of water and sliced orange awaits you after your float – which I welcomed!!
Here’s a few suggestions for your visit:
-If you wear contact lenses..either bring your glasses or your contact lens case. However I would strongly suggest NOT to wear you contact lenses during the float. Inevitably the salt water is going to drip into your eye and it’s not going to feel pleasant
-Bring a washcloth/handcloth/towel – INTO the pod with you. Again, back to the salt water that is inevitably going to get into your eye.
-Don’t forget your hairbrush, make up etc.
Conclusion: Would I do it again? In a heart beat. Was it relaxing? YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
Would I give a gift certificate to a friend? Totally.
