Floatation FAQ

Posted in:

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
Just yourself. Towels, showers, soap and shampoo, ear-plugs, including hair dryer etc. for your float will be provided at check-in.If you have long hair, you may want to bring a hair tie and comb for after your float.

IS THE EPSOM SALT GOOD FOR MY SKIN?
Epsom salt has actually been used for treating skin ailments and will leave your skin feeling smooth and silky. We also sell our epsom salt for use at home between floats.

WHAT IF I’M CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating. You’re always in control of your environment, and can choose to float with the pod open.

CAN I DROWN IF I FALL ASLEEP?
No. The 10.5 inches of water are so bouyant you can’t help but float at the top. Some people do choose to sleep in the pods.

HOW IS THE WATER KEPT CLEAN?
The organic highly sterile salt water is fully filtered three times between each float and is sanitized with bromine.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
Absolutely! You can’t float together in the same pod, but you can book floats at the same time.

IS IT SAFE TO FLOAT IF I AM PREGNANT?
Not only is it safe but it’s encouraged! Some say floating is “a pregnancy must!” Floating allows you to escape the added stress and weight of pregnancy by being in a weightless environment, taking the strain off of your body. We have also heard testimonies that it is an awesome way to bond with your baby.

FLOATING IS ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT YOU WON’T BE DOING.
You wont be fighting gravity while you lie effortlessly on your back. The water and air in the float pods are kept at skin temperature – 36.5 to 37degrees. This means you lose track of where you body ends and the water and air begins.Your ears sit just below the water line and means noise from the outside is reduced. After you settle in to the float pod and hit the light switch, you float in total darkness.For the next hour the outside world is gone, and amazing things happen.It turns out that when you’re not fighting gravity or constantly taking in
information your body has a lot of extra resources at its disposal.Your mind is free to mull things over without distraction, your brain pumps out dopamineand endorphins, and your body gets to rest, de-stress, and heal.
