How do I prepare for my float?
Please arrive five minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Upon arrival, staff will instruct you on the logistics of floating and the process for the appointment. Avoid shaving or waxing 24 hours in advance. Although ear plugs are not mandatory for floating, you will be provided a free set at your first visit. Ear plugs for subsequent floats can be purchased in the front of the store. We recommend eating a light meal before your appointment to avoid your stomach growling during your float- this is loud under water!
Do I need to bring anything with me?
This is up to you. You will be allotted an additional 15 minutes in the float suite following your float session to shower and get ready as needed. You will be provided towels, a washcloth, and a robe to wear during this time. A shower is located within the float suite and is fully equipped with shower essentials including organic shampoo, conditioner, face wash, and body wash. For those needing additional time to get ready, a bathroom is located directly across the hallway from the float suite. The bathroom is stocked with additional organic hair products and toiletries for complimentary use.
What do I wear while floating?
You can either float naked or in a swimsuit. You'll be given total privacy during your float, so whatever you're comfortable with!
How deep is the tank?
Only 10 inches!
I cannot swim, will I float?
No problem! The float tank is similar to the Dead Sea, so full of salt you will float effortlessly.
Is the water cold?
The water is kept at skin temperature so is comfortable to enter. After 10-15 minutes, you probably won't even notice the water!
What if I'm claustrophobic?
The room was designed specifically for you in mind. You will enter the tank by stepping into it, similarly to stepping into a bathtub. The ceiling of the float tank is 7 feet tall to alleviate the feeling of being enclosed or trapped.
Are there lights in the tank?
Yes. There is underwater LED lighting and a starlight ceiling. Both of which can be controlled by the user.
How is the tank cleaned?
The filtration and sanitization systems are designed to turn the water over at least five times between floats. The tank complies with local regulatory requirements and utilizes UV sanitation and particulate filtration.
What if I fall asleep during my float?
No problem! This is common as it is such a relaxing experience. The amount of salt in the tank will ensure you float throughout the duration of your nap.
Are there limitations on who can float?
You cannot float if you have open wounds, a communicable disease, incontinence, or are prone to seizures. Floating can provide great benefit to those who are pregnant, however; we advise you consult with your doctor prior to scheduling an appointment.
Can two people float together?
The tank is designed for single floats. Having more than one person in the tank takes away from the sensory deprivation experience.
Can I float during menstruation?
Yes, as long as you use a tampon or cup, similarly to what you'd use to swim in a pool.
Is the tank handicap accessible?
Our float tank is ADA compliant and includes grab bars at the entrance of the tank. If you are in a wheelchair, entrance to the tank is largely dependent upon your upper body strength. You may bring an assistant to help you access the tank, however we recommend they wait in the lobby during your float.
Will the Epsom salt hurt my hair?
Your hair will get wet, but Epsom Salt is not harsh on it. You're welcome to wear a swim cap during your float in attempt to keep it dry. If you dye your hair, we kindly ask you wait 10 days following treatment to float. If you have red dye in your hair, we ask 30 days following treatment as we've found dye can continue to leave hair and damage the tank. If you have a keratin treatment on your hair, you may want to wear a tight fitting swim cap to protect it from the water as it is typically recommended to avoid salt water following smoothing treatment.
