Do I need to prepare in any way?
We recommend no shaving, waxing, or tanning 24 hours prior to floating because the high salt content could be irritating. Try not to eat or drink too much an hour before floating but you do not want hunger pains either. A small meal or snack is fine. AVOID CAFFEINE 4 hours before floating!
Do I need to bring anything?
We provide everything that is needed unless you want to bring your own hair brush, flip flops, and towel.
I can’t swim, will I drown?
The high content of Epsom Salt makes the water so buoyant one cannot sink below the surface of the water. Even if you fall asleep you will continue to float.
Is it Okay to float if I am Pregnant?
Of Course! In fact pregnant women probably get more relief from floating than anyone else. Just lying in bed can be extremely uncomfortable for women in their later stages of pregnancy due to the massive gravitational strain placed on the body. The float pod is a great place for the pregnant women to escape the constant pull of gravity on the body. We recommend not to float in your first trimester as this can be very delicate time of the pregnancy.
Can I bring a friend?
You can’t float together in the same pod but we encourage scheduling appointments at the same time with a friend.
What if I’m Claustrophobic?
You have complete control of the lid. Feeling a bit unsure leave the lid open and close it next time. There is an on and off switch to the lights inside the pod as well as an intercom to the receptionist in the lobby. The tank is 2.5 metres long and 1.5 metres wide so it is very spacious. You have total control!
Is the Epsom salt good for my skin?
The Epsom salt has been used to treat skin ailments and it will leave your skin feeling silky smooth and soft.
Are you supposed to bring a swim suit or do you float nude?
We highly recommend that you float in the nude. Swimwear can become a distraction during your float and usually becomes heavy with Epsom salt.
Is it sanitary?
Yes! It is more sanitary than public pools. The salt content / Magnesium Sulfate are so high it kills most microorganisms by itself, just like the Dead Sea. A very small amount of chlorine is added to the water. The filtration system filters the water 4 times between floaters and is also on 24 hours a day when not in use.
Are there any negative side effects?
No. However some first time floaters may experience feeling nauseous or tired, this is actually a good sign as it indicates detoxification and a release of stress from the body.
