Frequently Asked Questions
This might all be new to you. In fact, it probably is. So let us help calm your nerves by answering some of those questions all of us had the first time we floated.
We are committed to creating a clean environment for our guests. Our float pods have a 5-micron filter, and use both ozone and UV light to sanitize the water constantly whenever they are not in use. The entire tank is treated at least 4 times between each session. Additionally, the high salt content naturally inhibits microbial growth.
This is a major concern for many guests before their first float. That usually changes once they realize that they control their entire experience. The pod lid can be left completely or partially open, and there are buttons inside that control whether you want light and/or music during your float. Once guests are able to relax comfortably in the pod, they often experience a feeling of expansiveness instead of one of constriction.
No problem! The buoyancy of the saltwater keeps the body effortlessly afloat. If you do happen to toss and turn, getting any saltwater in the eyes or mouth will be unpleasant enough to wake you immediately.
Just the opposite! Because we use a magnesium salt instead of a sodium-based one, guests leave with soft, hydrated skin. The salt is also a great exfoliant!
We recommend abstaining from caffeine and other stimulants for several hours before you float. Also avoid shaving or waxing right before, as the salt may irritate any open wounds.
We recommend bringing loose fitting clothing as the rooms can get a little humid and clothing will stick. Some guests also come with a specific playlist or guided meditation they’d like to listen to. Otherwise, we provide the rest: towels, ear plugs, shower products, hair dryer, etc… Of course, you are welcome to bring your own if you’d like.
A float session is generally 60 minutes long, however many guests end up preferring longer floats of 90 minutes to 2 hours. Ask us about how to schedule an extended float.
If you’ve just dyed your hair red, we ask that you wait a few weeks. Our tanks have a hard time removing color from the water.
We recommend checking with your doctor first, but many pregnant women have found benefits from floating in their second and third trimesters, including pain relief and feeling a deeper connection with their baby.
