Do I need to bring anything?
We will provide towels, ear plugs, and products to use in the shower before and after your float. If you wear
contacts, do be sure to bring a lens case and contact solution with you. If you use special hair or skincare
products, feel free to bring them.
What if I'm claustrophobic?
People with claustrophobia consistently report having a pleasant experience while floating. Once inside the
tank, you are able to lose awareness of the walls around you and this allows you to rest in an experience of
formless spaciousness. As well, you remain in total control of the experience and are able to keep the door
open or the lights on if you choose.
Can I drown if I fall asleep?
No! You may fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant you stay afloat.
How are the tanks kept clean?
The highly sterile salt water in the tanks is kept clean with a triple filtration process. First, we use a 1 micron
filter that is FDA compliant for drinking water. Second, a combination of ozone and germicidal UV light
disinfection creates a powerful oxidant that instantly oxidizes contaminants in the pool. Then we run this
filtration through a total of 3 complete returns.
Can I float if I'm menstruating?
Yes, just follow the same protocol as if you were going to the pool.
Can I float if I'm pregnant?
Yes! In the 2nd and 3rd trimester, floating is said by many to provide relief from the stress and strain of
pregnancy by allowing your body to float in a weightless environment. Be sure to consult with your physician
before coming to float.
When should I arrive for my first float?
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before your float to give yourself time to check in and transition into the
Why is it necessary to shower before and after my float?
Showering before the float helps rinse and cleanse your body before entering the tank. Showering after the
float helps to remove any epsom salt from your body before you dress. Also, showering before and after
functions as a nice sensory transition for entering and exiting your float experience.
Can I float longer than 60 minutes?
You can! Please inquire about extended float lengths at the time of booking at the center. We will be happy to discuss this with you.
Will my skin wrinkle and prune?
Not only will your skin not get wrinkled and pruney, but the epsom salt will leave your skin feeling smooth and
soft. We do recommend continuing to drink plenty of water throughout the rest of the day as your body will
absorb the Epsom salt, which is a good thing!
