Do I need to bring anything?
Should I hydrate?
It’s a good idea to be properly hydrated, not just for floating, but all the time! There’s no need to overly hydrate in preparation for your float.
How do you clean the water?
The water in the floatation tanks contains mostly salt, so the solution is sterile. After every guest, our cleaning cycle kicks on. We use Micron Filtration, Ultra Violet Rays, and Ozone Generators to keep the water clean. Our powerful filtration system ensures that every drop of water is filtered between floats, providing our guests with the most sanitary environment possible.The Evolution Filtration System is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size and are FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration).
What if I have color treated hair?
We recommend at least 10 days and several washes after your hair is colored to ensure your color is not affected and to keep hair dye from leaking into the float pod water.
Can I bring a friend?
Please do! You and your friend will each have your own private float room - we only allow one guest per float.
What if I have a skin condition, cut, etc?
We can provide Vaseline to protect any small cuts or rashes (eg eczema). Just ask us for a packet.
What if I fall asleep?
It’s totally safe! In fact, some people enjoy sleeping in float tanks.
What if I’m claustrophobic?
People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating. It’s more like floating in outer space than being in a confined area. The pods are spacious. They are not air tight, so air circulates. You are in complete control: leave the lights on or float with lid open. You can get out at any time.
Will I fit in the float?
Our floats are about 7 ft long x 5 ft wide ….there’s plenty of room and yes, everyone can float in them! The amount of salt in the water guarantees that you will float in the water with no effort on your part.
Can I float if I’m pregnant?
Yes! Floating is wonderful relief for your body, and many women report that it’s a wonderful bonding experience with baby, as you are experiencing the same sensations as your baby. Learn more here.
Is it better to use the sauna before or after the float?
We recommend a 30 minute sauna session prior to your float. This detoxifies your body and opens your pores, allowing the magnesium from the epsom salts to easily absorb into your body. Ask about our membership program - you’ll save money on floating and receive a complimentary sauna visit each month.
How can I be an eco-conscious floater?
We are happy to provide each guest a luxury spa experience, but at your discretion there are actions that can be taken to help keep our planet beautiful. Every towel and robe used consumes water, energy, and detergent. You are welcome to bring your own towel to minimize waste. If you are a regular floater, we suggest getting a pair of reusable ear plugs to help keep plastic out of our oceans. Keeping your pre and post float showers brief can help conserve water.
The light and sound free environment provides deep peace and relaxation and this state of mind provides wonderful health benefits as stress relief, relief from migraine and tension headaches, reduces blood pressure and PTSD.
The environment of floating and not putting any pressure in our body provides many physical benefits of pain relief, joint relief, pregnancy pressure & fatigue and the most important it allows the body to improved healing.
Floating and being expose to sea salt environments provides the health benefits of lowering blood pressure, improving skin and hair, relieves and heals soreness in our muscles and joints and detoxification of our body.
