You may float nude or in a swimsuit – whatever you are most comfortable with. You will be in a completely private suite with a private shower.
Avoid shaving your body or face for at least 12 hours before you float. Epsom salt might irritate any micro-abrasions from shaving.
Minor abrasions can be covered with vaseline (which we provide) to help prevent irritation from the Epsom salt.
Yes, just take the same precautions while floating as you would if you were swimming.
Yes, pregnant women in all trimesters can enjoy the relaxation and physical relief of floating, but as a precaution please check with your physician.
We’d recommend allowing at least two weeks after you have received a new tattoo before floating.
While there is no guarantee that the salt won’t strip some color from your hair, we recommend that you check if the water running through your hair in the shower at home is fully clear. If there is still some color coming out you should wait a couple of more days/showers.
There is a chance that this may effect your treatment. If you are unsure, please consult your hair stylist.
We would recommend avoiding caffeine the day you float, or for at least 6 hours before you float. Caffeine may overstimulate your mind.
Floating on an empty or full stomach may be distracting while floating. We’d recommend eating 1.5-2 hours before you float.
during your float
We use a state-of-the-art filtration system to filter the entirety of the water through a 1 micron filter a minimum of three times after each float (most other float centers only do this once).
Skimmers are used to keep the surface completely clear.
UV, Hydrogen Peroxide, & Ozone
High powered antimicrobial ultraviolet light units attached to the pump system blast the water as it filters.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used as a disinfectant in the tanks – a non-toxic alternative to chlorine and bromine.
Ozone (O3) – one of nature’s basic elements most commonly recognizable after thunderstorms by its sweet, fresh smell – is the safest, most effective water purifier available. It maintains water’s soft, clean and crystal clear appearance, while adding no harmful chemicals. After ozone does its job, it quickly reverts to Oxygen (O2), creating bacteria-free, oxygen-rich air supply. Exhaust fans in the suites extract air up and out of the building, meaning that the air in the tanks is fresh and clean for each guest.
We rigorously measure and maintain the pH, alkalinity, specific gravity, and temperature of the tanks.
The incredibly high salt content of the water (about 10 times more than normal sea water) prevents bacteria and other micro-organisms from surviving – the Dead Sea is named that for a reason.
This is cleaner than any hot tub or swimming pool, meaning our float suites are likely to have some of the cleanest water you’ve ever been in.
Each of our float tanks is in its own individual suite that can be locked from the inside.
Each suite includes a shower stocked with Body Wash, Shampoo, Conditioner, a Wash Cloth, and 2 Towels.
The Changing Room is located outside of the suites for the safety of all of our guests, and every suite includes a Robe (available in 2 sizes) to wear and Float Tote to carry clothes and personal items from the suite to the changing room.
Additional amenities provided in the suites include: A&D Ointment, Makeup Remover Wipe, Q-Tips, Earplugs, Hair Tie, Contact Case and Lens Solution, Tissues, and Spray Deodorant.
Currently we have 4 float tank options that guests may choose from. The Float Light Cabin, the Star Light Cabin, the Orb Light Pod, and the Star Ship Pod.
All of the tanks have a base light in the water and music that plays during the float. Both of these will stay on unless turned off using the buttons conveniently located inside of the tanks.
Whichever tank style you choose, the float experience is virtually the same, especially if you turn the lights off.
Cabins are typically recommended for guests with moderate to severe claustrophobia, since they are so roomy.
Pods are recommended for guests who have mobility limitations since the threshold is lower and they are easier to get in and out of.
The Orb Light Pod and Star Ship Pod are traditional freestanding float tanks. Each Pod is shaped like a giant egg, opens up like a clamshell, and has an oval basin filled with 10.5 inches of water.
The Pods are 4’7″ wide in the middle and 8’8″ long (longer than the cabins!). When the lid is fully closed the apex is 4’3″ tall, which means there is roughly 3 feet of space between your body and the lid above you, although guests do not have to close the lid unless desired.
Both Pods have a raised diamond texture on the tank floor (like a bathtub) for safety.
The Float Light Cabin and Star Light Cabin are large rectangular tanks set into the wall that are accessed through a door.
The threshold is 20″ from the floor and each Cabin is filled with 11″ of water.
The Cabins are 6’11” wide and 8’4″ long, with a ceiling height of 7’8″, large enough to stand straight up in.
The Star Light Cabin has optional fiber-optic stars on the ceiling; the Float Light Cabin has a blank ceiling.
Both Cabins have a rough-textured grip (like sandpaper) on the threshold and on the tank floor for safety.
We recommend that people who have never floated before try the experience alone first to get the full benefit of Floatation Therapy. Floating is meant to help clear your mind of distractions and having another person inside the tank with you can be very distracting and may take away from the overall experience.
We have 4 float tanks so it is usually very easy to book for 2 people to come in together and float in their own separate tanks.
For those who have experience with floating alone and want to try Partner Floating, the Float Light Cabin can be set up to accommodate 2 people.
Some things to know about Partner Floating:
The Cabin doors and Pod lids do not have any locking mechanism, and guests may exit their float at any time for any reason.
During a first float especially, the brain may get fidgety and bored since it is not used to sensory deprivation. This is totally normal and may even prove to you just how important giving your mind a chance to stop and rest really is. And we promise it gets easier and easier every time you float.
Although, for individuals with more serious issues – such as severe claustrophobia, PTSD, and panic disorders – it is important to know and respect your own limits and not force yourself to stay in an environment that causes you distress. Come out to the lounge and have tea instead!
Some guests find floating so relaxing that they drift into a peaceful sleep. That is perfectly ok and safe. The density of the salt water makes your body so buoyant, you would have to try flip over. So don’t be afraid to let go and if you do fall asleep, it may just be the best nap you’ve ever had!
Just the opposite. Your skin becomes super-hydrated as water carries in the magnesium from the Epsom salt, a mineral deficient in most bodies.
No swimming required. You’ll simply float on top of the water.
