As ambiguous as it sounds, any time is a great time to float. Try out different times of day and see which works best for you. Some people prefer before work, and some prefer after. But after a strenuous workout or yoga class is always a popular choice.
YES! Floating while pregnant is amazing, and we highly recommend it. During your second and third trimester, floating can help to relieve joint pain and ease swelling. Not to mention you can comfortably (and safely) lie on your stomach. Mention during booking so we can be sure to show you the extra awesome prop for mamas to be.
Floating is a practice and the more you commit to it, like the gym or yoga, the more you will get out of it. In a perfect world everyone would be able to float once a week, but we understand that this is not acheivable for some people. We recommend every 2 weeks and at an absolute minimum once a month.
Most people who think they are claustrophobic find that they don’t actually have any issues once they see our float rooms. Our tanks are comparable to a california king size bed and you are in complete control of your environment…afraid of the dark? No problem! just leave the lights on or lay back and gaze at the stars on the ceiling. Your float is fully customizable from the lights to the music. You can even choose one of the guided meditations we have available.
There is 1500 pounds of Epsom salt dissolved in each of our tanks. The float solution’s high salinity level alone makes it impossible for bacteria and microorganisms to survive. After each session, the entire body of water is pumped and filtered through a 4 part filtration and sterilization system three times. Our filtration system is able to filter particles from the water to 1 micron in size and is FDA compliant for drinking water (Class 1 Filtration). After that we blast it with UV light, dose it with food grade hydrogen peroxide and treat it with ozone. After that it’s good to go. In addition, everyone is required to take a shower before entering the tank in order to wash off body oil, make up, hair products, etc.
Each float is booked for either 60 or 90 minutes plus shower time but you are free to get out whenever you like.
This answer is simple..nothing! you float nude just like you would have inside your mothers womb, birthday suit and all.
YES floating is 100% safe on your period. We just ask that you wear either a diva cup or tampon during your session.
*pro-tip: depending where you are in your cycle, the solution can cause irritation to your lady bits.. Applying a thin layer of ointment (provided in the room) can help to alleviate this.
We should have everything you need to enjoy your experience. Those who wear contacts will need to bring solution and cases and please bring a hairbrush if needed.
We don’t offer couples floats, but all of our tanks run at the same times. So although you won’t be floating together, you will still be able to share your experiences afterwards and bask in that post-float glow together.
Yes! We have floated children as young as 6 in our tanks and we love our littlest floaters. There are some things to keep in mind though:
Our tanks are kept around 94 degrees celcius, which is roughly the same temperature of your skin. You shouldn’t feel hot or cold, and you shouldn’t be able to tell where your body ends and the solution begins, once you have found your perfect temperature. However we know that everyone is different! We are able to bump the temperature up slightly and turn the fans off if you found your previous float a little chilly, and we also have the ability to turn the temp down slightly and air it out for you if you found it a bit too hot. Please speak to a member of our team when you come in if you would like to adjust the temperature!
Unfortunately no. This is something as an industry we are working on behind the scenes, but we aren’t there yet. Floating is such a new modality and much like acupuncture wasn’t covered years ago, these things take time. We have had some clients who were successful claiming our service through their health spending account though, so we always recommend that you reach out to your specific provider and inquire! Also, if you do have benefits, sending in your receipts to them helps us to show that this is a service that people want coverage for.
