Floating FAQS

Can I float if I’m pregnant?

Pregnant women love floating!  There is even a special position you can float in that relieves all of the weight of the baby off of the mother’s body.  If you are in your third trimester or have any concerns please consult with your physician prior to booking your appointment.  

Is there anything I should do to prepare?

Avoid caffeinated beverages for several hours beforehand to reduce the chances of having the jitters. Don’t shave or wax at least 8-12 hours since the salt water can irritate your skin. Eating a light meal about an hour to 90 minutes ahead of time stops your stomach from sounding like an angry monster while you float. Other than that there is no specific preparation needed.

Do I have to stay in the whole time?

There aren’t any latches on the suite doors and you can get out anytime.  That said, the 60-minutes usually goes by faster than you would expect.

Can I float if I just dyed my hair?

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.

Do I need to bring anything?

If you have longer hair, you may want to bring a comb.  Also, something to put your contact lenses into while you’re in the suite.  Other than that, we provide everything you need (one towel, earplugs, body wash/shampoo…) Each room is fully private and you go into the suite nude so there’s no need to bring a bathing suit, unless you want to.  Robes, flip flops and an extra towel are available only upon request. 

What if I’m claustrophobic?

Being in the suite is more like floating in outer space than being shut in a box.  You’re always in control of your environment and even people with extreme claustrophobia have reported having no problems with their time in the float suite.

Other question

How do you clean the suite?

The water is fully filtered 4 times between each float, passing through a 10 micron filter and H2O2. The turnover process requires 45-60 minutes and involves manual cleaning of surface areas with white vinegar and other natural cleaning products.

Do I get dehydrated from soaking for so long

No!  Your skin doesn’t even prune up and it become silky soft afterwards!

Can I drown if I fall asleep in there?

Nope.  Some people fall asleep but the water is so buoyant that you stay afloat.  The worst that can happen is maybe getting a bit of salt water in your eyes.
