There’s nothing like stepping into a tank for the first time. As soon as toes touch the water, a warm tingly feeling envelopes the body. Finally, a safe place for thoughts, emotions, aches and pains to leave you.
Upon arrival, you will be guided through the rest of the process by one of our Float Guides!
Floating takes place in a salt water tank with 1000 pounds of Epsom salt in just 200 gallons of water. Meaning that the water is so dense with salt, that anyone can trust the water to hold them up in perfect alignment under zero gravity conditions. The water is heated to 93.5 degrees – average skin temperature. The ideal environment is for one to turn off the lights, though the lights can stay on as well. The idea is to be relieved of as much external stimuli and stress as possible.
Absolutely! The water is filtered between every float for a minimum of 30 minutes (allowing the water to be turned over completely 5 times). We use UV Light and Ozone to filter between each client, as well as daily doses of hydrogen dioxide to keep the water in pristine conditions. The pods are cleaned multiple times a day and are typically cleaner than most contained bodies of water such as pools and Jacuzzis. The high concentration of salt also prohibits the growth of anything pathogenic – so no worries there!
The option is yours! We suggest that you try floating nude to experience full sensory deprivation (without the feeling of the bathing suit on the body), but whatever you are comfortable with is the way to go!
Ideally, yes. The idea is to rest the eyes. Though we do have lights that you can control in the pod! Keep them on the whole time if you’d like. You can even choose your color! 😀
Sure can! The best nap of your life! Many people are worried about turning over in their sleep while in the pod, but if this were to happen, the salinity of the water would irritate the nose and the eyes and instantly wake the floater.
The tanks are 7.5 feet long on the inside, so unless you’re the tallest person on earth, you should be able to fit just fine. People who have exceeded 400 pounds have floated without a problem, so no matter what size you are, the tanks will support you with ease.
No – floatation ion therapy is meant to be a private experience for each individual.
You must be 18 years or older. If you are younger than 18, then the parent/guardian must sign to consent.
You know your child better than anyone – do they enjoy quiet, peaceful environments? Will they be able to sit still for that long? Feel free to be present in the room with your child during the float. It’s always worth a try!
The water is warm but not too hot. We keep the temperature at 93.5 degrees farenheit, which is the average skin temperature. With that maintained, the sensation of skin to water eventually disappears – not too hot, not too cold… just right for the body to sink into the deepest relaxation.
To make the transition into the tank more comfortable, we suggest taking a shower that’s not too hot, maybe even a little cooler, before you enter the water.
Yes! We have a trained team of float guides that will be able to serve a person in any way they need to make sure their float is easy and enjoyable. If one has extra help to come along, such as a family member, they are more than welcome to assist as well.
We suggest that you don’t come feeling too hungry or too full. Try not to eat a big meal right before – perhaps just a small snack.
You can still float! Just be sure that the color has fully set and doesn’t come off when its running in water or dried with a towel. We’d be happy to reschedule if necessary!
Standard float time is 60 minutes, but feel free to float for as long as you like! Whether that’s 2 hours, or up to 5 hours! Each hour is considered a full float, so be sure to look into our memberships to make this experience even more affordable for you. The more ya float, the cheaper it gets 🙂
Floating has a unique effect on every person! Some people get very energized from it and love to float in the morning. Others become deeply relaxed and love to do it late at night. It just depends on you and how it makes ya feel. Both day and night floats have their benefits.
Driving is typically not a problem, though deep relaxation is a significant byproduct of the float experience. Feel free to take your time to get your bearings in our post float area where there will be warm tea, soothing music, comfy chairs, and good company.
This largely has to do with your personal goals. Though let’s just say, you can never float too much. Be sure to check out our memberships! We want to make the float life accessible to as many people as we can!
Please consult a doctor if any of these pre-existing conditions apply to you.
