FAQ'S

How often should I float?

There are no rules as to how often you should float, however when you start floating, it is ideal if you are able to manage several floats within a fairly short time say one float per 1-2 week for 3-5 sessions.  We know that this isn’t always possible however & most people will find they feel real benefit from even just one float.For long-term benefits, it is preferable to float regularly (monthly or weekly) to help maintain reduced stress levels,  muscle tension & improve overall well-being rather than using it as a reactionary treatment when stress & tension levels are already high.  The common sense approach that prevention is better than cure also applies to floating. 

Is there anything I should do to prepare?

Try to abstain from caffeine or other stimulants for several hours beforehand. Also, try not to wax or shave the day of your float since the salt water will sting irritated/sensitive skin— the same goes for fresh tattoos and more serious cuts or scrapes. Eat a light meal an hour or two ahead of time to keep your stomach from making potentially distracting noise.

Can two people float together?

It is physically possible for two people to float together, but we do not permit more than one person in the tank at a time.  Once you have floated you will realise that the experience is quite personal and worrying about disturbing someone else lying next to you really defeats the purpose of the experience. 

Can I float if I just dyed my hair?

Unfortunately, there's no guarantee that the Epsom salt won’t strip some color from your hair. If you're willing to take that risk all we ask is that you've given time for the dye to set, and that no color comes out when you shower at home. If your hair dye doesn't leach out onto your towels after drying, then you should be alright in the tank.

Do I wear anything inside of the tank?

Floating is a private experience, so most people don’t wear anything. To get the most out of R.E.S.T. we recommend floating in the nude.

Will I drown if I fall asleep?

Nope. Some people fall asleep, but the water is so buoyant that everyone, whatever shape or size, floats effortlessly. Just remember not to wipe your eyes when you wake or else you’ll be in for a short bout of saltwater pain.

What if I’m claustrophobic?

People with claustrophobia consistently report no problems with floating; being in the tanks feels more like drifting in a vast empty space than being "trapped" inside of a box. Just remember that you’re in total control of the environment and can get in and out of the tank anytime.

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 before coming in.

I just got a tattoo, should I float?

Floating and fresh tattoos do not mix! Not only could floating with a fresh tattoo be painful (salt + open wounds = ouch) but the water solution could cause fading or discoloration of your tattoo and permanently ruin its aesthetic appeal. How long you should wait before floating depends on the tattoo and how quickly it heals, but tattoo artists/floaters we have talked to have suggested waiting 4-6 weeks. 

Will my skin get dehydrated from soaking for so long?

No- your skin doesn’t even prune up, but it does become silky soft afterwards. 

How do you clean the tanks?

Between each float, the water is filtered multiple times through a 1-10 micron filter, and treated with UV light, Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide.

NOTICE:

  • A 24-hour cancellation notice IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED, or it will count as one of the Ozone/Float sessions.


  • Missed appointments or late arrivals are NOT rescheduled and are counted as one of the Ozone/Float sessions.
