What should I do to prepare for my float?

 - No caffeine for several hours before your float is a good idea.
 - A light meal one hour to ninety minutes before your float can keep the tummy growlers at bay.
 - Try not to shave or wax just before your float. 
- Wearing loose fitting clothing can make getting dressed after your float much easier.

How are we keeping you safe during Covid?

 - We keep our float solution between 40-100 ppm of peroxide, run 3 cycles through a 1 micron filter and run a 5 minute cycle of ozone between every floater. 

 - The ozone treatment is also highly effective at sanitizing the air, but in addition to that we  run an exhaust fan in every room for 45 minutes between floats.

- Each room is cleaned and sanitized between every floater. 

- We are allowing extra times between floater for more thorough cleaning and to cut down on interactions between people coming in to float and floaters getting out of the tanks.

What do I need to bring to my appointment?

- We provide:  
     Make-up remover, wash cloths, body gel, shampoo, conditioner, towels, lotion, disposable silicon ear plugs and  we even have mirrored stations with hair dryers for after your float and shower.

We ask that you not float if you have henna ink or have a tattoo less than 2 weeks old. It is also recommended that you wait 2 weeks after your hair dye to float. A great way to ensure that our water won't be contaminated, is to take a shower and wash your hair, then dry off with a white towel. If you don't see any dye you are good to go! If  you do, then please delay your float. Our very expensive float solution will thank you.

- Nothing. Your room is completely private and you shower before and after your float, so no clothing is necessary. Bathing suits can be distracting during a float but if it is your preference, feel free to wear what makes you comfortable.

- You are in complete control of your environment and can choose to the have light or the star ceiling on at any time. You are also free to leave the door/lid partially or fully open. Floating is a relaxing and releasing experience, and while  claustrophobia is a common concern, we have found these concerns to drift away after the first float. In fact, floating often provides relief from such anxieties.

Are there people who shouldn't float?

We ask that you not float if: 

 

- Awesome! The float solution is only 12 inches deep and you are extremely buoyant, so if you doze off it is perfectly safe. It is common to drift in and out of different states of consciousness throughout your float.

- There are 1000 pounds of medical grade Epsom salt dissolved in each tank. This saline solution, on its own, does not allow microorganisms to flourish like they might in an untreated pool or hot tub.  In addition, the solution is run through three cycles of  a filtration and sterilization process which includes a 1 micron filter and 40-100ppm of food grade hydrogen peroxide an 5 minute treatment of ozone. It is then passed through a  UV light that, when combined with the peroxide, provide the industry's leading sanitation without any harsh chemicals like chlorine. And, this process is environmentally friendly!

Is this just some new age fad?

Actually,  floating has been around for over 50 years and has a lot of well-designed research by super smart people to back it up.  The first float pod was developed in 1954, by neuroscientist, Dr John C. Lilly, who needed to eliminate incoming sensory information to create a control group for his experiments.  He ended up discovering that sensory deprivation has a lot of benefits that have been studied and explored ever since.
