flotation therapy FAQ

 

What do I need to bring?

You won’t need to bring anything. We supply towels, soap, shampoo, combs, hair dryer and other amenities.

Can I use my own shower products?

To protect the integrity of our equipment, prior to floating, we ask that you please only use the shower products we provide. You are welcome to use your own products after, but please refrain from using heavily perfumed products. No glass bottles, please.

 

What do I wear?

Most floaters choose to wear nothing but you can wear a bathing suit if you feel more comfortable.

You will be asked to shower immediately before and after leaving the tank.

 

Should I arrive early?

Please arrive no more than 10-15 minutes prior to the start of your appointment.  This allows us to tend to our previous floaters and prepare the float rooms for you. 

 

How long can I stay in the tank?

We offer 60 and 90 minute sessions.

Can I get out of the tank at any time?

Yes, you can get out of the tank at any time.

I’m claustrophobic, will I be able to float?

While you are acclimating to the tank, you can float with the door to the tank open.

You may be surprised that this is not an issue as the tanks are large and don’t feel confining.

 

What about getting water in my ears?

Disposable, sanitary ear plugs are supplied.

 

How are the tanks kept clean?

The water is sanitized and fully filtered at least four times between each float. We take a lot of pride in our tank and float room cleanliness.

Can I go in if I am menstruating?

No, you should not enter the float tank if you are menstruating.

 

Can I use the float tank if I am sick?

No, please refrain from coming in if you are under the weather. Please call us to reschedule with as much notice as possible. 

 

What is your cancellation policy?

All cancellations and rescheduling must take place 24 hours before your scheduled appointment, otherwise you you are responsible for the full cost of the service.

 

other things to know before you float

  • If you’ve recently colored your hair, you must wait about two weeks before you float   

  • Avoid caffeine, alcohol or drugs before your float.

 

  • If you have recently gotten a tattoo, you must wait at least 30 days for it to fully heal.
